We have stayed here previously and keep coming back. The location being so close to the airport suits us and the tram and bus service almost at the door is convenient for those shopping trips or coffee in Melbourne CBD. The staff are great and welcoming. We were hosting a conference at the property and had the most wonderful support... More
