Stayed at the Hemisphere for the first time on a recent 3 day business trip to Melbourne. Very modern and clean accomodation with large rooms and pleasant efficient staff. My room was on the ground floor and included a large corner spa bath. The bathroom was also large with the only real negative being the shower over the spa bath... More

Family of 6 stayed for 2 nights in 2 rooms which were very well appointed and had all the extras you would expect in a hotel double the price. The service was great and staff professional and friendly. Location is close to Brighton which is a great place for brunch, shopping etc and on the train line to the MCG,... More

I stayed here for a night in December 2012. Check in service was exemplary- fast, friendly and efficient. The room was very well set up and very spacious. Everything was clean and well stocked. The corner spa was a bonus though I did use it, I didn't turn on the spa as it was late so I can't comment on... More

Very impressed with the level of facility here. Modern executive styling. Professional set up. Very clean. Only complaint is that there were no meals or room service available when we arrived on Sunday which meant walking to a couple of take away food shops nearby. Free movie channels. Lovely big spa bath.

This hotel was in a very good location and the rooms were very good, but unfortunately the web site did not mention that there is no bar or restaurant at weekends, which is when we stayed. The reception staff at weekends were not all that good but this did not affect our stay.

There's not a lot of choices in this part of Melbourne and needing to be close by for a family function the Hemisphere suited our needs. If driving pay attention to the address as signage is very difficult to see and we actually drove right past it the first time. We had a spa room on the ground floor and... More

I recently stayed as part of a training course. The hotel and conference centre used to be a technology school. The room was clean and more than adequate. The bed was comfortable, there was enough lighting and the high speed internet worked for a fee. Breakfast was not great - scrambled eggs, bacon, mushrooms and deep fried sausages along with... More

This is a good choice for a work trip. The rooms are spacious with all that you could need for a good stay. The dinner and breakfast at the restaurant were both of a good standard. The busy road out the front was not an issue. The room I had was very quiet and it was almost a surprise in... More

I spent a week at Hemisphere as part of a work training program. The hotel is situated in suburban Melbourne, and is of reasonable size. Check in process was problem-free. The room was of small to average size, and contained one bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed was quite uncomfortable. My hotel room had no signage about washing... More
