I arrived at the Plough Hotel in the evening. I was greeted by Rula who was very helpful at booking me in and helping me out when i accidentally, locked my keys in the room. You will find that you will have to pay a nights bond to have a room here and this is a standard procedure. Just a... More

A no show of our air conditioner repairmen prompted us to book a room here for the night at the last minute on a horrid 43 degree Melbourne day. Accommodation is above basic but nicely laid out and everything new. Exceptionally comfy bed and free wifi are always nice bonuses. The website does say they have Foxtel but I was... More

We choose to stay at The Plough Hotel as it was slightly cheaper than others in the area, offered free WIFI and looked to be nicer than the other options. We were not disappointed. Right from the get go, the staff were fantastic and very helpful. The room on first appearance felt a little on the small side but in... More

We stayed here last weekend as we had a function in the area. It was fantastic value for money!! We booked the standard room as only needed a place to sleep, and it was spacious, clean and while the shower didn't look like much - it was AMAZING. Very comfortable bed and very quiet, had a fantastic night's sleep. The... More

The Plough has gone through many reincarnations. And his one seems to be right on track. The new renovations make the old Plough shine. It has been very tastefully redecorated. A mixture of restaurant quality eating and gourmet pizzas Bring your appetite as the servings are large. The beer battered flathead and chips was to die for. Crisp and light... More

We stayed here and with a late check-in, we were told to call a mobile number, then to call back numerous times. When we finally arrived, the staff member was kissing someone, which was very unprofessional at work. We were given attitude and told how to get to the room. The room was standard, but very overpriced.

Had read about The Plough having a major renovation, so when visiting Melbourne returned after a 20 year absence. Wow, what a difference! The dark old interior has been opened up and is well lit. The service by staff was exemplary, was as if every need was anticipated. The food was classics cooked perfectly, but not over priced as some... More

We booked this hotel because it was a good price and close to our son's apartment and the previous reviews were quite favourable. When we first saw the hotel admittedly we were a bit apprehensive. The downstairs bar and bistro is not open so windows blackened and obviously empty. We received a text message from the accommodation staff with the... More

I checked this hotel out in March when we knew we'd be arriving from the UK at the same time as our new grandchild, thought then it would 'do'. We arrived to find the upstairs had been completely refurbished and the downstairs bar and bistro should be finished by January. It was room only but when downstairs is done they... More

Who ever said a photograph doesn't lie? The website Pic's looked great. Listed as a boutique hotel I would be more inclined to call it novel. The Bistro was not operational at the time of my stay so essentially it was a bed, shower and a place to change kind of stop. My room was quiet however the whole neighbourhood... More
