The Plough is a buzzing hotel and was very busy on the Friday night when we checked in around 7 pm. The checkin was quick and efficient despite being at a busy time. The rooms are upstairs above the main dining/bar area. We were concerned about excess noise but there was no noise that penetrated upstairs. The rooms are modernised... More

From the outside the Plough Hotel looks fairly ordinary, but step inside the restaurant/bar area and you'll find a modern fit-out with an up-market feel. My sister and I enjoyed a two course lunch as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. For $40 pp we had two courses plus a glass of wine. There were two choices of... More

We were delighted with staying at the Plough Hotel. There was free ample parking at the back and I was impressed with the size and modern decorating of our room. The room was recently renovated and the bathroom was modern and clean. We needed a place to stay as I had a birthday at the Anglers Tavern. We easily caught... More

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 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
