We stayed at Room 20, no 30 Murphy St. Definitely not the half price bargain we were led to believe. Very old and tired inside and we all ended up with runny noses and the sneezes from the amount of dust in the place. Would not stay again, and would not recommend to anyone. We weren't advised that we had... More

I'm not surprised to hear that the laundry at Darling Towers caught fire today (August 26 2012) and smoke spread through the building, causing evacuation. I stayed there 2 nights in August 2011 and hardly slept a wink because I felt at risk. Filthy microwave, dangerously tangled electric leads, mould in the bathroom and between the two layers of all...

We stayed at the 2 bedroom Directors on Murphy. Great size apartment, reasonably modern, ticks all the boxes but there were some problems. On arrival the apartment was FREEZING it was colder inside than outside. The heater was tricky to turn on and the bedrooms needed small fan heaters on as well overnight. The apartment itself (cupboards, furnishings that kind... More

We had cause to book a family suite for two nights everything in the apartment was not 'user friendly' no instructions on how to use any of the 'appliances' although the maintenance person was most personable it does get a little over the top when he is back 4 times in an afternoon. I would say the overall maintenance of... More

Remembering the old addage, you get what you pay for, overall this accommodation is not bad. Our family of 4 stayed in apartment 13 of 30 Murphy Street. The desk staff were very friendly and helpful. First impressions of the rooms were a modern light and airy. However, scrape below the surface and the building is very old and tired.... More

32 Murphy Street When we arrived we had a problem with the parking spot being too small for our car, this was fixed promptly with a phone call to reception and a new spot allocated. The off street and secure parking after hours is great peace of mind. After the climb upto the third storey (no lift), we arrived to... More

We booked a 2 Bedroom Apartment on 22 Darling Street at AUD125 via their website, and was upgraded to a 2 Bedroom Apartment on 30 Murphy Street worth AUD165. The apartment was more than perfect considering our initial rate. The apartment was well kept, very clean, and with simple yet modern furnishings. However, we had to check-in at 32 Darling... More

Travelled from Darwin to Melbourne and stayed in 2 bdrm apartment. Apartment was really nice and had excellent facilities, particularly for making evening meals for family after long day out and about. Coming from Darwin we found Melbourne freezing so were extremely happy to find the apartment had good heating. The location was perfect, quite but close to all transport... More

Went to Melbourne for a shopping trip with friends. Hotel is centrally located but quiet and staff were responsive. We spent the first night in an incredibly, smoke affected room in hopes it would dissipate but it was toostrong. Staff were happy to move us to another apartment. Even though there were signs through out both apartments, we were not... More
