Our stay (after having a sterling experience with Vibe in Sydney) was laughably bad. After specifically requesting months in advance (we were tipped off by a local) a room overlooking the pool, we arrive to be told "oh there aren't any vacant, sorry". The room we are given though has a fault in the curtains which causes them not to... More

Overall pleasant stay with a good size room and very helpful staff. There was a $10 charge for car parking which I thought was reasonable. Close to Sydney Road (about a 15-20 minute walk) which have many cafes/restaurants as well as Barkly Square with a few shops, bakery, café, K-Mart and supermarket.

Good value hotel located in Carlton. Rooms and beds comfortable and an easy tram ride into the centre of the city. Great reception staff- very helpful. Loved the pool area and the gym. Didn't have any food but the prices seemed very reasonable for a hotel

Stayed here for the weekend in November. Rooms were small but I guess we weren't gonna be there most of the time so it was ok. Staff were friendly and helpful. Tram station just near the hotel. Overall a good stay.

The room was clean and tidy and good value for money. Location was good. Lovely area to go for a walk in the evening and yet still close enough to restaurants and city. No issues with the service or staff. The buffet breakfast could do with some tweaking. Restaurant clean and tidy but selection not to my expectations.

This was our second time stay, we would come back as we like it here and if those previously mentioned glitches were rectified it would become my first preference not second or third. Staff are great.

Very average hotel experience, I would not stay there again as I travel with business and need to work and sleep in my hotel room and neither of these were possible. The room service food is outsourced and delivered, bit like a pizza delivery, came in a plastic container, had the wrong wine and the food was not very good.... More
