The room was very comfortable,but a little noisy as we were on the main road. The location was ideal for our stay. The trams run right past the front door which makes getting around the city really easy.

The Staff's English was very poor. I had to ask the Receptionist 3 times to repeat herself, when I called, just to ensure I had dialled the right number. She couldnt understand us either. This was the same when I checked in. Our room was not cleaned to standard. Especially the bathroom. The breakfast only provided one type of eggs... More

Cheap and excellent value for money. Great location and clean and modern. Near all facilities and easy access to city and sporting arenas. Will recommend to others and visit again. The pool looks good, too bad it was winter.

This hotel was in the perfect place for us to visit our new granddaughter and the price was perfect. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and except for the shower not being hot enough I could not complain. Cant wait to go back.

Good reception staff. Well positioned .hotel. Good value for money. I first stayed at this property in 1977 and have returned to stay many times. During my first stay Kiwi won the Melbourne Cup in the wet. That helped me pay a few hotel bills.

Gym is basic with bike, treadmill and plate machine but at least they have one. I don't eat at the hotel due to the abundance of alternatives in the area. Nice and... More

Good basic hotel that gives you what it advertises, cheap , low frills accommodation. Ideal for those who treat a hotel as a storage location for baggage and a bed whilst exploring the city daily - cheap parking is a plus too!

The hotel was close to the hospital, very comfortable, and friendly. The rooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable, and had a shower as well as a bath. It was easy to get to from the airport. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Our expectations were not high when booking this hotel, mostly choose because we could park our tall car in open carpark. The renovation working with the retro lines is faultless, funky quality bedroom linen and furniture.
