Do not hesitate to stay here. Fantastic location to the city either by tram, walking or vehicle. Reasonable rates and extremely clean. Only 15 minutes to Melbourne airport via freeway and located in a beautiful part of the city.

This motel offers a comfortable room at reasonable prices with excellent access to public transport and the main Melbourne bike trails. Easy walk to Melboune University. East facing rooms heat up early in summer and are exposed to road noise. Fortunately, traffic is very light at night and there was no problem sleeping. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Many...

Hotel is comfortable and clean. Mattresses and bedding great. Mini bar poor, not enough selection. Reception friendly. Bathroom bath / shower not safe, difficult to turn water on and off. Entrance could be more appealing.

Rooms were clean and spacious, with great beds. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a bit of traffic noise, but I am used to none. Gym and pool area great. Location is fantastic, so easy to catch a tram to the city and not too far to walk to restaurants and local shops.
