Have stayed here now twice for business purposes and have been very pleased with my stay both times. Staff are very friendly and go out of their way to assist - have been upgraded both visits and appreciated the large spa bath and ability to store my bike. Given lack of restaurants in near vicinity (Sydney Road only 10mins walk... More

The location is good, but really Parkville rather than Carlton. Great access to trams or a pleasant walk down Royal Parade. The decor is bright and fresh, the rooms are generous, the beds are very comfortable, and the breakfast room is a real plus. Also, at $10 a day, parking is very reasonable. It's a pity that the beautiful pool... More

Given the hotel isn't near restaurants it's a pity the food both in the hotel and room service (which is outsourced) was so poor. Also, take your ear plugs because the walls are paper thin and forget doing any work because the internet is non existent. The staff are friendly though and did their best to fix things.

Great location, 15min. tram ride from the City. 3min walking distance from hotel to the nearest tram stop. The hotel located near to Brunswick, which is a funky suburb to venture. And the best Pizza in the world is only 25min. walk from the hotel! The hotel was newly renovated, spaces, you can see the retro outer design of the... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times due to its competitive price when elsewhere is ridiculous!! Easy to get to off freeway, trams right outside. Got a great deal through Wotif with free parking and breakfast. Room was great, always know what to expect and not disappointed. Breakfast was pretty basic though, quite flavour less. Wouldn't pay for it but... More

Revamped 60's motel. Rooms clean and well serviced. Not great value, but ok. Had to take them up on their price guarantee, which still isn't as discribed - it's 10% of their price. Not what you find cheaper. Noisy Maintenance carried out early mornings

The hotel is in a good location with public transport outside. Friendly staff, easy check in and check out. Good size rooms and quiet for a good nights sleep, especially before having to sit in a full day workshop the following day.

A good hotel away from crowds and noise, and only 10 minutes by tram to the city centre. Pool and gym too. No food shops or restaurants nearby though. Guests in the room next to mine were noisy though, and that was irritating, but not the fault of the hotel. I tried to change rooms but the hotel was fully... More

A nice clean comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Was well positioned for my time spent travelling to Showgrounds and Albert Park...trams right out front and a nice range of restaurants within 10mins walk. I am not able to comment on hotels services as I didn't require anything apart from a clean room and comfortable bed. Will return.

I suppose my review will be a little biased, as I was lucky enough to score an exceptionally good deal - AUD$129 for accommodation, free parking (normally $10 overnight), free WiFi (only 100MB though), and breakfast (for 2) in the morning. That's pretty darn amazing for a hotel fairly close to the city, public transport, and a university. So to... More
