Plenty of car parking. Very light and comfortable room. Had breakfast downstairs at the restaurant. It is advertised as a buffet breakfast, but had to order my breakfast. The continental stuff was all there ready to go. It was hot though when it was delivered. Handy to all the restaurants in Lygon Street. All within walking distance. Handy to the... More

Standard hotel room. Nice beds. Tea and coffee making facilities available. Good cold bar fridge. Car parking was a bit tight. They tend to double park cars in front of others so if that happens to you they need to shift the cars, which they will.

Booked this hotel based on pricing and location for a one night stay over the weekend. The room itself (210) was right on the corner of the building and the bathroom faced on to Lygon St. The room itself was spacious and the bed was comfortable. While loud during the day and early part of the night, generally speaking road... More

This hotel whilst it is getting a little old, it was well priced and well located for our trip. We experienced excellent check in service and nothing was a problem. Centrally located to melbourne CBD for walking even with a toddler in a pram and just across the road from the start of the restaurants in lygon street.

Nice sized and clean rooms at the city end of Lygon Street. Excellent value. All rooms appear have large windows at the front and back allowing plenty of natural light. Bathrooms are large and well maintained although they are dated. Small unstocked fridges are located in the bathroom. Tea and coffee and hot water kettle in each room. Plenty of... More

Staff were exceptional and always friendly, service was first rate. Importantly, it was within a few minutes walk central Melbourne, the conference venue and Lygons famed cafes and restaurants,...

I've stayed at this hotel many times, very clean, nicely appointed rooms and well priced for the location. The location is fantastic right on Lygon Street and a short 10 minute walk in to the heart of Melbourne. Parking is a breeze on site (sometimes in busy times you might find it is a bit hard to find a spot... More

Dear Steve P, Thank you so much for your insightful review. As a regular corporate guest I am pleased you get the benefit of the onsite car parking. Many people stay and park here for exactly the reasons you mention - doing hook turn and finding parking in the CBD is often really tricky, so leaving the car a the... More

Good location close to the Lygon Street restaurants. Nice, big and clean room with a comfortable bed. However the bathroom was a let down and very dated with a poor shower, though it was clean. No tea/coffee making facilities.

During our last visit to Melbourne we stayed 2 nights. We found the rooms to be quite stylish in decor and very spacious. Our room offered tea and coffee making facilities and a generous size bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and the staff very friendly with information and any assistance we required. The hotel is located close to restaurants... More

Good clean, well located hotel. Friendly helpful staff. Great breakfast in the restaurant. I hate hotels that charge for parking but is usual practice in the city. Annoying and a rip off. King room spa bath was a puddle. Would not pay extra for it. Bed was really comfy and great pillows.
