Stayed here for one night. It’s right next to Lygon St and in a very nice area, so feels save walking around at night and there are lots of restaurants to choose from. Short distance from Carlton gardens and the Fizory gardens which are both nice in the morning. Room was tidy and clean, but you can hear doors slamming... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, and everything was just fine until the time we checked out. It wasn’t a big deal, but we were quite surprised about it. The room was small, especially the bathroom..it’s tiny. We don’t mind at all because it was nice. We got the room with pool view and we liked it. Like... More

We have stayed here a few times now, quite a good little spot. Always booked directly, good price and service. Ask for the breakfast and parking included deal- good value. Also we had a "spa room" and they were MUCH better then the ones near the pool. Non smokers or asthmatics should avoid rooms near the pool as that is... More

We always stay at this hotel when we come to Melbourne. It is very clean, staff excellent and the location for us is great. The rooms are very well set out and appointed. The pool looks very resort like, but it was too cold to swim during our stay. We have been coming here since 2000 and would definitely recommend... More

We have stayed here before and have valued the position, the rooms and the price. This visit we booked 4 rooms to accommodate 12 friends. However, the very large, unpleasant, unhelpful man behind the desk left a VERY sour taste in our mouths. He was not only rude to us, the guests, but reluctant to accommodate us when attempting to...

My room was on the ground floor (north-east corner) and it was quite noisy on the Saturday night; however one of the reasons I choose to stay at the Travel Inn is its proximity to Lygon Street and I suspect that many others do the same!! maybe the Hotel could place some signs re noise and courtesy for others?

This hotel is very close to Lygon Street, in the Italian district. It is reasonably priced, but rooms are quite small, but clean. Our renovated bathroom was brilliant, but oh so tiny! We stayed 3 nights, but after a horrible buffet breakfast on the first morning we ate in cafés around the corner at a much cheaper price with freshly... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over the anzac weekend. We have previously stayed here and have been extremely happy. This time we were put in a room just inside near the pool. It was very noisy. People sat outside smoking until about 2am and this was right outside our window. Also the door through to inside was noisy with... More
