If you like florescent room lighting and filthy carpeting, this is the hotel for you. Walking on the carpet in socks left black residue on the socks. The internet is without doubt the worst I have experienced anywhere in the world. It is expensive and is frequently either exceedingly slow or down altogether. Worse, for a couple who travel with...

Walked in and the two male receptionists didn't even really acknowledge our arrival or even look at us much, not much eye contact at all. Told them our name and one of them proceeded to process our reservation but did not know which one until one of them handed us a form to complete. Not a smile to be seen.... More

Our party stayed here for 3 nights at the end of an Australian tour. The hotel itself is very nice, in a handy location for nearby restaurants and 15 minutes' walk from the famous Victoria Street Market. The stop for the City Shuttle bus is just around the corner on Lygon Street. We found the staff to be very friendly... More

Recently booked two rooms when we came to Melbourne for a family wedding. Very handy location for Lygon Street and a leisurely 20 minute walk to the the city. Free under cover parking was a bonus. Rooms were smallish but clean and comfortable. We were in ground floor rooms facing the pool which were nice and quiet as the weather... More

Went down for a weekend and hadn't stayed in this part of town before as I thought it'd be too far out of the way. It was an ideal location for Lygon street food, not far from the Princess Theatre, parks and Museums and if you felt like a good walk it was only 20 minutes into the city. The... More

Booked a room for three nights over Grand Final weekend. We drove over from Perth for the big game. This hotel is in an excellent location in Carlton and a three second walk to the famous Lygon Street restaurants. Quick and efficient check in at 4 in the morning. Undercroft parking was excellent and included in room rate. The room... More

This Hotel has, in my opinion, a terrific location. Drummond St is one of the most beautiful in Melbourne, with old houses and lush front gardens in a relatively quiet "backyard" of Lygon. All around there are great Restaurants, and, at walking distance, the Museum of Melbourne and the University Campus, with its historical sandstone buildings. The Hotel is relatively... More

I spent one night at this hotel last week and found it quite satisfactory. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful and the room was clean. The hotel looked great on the way to the room and I loved how it is draped around the courtyard pool. I was disappointed when I saw the room, because it was very, very... More
