Really nice reasonably priced city accommodation a tram ride away from the main town, in a lovely area, South Yarra, free wifi and breakfast, adequate bathroom facilities, lovely lounge area, free hot chocolate as well as coffee and tea. It was lovely and quiet, until last night when I really needed some sleep, but this is due to inconsiderate people,... More

We stayed at hotel Claremont from 1 until 4 January. The place is clean, offers a good complimentary breakfast and the staff are friendly. Don't expect much of the free Wifi. It takes forever to get online and once you are online, surfing is very slow and the connection is lost frequently (even in the dining room on the ground... More

The staff at this place were lovely-helpful and friendly. Safe luggage storage, easy tram access to the city and short walk down Chapel street for cafes and shopping. Very clean and interesting building/rooms. Complimentry wifi and breaky downstairs or across the road at Drugstore Espresso. Overall a very pleasant stay. Recommend to all visitors-families, groups and singles!

The place is ok, small simple rooms with a shared bathroom. It's generally kept pretty clean. My only issues were you get limited free wifi and it's painfully slow! Even downstairs next to the router. There also a lot of loud slamming doors, sounds of moving furniture and hoovering. No peace and quiet..

We had no high expectations, seen the price we paid for. The room was small, bit creepy (haha) but clean. Got a fan, telly and free wifi (though the connection might experience glitches). There's a brochure in the room showing you the available services, facilities and the closest supermarkets and restaurants. There are several small bathrooms on each floor, hence... More

I came here with a group of about 20 people. Our first impression was not the most pleasant welcome, a bunch of excited teenagers being yelled at and then having to sit through a 30 minute 'safety talk'. However, the information provided was very thorough and it was obvious that the Claremont has had a lot of experience accommodating groups.... More

Great hotel, nice breakfast - best we've had yet in Australia! Staff were all lovely and helpful! Couple of ants seen in bathrooms and dining area which was a bit off putting! Great location in Toorak. Only down point was that there was only a microwave for guests, no oven or stove.

Award-winning hotel - for the loudest creaking floorboards and door EVER. Did not sleep due to constant traffic through the internal door up and down the hallway outside the room. Position excellent, and building lovely - shame... Staff are really good too.
