Stayed on a week night in a balcony room. Bedroom, separate bathroom and lounge room. No tv in lounge room only in bedroom. Clean. Quiet. Friendly staff. Parking is available, limited though, glad our car wasn't too big! Lovely old Victorian hotel amongst other gorgeous residences. Perfect to walk to the MCG or walk to tram and pop into the... More

My husband booked this place because he could walk to the MCG. I'm still not talking to him and he's walking home. Dirty, Uncomfortable, Dilapidated. The best thing was leaving. 🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫

Yes, the location is perfect: in a beautiful avenue full of charming Victorian terraces and mansions and close Fitzroy Gardens and the MCG; easy and pleasant 15 minute walk to the CBD. But the condition and operation of this hotel was substandard in almost every way. After I booked online I phoned the hotel to request an email confirmation, as... More

We booked 2 rooms, got confirmation by email and were then contacted by phone to say that one of the rooms was not available, claiming that I had made in error in the booking date (which I could prove was not the case), and that I could get another $30 more expensive room instead. I subsequently cancelled and was reimbursed.... More

Very disappointing. One trundle bed mattress was so thin that you could feel every slat. Sleeping on the double bed was like sleeping on a trampoline. Kitchen crockery and cutlery not stocked for the 6 persons the apartment supposedly sleeps, though staff happily provided more on request. Apartment door didn't lock properly. When we asked about this, we were told... More

We have an annual boys footy trip from Queensland to Melbourne once a year. It was great for what we needed: a place to sleep and a base close to the footy. The place has a classic feel to it. It's no Hilton, but u get what u pay for. Worked out to be $40 each bloke per night. A... More

If you're vision impaired and have a guide dog don't expect to be able to stay at this 'hotel'. Flat policy of 'no pets' and refused to listen to explanation that a Guide Dog is not a pet! So frustrating that these archaic attitudes still exist in the hospitality sector.

Having stayed at this hotel on several occasions previously, we were appalled by the decrepit state we found our room - dirty doors with peeling paint, chipped plasterwork, a broken toilet cistern - it's been a looooooong time since anything has been done to maintain or repair these rooms. Most disappointing was the tepid reception by staff. It was just... More
