Stayed in Nolan Building Level 19 - stunning 180 degree views over river and city. Had 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom apartment with our two adult children, worked well. Handy to trams and convenience store nearby. Nice to be out of busy city yet close enough when needed. Very good service, as we arrived on early morning flight, we were... More

We had the oppotrunity to stay in Melbourne recently and as there was four of us (2 couples) we thought we would try the Docklands Private Collection of Apartments.

2 Adults & 2 Teens. Our first room was decorated in old mix match furniture with some cheap new iteams. Twin beds had old gold velvet bedheads and the main room had wicker furniture, some had been painted to make it look cleaner perhaps. The bed was old and hard and you could feel the springs in the bed. I... More

We had a 3 bed apartment in Nolan building on the 12th Floor. The apartment was amazing. Very spacious and everything you need in an apartment. The views from the balcony were amazing as well. We were a bit unsure about the location when we booked because we thought it might be a bit too far out of town but... More

Stayed here for a weekend with group of friends for a birthday in Melbourne. Apartment was unbelievable, the view from the 18th floor over the docklands to the Etihad Stadium and the big wheel was unbelievable. Would definitely return if ever back in Melbourne. Building was secure and clean.

We came over to Melbourne for the Lion King, great place to stay, great position, close to free trams and harbour town and the Wheel, what an adventure for our 8 year old grandson. Would come back and stay again. We had a two bedroom two bath roomed apartment.

We travelled from Perth with another couple to watch the footy and spend the weekend in Melbourne. We were absolutely blown away by the magnificent views and quality of accommodation. We were expecting something special based on the price and we certainly were not let down.
