There are great restaurants downstairs along the promenade and an IGA supermarket. Harbour town is at the back door with the Melbourne star and the free circle tram is all only one street away.

Delighted you enjoyed your stay MonanMatt and the views over the water. TIP: If any-one is wanting to have water/harbour views then make sure you book a water view apartment as like any hotel, not all our apartments have water views, just the ones that face the harbour. More
