I stayed here for 2 nights as my normal motel in the area was booked up. I choose the "executive spa suite" which was a third more in price than my normal motel room. I chose this as some of the reviews said the standard rooms were noisy as they are on the outside of the hotel and this hotel... More

We recently stayed here for a few nights while works happening at home. We had a 2 bedroom apt which was perfect. It was so clean and comfortable. Room service was really good.

Thank you for the feedback. I am so glad the children enjoyed the swimming pool - they are certainly keen in the midst of Melbourne winter. We will ensure the rattle in the heater is fixed so when you return to us it won't be a problem again. I trust all the repairs at home are now completed. Good luck. More

We held a conference here last week and I cannot fault the experience. The staff were extremely accommodating to our ever changing plans, even on the day! The facilities are excellent and they include all AV in their prices. This is rare to find in the event industry. I would highly recommend this hotel for events (I didn't stay there... More

Tried booking a room at the going online rate by phone.Abruptly told the rate wasn't right(I triple checked)then rudely told to book online.Surely phone booking matching online rates saves on commissions?Didn't stay.Terrible phone service

Unfortunately with all of the offers available on the internet the Clarion on Canterbury Hotel is unable to match the prices offered. Our staff are advised if guests wish to book for a lesser price than the best inhouse price offered, to redirect guests to the website they found this rate from to book.

What a difficult entry into this motel on extremely, busy, noisy roads. Turning into a very narrow, obscure driveway, which is located in a left hand turning lane of a crazy intersection. Each time nearly got the car behind me up my tail. The rooms are basic & dated, though roomy. Make sure to get one away from front traffic... More

I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your meal in Oliver's Restaurant. My apologies for any inconveniences you had with the room entry keycards - this system has now been updated. In addition, sadly we have no control over the driveway entry points to the hotel but we are happy to assist wherever we can. More

We stayed for one night in March in a standard suite. The room was clean and well furnished. The room size was pretty good for a standard with a nice big shower.

A real find. Spotlessly clean. The motel is in exception condition and well maintained. Rooms are comfortable, in excellent condition and very quiet. The large balcony out the back is a top spot to soak up the afternoon sun and enjoy a drink. Restaurant meal was perfect.
