I needed to stay overnight in Parkville for business, and found the Parade Inn to be great value. The room was plain, but clean and comfortable. The staff at reception and the breakfast room were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at Parade Inn in April and on arrival the receptionist was very helpful. We had a very comfortable stay, decent car space directly outside our room and close proximity to pubs/eating places. Unfortunately, one cannot rely on the weather as it was raining very heavily. In the morning we went to the bistro and the staff were more... More

Although the rooms were dated, they were spotless and safe. The staff were extremely obliging and I would have no hesitation in staying there again. The hotel was very convenient as we had a hospital appointment and the location made it convenient for my husband to travel whilst I was hospitalised.

Positives: after booking a room advertised as having free wifi but being given a room without it, the friendly receptionist moved me to a different room. Also, management called to let me know I'd left my key in the door and I was allowed to use the carpark for an additional half hour while I was at an appointment. That's... More

I stayed here 2 nights and given the price (cheaper) in comparison to other motels I was pleasantly surprised with the room as it was nicer than I had expected. I was looking for somewhere near the State Netball & Hockey Centre and this was as convenient as I could imagine. I requested Internet access and was put in a... More

I was very disappointed with our stay here. I had stayed when it was the Ramada Inn and found it to be comfortable and good value. This time round, it had changed hands and looked as though very little maintenance had been done since. The decor was shabby, there was a lack of power points and the ones that were... More

We stayed in December 2013. It was clean, comfortable and the staff were friendly. The price includes a good breakfast. If you cycle, jog or enjoy walking the surrounding large parks, bike tracks and early 19th c. architecture are a feast for the eyes. We asked to borrow a microwave so they upgraded us to a bigger room with a... More
