We chose this place in order to be close to a birthday party venue. Wish we'd chosen others that were a bit further away. Rooms are very tired and over-priced. However, receptionist did give us a good food recommendation for an early dinner that night before the party we were going to.

If you're alone and need a place to sleep, this place is fine. The staff is nice enough and the room is clean. It's not too far from the city(driving), but the walk will really tire your legs out quickly. The restaurant in the hotel is really plain and the food is ok if you're hungry. I only had breakfast....

We left it too late to book a hotel and not knowing there was a Cricket World Cup on 14th Feb-28th March. We were panicking when we noticed not many good hotels available on the 20th Feb and without checking reviews on the tripadvisor, we booked 2 family rooms for one night. My son and I arrived there before check... More

I made the mistake of staying for 2 nights here on business. I paid for internet access, but was unable to stay connected long enough to complete online travel bookings or download email attachments. The cold water pressure in the shower kept dropping off, going from warm to scalding. Then I visited their buffet breakfast, which was very unimpressive, so... More

I booked two nights accommodation whilst on business in Melbourne. On arrival I requested a room away from the Kings Way frontage as very noisy with 8 lanes of commuter traffic. I was given a room with damp on the wall, a broken chair, stain marks on the bed covers, damp in the bathroom and the coating peeling on the... More

Reception was unattended upon arrival - no bell to alert the staff, so had to call them to meet me. The man who came to greet me was pleasant enough. Free undercover car parking was a bonus. Was given keys to room 112, and was quite displeased at the stale, musty odour when I entered. Opened the large window to... More

Do not stay in the 'spa suite' if you were expecting to find anything like the pictures. As per the other reviews, that is not a picture of the room and instead you will get a dark, dingy tiny room with a bathtub stuffed in the corner. Also a very noisy hotel from noises from other rooms. Do not stay... More

Although it is in close vicinity to Melbourne city and reasonably clean and tidy service was extremely poor. When I arrived I found the customer service to be rude and unhelpful the general tone was condescending and again plain Rude. Not all staff were rude in fact there were some lovely staff, but unfortunately the experience I encountered left me... More
