We recently had a 5-day stay in Melbourne. We didn't know Melbourne at all, really, but this was an excellent place to stay. Our apartment was 14 floors up with fantastic views of the city, glimpses of the Yarra River and the casino precinct. We booked on-line - no hiccups with that process. We took the SkyBus from Tullamarine which... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment they are modern and the building has 3 lifts so no waiting. Good walking location to the city and restaurants. 1 thing I did find annoying was the kitchen was equipped with all the relevant cookware and cutlery but no dish washing detergent, dish washer tablets or tea towels.

This Beautiful 4 bedroom apartment in Southbank was great for our recent business trip. Everyone agreed to stay together to save a bit of money. We had lots of room to ourselves and the unit is huge. We had a great time and would stay here again.

We stayed for 5 nights, the apartment is well furnished and very comfortable. The Supermarket downstairs is well stocked and very handy. The concierge staff are friendly and helpful. The location is great and the views spectacular. Overall no complaints. Would definitely stay again.

Wow!!!! A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a thousand pictures can't do justice to the view of Melbourne from this Freshwater Gem........ It is a visual delight from the hushed interior..... But when you open the sliding door to the balcony, it turns into an audio-visual delight..... The distinctive hum of a vibrant city and the cheerful... More

We rented the 3 bedroom suite on the sixth floor, with a great view on the Yarra River and the CBD. Very well maintained apartment, clean, high quality and stylish furniture. Very quiet too... More

Stayed 5 nights 15 - 20/01/2015. Self contained 2 bedroom apartment on the 26th floor - 2 adults/2 children aged 10 & 12. The location is awesome, we walked pretty much everywhere and where we needed to tram it, you can walk to stops within the free city centre. The apartment itself was great, self contained with washer/dryer (handy with... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment in the centurion building. We loved it! Massive lounge dining room with great views over the river/city. Kitchen is really well stocked for self catering. No noise or any issues. Staff were really friendly and helpful. There are plenty of restaurants nearby with South Wharf and the Casino comples. Two trams outside the front... More
