Last time I stayed at this property was November 2015 but we seem to always drift back as location suits us to a tee. I believe now ground floor it is DOG FRIENDLY which is a worry but anywhere I see is catering for dogs in rooms isn't my idea of a good healthy atmosphere BUT walking into an apartment,... More

These serviced apartments are just the thing for people with dogs. I was amazed to find such a place. It is close to the city, about a 30 minute walk, through the wonderful Fitzroy Gardens. Close to trams, a convenience store, a fast food outlet and a few minutes walk from the Vietnamese culinary feasts of Victoria Street. There are... More

The staff on the desk and the manager were extremely helpful, solving our problem and saving our trip. The room was clean, comfortable and suited our purpose being pet friendly. Location close to the CBD, transport on hand making it easy to get anywhere. Secure, locked parking at no cost with listed entry/exits. Great service, fantastic staff and comfortable room!

I like the Birches Services Apartments because it is in a great location, close to trams, parks, the G and the tennis centre. You can even walk to town if you feel energetic. The rooms are a good size and the lounge is separate from the bedroom. This is a problem if you like to watch TV in bed. The... More

Everything about our stay was just right. Friendly service, comfortable setting, easy access to transport and local services. Would stay again. And when we left a handmade quilt behind birches were very helpful in returning it at once by mail.

We stay here regularly (often weekly) on our trips to Melbourne. The staff are friendly and efficient, the apartments are always clean, comfortable and well-equipped, and the location is brilliant. The city is a short tram ride in one direction, while Richmond cafes and shops are a quick walk the other way. Our elderly dog is made welcome, and appreciates... More

Great location - close to the city, with an easy walk to tram lines. Great storage in the rooms. Off street parking. BBQ facilities. Very comfortable beds! I travel down to Melbourne every four weeks or so and always stay here.
