We recently visited Melbourne for the Flower Show and stayed at Apartments on Lygon. The rooms are rather tired and although an attempt has been made to refurbish them, it has been a quick fix and does not really hide the short comings of the place. For example the bath was badly scratched, chipped and rusty. There was no towel... More

Very disappointing. Rooms are old and need maintenance. Simple things were missing like a spare toilet roll and minimal tea and coffee supplies. The room was very overpriced, although we were there the weekend of the Grand Prix which could explain escalated price. Thankfully, bedding was clean and comfortable.

As soon as we parked the car on arrival my heart sank at the sight of the run down dump I had booked for our long weekend, I could only hope it was just the outside that was tired and dirty. I collected the keys from management whom clearly couldn't give a damn if I was there or not and... More

With a Carlton wedding church and reception venue booked, we looked for nearby accommodation. Was a little sceptical after reading some reviews of these apartments. We booked three doubles, and other guests of the wedding also booked here. We found this a perfect location for our needs, the apartments very spacious, well equipped, clean, and staff very obliging. Had no... More

We stayed here whilst attending a concert last night. We booked accommodation at the last minute and this was all that was available within a reasonable distance from where we wanted to be. I was initially disappointed in the greeting i got at reception. Rather unwelcoming and i was ignored twice before being bluntly answered. I guess the price was... More

Everything was good but the rooms did smell funny. When we went to bed the pillow was a disgusting old hard lumpy pillow thank god i brought my... More

The location is great, 10 Mins to the city. I think that it's overpriced for how basic it is. However, the staff /owners are lovely. They did our washing for us when I told them that our washing machine is broken. The batteries were changed in the remote without us informing them that they were dead which shows attention to...

I stayed at this apartment complex last week and as soon as we arrived, there was a musty smell throughout the apartment. Opened up the windows to let the air in to enjoy the rattle and banging of the trams. After the first night, stared scratching a bit but put it don to the humidity & heat. The second &... More

First impression of the apartment was the front door which was dirty and sticky and then we opened the door. We were greeted by a disgusting odour, dirty carpet which appeared had not been steam cleaned for a few years, couch had smell and was dirty, windows had sticky finger marks, blinds dirty and bathroom had mould in grout and...
