A fabulous spot and it could be an awesome place, but it's let down but little things. Not enough blankets, towels, broken blind, cupboard and the paint needs a touch up inside. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room in this 3 bedroom apartment for 5 of us.

The facilities and amenities are complete and high quality and Front office manager Raj is also doing a great job. His help much appreciated and... More

We had an uninterested and rude fellow to check us in at reception. He was busy on the computer and told us to wait. (I bet he was playing solitaire.) Other than that, the apartment was lovely but lacked items such as bottle opener, dish cloths and drinking glasses. The balcony door handle also fell off but the staff were... More

Docklands really has come a long way over the last few years & now there are great amenities right at your door. Tram stop is very close so it is easy to get around the city. The parking... More

Although we have family in Melbourne, and do occasionally stay in the city, we have not stayed in the Docklands before. There are plenty of reviews of these apartments so I will concentrate on the pluses and minuses from my point of view - your experience, of course, may vary. Plus: Nice comfortable, clean and spacious apartment. One bedroom had... More

We stayed in Room 901 at the Arkley - 3 bed 2 bathroom very clean, spacious apartment. The views are fantastic as all the 3 bed apartments are on the corners of the building. The location is great and you can catch the free tram into the city. A small supermarket is right at the entrance to the building and... More
