From the moment I called to book I was happy, the lady making my booking was not only lovey and friendly but also gave me a great deal on a room. The rates are so reasonable compared to other places in melbourne. The rooms were clean, our room was spacious ( more spacious than some other I think.) The place... More

Stayed here for only a one night stop over, we arrived quite late and left reasonably early. The rooms have been recently painted/renovated and are clean but still lack a nice finish. Carpets are stained and scorched from where people have dropped irons and the spot light in our bathroom was hanging down. The walls are very thin to the... More

Crest on Barkly, although just your average accommodation by standards the friendly and helpful owners/operators more than make up for the niceties (and price tag) that other upmarket hotels have to offer. The restaurant within the hotel which is open to the public offers an intimate or alfresco dining experience and you simply must try the veal marsala off the... More

The room had recently been refurbished but still smelt strongly of paint. Woke up in the morning with a headache as there was no way of airing the room. The bed was ok and the amenities were all there. Due to the smell and headache we decided not to stay for breakfast so cannot comment on this. We were looking... More

The hotel itself is pretty old and it shows in the rooms. They're quite spacious, but need an update. My room definitely needed the carpet replaced and it looked like the bathroom door had been touched up (with paint), but the colour wasn't quite the same....4 to 5 "touch ups" that didn't quite match. The hallways are quite narrow and... More

- Window cannot be opened, so when the room smells bad, it stays. It smelled like something rotted, and the air felt stuffy. The only thing good about the room itself was the two queen sized beds. The room needs refreshment, sheets were old. - The lift was soooooo old, noisy and loud, and made people feel unsafe. - The... More
