Wonderful 5 day stay with our Probus Club. Friendly, caring staff who greeted us with a smile and a chat each meal time. Plenty of space in room and quality meals. Trams are close by and so is 711 where you can get your myki card. I will certainly return.

We came as a group of 44 Probus members for 4 nights. The hotel has been excellent the staff are extremely helpful. The rooms are changed daily and are very clean, it is also close to train and tram stops would definitely come here again and their dinners each night were very good

This is the second time we have stayed at the Creat on Barkly. We stay here as it is convenient for the Melbourne Ironman. The staff are always friendly. The other problem we had is our room had ants in it and so did our friends at the other end of the floor. I also think in this day in... More

If you are looking for a basic, clean, cheap hotel in a good location, this is a good choice. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I arrived early and they got my room ready A couple if hours ahead and let me check in at no extra charge. The location is a short walk from the St Kilda road... More

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
