Selected to stay at the Punthill Hotel at Williamstown. Turned out to be a superb hotel, due to its location. We decided to stay there as we had friends in Williamstown, and this was a perfect selection due close proximity to eateries, and of course the wharf areas. Rooms were very well looked after despite being around for 9 years... More

I originally chose to stay here so I was away from the noise of the F1. It was a great choice! It's right in the heart of Williamstown, surrounded by restaurants and shops and only a short walk or drive to Coles if you feel like cooking for yourself. It's a fairly small hotel with 2 floors of rooms, a... More

great location in Williamstown near shore, shops, restaurants and bars. Our apartment had views of Melbourne over the somewhat high balcony. The bedroom was big enough, good size lounge/dining/kitchen area and absolutely perfect for our needs. Good clean linen and nice bathroom, washing m/c and tumble drier soon sorted out our laundry requirements after 3 weeks on the road. Within... More

I have stayed here six nights in a nice and spacious single room apartments while on a business trip. The room was nice and clean. The small kitchenette was well equipped. As there are many restaurants around I did not use it. The bathroom had a very nice rain shower, it was very powerful I really enjoyed it. The position... More

I only got to stay one night in a one bedroom apartment with my adult daughter, but would have loved to have stayed longer. Great location can walk everywhere, right next door to the main shopping area. Very spacious, modern and clean apartment with everything you would want.

I have stayed twice at Punthill Williamstown for 2 and 5 nights. We were there as a couple. The rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen facilities let you cook up more than enough for a holiday trip. I stayed on Level 1 and Level 2 - each room had a spacious balcony overlooking the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my elderly mother and aunty in order to catch up with family in Melbourne. I was a great position being close enough for family to visit us or for us to travel by train into Melbourne without having to stay in the city and pay higher rates.

Well placed at the bottom of Ferguson Street, these apartments are hard to fault. Good sized room, spotlessly clean, and reasonably quiet, given the central location. The shower was probably the best hotel shower we've ever experienced. Staff were lovely, and only the lack of a safe in the room has prevented the award of five stars.

Stayed here overnight for work. Staff are extremely helpful. A shame the lift was broken down (no fault of the accommodation). Well layed out, spacious and modern rooms. The bed was super comfortable. Excellent in-room facilities and the inclusion of a gym is definitely beneficial. Close to shops and restaurants - great location. Would stay here again.
