We spent 3 nights at this "out of town" motel. The rooms are fine but a railway line runs just behind and the trains start around 5 am tooting as they pass the hotel. Also there was a local neighbourhood party which prevented us from sleeping. The soap & shampoo were not replaced during our stay so we were a... More

This is a beautiful place to stay. The room is clean and nice. I saw some reviews saying the heater didn't work. Both the heater in room and bathroom were working fine in my case. Staff are very nice and friendly too. I like this red brick wall building.

There are plenty of shops nearby (walking distance probably 10-15minutes). If you were driving to the hotel, you will need to make a U turn if you are on the opposite direction (the hotel can be seen easily with alittle effort). The room is clean and comfortable. Wifi is available for free which is great. I was staying on the... More

Perfect to for us to stay half way between the city and the peninsula. This property is always spotlessly clean. Good parking. Prefer ground floor no stairs for me. No traffic noise even though on Nepean Highway.

OK, its not that posh but its a gem of a property. Good size rooms with FREE WiFi, reasonably priced mini bars and in my room a HUGE TV! Even though my room was facing the street the double glazing worked a treat and I had a great night sleep. The Bar and Restaurant on site is also of high... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom unit over Easter and the accommodation was clean, comfortable, spacious and in an excellent location walking distance to shops and transport. The only thing that let us down was no in-room laundry facilities (difficult to use communal facilities when you have a baby and toddler) and no bath or laundry sink to bathe small... More

Recently refurbished to a high standard. Free wi fi, good restaurant, helpful staff, coin operated laundry room and bags of hot water. Close to metro station for easy access to Melbourne CBD and Brighton and Sandringham by car. Good value for money hotel out of town.

We arrived early to a very warm welcome and an upgrade to a family room on the upper level. We had heavy cases and there was no lift but the room was spacious and the beds comfortable. Oddly though, there was limited storage with virtually no drawers - totally unsuitable for a family staying for more than a night or... More

We stayed for 5 nights- wife and 2 staff- while on business in Melbourne. For Melbourne city it is a little far out, but OK. Staff very helpful in helping to change from double room to apartment when the staff arrived, and also in taking delivery of some printing for us. Thanks for that. The rooms were comfortable, but there... More

Tiny little room we had, although I think there were better rooms than we had. Only stayed one night for a party that I attended. You wouldn't want to stay in this room a minute longer than you had too

Dear Dave, Thank you for your time reviewing us on Tripadvisor recently. We are sorry to find out your thoughts on our Standard Queen rooms. The size of our standard Queen room is about 24 meter square which is a better size than many well-known 4 star hotels in Melbourne. There is definitely value for money with those with free... More
