Due to all the events being held in Melbourne the weekend we were there, the Melbourne Tourist Centre reserved this hotel for us (about 50 minutes from Melbourne). We stayed for 3 nights (Friday, Saturday & Sunday), and Sunday was by far the worst night. We arrived back at our hotel around 6:00pm to find our room had not been... More

Stay at this hotel a few times a year through work and it always gives me mixed feelings......some excellent points and very friendly staff, but also some things that always frustrate me - eating choices being just one. Perhaps I am a hard marker, but always seems to me to be trying too hard, to be something it isn't.....a business... More

The building is very nice, love it. The room I had was quite old and the bath room was not as nice as in other 4 star hotels. Having said that, the room size as well as the bath room size are OK. My room had a modern TV, two phones, a working desk, iron board, an old air-con, and... More

Stayed on business for three nights! The manager was always on hand to ensure guests needs were met including making sure I got to my meetings in time by offering the use of the hotel shuttle (generally available for distances of approx 5 kms) when taxis didn't arrive or were late. The staff in general could not have been more... More

I was here on business and found the place to be very comfortable and a lovely place to stay. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the bed was very comfortable. It is walking distance to the local shopping centre and there is a sushi restaurant next door.

I was on a business trip and only stayed for two nights but they were two great nights. The bed was comfortable and the room was in a very tidy and comfortable state. As the hotel is on an intersection there is some noise from the traffic but that is the only negative and nothing they can change. I was... More

I bring my elderly Italian father-in-law to Melbourne from Perth 2 - 3 times per year for 10 days at a time so he can spend time with his family here, and we always choose to stay at the Clarion on Canterbury. The décor is lush and beautiful and the food at Oliver's Restaurant is excellent. The staff from the... More

My stay at this hotel proved to be a comfortable one and I would recommend others to stay here to experience this first hand.

My wife and I were travelling to Melbourne for a wedding, and we booked this hotel because all the guests were staying there, and it was near by. We called and booked a "deluxe room". Given that it was $40 more per night than the "standard room", we thought it was actually going to be better than a standard room.... More

Unfortunately during your stay our hotel had a flood, therefore requiring the relocation of guests into other rooms available in the hotel to ensure a smooth stay for our guests.
