In this day and age, surely it's reasonable to expect to have internet connection in a hotel that presents itself as a more up-market suburban option in Australia's second-largest city? To me, internet connection is as basic a requirement as electricity and running water. But, apparently it's way too much to expect from Clarion on Canterbury. We booked in for... More

I recently stayed 2 nights at this hotel. My kids were desperate to have a holiday and stay in a hotel but being a single mum not being able to afford a holiday this was the next best thing! Our first night was fine, until myself, 7yo, 3yo and 5 month old were woken at 6am by an alarm clock... More

My apologies your entry key card was not working correctly, I will look into the locks on your hotel door to ensure it is working correctly for the future. Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I have spoken with our front desk staff regarding this and their responses. Unfortunately we were unaware the previous guest must have left... More

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

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