The positives first ... The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The not so positives ... The room was facing west and the blinds were left open so it was like an oven when I walked in. I also received and email the day prior to check in asking me to take care of some of the check... More

We stayed here overnight on a Saturday night and attended a wedding as well at the same venue. We had a 2 bedroom (split on two levels) with a balcony on the 6th floor that had great views. The only complainant about the room was that there was only a phone upstairs which was annoying when we were quite happy... More

Stayed in a Twin bed room. The room has a beautiful view of the city. Staff were friendly. Parking costs $7 a day. Swimming pool is located at the sleep and go hotel. It is unheated so close to impossible to use with Melbourne weather. Our room had a full kitchenette, stove, microwave etc... Which is great. The bed was... More

My husband and I stayed for 11 nights and really felt comfortable with our stay. Although the only down side was a few times the servicing of the room was not always perfect. Some days fresh towel replacement was missing (even though they took the used towels) but calling reception rectified this. Also the kitchen area not always cleaned thoroughly.... More

Came here for business this time in the northern suburbs and find this gem! Seriously this beats most in the CBD and I've stayed in a few around town in Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane. I stayed in the Manhattan Studio Apartment for only $170, very top floor right on the end near the road. Great room, for myself and the... More

Clean and comfortable. The room was spacious and well set. Staff were polite but seemed quite disorganised. The highlight was definitely breakfast - wow! Made on the spot, fresh and continuously stocked up by the friendly staff. We also had some good evening meals in the restaurant.

Booked 2 x 2 bedroom Manhattan's. Asked for city views and only received 1 with city views. Car parking was a bit crazy, got locked in. This should have been pointed out at time of checkin. TV on one wall bracket was coming off the wall, worried it was going to fall off. Also ask for room to be made... More

Stayed here for a Saturday night and booked the executive suite as there was a good deal with it. Staff most helpful and polite. When I booked I was sent email asking if I wanted to confirm booking on line. I did this and was given some choices about the room. I chose the option to have a room distant... More
