We stayed at the Essendon Grand a couple of years ago on business and were so impressed we booked the meeting room to hold a conference for our clients as well as enjoy some of the highlights of Melbourne. The main thing that first attracted us to this venue was the proximity of the airport, freeway and the public transport to the city.
The accommodation is very spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We stayed at the back of the property so can't comment on any traffic noise from Mt Alexander Road. The tram stop is very close and there are lots of eateries and boutique shops on the doorstep and the train station is a few tram stops away. There is a Coles supermarket across the car park if you wish to self cater.
Kevin and Eva really make you welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The food provided for the conference was freshly made and every delegate commented on how good it was. We could not fault the service and organisation and would recommend the Essendon Grand as a venue for a small conference or meeting place or as a base for exploring more than just Melbourne City.
The conference booking is arranged through the Punthill events management team and although we only dealt with them by phone and email everything ran like clockwork. Infact even better than other conferences where we have had face to face meetings.
