We stayed at the Swanston Hotel over the Christmas/New Year break, we couldn't have asked for better.
The location is great, you step out the onto the street straight to a tram stop, the malls are just around the corner, there are plenty of restaurants up and down the street. It is really great.
We had the most efficient and friendly check in and check out than we have ever had during our many domestic and overseas trips.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they were great.
I booked breakfast at the time of booking our accommodation, which was in the restaurant, after looking at the menu we decided that we would rather go for the buffet breakfast, and it was definately excellent value for money. The only down side was that they weren't very good at tracking whom had ordered eggs and then delivering them to the correct table, but to be honest, it was no big deal, as there was such a good choice for a great start to the day.
The room was clean, as was the bathroom, and a reasonable size. A pretty standard size really.
When we visit Melbourne again, we will definately stay at the Swanston again, it is such a great place to stay and for Aussie prices, we thought it was real value for money.
