“Great 3 Night Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This was our 3rd year staying at this hotel for 3 nights. We have been going to the Boxing Day cricket test (day 3) each year. We have found the hotel to be good value, with big rooms and it is conveniently located. We have walked from the MCG twice (although a long walk!). Easy walk to Prahan and a bit further to St Kilda. Trams are very close as well. Car parking is crucial coming from Canberra by car and costs $10.00 a night which we thought was very fair. This year we had a problem with our TV and it was fixed very promptly and used room service for the first time and it also was very prompt.
We will stay here again and would easily recommend it to anyone else.

Room Tip: Rooms on the pool side of the hotel are a bit quieter than the Albert Park side, although noise is n...

Although a bit dated (particularly in the bathroom) I had a fairly pleasant stay. My room was very spacious and looked onto the Golf course.
The staff were very polite (especially in the Sails Brasserie where I had special requests).
The hours of the services such as the gym, pool and breakfast were convenient and the location good.

First of all, the way in which the rooms are named is very confusing. We booked a twin and a double, presuming a double in one and two twins in the other. Nope! The twin room was huge and had two doubles and a view. The double was small and had no view :(
While our double was adequate, it was definitely dated. Huge water stain on the ceiling. The TV. Was a tiny old glass tube thing!! We had to get maintenance in twice to get the tv turned on - very peculiar system, and to get the air conditioning on - also hit or miss!

Our biggest beefs were with the customer service however. One receptionist, a woman, Winnie, was consistently short and rude whenever we approached her with questions. We had friends call the hotel three times to talk to us and each time they were told that we were not staying there.
Our family staying in the other room were woken up three times around 7:30, by housekeeping, despite the fact that they had the do not disturb sign on. On one occasion, they yelled that they were in the room sleeping but housekeeping just walked in on them and then ran out. No apologies.
We had a longer stay planned but cut it short.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior twin. It's way bigger. And I would suggest requesting pool view NOT garage vi...

Thankyou for providing your feedback for your stay this past week.

I have found your feedback and recommendations to be most helpful, and the details that were overlooked throughout your stay shouldn’t have occurred.

I do sincerely apologise we didn’t achieve the level of service we do strive for when it comes to the housekeeping issues you experienced during your stay. Certainly this is not the level of service we expect of ourselves and I do truly apologise

Again my apologies your stay did not live up to expectations and should you decide to ever return please feel free to contact me directly as I would love that chance to host you again and deliver the service I am proud of here at Bayview On the Park

The best is the location: handy& convenient to wherever you wish to go. Not to mention, you'll view the Lake waking up to the joggers who seem to be the moving picture at first glance rather than gloomy four walls of the room The insulation is ok, with a bit run-down furniture though. I will go there again travelling to Melbourne anytime.

Room Tip: Rooms with the lake view are fantastic.

Have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions - first time decided to dump it and to never return- despite the fact staff recognises me- they seem to have amnesia when it comes to usual courtesy- lousy rooms, lousy service even to senior corporate travellers, noisy hotel, dirty meeting rooms, hotel shows signs of deterioration

Great value for recent 3 night stay. Comfortable double beds in twin room, OK if not sharing. Clean and plenty of space including loads of natural light. On busy road but so well insulated there was very little traffic noise. Nothing special and looking a little tired is the only downside, but way better than expected in this price range. Not one for a special occassion night. Breakfast is good value and very reasonable at prepaid price of $17 for buffet. Great pool and outdoor area for relaxing. Easy 3 min walk to one of main tram stops with trams to city (30 min ) and St Kilda (20 Min) every few minutes. Well worth the stay.
