“Ok but disapointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

The rooms a bit pokey for twins and worn out looking. The staff were great though. Could do with a make over and attention to detail but you get what you pay for. More for the budget traveller. Good location near Albert Park and easy tram on St Kilda road to city. Make a judgement call people.

It only cost me $115 for a premium room at Bayview on the Park and the room was great! It was larger than. Normal room and had all the amenities you need.

The hotel itself is located south of the CBD so is about a 15 minute tram ride into Bourke St Mall. It's a good option for anyone not wanting to pay for the hotels in the CBD, providing you're happy to tram and walk it everywhere.

I booked 2 nights in the hotel over the Australia Day for a little get away. It is a perfect location - easy access to the city and to St Kilda via tram! It was a nice, spacious and clean room.
Unfortunately, due to unforseen circumstances I was unable to stay the second night. At 3 or 4am i went to reception and informed them that i will be checking out and understood that i could not receive a refund however if i was able to receive a credit note that would be great - but understood if they couldn't (due to the late notice). The girl on reception went and talked to who i believe was the manager on duty. They both came out and happily offered me a refund. Thank you for being compassionate and for the refund.

I stay at Bayview on the Park at least 3 days out of every month and it has become my home away from away.
Whilst the hotel is not five stars, the rooms are spacious and clean with all the usual amenities and the staff are so friendly. The location is great, close to everything and the pricing is excellent for inner city accommodation.

Room Tip: Premier suites are much nicer than standard rooms

It only takes one. But while I HAD been a regular at this hotel, having stayed over 5 time in a few months, I struck racial prejudice while having a meal in the restaurant with my wife (Aust citizen, but born in China) and was very NOT IMPRESSED. Reported to the night manager, who dis-believed it, but I have never returned.
No-one needs to be treated like that anywhere.
The Restaurant manageress was haughty, rude, racially intolerant, and unforgiving, despite my quite friendly nature. Having a long experience working as a drink- waiter in hospitality myself as a med student in Hobart, I am VERY understanding, and rewarding in tips !!! when I eat out and stay. But. This was from Fawlty Towers, with racism thrown in. Never will I stay here or go here again. I suspect that the offending staffer does not work there any more, but attitudes like that often start at the top of an organisation and filter down. How dare she? Walk away is my recommendation. Lots of alternatives, as I discovered, and friendly to boot. Bonus !!

sadly dated décor and did not live up to expectations, eg room service available but breakfast was cold, no table for dining at, one chair for a double (queen) room, maybe we were expected to take turns, not as clean as could be (especially under bench in bathroom, no available plugs near bed for CPAP machine and no extension cords available, detailed instructions for aircon using remote but remote not provided and system superseded. mini bar pathetic. staff all seemed nice. would never stay here again even though price was mid range

We purchased some vouchers for a nights stay at the hotel which included breakfast & late checkout. I had read some reviews about this hotel which weren't so good however we were pleasantly surprised. Yes, it is a little old & the hotel could do with updating the furniture but it was clean, nice size rooms which includes lounges & coffee table (may give you an idea how big the rooms are). We had the Albert park view which was beautiful. Service was friendly & breakfast was good too, had to wait a bit for the staff to top up but overall it was ok.
