“Great place for a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I got a great deal from Travelzoo that's why I said "great place for a great price with a free wifi, free buffet breakfast and free car parking onsite". The room 415 we had was so nice and clean with a great view outside. The kids enjoyed the spa pool on the top floor. We walked around to the Albert Park Lake which was relaxing. Surely we will be going back there in May because I already bought a voucher for it again.

We stayed for 3 nights and location to the city, Chapel street and St Kilda were excellent. The tram was close by and easy to use. There was also a 7/11 nearby so that we could buy our Myki cards.
The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly.
The pool wasn't a pool it was a spa which was a little disappointing. Other then that we would stay here again.

We have stayed at the Parkview in a number of occasions. Each time the staff have been well mannered and pleasant to deal with and always are willing to go that extra mile to ensure a perfect stay.

The rooms are well kept and clean, with a confinable bed and pillow menu for those who need it.
The hotel is along St Kilda road so travel into the city is a 10 minute tram ride, taxis available from out the front of the hotel also.

Breakfast is a buffet with freshly cooked options and they also cater for gluten free guests.

Thanks to the staff and management for maintain such high standards
See you again soon

Stayed a few times now and always been happy. Couldn't get parking this trip bit free parking across the road at night and weekends so no real issues. Rooms are big and well equipped, hotel is smart and breakfast is pretty good. Usually god deals available if you research a little. Definitely go back.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here with the Indulgence package they have available on line. We paid AUD$379 and recieved...a deluxe city view room, champagne and strawberries, two half hour massages, a three course meal in their restuarant, full buffet breakfast, late checkout, car parking and a newspaper. We were delighted with every minute of our stay. the room has a great city view through large surrounding windows, the room was immaculate, our meal service in the resturant was devine with plenty of food and choices. Normally their is a set menu for deals like these but, you were free to pick any entree, main, side and dessert off the menu. We were so full after our meal staff offered to send dessert up to our room later that evening....the pool on the roof is really only a spa...which suited us fine but it probably would not suit people with children or those who want a swim as such. i looked hard to find a fault and all I could come up with was the salt and pepper shakers in the resturant were a bit grotty and could have done with a clean....we were most happy here and would deffinately recommend the package deals the hotel offers.

Very nice hotel located on St Kilda road. Lots of trees and parkland around the hotel. Easy tram or taxi ride to the CBD. Room and bed was good. Had a great view over the city. Unfortunately we had a bad experience with breakfast. We were keen to get in more sightseeing so ordered coffee and toast for a quick getaway. Coffee can within 5 minutes but the toast took 45 minutes. Seriously - 45 minutes for toast!!!!! The third staff member was asked apologised and said they were busy, however there were many empty tables outside were we were seated.

Hi Pat R

Thanks for your review, we really appreciate all feedback, good and bad. Sorry also about the wait on your toast, it was indeed a very busy morning but that is no reason to take so long for so simple an order.

My business takes me to Melbourne very 8 weeks,for the past 20 years I have been staying at this Hotel as it is convenient as I work across the road. I have seen it change hands over the years several times but it has been The Parkview for quite a number of years and yes it did get a little tired,but a couple of years ago it was well and truly refurbished everything out and new furniture in,with a lot of thought,to design and colour. Love their showers so sensible,the tap is at the other end of the shower,which is large,which means you don't get wet or burnt turning it on and the shower head is big .The beds are magic and the sheets are all beautifully pressed ,large towells and the bathrooms have all the amenities.the room itself is very comfortable.The only thing I miss being a woman who wears makeup ,is good lighting in the bathroom and a wall magnifying mirror 5x,I don't think they have enough mirrors for a woman,the hotel I believe caters a little more to the business man in that area.I love the rooms facing the cricket ground and park ,you get full sunshine and some mornings if you wake up early you get to see 3or4 of the BIG colourful Balloons on their scenic flight over Melbourne.You can even open a window a little way to get some air ,which is a bonus in a hotel.The restaurant is good and is always busy as is their coffee machines and Bar.I enjoy my stay every time .

Hi Ms Glover - Hovan

It's great to see such a long term customer with such a great feeling for the hotel. We all love coming to work there and it's so good to hear that our customers love it too. I haven't been here as long as you have, just 12 and a half years, but I certainly enjoy it enough to make the 20.
