“Excellent, no complaints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Stayed with one friend for two nights for an architectural site visit, coming from Sydney. Unfortunately the only reason I rate the service 3/5 is because I was constantly hassled to submit the OurDeal voucher I required for my stay: fair enough, but it required a lot of correspondance with family in Sydney at less than ideal hours. The voucher was e-mailed through and I was still told it was not received. Having a CC of the e-mail, I showed it to the front desk who confirmed the email was correct and yet it had not gone through, despite going through to my own email. Obviously there are some email issues or something of the like.

Other than that, which was a minor blemish on an otherwise great trip, I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Great value for money (using the voucher) which included free breakfast, which was great. The surrounds are quiet despite being near a major road, facilities good and really nothing else to say. 10 minute tram ride to the CBD, and the tram stops about 100m from the hotel. Would definitely recommend.

Hi Anthony Z

I'd like to apologise for the problem you experienced with your voucher during your stay. The voucher is the method of payment for your booking and without it we don't get paid, which is why you need to provide it on check in. We did allow you to check in without the voucher as you were getting your family member to email it through to us. Unfortunately they emailed through the wrong item, it was a copy of the deal and not the actual voucher. We replied to them letting them know that and followed it up with you. The voucher was then received the following morning. There were no email issues, just a small mistake made by your family member which was rectified reasonably quickly.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the hotel though and we look forward to welcoming you back again.

Kind Regards

We bought a coupon of the internet and have to say it delivered on everything that was advertised. Great location and well appointed. We arrived early and the room was not ready, but that was fine with us. Very helpful front desk. They offered to hold our bags until the room was ready.We went out and returned in the evening after dinner to find our bags in the room. Room was very nice and plenty of space. Hugh bed and very comfy. Carpark was a bit of a challenge with a big sedan but we managed. Great breakfast buffet that catered for everything. Will be back to this beautiful Hotel, enjoyed our stay it was just to short. Hope you will have more of these specials as I will use them again.

Very centrally located and if you have a car, very easy to get too, and leave. Rooms and bed were awesome and they have some very special deals. We got the parking and breakfast included, and I stay in Melb a fair bit, this is the best deal available. On top of all this, staff great, position excellent and value better than none!

Room Tip: Keep an eye on their special deals. If you need to be East/South of Melbourne, this is the place to...

I stayed here twice in July with my wife and two boys.

The room was well laid out and the decor quite modern and stylish. The beds are super comfortable. Rooms were well serviced and very clean.

Buffet breakfast offered a great variety and the hot food was constantly being replenished.

Despite what others are saying, it's really not that far from the CBD. The trams are very frequent and it only took 5 - 8 minutes to get to Flinders St.

The staff are great. They had great advice on how to get around, what to see and do in Melbourne and were very helpful with the baggage issues we had with our airline. They had activity packs for the kids on arrival - nice touch.

All in all, a very comfortable, relaxing stay at a well appointed hotel. I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for two nights and although it's a fair way from the CBD there are trams close and the service was superb. Loved the gym and will definitely be back again when we come to Melbourne. We had breakfast and although it was expensive there was plenty of food.

Thanks for your great review we appreciate it. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, the service is something we work really hard at and it's great to hear your positive comments. We currently have a free breakfast special on some of the websites at the moment so could be a good time to grab a room.

Stayed here for one night as we were in Melbourne to watch the Liverpool FC v Melbourne Victory game. Having stayed at many luxury hotels around the world my expectation is generally high of hotels. This hotel did not disapoint one bit, free wifi and free breakfast was included in an already amazingly low price of about $130 a night. Both my fiancee and I loved our stay, the beds were comfy, the bathroom was clean and looked modern. The only thing I did not like was our view which was of another highrise building next to us and the distance away from Melbourne CBD (10 minute tram ride or 45 minute walk). Overall, a lovely stay and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Hi jogti811

Thanks for your great review we really appreciate it. Next time book a city view room and you get guaranteed a front facing room that looks out over the park and the city skyline. It's usually around $20 - $30 more on the website.

We left it a bit last minute to book a hotel for our anniversary, and not wanting to spend a whole lot we ventured a little out of the city center and found this great hotel.
The deal we got was pretty good and included parking and a buffet breakfast. The staff were kind enough to let us leave the car at the hotel until after lunch so we could explore the area on foot. Probably not really walking distance to any tourist attractions, but we certainly had a good wander around.
The layout of the room was great, with a small dressing area before you walk into the bathroom, and the spa/sauna facilities on the top floor, although not huge were nice and clean.
Check out was 11am, which was much appreciated.
We stayed in a City View room with a king size bed. Only complaint, which again is my pet hate, no extra blankets in the room for people like me who freeze at night.
