“Good deal, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

Booked 1 night on whotif for $169 with buffet breakfast and free parking. We then booked another night and they matched the same whotif deal. The room was great but we had a view of a white wall from the high rise next door. Great overall though.

Great place to stay, great food both dinner and breakfast. Fabulous location. Nothing but enjoyable and the best. Easy to park at night, gives you great views of the CBC. Everything is within reach. Want to get to town get a tram , or walk to St Kilda. Take a tram to Chapel st.

Room Tip: Corner room gives you a balcony

I have been a guest at Parkview for a couple of years now and continue to be delighted every time I stay there. The staff are friendly and welcoming, they remember your name and always say hello. This is my preferred hotel in MElb - give it a try.

Room Tip: If you like a feather pillow, ask at reception when you book in.

I stayed here a few years ago, the hotel was really comfortable although just a bit too far from the cbd without a car, although the tram ride was interesting. You are not far from St Kilda Beach which was a lovely stroll .

Hotel was lovely and clean. No guest directory of Melbourne in the room. The car park was bit of a tight squeeze. Heard people in the next room arguing through the night and doors banging. But it was a lovely hotel, close to transport, staff were helpful, breakfast was wonderful. would recommend this hotel to anyone. I would stay there again.

Hi Marlene ! Thanks for taking the time to inform me about your stay. Your comments regarding the service directory have moved up my list as it has now appeared a couple of times. The current directory is electronic and appears through the television system but some of our guests are not finding this. It is with comments such as yours which helps us make changes to improve our service and facilities. Thank you again

The hotel room was of an average standard. There were a couple of really annoying incidents such as a lack of guest directory in the room, the television not initially operating and the electronic room key failing several times, however, the staff were very helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to inform me about your stay. I apologise that not all items appear to have been working in your room when you arrived. The service directory is now a digital copy on your television which obviously would have been a problem if your television did not initially work. I am delighted that my staff were friendly and were able to assist. Thank you again

This is our favourite hotel in Melbourne. We've stayed there heaps of times and the rooms are always comfortable and spacious with great views over the city. The buffet breakfast is fantastic and the staff are always friendly and helpful. This hotel is great value for money and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
