“park view melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

My wife & I stayed here prior to a large event we were attending in melbourne. The staff are very helpful & friendly. We needed to check out very early and staff made it a breeze.We had a lovely room over looking the park which was great. We did not eat in the restaurant so cannot review it but my wife & I did enjoy a few drinks at the bar & it was very friendly.
Thanks

I stay at the Parkview quite regularly and would highly recommend it for location and value. My only criticism is the front door! It's so heavy and if there are no staff to assist you it can be a struggle with bags!

Thank you for your nice comments. The front doors are a little heavy mainly to prevent and wind coming through to the foyer. I will pass your comments onto my front office team so that we may be a little quicker to assist you and other guests with the doors. I hope to welcome you back soon.

Took advantage of a great offer, staying in the city for a special event. The hotel location was perfect. The room larger than a 'normal' hotel room. Comfortable. Had a pre-dinner drink in the bar and breakfast the next morning.

We have been frequent guests at the Melbourne Parkview over the past 7 years. We have stayed for business, for romantic weekends, for family get togethers. We originally stayed @ The Parkview when my husband was flying in and out of Melbourne for work and the Parkview and its wonderful staff became like a second family to him for a couple of years. When I visited for a romantic little get together I too was welcomed like fond family coming home. These days the business travel is less but the vistis to Melbourne to visit family / friends has increased... and The Parkview is our only choice. The rooms are large and spacious, beds big and comfortable, rooms dark for amazing nights sleep. The staff throughout all areas of The Parkview are welcoming, pleasant, fun... nothing is ever too much trouble, and always with a smile. No matter how stressful our day returning to the Parkview in the evening is always like coming home. And the surrounding views and facilities to Melb are great.. with a tram almost on your doorstop to link you wherever you want to go...pleasant walks and city lights

Miriam, thank you for writing such a wonderful review about the hotel and staff. With so many visits you are able to experience the hotel and service in more detail than a guest that may have only stayed on one occasion. I know that all of the team will be excited to read your comments ! I hope to welcome back both yourself and Steve in the very near future.

Booked four nights via wot if so we could go to the Melbourne cup. On arrival from Perth we were given room 105 on the first floor. Lovely spacious room with king bed.was very clean and comfortable. Only problem as we were right above where the trucks pulled in to bring supplies or something it was extremely noisy. Sound like a tram every two minutes for around two hours from around 5.45 an to around 7.30. After the second night we asked to be moved. The staff were excellent and moved us straight away to room 520. Same as the other room but a lot less noisy. The breakfast was ok,plenty of choice but wasn't very hot. The spa on the 9th floor is amazing. The views are fab. Overall we would stay here again. If you plan on using the tram get you myki organized . Ask at the staff counter as we had to try and work it out ourselves. Had a very pleasant trip :)

Thank you for informing me about your recent stay. I am delighted that we were able to move you to another room due to noise. It is also helpful knowing which rooms you stayed in as I can have the room window seals checked to ensure that they are functioning correctly. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and will pass your comments onto my team.

I am a pain in the butt when we are looking for accommodation for our trips. I really like NICE but not too expensive but with added extras and this is what we got with Melbourne Parkview Hotel. Parkview had a couple of great specials happening at the time we were travelling so check the botels website before booking on other wensitea. Staff very friendly and helpful, room lovely and roomy overlooking the oval and city, breakfast had everything you wished for except I am not keen on the thermos plungers they have for hot water for your tea and coffee as they do not stay hot. (Just a personal thing so don't take it as a negative for this hotel) Not far from tram stop to go to the CBD. Plenty of choices for dinner around the Albert Park areas. We had a great time, caught up with friends in Melb. Would definitely go back to Melbourne Parkview Hotel :)

We purchased a deal on Scoopon and the service and overall deal far exceeded expectations. Great breakfast, great king bed and modern room layout. The service was great. I hope to buy a deal like this again. We had a wonderful deal and experience.
