“Park View Melbourne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Comfortable room overlooking park which was nice. Friendly & helpful staff. Very quick lifts. Close & easy access to city. The parking underneath was very tight but was reasonably priced. Would stay here again. Was a pleasant stay. Only negatives would be the front door quite heavy with your hands full & very noisy party in the room next door on last night. (Not that they could do much about that)

Room Tip: We had a room on the 6th floor overlooking the park which was quite nice.

Thank you for taking the time to inform me about your stay. I am delighted you found the staff helpful and friendly which I will certainly pass on your comments. The front doors are a little heavy to prevent occasional gusts of wind blowing them open. Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance at reception if a porter is not in the lobby at the time. I hope to welcome you back soon.

Comfortable, quiet and great view from the top floor across to the ocean.
The staff were friendly and warm and very happy to help with any inquiries.
Breakfast was included in our package. Definitely adequate although service (clearing table) was rather slow along with replenishing of food and utensils. Coffee was very poor and the Woods cafe shut its espresso machine at 11am ( on a Sunday)
Evening staff were more relaxed and aimed to please even removing drink charges from the account as other things were not up to scratch.
All up though would stay again as one tram trip into the city for shopping, shows and dining.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from busy St Kilda Road. Our corner room was slightly larger and had love...

Thank you for taking the time to inform me on your recent stay. Please accept my apologies that it appears that we did not get all of our food and beverage service correct on this occasion. It appears that this did not overshadow your stay at the hotel and I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Took advantage of the "Refuel Package" which provided $25 fuel card per day of stay which made an already reasonable rate outstanding. Booking early meant we got a top floor room with a view equal to the best. Staff were pleasant and friendly in reception and dining areas.

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.
