“Nice location, comfy beds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This hotel was easy to find and located in a nice area. There was plenty of parking and, at $18/night, it was cheaper than many other city hotels. The room was quiet, tasteful and spacious. The beds were soft and very comfortable. The restaurant dinner menu was nice but service was a bit random. Breakfast buffet was great - plenty of yummy options. Recommended.

My husband and I decided to stay at the Parkview and have a weekend in town. Had a lovely room on the 9th floor, spectacular views, superbly comfy bed, spotlessly clean room and bathroom, very efficient and friendly check in.
Unfortunately my husband was taken ill and an ambulance was needed, I rang reception in a panic, I think it was Ashleigh who got the ambos for us asap, thank you.
The manager on duty, Rebecca was fantastic, showed the ambos up to our room, offered to stay with me and what could she do to help. My husband was taken over the road to the Alfred Hospital, I needed to extent my stay to be close, this was no problem. The day my husband was discharged, I asked if they wd mind if I left my car in the car park till it was time to pick him up late in the afternoon, this also was no problem, so thank you again.
The breakfast had a great selection, I asked for porridge which they made for me.Trams run frequently outside to the city, a short trip away.
We hope to stay again at the Parkview, next time without the drama, the staff were excellent including the housekeeping staff. well done all.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from lifts.

A very comfortable hotel....the bed and pillow were great! Coming from a rather fat distance, I really enjoyed the bed, was able to sleep immediately and woke up feeling very refreshed indeed. Very nice staff, good breakfast though a little repetitious, though you could ask for special meals. They had gluten free cereal....great! Very close to the tram line to the city and load of place to eat nearby. On tram line to major shopping centre. The city view room really do have a great view of the city, worth asking for.
Right opposite a tennis court and near the golf course too.

Room Tip: Ask for a city view room....worth the view!

Nice comfy room. Air conditioning was great. Hall way noise a little loud and the elevators were very very old but worked fine. Car park very tight to get around.
Excellent breakfast! Yummy.
Have to ask to get mini bar unlocked so didn't bother.
Over all the best park of the hotel is the view and comfort.
Oh yes staff were very helpful.

everything about this hotel was great. I especially enjoyed the wednesday night drinks with managment. If i had to complain it would be the carpark, had trouble getting out of my space but overall a most enjoyable stay
