“Enjoyed our stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for 5 nights over New Year.I managed to get an excellent rate via the hotel by booking early, and paying in advance.Our apartment was not as good looking as the one on the website ,and was ready for refurbishment ,however it was spacious and on the 5th floor of the tower.Some attention needs to be paid to details,cleaning around the edges of carpets,dusting skirtings,some curtain hooks were missing otherwise cleaning was fine.
Bed was very comfy and sheets nice.We heard very little from other guests, apart from New Years Eve when noise is to be expected.We occasionally heard the swishing of the lift but I soon got used to it and wasn't a problem.And I hate noise.We were at the rear of the building and there was no noise from traffic.
Location is excellent,nearby lots of trams, short walk to town and southbank,Botanic Gardens and Shrine of Remembrance.Watched childrens fireworks from our balcony and midnight fireworks on the steps in front of Shrine, amazing ,cross the road and we were home.
Pool is quite small and indoors.Staff were helpful and friendly.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay,small details didn't detract.Having cooking facilities was really handy .We would return as we liked the area so much.

Room Tip: I would always ask for a high room, but there are only 6 floors available.

Got this hotel on a Wotif special, room was spacious but could be a little bit cleaner. Staff were friendly. Was nice and close to the tram stops so getting to the cbd was no trouble. Location is great if you want to check out the botanic gardens.

Easy, friendly and great location. The room was better then we expected and we would be happy to stay here again. Breakfast was great and parking was easy.
On entry the staff were friendly and very helpful.
Also the view from our balcony over the botanical gardens was beautiful to wake up to and late check out was a plus.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

I booked this accommodation at the very last minute during the 2014 Aussie open weekend so didn't know what to expect. To my surprise, given the price I had paid, the place was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. The furnishing was of extremely high standard. The lady at the reception was very friendly and have some useful suggestions. I was given a late checkout at no extra cost. I will sure be staying here again and again and again.

Very nice stay here, large clean rooms and small kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and very nice bed linen.
Trams can be caught right outside the hotel but it is only a 10 min walk into the CBD. Very handy for botanic gardens, MCG and tennis. (Easily walkable about another 15mins).
We didn't use the restaurant or pool but looked ok, the restaurant probably a bit on basic side.
Would recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Side room away from road

After the room was charged at $309 a night plus parking at $20 you would imagine this motel to be luxurious and clean. This was not the case with the bathroom absolutely discusting with mould and dirty tiles, half used toilet rolls, and marks all over the wall. There was no fan in the bathroom and you could see sweat and dirt marks all down the walls. The so called balcony was dirty and windows were filthy!
The manager shown us to another room as I was so discusted in the first one but it was just as bad. I am not at all impressed with the service and or qaulity of this motel. The manager would not refund our money to leave and go to another motel would only do 50%, as we should give 48 hours. BUT HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW IT WAS GROSS!!! I was not impressed as I had taken my partner away for wkd for his birthday.

I will never ever stay here again and will never recommend this motel to anyone. TERRIBLE SERVICE AND QUALITY OT MOTEL. SHOULD ONLY BE 2 STAR

Room Tip: not a nice motel dont book
