I travelled down to Melbourne for the Australian Open Tennis and stayed at the Quay West, it is located very close to the Yarra in Southbank, a fabulous location with restaurants and shops all around, the city is a walk over the bridge to Flinders Train station and public transport is about 50m away or 30m to a water taxi.
The standard room was most acceptable and very clean; it had a small but good kitchenette and the bathroom was great with a large shower head, wonderful.
The only down side to the room was the bed, as it was 2 x single beds pushed together, I know that that is how it is done now but these two beds had a large ridge between them, fortunately I only needed one side.
Breakfast was OK, and had the basic breakfast foods, the service was good and the girls were always cheerful; the property is now a member of the Accor group and will accept the Advantage Plus Card for meals, so pretty good value.
Reception was good and staff very friendly.
A bit pricey but overall a great place to stay.
