“Standards need to improve”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The room you are assigned at Reception is pot luck. We asked to be moved to a different room, which was more satisfactory. Don't be deceived by the website pictures this B&B is being slowly run into the ground by the Owners. The level of routine cleanliness and maintenance is poor and just a bit more attention would give this lovely period building the treatment it deserves.
The location is excellent, close to Melbourne Park and for the Trams into the city centre.
The breakfast was plentiful although the hot meal option could have been a little more varied.
WiFi was free and with a good quality signal
If Georgian Court continues down this path and ignore the feedback from social networks then it will invite a visit form the variety of booking agents who market this establishment

Room Tip: Ask to see your room first before you take up occupancy. The size and quality of each room varies co...

We have arrived late in evening. Staff was helpful and we managed to get rest soon. Georgian court has perfect location/price. Its outdated but clean. We travel with small child and we managed to get around in Melbourne only by foot.

Rooms are small, but bathroom is nice. Breakfast is OK.
The price was very good so all the minuses are ignored.

Room Tip: We stayed in room with bathroom. There are also rooms with common bathrooms.

The room was no surprise. Small and comfortable, and a room of contrast. Old room, new bathroom. Car park VERY cosy and not easy to access unless you have a small car. Breakfast choice was huge. Front desk staff were great and very helpful, but the look we got from the cook when we arrived 5 minutes early for breakfast! Overall good value for money.

We stayed 3 nights mid week in an ensuite room on the ground floor. This is an extremely cheap Melbourne stay option that is well situated for a stroll into the centre of town.
However the poor bits: it badly needs a face lift. painting coming off scuffed walls, grouting in bathroom not the best, cracks in ceiling, towels very thin, bugs in the room (although I dont think they were the biting types), a bit of a rabbit warren to locate room, parking was free out the back but drive way and entrance to carpark is so tight a great deal of care needs to be taken to avoid damage to vehicles. There was plenty of evidence that some cars did not escape scratch free. Power points in the room were a bit dodgy requiring adaptors to make up the numbers needed. Corridors were very noisy (not the guests - the floor boards). TV was tiny and perched in a cupboard so it was difficult to see.

The good bits:. Cheap, a nice walk into the centre or the free city circuit tram. Breakfast although not very exciting was ample and OK. Bed was firm and comfy. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Would I stay there again? If I was driving into Melbourne maybe, if I was flying then no, I think there are slightely more expensive, better value units close to the centre, but the car parking charges are pretty high.

Room Tip: Ask for one with an ensuite rather than a seperate bathroom

Although this hotel is a bit of a walk to the CBD it's a pleasant walk with much to see (architecture , parks and the Cook House). Great breakfast with lots of variety. Free internet that works in the rooms near the entrance. Comfortable quarters with a fridge. The hot water takes a little while to heat up. Would stay again. Staff is friendly and helpful.

We stayed here in August 2013, we stayed two nights....... the room was okay as we were only sleeping in there and we weren't spending much time in there otherwise. The bathroom was really small and the sink had what looked like spilt paint in it.. there were hairs on the floor, the bathroom sliding door lifted away from the track there were cracks in the walls and cobwebs all over the place. When we went to breakfast the tablecloths were dirty and everything looked as though it needed a good clean and the hosts seemed to want it over and done with as soon as possible. When we returned to our room after being out all day we were expecting our room to have been serviced but all that was done was the bed roughly pulled up and towels replaced no bin emptied. All in all this was NOT value for money and the owners should put some effort into upgrading , maintaining and cleaning the property. My advise don't stay here unless you can actually see the place with your own eyes because the web site is very deceiving.

On the plus side the guy on reception was friendly - we arrived fairly late in evening. This place is old and really needs a lot of work. Our room was clean enough for a sleep but that is about it - we had a Hummer duvet cover on the bed????? Everything is old but not quaint - I would look around, this isn't value for money sadly - a renovation and this place could be amazing as the potential us there
