We stayed for three nights to see the Aust Open for our 30th wedding anniversary and we were able to walk to Melbourne Park, access the free on site parking (only 3 spots so. Get in early) and have lovely breakfasts on verandah in morning and drinks on roof in evening. Friendly, relaxed informative, considerate staff. They very kindly threw in some champers when they learned it was a special occasion for us. Highly recommended!
