“Bargain price for excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

The hotel is very conveniently located, right behind the Langham in Southbank. It was a very easy and safe walk to the restaurants in Southbank and the Crown Casino complex. Yes, you are not near the famed laneways of Melbourne, but you also see less grime, litter and graffiti and it's quieter. The room was basic but the bed was very comfortable and I had a great night's sleep. My only gripe was the lack of a bath tub, but one can't have everything, especially at this price!

It was a first time experience staying so close to everything in Melbourne CBD and the experience was a good one.We walked to the Comedy theatre via a restaurant and back again despite a very heavy thunderstorm. Compared to other motels the Travelodge is a bare necessities venue. We missed the little things like an exhaust fan in the bathroom, a TV program guide hard copy but apart from that our stay was a pleasant one. No in house carparking was not a major issue as the Langham Hotel opposite serves as a car park for Travelodge as well.Get your carpark ticket validated before you leave or pay a premium in fees.

Dear divad_s1947,

The Team are delighted to hear you enjoyed your recent stay at Travelodge Southbank. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your positive feedback.

All of our bathrooms do have exhaust fans positions directly above the shower, I apologise if there was a problem wiht the fan in your room. I would invite you to contact me directly at thotel and advise what room you stayed in so that I can arrange for our engineering team to check the fan.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our Travelodge Hotels in the near future.

Warm Regards,

The Travelodge Southbank is in a great location in Melobourne. It is in walking distance of the best restaurants, shopping areas, Crown casino, and much more. The hotel was very clean and the rooms are spacious.

This hotel is very convenient to first class restaurants and bars. In walking distance to Flinders Street station.
The hotel is always clean. It is a typical Travelodge room. Small but it has a small kitchenette area with a sink and microwave.
Overall very good.

WOW! If you're staying in Melbourne, want a side-city centre location, with greenery, river, sidewalks, restaurants, action, entertainment and shopping, this could not be a more fantastic location.
Approx 6 mins walk over a bridge is the city centre itself. theatre, shows, restaurants, china town a must - all walking distance. Don't need a car, so dump it at hire car place on arrival because hotel has fantastic shuttle bus for couple of quid, straight to the airport departure gate.

Hotel itself: GREAT SIZED ROOM, SPOTLESS, HOTEL STAFF MORE THAN HELPFUL.

Room Tip: If you get a good rate, this is the perfect, quiet location, with access on the doorstep for everyth...

We were attending a seminar at the convention centre so it was a good location for this. The rooms are clean but small. Breakfast was ordinary so we ate out on second morning. This was a mistake because there was nowhere nice that was close, so it's best to stick with ordinary. Staff were pleasant and went that little bit , especially when we wanted a taxi to take us a short distance.
