“Excellent place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Magnolia Court Boutique, Melbourne is an excellent place to stay with all basic needs (free breakfast - good variety of choices, free Wifi) at a very budget price. Located at a very beautiful residential place, near to MCG and CBD; tram stations are very nearby, even the city circle tram (which offers free ride). Good for single, couple or family.

I have known this property for over 15 years but never stayed there. I booked in for one night this week as I had a meeting round the cirner. Yes, uts cheap at $90 for a base room, but boy is it tired! Reception was fibe. Friendly. The room, number 7, was poor. Durty. Scratched paintwork. The bathroom was mouldy and definitely below standard. But on the positive side, the location is great. Its quiet. Close to some very nice eateries. Unsure the intentions of the owners, but this would make a very very good boutique B & B if money was spent.

I booked this hotel after seeing the charming pictures on the internet. I was shocked at the state of the room (room 5). Poor fitting curtains, broken mirror in the bathroom, soap dispenser with no soap, broken handle with exposed wires on the hairdryer, broken bedside lamps (likely to scone you on the head if you accidentally knocked them), exposed fuse box on the wall, FREEZING cold. Generally B&Bs I've stayed at are warm, cosy and homely. This is the 'polar' opposite. They rate themselves as 4 star. I recently stayed at the Carrington Hotel in Katoomba which is four star - Magnolia Court is nowhere in their league. Stay here if you like it cheap and nasty.

Nice location ruined by terrible staff. The location was excellent within 10 minutes of the MCG and 15 minute walk to the CBD. I had taken my 15 year old son to the footy for his birthday and booked a twin room. The room was fairly cramped with two single beds end to end. Basic facilities but clean and reasonable. Our experience with the staff however was terrible. Twice had the manager hang up in my ear prior to arrival. should have been an omen. Overcharged for the room and then lied about it. Blamed Booking.com and wouldn't acknowledge paperwork proving the correct amount. I wouldn't go back and am still waiting for a response to my last two emails. As you can see all of my reviews are typically positive but these guys are not to be trusted. Buyer beware.

Great central accommodation, although the rooms are on the small side. Stayed over night on a boys weekend to the footy and found the accommodation cosy, clean and good value. A quick walk to a 7-11 and the Jolimont station, with a quick train trip into the city. Breakfast was sufficient but a slightly cramped dining room when busy. Would be happy to stay again especially if catching a game of footy at the MCG.

This accommodation does have small rooms but these rooms are reasonably cosy. For such a central location the price was excellent, the staff were very friendly and it was an easy walk to a railway or tram line. I enjoyed the buffet breakfast and the dine-in menu service available. It was great having free Internet and some cooking facilities, including fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle, available in the room. I also felt very safe as guests needed a room key to get into the hotel, so very good security measures.
The only fault I would give it is that the lights are not fitted securely to the walls, the fire alarm was hanging from the roof by its cables (not sure it was really connected). Another suggestion I would give is make available the public transport cards at the front desk (not just magnolia court, but also Metro).

Room Tip: Ask for a top or 2nd floor room on north of the building, views are good, much better than looking a...

This is great value for money. Good substantial spread for breakfast, fast wifi, clean room and bathroom. It's not a new place, but the staff work hard and are friendly. Parking is very limited. Air con needs patience but works nicely. Happy to return.
