A group of us have been friends since meeting in Sydney in the early 80's and some years back we decided we should all get together every year or two altho we're spread out around the country. As it was we decided on Melbourne as it was easiest for us all to get to. Little did I realise when I organised our weekend it was Melbourne Cup weekend so I thought accommodation might be a little tricky. As it was we got into the Southbank Plum Serviced Apartments. We booked 2 two bedroom apartments and 1 single bedroom. Booking was easy and no probs checking in - we did have to sign a no party and no smoking policy. One of our friends drove from country Victoria and parking was available at the property which she didn't have to book and cost $12/day. The day we arrived a new French Patisserie opened next door which offered great fare - yum.. The rooms were great. The living area was spacious, self contained with kitchenette, laundry and very comfortable. We had a good view from the balcony. It's in a good location and the city centre is within an easy walk - if you like walking that is. All in all a good place to stay and I would again. The only thing that we thought a little unusual in our apartment was the double bedroom door was mostly glass with no curtain or screen so no privacy.
