“very basic but the best buffet brekkie”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This hotel is very basic:
---no fridge
---no microwave
when you check in they swipe $100 from your credit card for incidentals even though there's none to break in the room & the money will be sitting there for 1 week before you can access it. full buffet breakfast which is the best, & parking are available for purchase. the bed is very comfortable, heating is good & shower is very strong...this hotel for me is not worth $135 per night.

This is a very basic venue. Accommodation is average. Service is very good. Buffet breakfast is rubbish. Dinner is ok but pricier than it should be. WiFi is terrible and not as advertised. This hotel is worth $120au per night maximum.

I stayed here with my husband during a business trip. The hallway areas were dimly lit with a random armchair or two with loose red or blue upholstery. A bit dingie looking.
The room was clean but basic. Our room had no wardrobe, just a wood panelled area about a metre wide with a few coat hangers. An ironing board and iron were leaning against the wall next to the desk. Hmmm.
The bathroom looked very nice with a clear glass vanity top, however the narrow shower partition allowed so much water onto the floor that the mat was saturated.
Our stay included breakfast which was quite good, with a reasonable variety of food available. Staff were very nice too.
Ok for an overnight stay when you're passing through.

The staff here are amazing
We found accomadation close to hospital
After checking in and directed to the hsptl we found our relative
Upon returning to the reception the staff asked about our relative
AMAZING with all their other guests
We had dinner in the restaurant
Reasonable wines but beautiful food and sensational staff again
I think we will be back but would not consider any other accomadation

A business type hotel with well appointed rooms with free Wi-Fi for the business traveler.
Onsite parking
Good onsite restaurant with a good choice of well cooked meals.
Right opposite a major shopping centre with cinemas.
Seems to attract the business traveler along with bus loads of international tourists

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

I stayed here while I was working across the street at Dandenong Plaza.

Staff were really nice who were always helpful although check out was a long process. The pre auth on my credit card was returned on my day of departure which I was greatful for.

The room was a hotel style room which was small although plenty for what I needed. It was clean and comfortable.

My only complaint is that the passage is so noisy. You can here everyone walking past and everyone speaking which was frustrating when you want an early night for work the following day.

Car parking was easy and it was appreciated that I could leave my car on the day of arrival and departure.
