We liked this hotel although the location left a lot to be desired. It was a great location for the beach, however it is at least a 15 min bus ride away from the main bars and restaurants - there are only other hotels at this end of Collins Avenue. There was also ALOT of construction literally next door and opposite the hotel - we even witnessed one hotel being demolished!
However, the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable. The hotel rooms were also lovely - we spent 6 nights in no.25 which was fine, however we also spent one night in no.22 and could hear everything the couple in the adjoining room was getting up to as the walls were very thin!
The food was ok but very expensive for what we got and the drinks were also very pricey so we never went to to the bar for that reason.
Apart from our comments above, the hotel, which had an Art Deco design had character and pleasant staff. However we would probably not stay here again due to the location.
