“Pleasantly surprised.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Wasn't expecting much as we only needed a bed for a two night quick stay before and after attending a wedding 25 mins down the road, First impressions were favorable , Effortless check in, good food and sevice in the restaurant ( although hidden away behind the pokies room, I'm not a pokies fan ) clean and comfortable. Loved the fact that the Breakfast chef went out of his way to accomadate us for an early Breakfast one and a half hours before normal opening time, How many places would do that? no faults for the price, look for advertised deals to keep the costs even lower. Close to shopping centre and fairly accessible to Melbourne CBD if you have a car.

Room Tip: Try a for a room facing off the main road, Its quieter and Darker at night.

Thank you for your kind remarks.

The Quality Hotel Taylors Lakes indeed is a "hidden" gem not far from Melbourne Airport and within easy reach to Melbourne CBD. Our aim is to provide quality accommodation with great customer service. It is nice to hear we are delivering on this. Your thanks have been passed on to our breakfast chef.

Kind Regards.

My wife and I are regulars at this wonderful gem of a hotel. As a matter of fact I'm writing this in one of the rooms now.
The professionalism, friendliness and warmth of the staff is refreshingly genuine. The rooms are always spotless. The management and staff are to be congratulated for their ability to maintain consistently high standards.
We love this hotel. Check in is a breeze, parking is ample and only about twenty minutes to Melbourne. The breakfast room in the Club Lounge is fantastic. The staff and chef are great too.

Keep up the great work.

We only stayed one night night here but I was very impressed with the cleanliness and the customer service of the staff. The rooms are modern and cheery and I I can't say we ever heard any other guests. So if you want to ensure you have a clean and comfortable room then this accommodation will suit you well.

Thank you for your response.

We have recently undertaken a $8 mil upgrade and renovation process to our 58 room accommodation, gym and pool complex.

It is pleasing to know that our hard work is being rewarded.

Further upgrades are planned to some function rooms and our gaming lounge lobby.

We are also in the process of updating our menu and offer value for money quality meals with where possible local (Australian) produce.

And soon the hotel will be offering a loyalty member programm.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

We stayed one night in January 2012 to attend a wedding at Witchmount Estate.
Pros: The location was good for us, being easy to find and get to from the airport, close to shopping centre(s) and not too far from the wedding venue. Accommodation was clean, tidy and modern.
Cons: Our ground floor room was disabled access - not good if you do not require this. There was no shower screen (only a curtain) and water did not fall to the drain so water ran everywhere. We had to put towels down to stop the water covering the whole floor. The mirrored cupboard in the bathroom was too thin to put a toilet bag in and there was no bathroom vanity cupboard to sit our toileteries on. The lighting in the bathroom and the room itself was extremely poor (forget trying to see to put makeup on). You could hear the doors banging from other rooms as people came and went due to the hallway design.
Odd: A bookshelf full of books that were glued in with a sign requesting guests not try to remove the books from the bookshelf.

Room Tip: Avoid a disabled access room, especially near the breakfast cafe.

Thank you for your comments.

I am sorry to hear that you were allocated a disabled room. These rooms will generally not be allocated unless requested and unless the hotel is fully booked.

I will make sure that the staff in future will advise hotel guests of this situation.

Not sure why you would stay at Taylors Lakes but this hotel is now a great reason to do it. The rooms combine style and practicality to provide a comfortable and elegant environment. There is no bath, but the design and fittings of the bathroom meet every need. Tasteful decor with quirky touches make the room a pleasure to spend time in. There lack of mini bar is a saviour for my waistline and my pocket. The onsite restaurant located in the hotel offers excellent fare and room service, at very reasonable prices and the located is next to a shopping centre offering small stores and a supermarket as well as takeaway options. The onsite gym is perhaps the best I have ever used anywhere in the world, and offers state of the equipment with an indoor pool and extensive hours of operation. This hotel gives 5-star CBD hotels a real run for its money and would beat many hands down. This really has been an amazingly comfortable hotel to spend a week in and I couldnt recommend it highly enough. Service and staff are top class. In summary this has been a surprise and a total pleasure of a hotel, suburban accommodation operators should take notes, this is how it should be done. I look forward to coming back again.
