Many airport hotels are pretty ordinary but this one is not - it's very good! You reach it by walking across from the airport or use the airbridge. The reception staff were very helpful and our room, though lacking a view - but what would you expect at an airport! - was nicely appointed and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant and bar area was pleasant and the food was excellent and well priced. We will be back to use it next time we are in transit through Melbourne.
