“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I arrived very late at night on a flight from Hong Kong. I had never stayed at Melbourne airport before and, being alone, was rather apprehensive about how I'd find the hotel and what it would be like. But it's so easy to locacte. Just exit from the international terminal and it's right across the road and a little to your right.

Staff were efficient and I was in my room in minutes. I'd booked for one person but was given a huge room which could have accomodated a family of four. Very clean, modern and well furnished. It faced onto a parking lot but I did not hear a thing. As the room was at the end of a corridor it was one of the quietest hotels I've stayed in. So if you want a quiete room ask for one facing the parking lot at the end of the corridor.

Check out was fast. And I was back in the airport for my connecting flight in minutes and using the free wifi in the airport.

We stayed for one night before an early flight to China. We were in Melbourne for the footy and rather than travel home to Geelong (approx 1 hour trip) and back again early the next morning we decided to spend the night at the Parkroyal.

We parked our car in the long term car park and caught the bus to the terminal. We then walked across the bridge to the short term car park and caught the lift to the hotel. Could not be easier.

I booked a bed and breakfast package with a standard room for $280 directly on the hotel website. When we arrived the reception clerk who checked us in told us he upgraded our room category twice to a deluxe?? I think, which was appreciated. It is always nice to get an unexpected upgrade.

Room was on the 9th floor facing the runway and and although we at times "felt" the rumble of the jet engines it was surprisingly quiet.

King bed was comfortable and room was clean and had all the necessary amenities, including tea and coffee making gear.

Bathroom was spacious with separate bath and large shower.

The carpet in the corridors was a bit worn but the room had new carpet and the furniture was all in good condition.

In the morning we took our check in bags over the bridge to the checkin counters and checked in and then returned to the hotel and had breakfast. It is great that you don't have to catch a shuttle bus - this airport hotel is actually at the airport which is awesome. It only takes a couple of minutes to walk to checkin. Buffet breakfast was perfectly adequate.

We returned to our room to freshen up and use the facilities before checking out and heading through immigration. The bill that had been placed under our door the night before was incorrect ($340) so I went down to reception and showed the clerk the confirmation that I had printed out and he apologised and amended it for me. We all make mistakes but I believe it is how they are handled that makes the difference and this was well handled so I went away happy.

Would definitely stay at the Parkroyal again if we have an early morning flight, it made the morning very unrushed and pleasant.

We arrived in Melbourne after almost 24 hours of travelling. It was seven in the morning and we were exhausted after the long flight. We decided to get some sleep before starting our holiday.
PARKROYAL was an excellent choice. We grabbed our baggage and didn`t have to walk more than 50 meters before inside the hotel.
Friendly staff, efficient checkin.
We were handed a sign to put on the doorknob that said "Late checkout, do not disturb" so we didn`t have to worry about maids knocking on the door just a few hours later.The curtains in the hotelroom were opaque and thick walls made it a almost totally soundproof room. Even though we went to sleep as most people wake up in the morning, there were no noise from adjacent rooms. We got six hours of deep sleep, and as we checked out we were more than ready to start our adventure in Australia. The best airport hotel I`ve ever stayed at.

Stayed there when travelling on to Sydney, nice greeting at reception, well looked after by the bar staff and the meal in the restaurant was really good. When we left I made a point of going over and thanking the chef and the kitchen staff. Good to just walk over to the airport in the morning. My pet hate, cheap toilet paper but would stay there again.

Booked this hotel through Qantas and was overall impressed with our 1 night stay. We were upgraded to a runway view room upon check in, which was smooth and quick. The beds in the deluxe rooms are Heaven sadly same can not be said for the pillows, they're like hell which is my only criticism of this hotel. If had another early morning flight would choose to stay here again

Room Tip: Runway view rooms are good

For an airport hotel, this one really exceeded my expectations. I only stayed one short night on a layover but it was easy enough to get to (signage to lead you from inside the airport), had no problems checking in, and then was very impressed with the room. Very clean, and quite nice! Roomy and had everything I looked for. When I went to plug in my phone by the night stand, I was again impressed that they had put in an extension from the outlet on the wall out past the nightstand for convenience (i.e. I didn't have to move furniture trying to plug in my phone, which happened to me other places in Australia). Little details like this make a difference to me. Didn't take advantage of the bar/lounge area because I arrived so late, but it did appear to be open and looked very nice.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone flying out of Melbourne or on a layover.

OK, it's an airport hotel and it does its job. Close to the terminal, it was easy to get to. I arrived tired after a long flight. Small mixup at check-in eventually sorted out. Room was fine, well maintained (although missing an iron) and quiet. The restaurant and bar were busy and lively. I had a cold beer at the bar and a decent enough club sandwich from the bar menu rather than bothering with the restaurant. As with the check-in people, service was efficient but not particularly friendly. Wi-fi is expensive at $20, the sort of thing that annoys overseas visitors (and locals like me). Overall, it was no better than the Holiday Inn nearby (where I stayed the week before) and more expensive. Probably will not stay again if other places are available.
