“Renovated rooms look good - reasonable value at the airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2010

The hotel is located close to the airport - there is a free shuttle to the hotel (but a "nominal fee" back), but we walked both ways due to having small luggage. You can walk through the rental car garage or along the front of the airport building. The check-in was efficient if a little cold. The room was great - comfy bed and new furniture. This is an old hotel but they have done the best they can with the rooms. We needed one more chair in the room as it was for two people. The view was good as we could see planes landing (but no noise). As Priority Club members we got a bottle of water, newspaper and late checkout if we wanted. Overall this is a pleasant hotel. Not quite as convenient as the Hilton and not quite as new, but much better value.

Renovated rooms were really lovely no noise from airport. free shuttle to airport only couple of minutes away could walk if wanted to but not with luggage. staff lovely only down side was price of food but you can go to airport for a meal or if with teens Mcdonalds accross the road.
Definitely stay there again but not hire a car traffic a pain especially if avoiding the toll roads. Will use skybus next time. Melbourne zoo was great nice and flat and easy to get around.

We booked this hotel for one night as we were flying into Melbourne from the UK and then were flying to Brisbane early the next day.
Plus Points:
- Only a few minutes walk from the domestic and international terminals - having been flying for 24hours, this was greatly appreciated! The hotel also runs a free shuttle bus to pick guests up (although unless you have lots of baggage it is probably just as quick to walk). It took us less than an hour from when the plane landed to getting to bed.
- Very clean, comfortable and modern room.
- Very helpful staff on reception
- Despite being right at the airport, we were not disturbed by the planes.
Negative Points (Generally very minor)
- Fairly expensive, although this was probably due to the strength of the Aussie dollar, rather than to do with the hotel.
- The bathroom was slightly dated.

Overall we were extremely impressed with this hotel. It offered a decent night's sleep, minutes from the terminal and was very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

Then this might be OK. It's clean and easily accessible from the airport. The building is clearly dated & could use an update all around. Housekeeping didn't replace used cups, although they did bring up fresh cups when requested. Internet is VERY expensive if you want access other than the business center. Also, one of the worst fitness rooms/gyms I've seen. Of 2 treadmills, one was broken & the other had problems with the speed controls. There was a sign for a recumbent bike, yet no recumbent bike was available. That was very disappointing for a hotel in this price range. However, staff were ultimately very helpful in resolving a billing problem.

We stayed over night at this hotel due to an early morning departure, there were 5 of us so we booked 2 rooms, they were sensational, extremely clean & roomy. The beds so comfy none of us wanted to leave them & super quiet double glazed windows. The "take in meals" were delicious, very filling & reasonable in price, macca's is just across the road which was also great for the children. The staff were very helpful & super friendly & professional. Fabulous hotel, a real crdit to the staff & the hotel chain! Highly recommended!

...to the airport. We had a very early flight and decided to stay in a hotel near the airport. It was only a 5 minute walk to the Holiday Inn. The room was very nice, quite big and clean. We didn't hear anything from the airport. Since we had a few problems with our flight we asked the staff for help. They were very nice and helpful.

Good hotel if you're stopping overnight but not much else around. Rooms were basic but clean and a good size. They had the soft or hard pillow option which was great.

I would suggest eating at the Hilton if you want something a bit more sophisticated. Our meals at the Holiday Inn were pretty basic. Macdonald's is across the road if you want a quick takeaway.

Walkable from the airport or they have a courtesy bus.
