Initially I selected this hostel as it was on the way from the airport to the city. The brand has good reputation, and is in perfect location for travellers arriving late at night I had booking for a friday and it happen that I arrived one day earlier, around 11pm. Hoping to arrange an extra night in the hotel I... More

Met business friends for dinner. Would have to be the worst meal that I have ever had at a motel restaurant. Would not recommend. Had the Currie special 3 pieces of meat,that were cold. Sauce ok,got a replacement meal, not much better. Other meals not much better. Very ordinary.

Best Western in Mount Alexander Road Essendon can be recommended. It's not the Ritz, but it is clean and tidy with appropriate amenities. Car parking is available,it's about 20 minuted by car to the city. The Essendon Train Station is about 10 minutes walk from the motel. You can't miss the Best Western Alexander. It's best to make a booking,... More

Loved that they had put on the heater to warm our room on arrival, as we didn't get there till 10pm. Simple room. The bed was a bit soft for our liking but comfy and warm. The room and the bathroom were very clean. We ordered a cooked breakfast which was Ok. We were up the back of the Motel... More

A great place to stay for a short stay. Easy access to Melbourne CBD. easy walking distance to nearby quality restaurants and transport hubs. Room a little small but very clean and comfortable. Good internet access and the staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant is good and the cuisine excellent.

The staff services are good but this hotel really required a full renovation. The room looks old, noise insulation is very bad, the continental breakfast is all from the foods you can buy from the grocer stores. Not even one dish is cooked food. WIFI was so bad until I can't connect and use at all. Not going back!

An older style Motel with rooms which are quite small but well laid out and clean. Restaurant attached to venue which serves a good meal. This is a simple good value clean venue with good service. Great access to freeway for Airport or city and on a tram route too.

Room served its purpose overnight but wasn't large. Too cramped as a family room for anything more than the single night imho. Service was pleasant and friendly. It was Reasonable value and the location offered an easy find coming into Melb and an easy escape going out.

After a hair raising drive in to Melbourne, we were greeted warmly at reception by Tara. We checked in and got to our room, an added bonus was free parking outside our room. Although it needs a bit of a facelift it was a comfortable room and suited our needs, we also were provided with free wifi. There was a... More
