Many reviews of this apartment sound similar... with good reason - I'd suppose it's due to the fact that this is an ideal location, for exploring Melbourne either on foot or by tram. It represents excellent value. The presentation/cleanliness was outstanding. Yes, I admit, I actually inspected the cups and glassware to ensure they had been thoroughly cleaned. I also... More

Communication was great and Paul met us on arrival and gave us great advice based on his local knowledge. The apartment is fantastic, it is spacious, well appointed,... More

Docklands Executive Apartments is a first rate place to stay. We always prefer an apartment so we can choose when to cook and when to eat out. This was our first stay down in Docklands - we have previously stayed either in Southbank or in the heart of melbourne CBD. Location is great because the tram just takes you into... More

Loved our apartment. Only two of us but we enjoy our independence *didn't want a hotel and we love space. The apartment was ideal. Right near the free tram system which, even as country folk, we worked out quickly. Only 5 mins to town. Did use a taxi from Crowne one night, $12. Lots of help from Paul, recommendations for...

This is the second time we've stayed at these apartments and it hasn't disappointed once again. The apartment is well appointed, very clean and in a perfect location. Will certainly return again soon.

We had an amazing apartment on the 15th Floor, on the corner of the building with views to die for right out across Docklands and opposite Etihad stadium. Beautifully appointed, great Kitchen and lounge. Very welcoming hosts. From a negative point of view, the appt could have done with instructions on how to use the Television set up and Radio...

Great location in spacious apartment with quality furnishings. Everything supplied and easy to live in. Had problems getting checked in but the apology was genuine-including the dinner and wine to make amends for the inconvenience. Definitely stay again

This was our first time staying in Docklands but I don't think it will be our last. We had a rather unique experience taking our parents in their mid-70's over to Victoria for the Royal Military Edinburgh Tattoo...Paul will know exactly who I am! And what can I say, the accommodation was superb in all the ways previously mentioned but... More
