We were surprised by how nice the rooms are. The outside isn't much to look at but the rooms are perfectly comfortable. Fantastic location for lygon street. A bit of a walk to trams. Showers are awesome too.

The bed was firm but very comfortable and pillows were good quality. The room had an iron and ironing board. The full...

The good points of this hotel is that the rooms are spacious and quiet and the bed is comfortable although the pillows were quite hard. There is onsite parking and there is a pool which looks quite nice. I was staying here on my own as I was working so I was hoping for a quick meal and bed. I...

We booked 2 mths ago, I had a Deluxe twin room, by the Moomba Weekend rooms were quite expensive. 1 Night away..... Rooms were spotless! Air con worked great, quite muggy, over looked the pool.

My husband and I spent one evening in a spa room located on the 1st floor overlooking Victoria Lake. Beautiful outlook, however the outside temperature was 38+ so we keep the lovely heavy curtains closed the majority of the time to block out the hot afternoon sun. Well appointed, clean and spacious room. Plenty of clothes hangers in the wardrobe...

Our room was on the ground floor just metres from a small central swimming pool and courtyard area. the room was refurbished and of a very good standard. Our room also had a window onto the road which I thought would...

Friendly hotel in excellent location. Visit Melbourne frequently for work and this hotel makes being away from home easy. Parking available. Breakfast good. Rooms comfortable and staff friendly and professional. And in a great part of Melbourne.

All in all a good experience with all that I would expect in the standard of accommodation (unlike a recent stay at Best Western - Launceston) with friendly and attentive staff. Trouble with connecting to wifi through hotel's third party provider; which isn't the first time with that provider. Easy walking distance to parkland and the Muesum. Good tram service...

Neighborhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighborhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
