Good service, gets all the basics right - kettle, towel change, soaps, cleanliness to name a few. Nice location for those not looking to stay in the CBD - beautiful gardens and houses around. Except for some issues with hot water it was a good experience.

Room was a good wee studio with microwave. Beds comfy and very helpful, attentive staff. Place was clean and towels changed everyday which was an added bonus. As many have noted, the hot water tends to run out but warms up again after 15mins or so, and this is very well posted in the apartment, so we were prepared and... More

Pleasant apartments coveniently situated for the tram stop 2 minutes walk away. Cleanlines very good, no signs of dust in any of the places I always look to check the quality of the cleaning(ex-hotel worker!). The kitchen is adequately equipped for doing breakfast or snacks, or warming something up in the microwave. The internet was a bit dodgy sometimes, but... More

This hotel was easy to get to, nice quiet location just 10 minutes walk from the CBD, off street parking, reception was very friendly, rooms were decent size and clean, pretty basic bathroom and kitchen but everything worked, great price for our whole group for 2 nights! Would stay again!

This hotel is situated in east Melbourne, It has loads of "old" buildings. It is walking distance to Cook Cottage. You can walk or take a tram from this apartment. The service apartment had a lovely and helpful receptionist. The rooms were great and we had no issues. The parking is a little tricky if you driving a big car... More

My family and i booked here because of the close proximity to the MCG as we traveled from the country and were going to the footy. As i said..its clean and has all the usual things most accommodation offers these days. The only negative is the parking...if you have a 4wd or large car you would not be able to... More
