We had booked and paid for a night here prior to setting out on a 4.5 month overseas holiday. My husband subsequently took ill and our trip was postponed 3 weeks. Our booking was noted as non-refundable or changeable, but on learning of our predicament, management was happy to change our booking at no charge. The hotel itself is basic,...

Early morning flight, so wanted something cheap within walking distance to the airport. Check in was quick and friendly. The room was small, but had plenty in there with a sink in the main room, a desk with tea and coffee making facilities, a mini bar fridg, a TV, aircon and a double bed. The toilet and shower were a...

Easy to find and staff very helpful at Check-in and again in the morning. Really helpful re airport facilities. Their directions were clear and saved me time. I would stay again if needing an overnight stay prior to early morning travel.

ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED We have booked into @Ibis budget melbourne airport, upon traveling all afternoon to get here, settling into our room, having a quick dinner , then tried to have a hot shower! After waiting for what seemed ages for the hot water to come through, my husband went downstairs to see what was going on with it. He came...

I know it was just a pragmatic stay prior to an early flight. The foyer is dirty and disorganized. The chap at the desk was bored and dissevelled. OK it is not a luxury hotel and the customers will frequently be once only. The room was small no carpet cold uncomfortable. No wifi despite being given a code. Poor poor...

We stayed at this hotel for one night to allow for a easy connection for a next day international flight. The hotel is a easy flat one kilometer walk from the domestic terminal. The room was quite small as expected but clean, quiet and well laid out, except the hand basin is situated within the room and not the bathroom....

Stayed at the Ibis Melbourne Airport between late and early flights. Initially a little difficult to locate after arriving at terminal 4 (tip; either head towards BP or just keep walking until terminal 1 where you'll find the signs). Check in was super quick, the lovely gent there had some handy info on where to get food, surprisingly two places...

The main attraction of this hotel is that it is walking distance of Melbourne Airport. It is however an ex Formule 1 style hotel so resembles a lot of prefabricated units stacked on top of one another with few frills. The bedroom we had had two single beds with a third bed bunk style above the two main beds, but...

Was a bit hard to find in the dark (it's behind the McDonald's restaurant). Only a 5-10 min walk from the airport. Small but clean and modern room. Has a TV and tea/coffee making which was great. Very small bathroom cubicle but is adequate for a short stay. Great price for this hotel. We had a very late check-in which...
