“Afl Grand Final.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Travelled from Perth for the AFL grand final this year (2013). This hotel was perfect. Great size room for 2 people. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Break fast was great and prepared fresh. Didn't really notice the road noise. The tram stop is on the front door, so easy to get to the city. The great restaurants of Fitzroy are only a few stops away. Will certainly be back.

My partner and i stayed there recently and contracted scabies from the room we occupied...My partner has had 2 separate opinions who both confirmed our worst fears being reality. Totally disgusted by this experience.
The housemaids need to be educated on how to clean a room thoroughly, so this never happens to anyone again....
Overall the room appeared clean but the pillows were extremely uncomfortable...Felt like we were sleeping on rocks....
The owner was polite, but what makes me laugh about this situation is, he has strict guidelines in place for not smoking in the rooms, but what policies are in place to protect a paying patron from exposure of diseases?..
The rooms need to be fumigated...

Next time you stay at a Motel or Hotel, think about our experience and be very careful. We will be taking our own linen and blankets and a can of surface spray.

Easy to find from Melbourne Airport - if you're travelling by car - and right on a city-bound tram line for easy access to Central Melbourne. The rooms are comfortable, generally quiet, and the staff is friendly and helpful On-site parking is good and there are plenty of reasonable restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: I found the staff helpful when I tried to navigate Melbourne's public transport system. They sol...

I found this hotel as I was going to a gig in the nearby Northcote Social Club.

The rooms were big and the bed comfy. I stayed for breakfast too which was really nice and freshly cooked.

Despite advice on tripadvisor to the contrary I took a ground floor room and the traffic which started at about 4.30am was very noisy (which is why I've only scored the place as 3/5). I'd really recommend getting a room away from the road.

Apart from that though I can't really fault the place. It's right on a tram line, so easy to get into the city and in a nice (albeit shabby-chique) part of the City.

The staff on the front desk were friendly and helped me with directions and gave me a tram map. Nicer than a boring 'chain' hotel in the city.

Room Tip: don't have a downstairs room on the road

This was a great little find as we were attending a wedding reception five minues away. A number of Sydney people stayed here and the rooms were very clean and very comfortable. The hospitality shown by the Inn Keeper Joe was exceptional. Breakfast was great. It was a terrific location having the tram nearly at the door and so close to Fitroy and the city. Would highly recommend this hotel and staff.

Great place to stay near the city- good access to transport and friendly, accommodating staff. Best to have a room that is not facing the road and, if you have heavy bags, one on the ground floor! Great assistance from Michael.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are best for access with luggage.

The location of this Motel is good for the price paid and is right next to a tram stop which is handy for the city.
Very impressed with how quiet it was considering its location next to a busy road, however our room was one away from the road so that made a difference.
Only on our last night were we disturbed by inconsiderate guests slamming doors, as is nearly always the case.
The furniture has seen better days but that doesn't detract.
The rooms are large but a bit on the dark side.
