Punthill Essendon Grand Apartments
Reviewed May 30, 2010

Do not stay here if you are young. I was behind two old couples when checking in and they were treated like kings. However I was treated like a 14 year old school kid when I checked in (I am a 23 year old accountant). It was a bad start to my experience, a big no no for customer service. The room was nice, stayed in a studio, although the shower wasn't the best. I've stayed in a lot better rooms for the price.

Stayed: May 2010, traveled as a couple

Stayed here with my son for 2 nights whilst visting family. Had initially booked into a studio room, but was talked into upgrading to a one bedroom apartment for $20 more. Best money ever spent. Not that there was anything wrong with the studios, but for $20, was defietely worth it. The apartment had plenty of room and was surprisingly quiet considerring that is located on a main road. I hadn't slept that well for ages.
The cafe downstairs was fine and had plenty of other cafes, pubs in the vicinity. Would definetely stay again on next visit.

I have stayed here on several trip home to Melbourne. I know the area well and this is in the best location with shops of all kinds across the road. There is a great bar on the ground floor and shops within 2 minutes. The rooms are modern and spotless and great size. Everything you could wish for is there! The staff are friendly and helpful- nothing a bother to them. The tram stop is out the front, airport 10 mins and the city again 10 mins away. Would suggest this the best place to stay...location, shops, the lot...go and stay at this wonderful apartment hotel! Can highly recommend the BEST pizza shop next door and chinese restaurant 2 mins up the road, and a bakery opposite with yummy cakes and wonderful meat pies. Enjoy.

We were staying @ Punt Hill Essendon for easy access to Essendon Airport for 15 days while doing work on EMS aircraft. Was a wonderful departure from the normal hotels we usually stay in. The restraunt connected to the apartments was a great dining experience as well as the Indian restraunt up the street. Would hightly reccomment for any and all travellers.

The room was nice and had a balcony, but both were very tiny. The balcony was like a cage, so you coulnd't see anything unless you stood on a chair. Not bad for the price I guess.

We stayed in Punt Hill Essendon with my husband's parents in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment for 6 days, and it was perfect and cosy for us. The apartments are quite new (although the parking entry and exit was interesting - there was a traffic light system), although has only 1 lift, which wasn't really a big problem. A large trolley was provided at the lifts for us to take our luggage to our room. Our apartment was not too small but not large either, but the rooms was nice and clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable (this can be a big problem if it isn't). Although the couches were getting a little tatty (and a lot of yuk was found under the cushions) it was OK. We did notice a hanging curry smell everytime we entered the apartment though.

Overall we enjoyed our stay - we had a car so getting around was fine for us. Our room was serviced daily and clean towels and sheets provided. Staff were friendly. We would recommend this place if you don't need to be right in the heart of hte city. It is in the heart of Essendon and we didn't even get any traffic noise throughout our stay. very conveniently located across the road from coles, bakeries, banks, shops and cafes/restaurants.

Stayed for 2 nights here and thought it was a lovely room. Would recomend it, though it wasn't cheap nor too expensive! Would certainly use it again if I'm ever in the Melbourne area.

It was exactly what we required, very tidy and well looked after.

Even had nice, though strange meal there!
