Who ever said a photograph doesn't lie? The website Pic's looked great. Listed as a boutique hotel I would be more inclined to call it novel. The Bistro was not operational at the time of my stay so essentially it was a bed, shower and a place to change kind of stop. My room was quiet however the whole neighbourhood was very quiet of an evening so I moved into the city.

the place was clean, tidy and conveniently located for a short stroll to train station, the local market (a beauty!!!) and some pretty cool cafe's etc.

road noise was a problem in our room, ask for a room on the right side of the hallway should be quieter and better.

our aircon wasn't usable as the remote was broken, we tried to contact the owners to fix with no response which was a little disappointing.

the other options in footscray are really terrible so i think this place is better than those.
its probably also overpriced, really should be $90-$100 a night but again, theres no competition so.... ... ...

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the main road...

I went to Melbourne for the tennis but the city was booked out so I stayed here and tbh I had a better time than i thought.
Its food was ok if you like pizza, the area seemed a little rough and it was a bit away from the city but there was a train station locally and I do like pizza.
I found it reasonable and the staff were pretty cool..probably would'nt stay there again but I enjoyed it at the time.

Nice place to stay if you get a good rate.. I would suggest it is like a nice motel that is comfortable and clear with the bonus of having a nice place to eat downstairs...

Inept manager who knows only how to charge one more night's room fee, but doesn't care about losing a long term customer.

My husband has stayed at this hotel 6 days almost every month for business for past 3 years. Yesterday, he attempted to check out at 10:45am, but had to pay one additional night because he didn't advise the counter the day before. The manager said the hotel had got fully booked and she already turned down availability enquiries for that day, so she had to charge for that day.

The point is, if the hotel is fully booked and customers still keep calling in, would there be a high chance that the room could be resold?

My husband will never return to this hotel.

If I was the owner of this hotel, I would fire this manager. In today's competative environment, if the manager does not know how to balance hotel's short term and long term benefit, does not know how to smooth out conflicts of interest between customers and hotel, she would only achieve an all lose situation - the customer loses the room charge, the hotel loses a long term customer, its long term income, and its hardly-established reputation.
