My partner and I stayed here at the Seasons Heritage from 21 September to the 26th.
From the Tullamarine airport we took the Skybus to the Southern Cross depot ($17 per person, one way) that took around 30 minutes, which is cheaper than a taxi. After a train ride to Flinders Station from Southern Cross we took the tram to our hotel where it stops directly outside – very handy!
The hotel reception area is gorgeous and the heritage home itself is connected to its tower that houses the rooms. The staff were helpful upon arrival and throughout our stay. Our room had a small view of the beach and park, the bed was pretty hard and by day 3 our backs were killing us. The bathroom is big but could do with a shower door because the whole floor, including the toilet ends up getting pretty wet.
We only had breakfast once at the hotel (only because we were too hung over to make it out the door) and weren’t too impressed. My scrambled eggs were really watery and my partners’ poached eggs were fully hard boiled, I also think the menu is a bit overpriced for what they have to offer. I think for value and quality you are better off enjoying the culinary delights of what Melbourne restaurants and cafes have to offer.
The location of the hotel is perfect, it is directly opposite the Belgian Beer Café (great place for nibbles and drinks) and trams are directly outside and come and go every 10 minutes. I recommend you know where you are going and what tram numbers you need to get there before jumping on these – but if getting lost is your thing then jump on any and you’ll be amazed where you end up.
I was happy with the cost; we got a cosy, modern room with separate bath, kitchen, lounge and bedroom. You do need to be careful with the shower head (as mentioned in other reviews) - regardless of pressure it will end up wetting most of the bathroom floor and toilet - get extra towels because you will be cleaning this up after every shower. There was an odd smell that lingered through the hallways and after a day we assumed it came from the wall mounted trash chute located by the elevators but the nasty smell never came through to the rooms.
