Thoroughly enjoyed our ten day stay in Docklands Executive Apt 1502. Hosts, Paul & Belinda went out of their way to ensure we were happy with everything.They were most generous in providing quality linens, tea, coffee, soap powders, cling wrap, alfoil etc etc. The Apt was spotless, well-appointed and comfortable, allowing us to relax and soak up the wonderful views through the glass walls. Will recommend to all prospective Melbourne stayers we meet. Jo & June

Big thankyou to Paul and Belinda for such a warm welcome and excellent service. The apartment was wonderful and in a great location. Five best friends had a great weekend and would not hesitate to come back again. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get away. Thanks again.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Docklands Executive Apartments. You cannot fault this apartment in any way - It is modern, clean with plenty of room and very inviting. Location is great just a short walk in to the bustle of the city or the option to catch the free tram across the road. Paul and Belinda were very friendly and helpful from the booking phase right until the end - so Thank You. I most certainly would stay here again and have already recommended this apartment to family and friends.

Thank you for your positive review, I totally agree with you that we are positioned in the best part of Docklands, within walking distance to the Crown Casino, the city centre as well as the waterfront restaurants. The free City Circle Tram does come in handy being positioned right outside the door of the apartments. Next time you would like to make a booking, all you need to do is either email or call us and we will definitely look after you, as well as your family and friends.

Apartment was awesome! The attention to detail and cleanliness was amazing. So close to everything. The check-in was so welcoming and quick, the Thai restaurant Paul recommended (Ginger Leaf) was best we have had. Definitely stay here again and recommend to all our West Aussie friends.

This is a great apartment in the Docklands area. Location is fantastic with a supermarket just 10 minutes walk away, the free city circle tram stops virtually outside the door and you can walk to the Harbour Town shopping centre and Docklands market. There are plenty of great cafes in the area (not all are open at the weekend) and very good restaurants too.
The apartment itself is in pristine condition with every convenience and a great view. Paul is very friendly and helpful and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend these apartments; we had a great time there.

Four work colleages and I chose to stay at Docklands Executive Apartments when attending a Conference in Melbourne last week. The apartments are perfectly located being a 10-12 minute walk from the Melb. Convention Centre and a quick tram ride up Collins St. to the city centre. The City Circle tram also stops very close by and within minutes it will have you at Harbour Town. Paul, our host, cannot be faulted for the superb service he provided. He ensured both our apartments were lovely and warm when we checked in at the end of a long first day in Melb., he suggested places for dinner, made our reservation and had arranged for two bottles of beautiful wine to be served with our meal. On our departure day Paul offered to investigate transport options to the airport and subsequently made the bookings. He was at the front door to farewell us as we left. There were many other small token gestures that Paul made to ensure our comfort at all times; he is a true professional. The two apartments that we were allocated were beautiful. Amazing views over the Docklands and the ceiling to floor windows in all rooms turned the vista into fairyland at night. Comfortable furnished balconies would provide a lovely spot to end a hot summer's day. Both apartments were decorated differently, but they were equally beautiful. The fittings are all top quality and very tasteful. The genuine care for the guests comfort can be seen in the nice large jars of coffee, tea and sugar (no sachets!), generous supplies of laundry detergent etc. Thank you Paul, for every thing you did for us last week.

Room Tip: The corner suites have amazing 180 deg views from the living room.

We find a lot of our guests like yourself love staying in our apartments, as they are so close to the Melbourne Convention Centre . It was a shame that your stay was work related and not for pleasure. Next time you decide to come to Melbourne, hopefully it will be for a holiday and we can have the pleasure of spoiling you again.

After a week in the snow with 3 kids, including 2 teenagers, we needed a spacious, centrally-located self catering apartment as a home away from home for 3 days to explore Melbourne. Based on the excellent trip advisor reviews, we chose Docklands Executive Apartments and our expectations were well and truly exceeded.

The personal touch and friendly attention from Paul was reassuring and helpful. Paul met us downstairs on arrival, helped us with our bags up to our apartment, as well as providing useful information and tips. Upon entering the apartment, we immediately felt at home, relaxed and comfortable after the long day's drive.

The two-bedroom apartment had everything we could need, with many thoughtful touches. We wanted to self-cater a number of our meals and the well-appointed kitchen made it easy doing so. The beds were comfy and the lounge and TV area spacious. The views from the apartment over the Docklands are were super, particularly the city lights at night.

A real plus was the free Melbourne City Circle tram service that passes right by the apartments which we used several times to shop in the city and nearby Harbour Town . Supermarkets are also within easy walking distance.

Special touches included making a booking for us to lunch at the nearby "Nine Elephants" Thai Restaurant and to gift us a superb bottle of red wine. Paul made us feel like truly welcome guests.

We will certainly stay with Paul and Belinda again and can highly recommend their high standard of service and superior accommodation.
