“Great quality apartment and location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Very impressive 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment (not always easy to find). Stylish decor, all we needed for a comfortable stay in very clean beds and rooms. Generous tea/coffee supplies, toiletries etc. Plenty of crockery items too. Very convenient to free tram, and No 70 tram to tennis or MCG. Etihad stadium almost next door. Close to Collins and Bourke Streets, Southern Cross Station, Docklands area. Personal greeting on arrival by Paul was very appreciated by our group. We look forward to returning. Thank you Paul.

This was a home away from home, everything we needed was on hand. The apartment was well equipped and very comfortable for our 5 night stay in Melbourne. The location was great as we were able to walk most places, if not the trams run right past the front door if you wish to explore further. The hospitality was exceptional and I would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that the apartment felt like a home away from home. One of the benefits of staying in an apartment is that you have all the facilities of a private residence with plenty of space for the family. We hope to welcome you back to Melbourne in the near future!

We stayed 4 nights and everyone was so pleased with the apartment. It was way better than we had envisaged. Apartment was very well appointed with everything you need from appliances to cutlery/ crockery. The beds were very comfortable with each bedroom having a ensuite bathroom. The location was great for the docklands area and easy access to the CBD. The tourist tram passes right outside. Lots of eateries nearby and a small convenience store near the entrance. A direct factory outlet shopping mall across the bridge and a nearby Safeway and lots mire. The management were very helpful, they contacted us on our arrival in Melbourne, met us at the entrance and guided us to our allotted parking space and even helped us with our luggage to the apartment. All in all a very enjoyable visit and would definitely stay again if in Melbourne. Will be recommending to our family and friends.

Thank you so much for your feedback and we were thrilled that you found the apartment better than you had envisaged. There are so many benefits of staying in a self catering apartment, as it feels more like a home away from home, with all the benefits of city living. As you mentioned our location is fabulous being so close to the CBD, with easy access to the free City Circle Tram. We will look forward to another opportunity to host you at our property in the near future.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and it was beautifully furnished and designed.
Everything and anything we needed were at our fingertips.
Great location, great services avaliable; especially the gym and the pool.
Very well kept and i recommend this accomodation to anyone who wants to stay close enough to melbourne city without all the noise. Great location to resturants and public transport. Great views.
We were personally met by the owner Belinda and she explained what was avaliable to us.
One of my highlights of travelling.
Absolutely stunning!

We greatly appreciate your response about your stay with us in 2010. We are glad you didn’t forget us and we will look forward to your next visit. Unfortunately since your were last here, access to the pool and gym is now no longer available to short term guests, due to health and safety reasons. However we have a gym across the road for guests that require that facility.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment that was just beautiful. Extremely clean and beautifully decorated with everything that you would ever need. Location was brilliant with easy access to everything. The hospitality was fantastic and very professional. Would definately stay there again.
Great for business or pleasure . Would also recommend eating at a great Thai Restuarant (the nine elephants) which is very close. Thanks again will definately be back !

All the other comments cover the detail, I would just like to add that having just returned home to the UK after 7 weeks in touring Eastern Australia staying in some beautiful accommodation on the way it was when we got to Melbourne and stayed in the Docklands Executive Apartments we realised what quality, service and class was all about.
