First impression was how vast the hotel is and probably specialises in catering for businessmen. But we were very happy with our experience there. We only had one afternoon and evening in Melbourne before catching the Overland train to Adelaide the following day and the station was a 10-minute walk away. Reception were friendly and helpful - even offered us a bottle of wine to help us celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary - and the room was very satisfactory, clean and comfortable. The view wasn't great (overlooking roofs) but we didn't come to Melbourne for a view, and weren't there long, so this didn't matter. They were also extremely helpful in the restaurant, when I asked if I might help myself to some breakfast stuff (before their opening time), as we had to be at the station by 7am and my husband is diabetic - we'd paid for B&B; the young lady I spoke to even went away and came back with plastic containers, for which I was most grateful. Real service with a smile.
