We took our son to Melbourne during the July school holidays to attend a scooter camp at The Shed Indoor Skate Park in Cranbourne. We wanted a central location in the CBD and found a very reasonable package for seven nights including buffet breakfast at the Crown Plaza.
We were very impressed with the ease in booking in to our room, the staff both friendly and courteous. Our room, although a bit small for three, was very clean and comfortable with a view of the pool. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever had the privilege of sleeping on in any hotel I've stayed.
Location was fantastic. Close to everything, and we were able to park our hire car very near the hotel. Lots of food, cafes and shops within walking distance and also the free tram that you can get on and off around the city centre.
The buffet breakfast was the highlight of our mornings. Nothing better than a hot cup of coffee to start your day, with a hearty breakfast. Great selection of food, made to order omlelette, which kept my husband going back for more. Friendly and attentive staff, who cleared tables quickly and attended to our every need.
It was a great pleasure for us to spend our week at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Melbourne, and we will definitely be back again next year.
