“Great Central Location”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We spent 3 nights here, and really enjoyed our stay. The room was very comfortable and quite, so sleep was great. It was also centrally located, either to catch the different tour buses or just to walk to what you wanted to see. The Staff was very helpful answering questions about where to go and what to do. Would recommend this to my friends.

Room Tip: Make sure you take time to visit the Parliament while you are there, it is wonderful.

Booked three nights believing the rooms were of good size, those on level six a very small ,room for the bed and not much more . No living area.
For the money paid - not value for money.
Reasonable location

Dear Andrew W,

Thank you for your recent review.

It's disappointing to read that you did not find your room at the Crossley value for money and found it to be small in size. Perhaps next time you stay you would considering staying in one of our Superior Rooms or Apartments? You may find this more suited to your needs as they come with a living space, including a kitchenette, dining area and couch for your comfort.

I would like to thank you again for your review and hope you will consider the Crossley Hotel again on your next visit to Melbourne.

Regards,

Good comfortable hotel handy for Melbourne CBD. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The noise from the restaurants late at night was disturbing as was the refuse collectors at 4.00am Sunday morning. Don't bother with the breakfast, it is a rip off and there are plenty of lovely, reasonably priced cafes serving great food close by. The free Internet was a bonus that not many hotels offer.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms that face the lane way that runs parallel with Little Collins Street

I made a last-minute decision to visit family in Melbourne, and to my surprise my first hotel options were booked out ... mid week and winter? Realised on arrival in Melbourne that the British & Irish Lions supporters were in town ... Luckily my decision to stay at the Crossley worked well. Great location, walk to everything in the CBD and close to every imaginable food and transport option. Will definately stay here again. Only minor gripe was my bed was a little toooo firm! Very friendly and efficient staff, free internet was a BIG bonus, and being a smoker having a room on the 3rd floor with the smoking terrace saved my sanity with my first coffee hit of the day!!! All round good hotel.

Room Tip: Third floor room if you want to duck out in your PJs for a ciggie on the terrace ... designated area...

We chose this hotel for its location. At the top end of China Town, the location worked well for us as we were going to the theatre, and earlier, wandering the streets. A little trickey to get to by car though. We had a generous sized room, on level 1. We found it to be very clean, comfortable and quiet with good amenties.
The only small negative...we had paid an extra $10 when booking online, adding a continental breakfast. At checkout this was challenged. Lucky we had the paper work on us. Also, hotel does not have foxtel.

Dear ChristineB55Geelong,

Thank you for your recent review.

It's great to read you enjoyed the location of the hotel, you are certainly right it is near by to all of Melbourne's Theatres. I'm pleased you found the rooms comfortable, clean and quiet. I will pass your comments on to the housekeeping manager and his team, as they work very hard to keep the rooms at a high standard, so he will be happy to hear this.

I apologise for the confusion with your pre-paid continental breakfast, I will use your feedback at our next team meeting to ensure this type of thing does not happen again.

Once again I appreciate you taking the time to write a review and I look forward in being able to welcome you back to the Crossley on your next visit to Melbourne.

Very friendly check in. Asked for a quiet room and was given one (505). Room was clean and very well presented. An added plus was a TV with a large screen. Free internet. No problems what so ever. Would definitely stay there again.
