Low rise hotel with an outdoor pool in the middle of Melbourne! Unheard of you say? Well you would be wrong as the Bayview On the Park is just such a hotel. Across the road from Albert Park (famous for the Grand Prix), close to tram lines and galleries, the sth melbourne precinct well known for good eateries, entertainging night life and the compact and charming Sth Melb market. The hotel has a nice vibe and after the initial slightly stiff but adaptable check-in (we were 3 hrs early!) we experienced extremely friendly and helpful staff.
The outdoor pool was a must for us. Pool itself is well laid out but needs maintenance with missing tiles; Missed not having an outdoor rinsing shower, change rooms or toilets; only access to pool was through the foyer area which was slightly uncomfortable; Pool gates although beautiful are a nuisance with a latch postioned way too high even for a tallish adult and they gave a loud clang if not held while shutting.
Room was great. Initially I had been going to book the basic twin room but after reading the hotel description decided on the superior Twin which was a great size with a nice window overlooking the park (also the busy road but you can barely hear the traffic).
Family friendly, $10 undercover parking, average breakfast.
If brekky isn't included treat yourself at the Sth Melb market to a delectable coffee at PADRE Hand crafted coffee house and heavenly bakery smells
Will stay again!
