“Not bad for the price!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

This hotel was probably great in the 1980s but is now in need of a compete refurb. However considering we paid less than $100 per night it was very good value for money. Avoid room 312. It is beside the chambermaids quarters and very noisy.

Pros:

Friendly staff
Responsive room service


Cons:
Very noisy from other guests/ buzzers and slamming doors
Can't get temp on shower taps stable - very annoying. Low pressure from shower
Dated decor
Linen starting to age
No shower gel

Overall still a good stay and very affordable.

This may not be the most modern of hotels but it is very cost effective and convenient. Rooms are very clean and staff very helpful and friendly. Car parking on site for small charge, restaurant and room service of good quality food and very reasonable prices. Down side is shower in the bath. Easy access to tram a block away or grab a taxi at the door to city, cheaper than city parking by half.

Room Tip: Rooms on Albert park side and higher floors have great views

Only thing missing from this hotel was that there is no deck, that would have made it 5/5 for me. Room was big and comfortable and meals well priced and yummy! Staff in the hotel are very helpful and friendly.

We parked our car in the car park and left it there for our stay as is there a team stop about a block behind the hotel.

The Bayview On The Park hotel is very out-dated...That was my first impression when walking into the foyer. Upon entering my room, it was clear that it was in need of some renovating. Although dated, the room was very clean and immaculate (credit to the cleaners of this hotel). The hotel overall was very clean. It just needs a modern touch. The location is perfect. Directly opposite Albert Park Lake, great for taking a walk or going for a run. Make your way to St Kilda Rd (a block away) and you have Tram access to the city (around 10-15 mins) or head the other way to St Kilda (8 mins).
Overall, I was very pleased with this hotel. The positives certainly outweighed the negatives. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I had dinner at Sails (the restaurant) and I must say I was very impressed. The quality and servings were unexpected. My wife and I tried the Breakfast one morning and this was lacking in variety. If you're after a good brekky, I suggest heading into the city.

This weekend away was given to us as a gift ( which was a very llovely gift) but... The room was dusty and when I asked it to be cleaned they apparently came and did it whilst we were out yet the bed side table bottom shelves were still at least a centimeter deep in dust! There was mould in shower, shower curtain smelt of mould and the whole place was very out dated! Breakfast was lovely tho! On the monday after weekend I checked my bank account the hotel had taken 2 transactions 1 being payment on.checkout and the other on arrival?????? Who knows what this is for???? I was NOT told about this nor did I give permission for them to do so! Apparently its a charge and they refund it by the end of the week!! Very strange! Parking is ludicrous $12 to park your own car in the car park at front which always had spaces free! A little rich I thought! Our movie channel kept erroring so we couldnt watch a movie. Which was 19 dollars ( extremely rich) and the remote was playing up! We asked for help and not very helpful at all! I would not recommended this hotel!

Not very happy with the stay at the above business. Room was crappy and small. Let alone, was informed only 10 mins before checking in that our room we were booked in, wasn't available. Then was placed a poor room with two single beds when ordered two double beds. Tiles in bathroom were falling off around bath/shower. Beds were poor quality. Heard all noises through the night. Not a impressive room or hotel to stay at.
