I stayed here for my partners birthday to get away for the night. The hotel was very clean and bed was fantastic! Soooo soft and snuggly. I was a bit dissappointed there are no dvd players in the room, and on the room lists it says you can hire one for the night but when I called concierge they said they are hard to get and they dont have many. He said he will bring it up if they find one but never heard back so a bit dissapointing.
The spa at the top of the hotel was fantastic with great views. There was a bit too much chlorine in the spa though as our eyes started to sting after a little while and we hadnt even dipped our head in the water, the fumes coming up when the jets were on became very overpowering.
The buffet breakfast was great, lots of choice and tasted lovely.
Overall a good hotel, very comfortable and quiet. A nice experience

Room Tip: We were on 6th floor room 806 and was fantastic views overlooking the city

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I will look into the DVD question and I apologise that a machine was not delivered when requested. The chlorine is automatically controlled in the spa although we check these levels several times a day. Again apologise that they did not appear to be right. Overall it appears that you did enjoy your stay and I hope to welcome you back in the future.

My husband and two kids enjoyed the big family room with more than enough room for play & toys. Bathroom was also spacious including a bath. We ordered room service for breakfast and it was served hot with so much variety. Dinner in the restaurant was a highlight especially the fact that you had a kids menu and made us feel welcome even giving us a colouring in book keeping the kids amused whilst we enjoyed fine dining at the same time. Kids loved the wade pool, spa was a bit too hot.... Overall, we had a lovely stay. Definitely come back.

Vanessa, it is always pleasing to read when a family stays that everyone has enjoyed their time at the Parkview. I agree the family rooms are very spacious and are popular with our regular families visiting. I hope I have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future.

We stayed at the Parkview because my Mum was in the Alfred hospital which was only a 5 minute walk away. Lovely rooms with quality bathroom products and comfy robes. Reception staff were very friendly. They allowed us to leave our cars for the day after we checked out so we didn't have to find on street parking. Only downside was the car parks are extremely small so good luck getting into one!

Very comfortable stay at MPV. We thought it was very good value - car parking and excellent breakfast included in the tariff. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bathroom was small but lovely fluffy towels and nicely renovated. Bed very comfortable.

Wonderful room, heaps of space, great with the dressing room. Bathroom was clean and had everything we needed, shower was great. King size bed was so comfy and excellent with the heavy curtains for an awesome sleep in. Spa and sauna was awesome to relax on the roof too (didn't use pool or gym, but they were to high standard too). Breakfast was yummy!

Stayed on level 7 with a city view. Will definitely be back to stay again.

Staff made us feel at home, the view of Melbourne and the open spaces of Albert Park are a real bonus. The tram line is an easy walk and the trip into the centre of Melbourne is quick and convenient. The breakfast time was very busy on Saturday and Sunday, the staff were flat out clearing the tables ands obtaining the buffet. The staff who cleaned the room did a top job, the room was neat, fresh and clean. The bed was very comfortable and sleep was easy..

Our stay for 2 nights over Melbourne Cup carnival was off to a great start when we were warmly welcomed at reception on checking in and upgraded.
Room and view over the parks and city was clean and spacious.
Will definitely stay again.
