Okay hotel. Room had great city views
Breakfast not great. We paid for breakfast through travel agent and was initially told we didn't have breakfast included. We then had to hear how this happens all the time but eventually it was sorted out. Poor service for breakfast. No explanation how it works coffee was the worst I have ever had. Had to ask for a cup as they had run out on tray. Food average don't eat the baked beans.
Hotel staff helpful. Close to tram. Small bathrooms and bar fridge locked so you have to ask to use. This was irritating as we bring fresh milk with us

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am disappointed to read that breakfast was not up to our normal standard and would certainly like to extend my apologies. The mini bar fridges are security/ sealed over weekends and can be opened anytime by calling room service. I hope that I have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future.

This hotel was more than we expected, the room was spacious, and very clean. there was only one small hicup and that was room service they made two errors. we ordered two soups with fresh bread and we recieved the soup without the breadroll, when we advised them it took ages for the bread to be delivered and by that time the soup was cold, and the breadroll was not fresh it was micowaved. on the up side when i told them about this they were appoligic and removed the charged. Would definitly stay here again, trams just out front to go into the city, parking at the hotel was open and easy to get in and out off.

We were given a lovely welcome and an upgrade and bottle of sparkling as it was our anniversary. Excellent spot, we headed into StKilda, the city and Chapel St easily from here via tram which is a very close walk thankfully because it was 44 when we stayed!

We had an Australian Open package including 3 nights at this hotel. The bed was comfortable and bathroom good with space for the luggage out of sight, but our view was only the rear of other buildings. We were disappointed with the buffet breakfast, had to repeatedly ask for food to be replenished and the coffee was wet, warm and indifferent. We were grateful there was a special breakfast price for January ($20 pp) rather than the usual $29 pp, even then it was no bargain. Staff were helpful and pleasant but not sure we would not be keen to stay here again.

Room Tip: Di not stay on lower floors as no view.

The room- guest king with city views - excellent. Atho' the bathroom somewhat cosy -walk-in shower OK if you don't mind a wet floor - personally I find it quite challenging.
I would have appreciated being advised (during check-in) that the in room mini bar was locked. Not experienced this anywhere else - even tho' credit card provided for additional charges. Felt most uncomfortable about this it really spoilt our visit.

$25 pp buffet breakfast a little steep - but it was a holiday weekend.
$12 parking fee quite reasonable

Room Tip: Do ask for a room with a view - on a previous stopover (5 nights) I had a blank wall.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I apologise that the security lock/seal on the mini bar made you feel uncomfortable. The seal does explain that by calling room service the fridge and be opened at anytime. I hope that this procedure does not deter you from staying with us in the future.

The hotel is gorgeous, rooms are spacious. Service was fantastic as was the food on offer. Location was ideal as it was close enough to the CBD n other attractions like Luna Park. I would definitely stay there again n would recommend to family n friends.
