A hotel that charges a reasonable room rate is often hard to find in Australian cities but this place offers very good value for money.
Location is great - opposite the train/coach station so very handy for the airport bus and there are lots of convenience stores and food options nearby. Short walk to the docklands and southbank restaurants and casino.
Room size was average. Some parts of the room are an older style of fixtures and furnishings, and I would have liked an armchair for relaxing in rather than just a desk chair, but overall it has everything you need and it's all functional and very clean.
It's the usual Australian hotel rip-off for wi-fi - I would suggest buying a pre-pay USB-modem if you're going to be staying more than a couple of nights in hotels in Australia - will work out much cheaper!
Had room service once and it was a reasonable price for what was offered and the 'fit food' idea is good, rather than just having the standard hotel food offerings.
Breakfast buffet is ok - all the usual hot & cold offerings that you would expect at a hotel of this type, and was cheaper than most. The main problem here was the staff - no staff at all for the first 10 minutes I was there!! Then when they did show up all the hot food was empty and it took a long time to re-fill it. I also heard other guests pointing out that things were empty throughout the time I was there - the staff should be noting this, not the guests!! None of them looked the least bit interested in being there and is a smile in the morning too much to ask?! By comparison, the other staff in the hotel were all friendly and efficient.
I'll definitely stay here next time I'm in Melbourne as long as the price/quality ratio stays as good as it currently is.
