“Great city apartment hotel, with all the bells and whistles!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

We have been looking for a City hotel that can comfortably accommodate our family of four, and have finally found that in The Seasons Botanic Gardens.
There are many 2-3 bedroom apartments in Melbourne, but very few that offer the services of a good hotel. We were happy to find that the Seasons had large apartments, with good size living areas, who also offered room service, mini bar, had a pool and fitness centre and parking.

It is not city centre, but only a 5 min tram ride or 15 min walk up St Kilda Rd. this was great for us, as it was quiet at night, unlike the city centre, which quite often woke our kids.

Overall we were very happy. The only thing we found that annoyed us was the poor water pressure.

Definitely recommend for families!

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in January 2013. Greeting on arrival was warm and friendly and and staff were happy to store our bags as we were early. Our 3rd floor room was excellently presented with beds made and bins emptied every day. It was hot during some of our stay and the airconditioning was fabulous. All aspects of our room were in sound working condition and the king size bed really comfortable. On a busy (but not distracting noise-wise) St Kilda road and within 15 minutes of walking to Southbank with a tram stop out the front you couldn't want for a more convenient position. We would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: West facing room with balcony ideal and quiet. IGA convenience store 100 metres away open 6-7am -10p...

I found the Seasons Botonic Gardens was in a great location, the staff all had a friendly responsive manner and rooms are well appointed and the cleanliness of a high standard. I have no problems with recommending the Seasons Botonic Gardens to all visitors.

We stayed here for a week from 22 Dec 2012 to 29 Dec 2012 and would not recommend this accommodation at all. I requested a balcony room and we received a room looking into the back of another apartment, all free to air TV channels had coloured lines running thru the screen so could not view them, the aircon did not work and it was going to be a 40 degree day the next day. There was very few cutlery, not even tongs to take food from a pan. There was 2 of everything ie glasses, cups, plates so everytime you had to wash what you used. There was very little storage and 4 hangers in the wardrobe.
We did get moved in the end to another appt with a view of the gardens but whilst the appts have balconies they have no outdoor furniture - ridiculous
Whilst the staff were helpful and friendly I would never stay here again

Room Tip: There are no good rooms

As we always have a positive approach towards our guest feedback, and we believe it help us to improve our shortfalls in order to provide better service to our valued guests.

Please accept my apologies for having trouble with the Air conditioner and TV channels.
All our rooms have limited amenities as a standard in Studio rooms and one bedroom apartments for two people. However, extra items can be provided upon request.

None of our balconies have furniture due to health and safety reasons as furniture could fly off the balconies during stormy weather conditions.

We usually consider all the booking requests and it is not always possible to provide balcony rooms with the view. However, all the special booking requests are honoured first come first serve basis.

I wish if you could reconsider staying with us to experience our true service standards.
Thank you,
Buddhika

We visit Melbourne for the Arts Centre, Opera and Concerts, Art Gallery exhibitions and to meet up with friends. We are an older couple, often travelling by train and tram from Bendigo. Staff are friendly,helpful and concerned to answer our needs. Recently we needed to get to the airport with luggage and they organised a car for us. Occasionally we bring our own car and need to park it at an additional cost behind the hotel. St Kilda Rd tram stop is right outside the hotel with easy access to the city.

We thought we can have a great lunch with all my work colleagues. When we arrived it was not that busy. We were waiting quite a long time to get our meals. We expected that the foods would be great but was not considered even as a 2 star restaurant. Very disappointing as we expected it would be the best Asian foods in St Kilda Road.
The chicken curry taste are very strong with so many spices.
The next day we were thinking to eat at the back of the hotel on wells street which is the best place to eat, considered it would fast and cheaper. And we had enjoyed much better to eat at Don Don than Orient East.
I will consider if i need to go back again to dine there at Orient East.

We have taken your comments on board and briefed Chefs and serving staff accordingly.
Melbourne been a multicultural city and we are trying our level best to satisfy every guest who patronize the restaurant . Unfortunately, it is not always possible to meet the expectations of the individual preferences. However, our chefs are very flexible in adjusting the flavours and spices to suit individual preferences if asked for. Alternatively, our service staff members do advice guests about flavours and spices while taking orders.

We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to our restaurant and to provide better dining experience.

Thank you,
