Location was good. The reception was helpful and letting me move rooms when I complained about the noisy neighbor's children. Bed was comfortable and sheets were clean. Shower had a stainless steel floor. The internet login page has grammatical errors.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days in April. Our heritage room on level 5 was comfortable and clean.Beds very comfotable although the pillows were too soft for me. Bathroom was small but fresh and new. Loved the big TV. Hotel is going through some renovations and I wouldnt want to stay in the old section. Some reception staff were friendly, some were not.The Alice Restaurant which is part of the hotel for lunch, dinner and breakfast has a great reasonably priced takeaway menu which we used nearly every night as we like to dine in our room.

Room Tip: Twin heritage room

Our room was beautifully comfortable, clean and spacious. The location was ideal, very close to everything we needed. Recent renopvations have obviously made our room modern and comfortable. Ongoing renovations in the motel did not cause any major disruption although we are sure they affected the cleanliness, particularly in the corridor area around the lifts. The lifts were particularly old and dirty, and on some occasions were very slow. The service for breakfasts and our evening meal were inconsistent, as was the pricing for breakfast, although that was corrected immediately that we commented on the difference. We had thought of going for a swim but the pool smelt very heavily chlorinated, and the floor around the pool was very dirty- wet and muddy looking with rubbish left on the floor. That was a shame as it looked attractive enough.

At first was a bit nervous of having to walk through the older section that smelt of its history- old smokey pub. Had read reviews about old rooms. But happy to discover we had a newer room that was fresh and clean. Large shower, safe, little bar fridge and big TV. Gym had 2 treadmills and 2 exercise bikes and 2 multi use gym weights machines, a sauna and very small pool and reasonable sized new spa. Overall good value and location

I decided to stay at this hotel again (last time many years ago) on my anzac trip to melbourne this year. I stayed 2 nights, at a rate of $140 a night which included a hot breakfast.

CHECK-IN: Efficient.
ROOM: Heritage Queen Room on level 4. A bit of a maze to get to it - up in central lifts to level 1, then along a hall way to another building, then into another set of lifts up to level 2-8. Room was large, quite adequate for one-two people (even with suitcases), renovated, flat screen tv, queen size bed, self-regulated aircon/heating, large and renovated bathroom with shower/toilet, plenty of cupboard space, safe and fridge (inside cupboard). The room was a little stuffy when i first arrived, but quickly remedied. One down side was the window - looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while - it was very smudgy and couldn't get a clear view of the outside.

BREAKFAST: Included in the room rate. Located in building across the lane. Normally full hot breakfast is around $16.90. Cereals, toast, coffee/tea/chocolate, good selection of fresh fruit, yoghurt, juices and pastries. Hot food included the usual bacon, scrambled and poached eggs (the poached egg tasted plastic...yuk), baked beans,hash browns, sausages and grilled tomatoes.

LOCATION: This is the highlight! One of the best locations in Melbourne. Located in Little Collins Street, a minute's walk from Swanston street - shops, trams, restaurants etc.

Would I stay here again? Yes, however probably wouldn't bother with the breakfast inclusion next time and maybe if at a slightly lower rate. Need to allow an extra 1/2 hour to travel time to allow arriving from the airport by skybus and then the skybus minibus drop off to the hotel.

Were in Melbourne for a weekend away and chose this hotel based on its location. The hotel room was small but sufficient. However, there was quite a lot of noise at night which made sleeping quite difficult. Not a fan of the locker system.

Not a bad hotel, however my visit was at the same time as construction work being undertaken so hallways directly outside of elevators were quite run down. Only problem with my room was that my air conditioning didn't work properly, however due to the temperature in melbourne in April, this wasn't a major concern.

Awesome en-suite and bathroom, good bed and overall room quality. Bit expensive for what I recieved however.
