“All Good....except for the wifi rip off”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great hotel, location great, beds are super comfortable.....my only complaint...yep...its the wifi rip off. $10 bucks to download the equivalent of a 4min song on youtube. A joke.
Would I stay there again...no way , unless they changed their wifi policy

Stayed here for the weekend of the F1 race. The hotel has a great location close to the heart of things. Great restaurants and transport links nearby. We booked a 2 bed apartment and shared it with some friends. If you do the same, be aware that the sound travels within the apartment due to the open balcony into the bedrooms (mezzanine). To be fair though it was perfectly fine for us.

It is quiet and clean and I would recommend it if you are after straight-forward accommodation.

Once again I stayed in this lovely property recently and was not disappointed. A midweek special deal made it fantastic value for money . A delicious freshly cooked a la carte breakfast is a highlight of this hotel but this can result in delays in receiving your order so the tip is allow plenty of time. Some of the rooms have rooms with an attic bedroom with quite steep narrow steps so if you have mobility issues be sure to advise on booking. These particular rooms have great character if you are fit and able . Some rooms are quite far from lifts along a beautiful corridor that is very charming so a request for a close room could be considered

Beautifully restored 1890's Railway building in the "older" part of Melbourne on Spencer Street.
Has all the facilities you could requre; pool, gym etc and is very handy to all modes of transport.
The rooms are very big and well furnished, very comfortable. All rooms also have a kitchen, which can be very handy.
A writing desk and couch make for a very good stay.
A good large bathroom with roof shower and standard shower and excellent quality toiletries -Roger Gallet.
Very comfotable bed tops its off.
Highly recommended.
