“Wonderful Heritage property”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Location within wakling distance to convention centre, casino, and spencer st station make this a great place to stay. This conversion of the old railway admin building makes it a great old world feel with wide corridors, creaky floor boards, a library to name a few.
It isa step back in time. The rooms retain the historic feel with modern updates and comfort.
Staff in bar excellent!

Stayed here for two nights recently over the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Motel is in a good location in Spencer Street – right near Southern Cross Station – within walking distance to casino, aquarium, Southbank. Rooms where clean and very spacious with a small kitchen facility. King size bed was very comfortable. Staff where friendly. Don’t be put off by its location right next to a train line. The only time I heard a train was when I was outside in the carpark. Didn’t have breakfast downstairs as there were lots of little cafes located close by. Did have a drink in the bar which to my surprise closed quite early even while there were still paying customers – maybe that was because it was public holiday? Would stay there again.

This is such a wonderful hotel. The architecture is wonderful. Rooms fantastic with living downstairs and bedroom/bathroom in loft upstairs. Always love the chance to stay in town there. A lot of history as the building is the old Railway Administrative Office. Bar down stairs is good.

Room Tip: Advance purchase are great at $180 per night for a high quality room

The closeness and cheapness of the Skybus gives this hotel another benefit. I had a 9am international departure which was comfortably made.
Pay the bill the night before in case the computer is resetting, and do request a quiet room unless you enjoy a noticeable hum from the trains.
I couldn't manage a meal. The restaurant looked handy. Another time I'd seek out the Secret Garden.
Cheap rate for Advantage Plus Members has upped the score a little, together with the comfortable bed and excellent Roger and Gallet soap etc.

The beds are so comfortable at this hotel. And a big special mention to George the Concierge. The nicest man ever! Great location to Casino and Southbank,.The breakfast was amazing,. The only problem we had was the bar downstairs closed to early.

Excellent location and rooms. A great place to stay for a special occasion. Loved the elegant wide corridors and loft rooms.

Only other comment is that we would have like to see the grand staircase in the residential section but had to ask at reception to organise it - maybe there is another way?

Stayed here recently for several nights mainly due to proximity to the exhibition centre. The staff are friendly the rooms have an interesting mezzanine bedroom. Just two gripes really. Internet service is charged for each device even though it's likely you will only be using one at a time so each laptop, phone, iPad, iPod and tablet will be charged the daily rate. I usually avoid hotels that provide this 'service' on principle. And there is no breakfast buffet so if you are in a hurry, you go hungry. Good but could be better.
