We had such a great stay at the Hotel Causeway. It was exactly what I was looking for: somewhere small, neat today right smack bang in the centre of Melbourne. We were on a girls shopping weekend so anyone else planning such a trip should stay here. We got a great deal through a website for a twin room incl. breakfast for $125 per night which was amazing. I thought the hotel might be tricky to find as it was tucked in an alleyway but it was fine, easy to spot. Check in was swift and we even got our room a few hours early which was great. The twin room was actually quite large (enough for our luggage and our daily accumulation of shopping bags!). The beds were comfy although one of the beds on wheels kept travelling during the night but that was probably down to the occupant!
The bathroom was a great size but the shower was a bit tricky to get the right temperature so that did require a bit of tampering with. The room itself was clean but I think it could just do with a lick of paint here and there and where the carpet was shaded cream, you could see some of the marks (suggest it just be an all round plain dark carpet). Breakfast was adequate for me. Not massive but enough to keep you going with a good selection of fruits, breads, juices and tea and coffee.
The location was just awesome - right in the heart of Melbourne, opposite the David Jones entrance and close to plenty of other laneways, cafes, bars and shops. This is what sells the place and I would recommend it to any ladies out there wanting a great weekend away.
