Hotel Causeway
Ranked #136 of 162 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed October 27, 2006

I chose Hotel Causeway based on the reviews in this website (it was before the last reviews were posted) and I have to concur with everything said there: This is truly a great hotel.

Located in a small quiet street right in the center, it is walking distance to anywhere in the CBD and at the same time very calm and pleasant. Staff is professional, breakfast is good (in a basic kind of way) and the room was pleasant, clean, comfortable and extremely quiet.

The only issue we had was with the bathroom faucet which was incredibly frustrating to use, as can be seen in the other guy's review pictures. Other then that we found this hotel to be very close to perfect and I have no doubt we will return next time we're in Melbourne.

Unfortunately this hotel was far from what I was expecting to get !! My partner and I stayed here for two nights. We did not find the reception staff helpful or friendly at all. A smile can go a long way and we were struggling just to get that. I must say thought it was very good of the staff to allow us an extra early check in !
The rooms are nice and modern but very tired and in need of some attention! Our room was not cleaned properly before we entered it and during our stay. They didn't even give us the privilige of clean glasses or cups during our stay. The carpet was wet near the bathroom entry before and during our stay because the shower leaks out of the spa bath and onto the floor (and then out onto the carpet due to poor drainage).
The breakfast was simple but nice and the breakfast staff were excellent.
The location is fantastic especially for those wanting to shop ...David Jones is just across the road!
In all I didn't enjoy this hotel and would not stay there again in the future. This place could be made better so quickly by just a little attention to detail.
