When you reach this location, you might not even realise that there is a motel as it is situated right in the heart of Swanston Street, where all the hustle and bustle is. It is situated right in front of the tram stop for Swanston/Collins street. And there's no problem obtaining food as there are lots of fast food joints and small little cafes around. Federation Square (the meeting point in Melbourne) is just a short 5 mins away and so is Flinders St Station, the main train station in Melbourne. Even though it is located in such a busy street, you can barely hear any noise at all from your room. The room is perfectly equipped with the necessities you need and even has FREE breakfast for you consisting of bread, butter, jam and milk! What more can you ask for? There is a microwave over, kettle and toaster for your convenience if you want to make a quick snack for breakfast before you head out for your day. You might also like to know there is a laundry room available and a small charge is incurred to use the washer and dryer.
The only down side is that the cab will not be able to stop right in front of the motel as Swanston street is occupied by trams and not cars. So, the only option is to get your cab to stop either along Flinders Street or any small roads that lead to Swanston. If you need to get a cab to the airport, you may always ask the receptionist to help you with that. They know exactly where to get the cab to wait for you. It was definitely a good choice staying here - simple, convenient and comfortable.
