First - the good stuff. Friendly, cheerful folks at the front desk when one walked in after 16 hours of travel on a wet and windy night. Excellent buffet breakfast value with great service by the lone lady on duty. Outstanding location within a few minutes walk of Souther Cross train station and bus terminal for shuttles to both Melbourne International and Avalon Airports.
The rooms, though, are barely more than basic. A single type of pillow, slightly noisy air-conditioning, a light whiff of musty odour from the towels.
I also had some trouble getting an invoice copy - strange as that sounds - for the prepaid room rent. Yet that may have been a good thing - I mentioned this in my response to the e-questionnaire I received a couple of days letter and the matter was addressed very promptly.
Am looking forward to trying it again and perhaps it will rate up a notch next time.
