On our recent Australian trek my wife and I stayed in Melbourne at The Alto. The hotel was a mere stride or two away from the Train and Bus station making it incredibly convenient.
Having been on the move round Australia when we flew into Melbourne we were both shattered but determined to see as much of the city as possible before we rapidly moved on to Port Fairy. The Alto's position was absolutely grand for doing this with city centre and the docklands all within easy walks.
On our return to the hotel in the evening tiredness overcame us and we opted for the easy choice of eating in the hotel but not expecting the food to be of the standard it was. When this was coupled with the really friendly style of our waitress and the chef then the evening was fully complete for 2 tired but fully satisfied travellers.
Our apartment (we were upgraded!!) was extremely well furnished with everything you could possibly want + immaculately clean. The only slight downside being the outlook which looked out onto other nearby apartments but this is me simply being nit picky.
A great (comfortable !!!) night's sleep and good breakfast and we were ready to rumble onto the Great Ocean Road.
All in all the hotel was everything we could have hoped for and we wouldn't hesitate to use it again if we ever get back to Melbourne. Get booked in and you won't be disappointed ( great base for a few days in Melbourne !!!).
