Great location and superb view that we found by accident after a horrific experience in another hotel. Our 2 bed, 2 bath apartment overlooked the Yarram river and Port Phillip Bay. The staff was friendly and more than accommodating. Adam and Alicia went above and beyond to help us, Adam brought us to our rooms and even helped carry our luggage. It was an easy drive to Queen Victoria Market, and a 3 minute walk to the City Tram which took us around the city. Easy access to the main highway was also a plus. The Docklands area is pleasant and filled with shops and restaurants. Perfect for families and the business traveler who would love to relax in a beautiful environment!

Room Tip: Book a waterfront room if possible.

we went to Melbourne for a family Christmas holiday, enjoyed every minute. We had a 3 bedroom apartment which was very comfortable. I liked that we had our own bathroom each. IGA next door and lots of restaurants also harbour town outlet shopping across the road. free tram right outside the door.

Room Tip: if you can afford go as big as you can, also look at the bathrooms, my father had an apartment in an...

We stayed here recently for 4 days - asking for a harbour view room (as per their website where both bedroom and lounge have wonderful views) and away from the noise of the construction and preferrably a high floor (as per other trip advisor reviews). Instead of being allocated one of their normal harbour view apartments we were allocated an apartment in another building. The lounge /kitchen / dining area had wonderful views of the harbour however, our bedroom was so small and claustrophobic - very small window facing west and NO AIRCONDITIONING!!!! Also the aparment was extremely tired - walls scratched, mould in the bathroom and the floors hadn't been vacuumed! We were basically in a residential apartment block!

The front office staff were extremely helpful in trying to find another apartment for us but with no luck. So................my wonderful husband sorted the problem - he moved the lounge area around and moved the bed from the bedroom to the lounge area giving us a studio apartment with great views.

Make sure you stipulate which type of apartment you require on booking. Otherwise you may have the same fate as we did.

Would not stay here again until construction work is completed so that we could have the apartment we paid for.

Last visit was with my wife in November 2012. An overseas friend joined us there for a few days. Again, we were NOT disappointed. OK, we were not up near the new building area but sorry, I have lunch in my home city sometimes and suffer that. The convenience is great - trams within spitting distance, the security, full kitchen facilities (if the dishes are dirty just stick them in the dishwasher for Pete's sake!), views have always been good - different angles of the narbour area. We have never found a problem with the admin people and have had very quick responses to any queries. Just so very much better than a few rather seedy hotels with larger prices.
I recommend strongly.

Room Tip: Talk to the management when you book so you know what sort of view you will be getting.

Stayed at the Grand Mercure Docklands Apartments. What a wonderful place to stay. So glad we upgraded to a water front apartment. The view was fantastic. I just lay in bed and looked out the windows at the lights, water & skyline. The apartments was not huge but was well equiped and tastefully decorated. The beds were also very comfortable. We were in the Condor Apartments and they were so handy to all the restaurants, public transport and would be an excellent place to stay if you were attending Etihad Stadium. We were there last weekend and the boat exhibition was on the boardwalk. It was great with all of the people visiting the exhibits. Also the staff were very helpful and courteous. We had a wonderful time and would go back again if the occasions arises.
