We checked in to Apartments @ Docklands in May for our 5 day trip to Melbourne. A short mini-bus trip from the airport brought us to the reception office, staffed by two friendly, helpful Victorians (one of whom was undergoing training) who checked us in without any hassles, upgraded us to a 2 bedroom apartment, then walked us down to our building, up the elevator, finally guiding us through our room which offered sensational views of the CBD and Docklands Harbour.
We each had our own ensuites (always a plus) and the furnishings were clean and comfortable - especially the bed. Some Foxtel channels available for the rainy days, plus a fully equipped kitchen.
Docklands itself seemed somewhat deserted, only showing feint signs of life around meal times, when the trendy, ethnic cafe's and designer restaurants started to pick up. We ate at several of these and were happy with the quality and value on each occasion. The location suited us perfectly, a very short tram ride from the CBD (on one of the FREE city circle trams), but just far enough away from all the action to relax after a hard day pounding the pavement.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Apartments @ Docklands and would recommend them to anyone heading to Melbourne. We'll definitely be back.
