“Compact apartment style rooms”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Williamstown is a lovely place to stay. Very nautical, with lots of Australian history and activities. We stayed for 10 days for a sailing competition in a 1 bedroom apartment. It was adequate with everything you need (basic kitchen, reasonable sized bathroom, bedroom and lounge with sofa bed). It is not spacious and best kept to 2 adults. We had 2 adults and 1 teenager and it was tight.

Our room on the ground floor had 2 double sliding doors separating the bedroom and the lounge. So, it is more like a studio than a 1 bedroom apartment.

Tip - best things to do in Williamstown - cycle on the excellent bike tracks, including taking the punt to Docklands, walk, eat at the numerous restaurants, eat ice cream and coffee, soak up the nautical town.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment overlooking the park rather than the slipyard. The 1st or 2nd floor are better...

Pretty location and nice staff but hard bed, really uncomfortable, and noises in room 2 from the reception place above .. every time we rested and when we tried to have a fairly early night weird scraping noises started - like a dripping tap it drove us crazy. Turned out to be the reception place above and the sound was chair legs scraping ... one can only imagine what its like with a wedding going on up there . Pretty location though

Room Tip: Do NOT get room 2 - no view and lots of noise

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment with balcony overlooking the yacht club.
Rooms were quite sizeable. Apartment had everything one would need for a break. Close to town for getting the essentials. Great choice of restaurants in the area.
One staff member "Tash" was great with advice on visiting Melbourne, very helpful and greatly appreciated, however service on check in was ordinary. So it depends on the staff you get on the day.
Bathroom was small and exhaust fans don't work, but apparently these are getting a makeover.
The king bed in the main room was hard, beds in huge other room were ok.
Recommend asking for a room away from the function room.
They could do with installing devices to keep the doors open when carrying all the bags through.
Apart from that not bad and good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from function room and not at the front near the restaurant.

My husband and I stayed in suite 29 at the top of the complex for 1 night, overlooking the marina, boats and the city skyline. Just lovely.
Well appointed, quiet and comfortable. parking in the basement and a good restaurent is part of the complex. Excellent if you are weary after a busy day.

Room Tip: Suite 29 has ecellent views and plenty of space with a balcony over looking the marine and city skyl...

A warm welcome, nice rooms, very clean, interesting room layout, nicely located close to food-pubs-other good spots, comfy and homely. Will make this my Melbourne place to stay on the days when international hotel brands don't appeal and a comfy spot on the water,close to the city, is preferred.

Good location but for the hefty price you expect a lot better. Whatever you do do not accept Room 1. It cops noise on all fronts ranging from the bar/restaurant, function centre (wedding both Sat & Sun nights) and the clean-ups that occur afterwards. Even had a noisy fridge and people going in and out of reception, catching taxis, you name it. The walls are no noise barrier whatsoever. I'm unsure about other rooms, so check this if you choose to stay. As well I keep wondering why hotels & other accommodation continue to provide such crappy pillows (how much does a pillow cost really?). This place the pillows were like sleeping on concrete. Not good value all round.
