“The best option in Williamstown”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

Very clean and comfortable. The Punthill apartments were just as advertised and a very good location. This is the best pick for accommodation in the Williamstown area, ahead of Quest and miles ahead of the dismal Amawind apartments which are not as advertised.

Thank-you Punthill for providing good quality accomodation in this wonderful location.

Room Tip: A room in the upper floors is quieter

Stayed here in October for three nights (for free, so I can't really complain) with a friend who was on a work trip.

Slept on the fold out sofa bed - or tried to sleep. So very uncomfortable, in the end, on the third day - I had the 'mattress' on the floor with the couch cushions under it to make it comfortable enough to get four hours sleep..!

Apartment was clean / modern enough, good size with a balcony on the second floor. Could see it was done on the cheap however - coffee table with a broken leg, sofa bed leg hanging off, mold inside door of the washing machine. Some aspects quite odd - fridge next to the wall, but the door opened the wrong way and poor lighting in the bathroom (not well thought out renovations or planning).

Cleaners cleaned daily and well and left ample towels every time (seemed like overkill, as we didn't ask for anything to be laundered, left nothing on the floor/in the bath).

Reception was not manned the whole weekend we were there, but are a phone call away. Organised a taxi for the next day no hassles. I walked out Sunday morning and no one was at the desk to say good bye or ask if I needed to check out.

Location for Williamstown was close to shops, restaurants and the boat marina / port... Gorgeous view of Melbourne across the bay. Bottle shop next door. Great variety of restaurants and cafes. But after a day, there is really nothing to do in Williamstown other than eat.

If you are travelling alone and have the time (probably 1 1/2 hours), catch the Skybus to / from the airport and train to / from Williamstown, because the cost will be less than a taxi, usually $65 - $70. The train station (Williamstown Beach) is probably the closest station, but will be a good 10 min walk thru suburbs to the apartments.

My recommendation is to stay in Melbourne and head here on a day trip to eat for cheaper than Melbourne, look at a pretty view and get away from the hussle and bussle of the city.

Make sure you check out Poppi and Pippa's for some lovely jewellery and the Thai restaurant on Nelson for some well priced and yummy food :)

Room Tip: Main street isn't very busy at night, rooms on the front with balcony were quiet enough

We stayed in one of the one-bedroom apartments at PuntHill Williamstown in mid October 2011 (extended weekend). The host and hostess (Gilbert & Sylvia) were very friendly and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. There was an issue with the heating/AC system of the apartment (we were informed by the management prior to our arrival) but provided us with a satisfactory solution (and free breakfast!). Apartment was almost new, very clean, with every thing what we needed (Kitchenette, large TV in the lounge and then a wall mounted TV in the bedroom). Everything is immaculate and it was a pleasure to stay there. Great location – close to the waterfront (The Strand), restaurants and also to the North Williamstown railway station (10 min walk).

Overall a good experience, plenty of parking in the basement, a bit of a hassle having to use your room card each time you operate the lift but a good form of security.
The big glass door in our room was a bit off square with the frame and allowed a cold draft to enter the room at the bottom corner.
Room was modern and well appointed with a good sized bathroom.
Great location within easy walking distance to all the cafes and restaurants.

The Service at this place was terrible , was slack in all aspects!!! The reception staff were very rude and very lazy . The reception was unattended 60% off the time . They were lazy cleaning our room. breakfast was meant to be included but there was no breakfast . Worst thing was when I finally got the lady at reception I politely ask her can we have the dog poo removed from the front entrance ? As it was in the way at time and smelly !!! Her reply we do have responsibilty off the path way !!! What a joke . I will never go to this place again never I have had a bad experience and treated do rude

Ideal place to stay for a business trip. Fast but expensive internet. Undercover car park. New and clean building. Good price/value. Good breakfats. Close to nice restaurants around the Hobsons Bay. Close to city.

Room Tip: Do not get a room above the carpark entry!

We arrived in Melbourne from Perth at 5am. After collecting a hire car we arrived on their door step around 7am. Check in time is around 2pm but the lady on the front desk assured us that she would do her very best to get us in early, even though they were booked to capacity. To cut a long story short we went away and had some breakfast, after being offered a free breakfast at the apartments, and then returned at 10am to find they had our room ready for us. We had flown into town for a concert and needed some sleep that afternoon. Amazing service, I couldn't fault them on that.
The apartment was fantastic, clean, good amenities and very spacious. The stud frame walls did mean that there was a bit of external noise (garbage trucks and boat fog horns) as well as the internal noises coming from other apartments (doors closing, plumbing etc) but we could live with those very small inconveniences. My partner and I found the mattress was pretty soft but again for just three nights it was okay.
Again, the front desk staff made our stay a pleasure !!
