We had a two day training course at the Strand in Williamstown so this was the logical choice for accomodation being two doors up.
The lady on the front desk was very helpful and pleasent and although she admitted that she had only been in Melbourne for 4 days you could tell that she had done a lot of research on the local area. Only piece of information she did not get quite right was which was the closest station but when I found out the Williamstown Beach Station was a lot closer then Williamstown north you could tell that she was grateful for the advice for future reference.
The main thing I liked about the property was the size and comfort of the rooms. This is the sort of place you could stay for a month and is fully contained with kitchen and laundry facilities in the room. The other thing I found particularly good was the comfort of the beds. Rooms were all very clean.
Williamstown is not walking distance to Melbourne CBD the train ride into the city seemed to take a lot longer than the geographical distance would suggest. But the actual location is lovely. The hotel is very close to the waterfront with views across the bay to the city. Along the foreshore there is lots of places to eat and drink. We took a punt and went to Customs House for a meal and it was very pleasant. I am sure the other places would be all of high standards and everywhere had plenty of people dining which I take as a good sign.
Williamstown is a good option for those with a car and no real need to be in the city. Also if you do drive into the city there are no toll roads.
