“Unexpected find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

This has to be the best hotel I have stayed in this side of Melbourne.
Because it is attached to the trotting complex I had always disregaded it, but I gave it a go and found a top quality hotel. Even when there is racing on it is nice and quiet.

The rooms are large, comfortabl and well furnished. The bathroom is excellent with both a bath and separate shower.

I haven't tried dining in the bistro in the evening, it's probably not my scene.
A 5 minute drive into Melton acceses some average take aways.
In the morning there is a simple continental breakfast of juice, cerial, toast & coffee. Adequate to start the day.

I am happy to make this my base when working this side of Melbourne.

Stayed here for 1 night in Track View Room. Rooms were large, clean and modern but a little on the basic side. Bathroom was nice with a bathtub and couldn't have been cleaner. Bed was big and comfortable. Staff were friendly and check in/check out was fast. Tabcorp complex also contained a great Bistro, Pokies and Sports Bar which were all good ways to kill a few hours while staying in Melton. Standard rooms have a carpark view while the Track Side Rooms obviously have views of the Tabcorp Park Harness Track. If you have to stay in the Melton area then you can't beat this hotel.

Room Tip: Go Track Side for a better view

My husband and I recently had a night away and stayed at Tabcorp Park Melton. The room was modern and more importantly, clean! We found the staff to be more than welcoming and made our stay a most enjoyable one. The meal from the bistro was of restaurant quality and highly recommended, as was the buffet breakfast we enjoyed the following morning. Overall an enjoyable, and way overdue, getaway.

My partner and I brought over our horse from Adelaide and stayed at Tabcorp Park. We both found staff to be very friendly and the room very spacious and well appointed. We were on trackside and could have watched the harness racing from our room if we had wanted to. We could not take our dinner booking as we were running late and unfortunately could not get into the bistro after that and had to buy from trackside which was not the best. The breakfast was lovely and our horse stayed on for another run the following week and was placed so it was all worthwhile.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny

Congratulations on the placing of your horse at Tabcorp Park and we are thrilled that your trip was worth the effort.

We are proud of the facilities here and are glad that you enjoyed them.

We regret that you did not enjoy the food from the fast food van at the track & I will pass on your feedback to them. Hopefully next time, you will make it in time for the reservation in the bistro. Or to give you another option, the Friday Night Buffet upstairs gives you the opportunity to slip out to the stables or watch the race from the grandstand, allowing you to eat when ever you please.

Warm regards,

My Family -husband, two boys, my Parents and l recently stayed at Tapcorp Park Melton in the three bedroom apartment. Room was very well appointed, modern, and clean. Location for us was convenient as family we were visiting live in Kurrajang. Breakfast for us was hot meal selected from menu - with toast and cereal also available - wide selection to suit all ages and tastes. Staff were very polite and friendly. We were on the road side did not find traffic noise an issue for sleep quality - coming from the country always a concern. No undercover parking available but in saying that with two cars no issues with locating a park. Only one thing to keep in mind apartment aircon centrally controlled, did have to call to have switched off at night- was noisy.

Thankyou for visiting Tabcorp Park over the busy Easter period.

We have taken note of your feedback regarding the air conditioning and the room temperature can now be controlled from two points in each of the self contained apartments. Therefore giving you full control. The fan speed has also been adjusted, making it much quieter.

We're pleased that you found the hotel enjoyable and hope to see you again when you visit family again.

We stayed in October while attending a family wedding at a winery a short distance away.

The rooms are very modern, very clean and well appointed. The front-desk staff were very polite and business like. A little dissapointed with the breakfast served, very poor quality and very limited selection.

If you are staying for the racing or (like us) a function in the local area then this is a nice place to sleep but any other time there is no atmosphere and it is too far out of town for the price.

Room Tip: Tip 1: Too many speed bumps on the driveway. Tip 2: Well outside of the centre of Melton. Tip 3: Y...

Thanks for visiting us at Tabcorp Park.

We regret that you didn't enjoy your Continental Breakfast with us and have recently taken steps to upgrade them. Hot breakfasts can now be ordered Monday to Friday and the weekend stays now include a full hot Buffet Breakfast. It is fast becoming popular with the locals also.

We have also installed a background music system to add to the atmosphere of the venue.

Hopefully we will see you again in the future.

Nice Rooms, great facilities. Quiet on the track side on non race days, and lots of fun on race days. Quiet after races. The road side is noisy, so make sure when booking you ask for the Track side.

Room Tip: Book on the track side.
