“Have stayed here often”
Reviewed April 18, 2007

I have stayed at this hotel at least once a year for about 5 years.
It is a good 4* premises.

THE ROOMS
The rooms are a reasonable size with all the expected facilities including tea and coffee making, internet access. good bathrooms and mini bars.
The rooms on the eastern side have views over the suburbs to the Dandenong Ranges. Rooms on the western side look at the roofs of adjoining buildings with some views towards the city.
The mini bar charges are ridiculous, a small 1/2 size can of soft drink around 3 times more than you can buy it at a Supermarket and bottles of wine about the same amount dearer than they can be bought at a liqour store. But this is usual for large hotel chains. They even charge for biscuits to have with your tea of coffee.

A TIP
There are supermarkets and liqour stores nearby. Empty the mini bar and go and buy you own stuff to put in it.

MEALS
The restaurant again is as expected with a buffet breakfast, a-la-carte evening meals and a seafood buffett on weekends. Nothing special but good enough.
Last time I stayed there the restuarant was overloaded at breakfast time but I have been assured by management that this will be fixed.
Light lunches are available in the bar.
There are several restaurants in an adjoining arcade and within 2 minutes walk are a wide variety of cafes and restaurants.

LOCATION
Glen Waverley is a middle class eastern suburb of Melbourne. There is a railway station within 5 minutes walk of the hotel with regular trains to the City.
Road access is good as the Monash Freeway passes within a couple of kilometers of the hotel.
There is extensive shopping, including a major shopping mall (The Glen), a short walk from the hotel.
There is a movie theatre complex and a poker (slot) machine premises in Century Walk which is part of the hotel complex.

A WORD OF WARNING.
If you are using a car the hotel has on site basement parking but they charge a fee. Last time I was there it was $12 a day. Don't forget to factor this in to your accomodation cost.

SUMMARY

A good 4* hotel with some things over priced. If you don't need to stay in the city, a great location with excellent surrounding facilities.

I have stayed here many times as it is just down the road from our office. It is a typical Novotel and staff are friendly and pleased to help. Rooms are light and bright and always very clean. Bathrooms are also good and do their job very well.

The small bar area and restaurant are also good for the odd drink and breakfast.

It is good that it is part of a complex with a cinema built in as well as various restaurants so you can get out of the hotel and do something different. It is also 2 minutes walk from the train which takes you straight into down town Melbourne in about 30 minutes.

All in all a nice hotel if you have to visit the area.
