    I liked the decor and the ammenities in the room

    A little difficult to get to the motorway

    This hotel was terrible, nothing like the pictures. It was old and run down and needs refurbishment. Definately not 4 star like it says on this website. It's fine if you are looking for something budget, 3 star.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Excellent size of rooms. All necessary bathroom items provided and of good quality. Towels excellent

    Lack of room phone for reception contact.Charge of $10 for parking.

  • Older travelers

    It is a very comfortable place to be based, all the staff were friendly and very helpful. we'd had a very long journey and they were very aware and considerate in trying to get us into our room even though we were did not expect our room to be available early, this was a lovely introduction to the hotel. At all time through our stay all the staff were helpful even if it was only directions. This is my second stay here but my husbands first and he was able to experience exactly the same service that I had experienced last year. Many of the same staff were still there which is always a very good sigh of a happy work place

    Close to the CBD without being in it. Free parking.

    Very tired refurbished hotel. Very small bathroom. Curtains did a poor job of blocking light and were impossible to close so that people couldn't see in from outside (I was on the ground floor).

  • Older travelers

    The room not cleaned well on second day and towels/bed linens not changed. Paid parking $10/day.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    good and clean, we asked for a bath and got a spa, we were very happy

    having to pay extra for parking.

  • Single
    9.6

    The pool, the gym and the king size bed. Also, the staff response to an accident I had in the room spilling candle wax on the carpet. The cleaner did a wonderful job of cleaning it up.

    The reception staff were not always at the reception desk

  • Couple
    4.2

    desk staff was ok, although they could not sell us the tram tickets like in the other similarly priced hotel in Melbourne

    poor in every way, I expected more from this chain... the bed sheets were filthy and we needed to ask for room service to change them, it was obvious they have not been changed in a while and once the room service was there the person was negotiating us down to not changing everything. It was mighty annoying!!!

  • Couple
    9.2

    The pool, sauner, spa, cleanliness and friendly/helpful staff.

    The breakfast was $44 for a cold meal. Noise in the morning (i.e. suitcases wheeled along the outside). You could put rubber mats all along the ground to counteract the noise of the wheels on the concrete ground. Also you could offer breakfast included at that price.

  • Older travelers

    My husband and I found the hotel to be located in a very nice location very handy to the city with regular tram service and just a short walk to the Brunswick township.

    The room was not the same standard of the Vibe Hotel in Sydney which was disappointing. I would only give the room a 2 and a half star rating. The TV was very old and the sound did not work properly. They need to refurbish the rooms and update to flat screen tv's.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Easy for transport. Ideally placed outside city to be relaxing.

    Traffic noise. If I stayed in future, would insist on room at rear. Smell of cigarette smoke in room - think previous client had little consideration for others.

  • Single
    5.4

    The location is great.

    The staff were not that helpful, someone left an open packet of violet crumble in my room - one of the staff must have taken it from the fridge and eaten some of them! The shower didn't work when I explained this to the person on the front desk she said that there was a certain way of getting it to work but the knob had come off in my hand. It was re-attached but I still couldn't use the shower. The jacuzzi in my bath was really dirty when I turned it on lots of dirt came out. Also it was really noisy at night people were banging doors and talking loudly on their balconies at 1/2 and 4 am, so it was very noisy at the weekends!

    close to trams to take you into city centre.
