Positive Reviews

Everyone feels well looked after.

Friendly people work throughout this hotel and provide attentive service so that every visitor feels right at home. Staff members are also very accommodating and prompt at taking care of issues or requests.

Boutique sense found throughout.

Good decor throughout the hotel is a highlight for many guests. Visitors also enjoy the well appointed private rooms and classy furnishings that create a quaint, boutique style property.

Well located in Melbourne.

Many of Melbourne's highlights, including the Botanical Gardens and central business district, are within an easy walk of the hotel. There also plenty of restaurants nearby, along with a tram stop that is handy for exploring the city.

Negative Reviews

Accommodation doesn't quite live up to the price.

Stays at this hotel are a bit pricey, and many guests don't see the quality of the accommodation living up to the cost. Despite a five-star rating the rooms are lacking in some amenities, according to reviews. Also, as some of the facilities often have maintenance issues, guests recommend travellers instead check out one of the other options in Melbourne for a better value.

Private bathrooms are not ideal.

Guests report the bathroom facilities at this hotel are a bit small, and can be challenging to manoeuvre in. Outdated fixtures are also a common complaint about the private bathrooms.

Breakfast is not included.

Booking a room at this hotel doesn't include a morning meal. There is some confusion on this for many guests as different online advertisements mention a complimentary meal, but what is offered at the onsite restaurant will cost extra.
