Positive Reviews

Excellent for Shopping

The hotel is located in the heart of Melbourne's central shopping district just off Little Bourke street and many guests commented that being so close to the centre of town with its plethora of restaurants and bars was the highlight of their stay.

Comfy Beds, Great Room

Guests commented that the beds at the hotel were some of the most comfortable that they had ever slept on, getting a great nights sleep during their stay. Guests also commented that the room was very spacious and well laid out.

Excellent Customer Service, Great Amenities

The front of house staff on reception rated highly amongst a number of previous guests who commented that they were very friendly and helpful.  Guests also commented that the pool and spa were very clean and well maintained.

Negative Reviews

Reservation Rumble

Guests who experienced booking mix-ups, system errors, rooms not being ready on check-in and staff being unable to accommodate their specific room requests left complaints about their experience in their reviews.

Heating Issues

A number of guests had a similar expereince with the lack of heating at the hotel with it not working or in some cases breaking down all together. In the winter months heating is essential in Melbourne as it is a cold city and guests who stayed without heating were not happy.

No Daily Service

The hotel does not offer a daily housekeeping service if guests are staying more than a few days. For many guests this was unacceptable given the room tariffs and not what they would have expected for a hotel in a metropolitan city.  Guests reviews were less than positive about the standard of cleaning that they did witness.
