  • Family with children
    6.2

    location, gym, pool, restaurant meal very nice

    extremely noisy - both street noise and adjacent/above rooms. F&F a bit tired, paint chipped, some lights/power not working. Rooms very gloomy and poorly lit - e.g. reading in lounge or table not possible. Desk light only really bright light. Washer/dryer extremely noisy and takes a long time for cycle to complete.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Staff very hospitalable.

    Disappointed and appalled, the mattress protector on one of the beds , was urine stained[ an old stain] very unhygenic.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    close to southbank. early check in and late check out.

    we requested 2 single beds in the second room and didnt get them. ordered a taxi which arrived 1/2 an hour early, then didnt arrive at the correct time.

  • Couple
    5.8

    The location was excellent,directly opposite eureka Tower.

    Check in time was very slow and room was not very clean.

    The spa and pool

    Was charged for the hire of a dvd player, and was charged an extra $50 for no reason

  • Family with children
    5.4

    Very close to Southbank & the city. Quiet at night on the Eastern side - also good blockout curtains.

    Cleaners did not sweep under bathroom cabinet -there was hair and fluff under there for the duration of our stay. Also I requested tissues one morning and then had to remind them later in the day to supply them. I think the hotel is due for a refurb, looks very tired and a bit dirty.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Good balance for costs and quality compared to other Southbank Hotels

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Room service fast, breakfast only fair. Good location for everything Southbank.

    Room layout not as expected, prefer TV in bedroom. Master bedroom to small and could be opened up to one large room. Parking scenario pain in the ass for price, should be valet service, instead of lug bags back out to car and self serve from there! Miserable view.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Location and facilities were good.

    My reservation was for a 2 bed apartment and the fair was for $3147 but the following day a received an email from the hotel saying that the 2bes were not available for that period and they offered two single beds for the same price but i went for just one 1bed apartment and they only gave me back $750 were one expected half the price or what you booked for, add to that the first amount was already deducted from the credit card to start with and with the cancellation policy it was unfair!! Housekeeping was bad as well.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We were upgraded to a two bedroom apartment and it was very comfortable, had a great view and was an interesting layout.

    The air conditioning was noisy and didn't readjust when we turned it down. We were glad to be able to open the window and turn the air conditioning off.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Room size was fantastic and it was close to everything I needed.

    Walls were a little bit dirty

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    We were in Melb for 5 nights to catch up with family. The site was great 5 minute walk to river, rest and bars and from Flinders Station.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The pool facilities where great and the proximity of the hotel was fine.

    Vesy noisy hotel at night , you can hear a lot of traffic noise.
