        I didn;t like beibg so close to the roadside and Highett is not really anything as described in the advert...

        It was conveneint to shopping centre and close to function we attended

      • Couple
        8.8

        Breakfast was great. Good options.

        The layout of the whole place - neighbours woke us up at 1am because the doorways etc are very echoey

        the staff over there was friendly and helpful, food in the bar is great, bar open till late, very nice

      • Family with children
        7.0

        Proximity to family

        No allocated parking space, which was very inconvenient when there was a wedding reception on the Saturday night and we had a lot of trouble finding a park for our car. Guests arriving in wet weather would have been extremely inconvenienced, as would elderly guests, especially as street parking was also at a premium.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        close to the golf for me and comfort..

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        The reception and ancillary staff were extremely helpful, particularly as we arrived in the midst of a 'Melbourne' downpour. The room was a confort (and dry) - shower needs attention: mould buildup and door hinges coming apart and ran out of hot water round 6pm as we prepared to attend a surprise birthday party at Hampton. Otherwise, we would recommend your enterprise and had it been find, it would have been good to know how to get to Hampton High Street as we felt the taxi fares there and back (in the rain and dark) were excessive when we found out next day just how close we were. Otherwise, a very good stay. Thank you.

        As before - regarding your question about guest reviews we did not read them - we know Best Western has a good reputation so ignore guest reviews below - cant type inn there

      • Older travelers

        The friendly and helpful staff, the closeness to public transport, comfortable and clean rooms, lovely gardens, easy parking, good restaurant, traffic noise was kept to minium

      • Family with children
        10.0

        Friendly staff meals were great with excellent service, will stay again and tell friends;

        It would be nice to have a single beds in some rooms for children.

        the room was nice

        yeah the 100 dollar deposit i never knew about it. this should be told when booking the room

      • Couple
        6.6

        convinient location, walking distance to train and shopping, good value for money

        The stuff is friendly but lack of knowlege their own hotel brand

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        The breakfast buffet provided a wide choice and the staff very helpful and informative about local attractions. The management dealt with our problem regarding the booking in a professional way. The fittings were of a high quality but the volume control on the bedside radio was poor at low volumes cutting out and crackling when adjusted.

        The room we had (nr. 57) was an executive room but was dingy and bland. The bathroom was small with limited storage areas and had a musty smell.

      • Single
        8.8

        Hotel was clean and well presented. Due to the low temperatures and the design of the hotel the rooms were slightly on the cold side even with the air con unit operating. Food and Service in the restaurant was excellent.

        Temperature of rooms.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Reception and breakfast better than expected

        Difficult stairs to second floor

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Your maitre "d wonderful gentleman who made our stay just great, we really felt appreciated

        Ad was for room/breakfast included, found only 1 of the couple sharing the room was applicable
