                    The suite was tiny a small sofa.

                  • Location is good and the hotel is a lovely Victorian mansion that has been refurbished. The room is very nice and the restaurant is excellent.

                    Bathroom quite small, the dinner/lunch options too were a little limited and expensive.

                  • The location is convenient, the amenities of the hotel are as expected and the little flat screen TV is just nice for the room. Restaurant food is very good.

                    Very narrow bathroom, expensive breakfast.

                  • Area is very quiet and the Hotel employees are very nice, friendly. Service is good and would recommend to others, perhaps different rooms have a better setup.

                    The bathroom was dirty and the breakfast was ok, and I thought a little expensive at $23.

                  • In a good location and a quick tram ride into the city. The hotel is extremely charming and the staff is delightful and very helpful. The rooms are very spacious, unusually large.

                    I loved the old building has been lovingly restored.

                  • Location is quite good, trams are just across the road and 5 minute ride in CBD, the situation of the hotel is very near to downtown. The staff is very helpful, room is fine and excellent wine list, cheese board and deserts.

                    Lovely old building and price was not too expensive either. Shower was not great, food was not acceptable.

                  • Just outside the city, parks and is excellent value for money, the hotel itself has great ambience, very romantic decor, snooker room etc_, really lovely place. The prices are reasonable worth every penny and the personal to reception is nice. The bed is very comfortable, the breakfast are very good.

                    Its a big old house in between several modern office buildings, staff unwilling to undertake services like confirming flights.

                  • The location was perfect, short tram ride into the city was convenient and no complaints during the stay, everything from aircon to housekeeping was good. Prices were reasonable for Australia and staff were friendly. The rooms were very clean, music was nice.

                    This hotel is old world.

                  • Good price and location, the trams were sooo cheap, albert Park was also directly behind the hotel was great for our morning walks. The staff were friendly and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was cooked to order for our hot items.

                    The relaxed atmosphere, fantastic old building and reception recorded incorrect expiry date for my credit card. Free internet is limited in your room.
