                  • Pool area is truly magnificent and fantastic stay could not fault anything. The rooms are quite large and the restaurants are superb as was all the staff. Also the congress facilities seem to be good.

                    Breakfast que long.

                    The internet service and speed was not appropriate.

                  • The location is fantastic and the hotel attendants turn up every night for turn down service every night without fail. Staff are good and beds are comfortable. The mini bar is well stocked also, lots of restaurants available in Crown complex and facilities are excellent.

                    The view is not any better elsewhere in Melbourne, i assure you, the rooms do not have any complimentary water.

                  • The location was great, the food you can choose from all the places was awesome and the staff were friendly, professional and efficient. The rooms were luxurious, as an everyday swimmer, the pool was excellent and buffet breakfast Was perfect for us.

                    The view over Melbourne is disappointing.

                  • The city view was fantastic and the wonderful decor of the whole area available to us was unbelievably welcoming. The service was excellent, staff very polite, checkin and checkout exerience was fast, also my air conditioning stopped sending through cold air one night was disappointing. The breakfast was great, the swimming pool was big and glorious.

                    The most expensive room in the hotel, graffiti on walls stained bath all for 735 dollars and just the pillows. Not much limited for hairdressers other than the spa.

                  • Great view of Melbourne and within walking distance to many attractions. The hotel was amazing, the staff were excellent and the room was clean and well maintained. Bar sevice was superb and pool complex was fantastic.

                    Bad customer service and the small TV set did not hurt either.

                  • Scenic views all around and CBD just a bridge walk away. The bathroom design is very nice and staff are helpful. The room is spacious, good work desk and curtains work well to keep the light out.

                    As a luxury hotel i think should have supplied free wifi, tv in shower is very low and the robes weren't even soft. Np spa expect more for reptation.

                  • Lovely view, service lacked that little something and central to Southbank. Very friendly staff and luxurious bathroom. Good food available everywhere, many choices for dining and i live in regional victoria. Luxury facilities.

                  • Nearly all the rooms have spectacular views eyeing yarra river and the design could be more open and functional.

                  • The view is the only good thing and for real nice buffet breakfast, go and stay at Sofitel Melbourne.

                    The rooms are badly lit and always felt dingy and dark.

                    The kettle in our room was a bit dirty.
