      • Older travelers

        I liked the size of apartment,the bed was excellent, having a balcony was a must, very good overall.

        Ithink the connection fee of $11 a hour for using my computer was away over the top for someone staying in the complex hence i did not use it & i think it should be looked at.

        Thse apartments are very comfortable and clean, serviced every day. The staff are friendly and efficient.

        The kitchen could have been better stocked with utensils. There was no can opener, peeler or sieve and no cleaning cloths provided.

      • Older travelers

        The room size was bigger than we expected. Very quiet area for a CBD location on a busy long weekend. Staff were very pleasant to deal with and helpful with our requests.

        We couldn't fault anything. Definitely stay there again.

        I liked the Comfortable feel of the room, it was luxurious, nice and quiet, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast buffet was great.

        The Parking we were recommended by the hotel Concierge was behind an old church and appeared to look extremely unsecured and unsafe.

        The apartments are adequate. The hotel is well placed for the free circular tram service.

        The hotel is not in the the better area of Melbourne.

      • Older travelers

        Location was great for exploring the city and getting around on trams & buses. Facilities in the room were excellent. Very quiet.

        Mini washer & dryer or drying lines would be good.

        I liked that you could cook your own meal, the location, the very clean rooms, and the helpful staff.

        The rooms were a bit small and there needs to be more cutlery and cooking utensils. But the cleanliness overrides that.
