              It is worth seeing the Parliament House of Victoria, which was the first seat of the Australian federal government, climbing the Eureka Tower which provides a panoramic view of Melbourne, strolling along Docklands, a popular shopping area, or the Federation Square. Immigration museum on Flinders Street reveals the moving stories of people from all over the world. Melbourne museum houses 7 galleries.

                Great location, near the free city circle tram meaning very easy access to shops, resturants and the sites of Melbourne

                We ran out of sugar one evening and then the following afternoon when we arrived back to the hotel the stock of sugar satchels had not been replenished, other than that all good

                After discount the rate is ok. Not with the full rate. Room is small but clean.

                Aircond units are outside so a little noisy. Water bottle has strong plastic smell. Was charged for, I have to ring back to reverse the charge. Not keen to hear your comments.

                Very close to city centre. Great if shopping is one of the list of things to do while in Melbourne

                Newspapers could be provided free for the room price charged. Not every hotel staff is friendly or helpful.

                The food is not very nice, there was no ironing board in my room and not enough blankets on the beds. When I did get an ironing board the iron was useless and kept setting off the smoke alarms. But the staff were very kind and couteous.

                General condition and cleanliness of room was of OK standard

                *Curtains in room didnt shut *Toilet seat wouldnt stay up, had to hold up. *Shower over bath didnt drain, had to shower in pool of dirty water *Underside of bed doona had large dirty stain. *1 of 2 lifts was out of order for entire stay. At one stage both lifts were out of order and had to climb stairs to level 7 on TWO occasions. VERY DISSAPPOINTING STAY, considering I most certainly didnt want the cheapest room I could find, and was prepared to, and did pay extra for a better motel. Also chose a Superior King Suite rather than the most basic room on offer, hoping that this would be of better quality, condition, and cleanliness. Was so far from reaility. Will not stay here again, and will not recommend.

                I chose this hotel for it's outdoor pool facility and was extremely dissapointed to be told it was out of use on my day of arrival. This information should be on the website as it is extremely misleading. Also, I was not told $100 would be put on hold in my account, this was also dissapointing as I hadnt planned on this money not being available to me during the week.

                We paid for a king size bed and got two single beds pushed together. Each time we moved, the beds would part and one of us would fall in the craves. The mattresses had big brown stains, which we had the pleasure of seeing every time we did the bed. The bathroom still had hairs from the last guest and had not been cleaned in a few days.

                Excellent location, size of room was good.

                Bed was very hard&noisy. We were told we had been given a complimentary upgrade however I do not think this was true, rooms are very basic.
