The room was great, service was aussie friendly and the restaurant served nice dishes, and the spa, sauna and pool was just we needed.

                            Slow toaster and no decent coffee.

                            Service and facilities are poor, the bathroom was quite small and outdated and is in need of refurbishing, the restaurant is extremely overpriced for breakfast. A spa would have been nice.

Design elements of the intercontinental, we liked the old building and the club facility, at the lobby and the lounge the wireless is perfect. The staff are very helpful, work desk facing TV No long wait for elevators and good service and a nice range of food.

                            The breakfast meal offering was not of the standard expected of a hotel of your reputation and room was too small and there was no romance about.

                          • Convenient location to see Melbourne, well attended taxi rank right at the front door and hotel is very beautiful and has history I liked. The old buildings are very tastefully renovated, the exteriors and the atrium are nice, staff there seemed happy to be of service. The rooms are spacious and lots of great restaurants close by. Not really a good spa to relax in.

                            The bed was uncomfortable and breakfast was likewise hugely overpriced. Pool was rather small.

                            The swimming pool area not inviting area too hot, easy walking distance to everything and service can be a little slow. A bath in the bathroom would have made perfect and limited bar lounge facility. The restaurant alluvial has a card that is less than basic.
