Individual guest reviews

  • Couple

    i liked the location of the hotel. we had a concert at rod laver and we walk to the concert. also had a great meal in the resturant.

    the only thing we didn't like was that the room was very warm and we had the AC on and it didn't make a difference.

    I thought it was well overpriced for what I got. I was not impressed with the hotel, the facilities or the staff at all. I will not be going back there.

    Good having two rooms with the interconnecting option. Great location for us as we were visiting Rod Laver Arena. Plus only $7-8 ride in a taxi to the city. Hardly worth bothering with the tram if there is a few of you.

    Expensive, room not overly clean. Uncomfortable beds, (spring popping up through matress on one!), hole in bathroom wall and noisy as our room was right near train line. Rooms were also cold and thermostat didn't work properly in our room. Bistro/restaurant downstairs had terrible service and not made to feel welcome. The staff seemed to be reserving half of the tables and very preoccupied with that rather than serving the guests they had in. Meals were actually quite good though. Wouldn't recommend or stay there again myself.

    It was close to the mcg

    The toilet didn't stop running. There was a half eaten kit kat above the door when we entered the room

    The convience of being so close to the Rod Laver Arena, where we saw a show, ease to get to, happy with the stay.

    No price list for snacks, I had to ask for milk for coffee and there was no option of skim milk. Parking is very tight but managable.

    Friendly service and assistance from all

    Was not impressed with the fact that you had to pay extra($22.75) for a parking space,then even less impressed that one could not book a parking space as a guest there,so one was left untill the last minute to find out if one had a parking space there,not good enough,there was also mould inside the shower cubicle.Would also book there again when there is a footy match on at the MCG,to much bother to get there by car.

    the location

    old furniture, chipped paint, stains on carpet, too expensive if its not going to be refurbished often

    • Average rating
  • Group of friends

    Comfortable bed and good shower.

    Curtains did not block out much light and the lifts broke down and I had to walk down 8 flights of stairs with a arthritic knee causing me high levels of pain for most of the night.

    Close to the Rod Laver Arena and nice restaurant onsite.

    Requested both rooms of 2 bedroom apartment to have queen size beds as was travelling two married couples, was assigned one room with twin beds and the other a queen bed, this was rectified once I complained about it and moved to another room.

    The proximity to the CBD and the gardens; The view from my room of the Fitzroy Gardens and the city skyline.

    I don't often use hotels and it took me a while to find the main light switch. This probably reflects more on me than on the hotel.

  • Family with children

    The suite was just wonderful and very modern for my daughter and I and great location to Rod Laver Arena. I will definitely be staying there again with my whole familywhen we visit the MCG during the footy season.
