                  • Excellent location within easy reach of the city, the bathroom is equally as nice and the staff are courteous and professional; and breakfast is fine.

                  • Excellent location near river and close to city, also, staff tend to knock on the door once without saying anything and just walking in. The bathrooms are adequate and the rate is very reasonable and included parking and breakfast.

                    The hotel airport transport option was very expensive at $72, the spa in our room was dirty.

                    No better than in the restaurant.

                  • Tram stop just out the front made easy to get to and the river walk itself is very pleasant. The location is great and nice hotel I stayed at on a work trip to Melbourne. Staff are very helpfull and friendly, the bed is comfy and the rooms are fine. Food is good.

                    The service was slow in this area and the rude receptionist was the worst and really lowered my opinion of the place. The breakfast was uninspiring.

                  • The payment system for the tram was in a flux and was expensive and our room was quite comfortable and had a balcony overlooking the courtyard and river. The bar area downstairs was really nice, footy atmosphere was good and the reception staff were very helpful, courteous and friendly. The two bedroom apartment was not as big as anticipated and the buffet had a great selection of tasty breakfast items. The conference facilities were excellent including the catering.

                    Hotel is very overpriced for you get much better value can be found in melb.

                  • Tram stop just outside front door and the room from the balcony along Bridge Road was interesting. Location was good, the sitaution on the river was lovely the staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel was very comfortable and the buffet breakfast was fantastic. The service was amazing, bed was great and the steak from the restaurant was nice.

                    Curtains closed.

                  • Shops & restaurants brilliant, convenient to the trams and i really liked the bridge rd. Lovely setting on river and reasonable parking rates. The pub across the road was fantastic and service was excellent. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, good blackout curtains and the Amora had all three, the buffet breakfast in the morning was tasty.

                    The charge for use of wifi seemed excessive especially as many hotels provide access free, the staff are rude.

                  • Convenient location to my business, easy tram trip to city and worth trying one of the cafes only minutes walk away. This hotel is very good, nice distance from Melbourne CBD without being directly in the hustle and bustle, excellent customer service on check in. The rooms are clean, staff friendly and courteous breakfast very enjoyable and would have no hesitation in staying again.

                    The building looks a bit old and worn on the outside, bar is extremely poor, the food is average, and I felt a little limited in the choices.
