“Swans play at the MCG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Overnight stay for a Swan's AFL match in Melbourne. Saw this hotel in a write up we read in a magazine in a medical waiting room. Easy to get to on the 96 tram, from Southern Cross Station, tram stop directly over the road from the hotel. Hotel room very small, but very well appointed. Great little bathroom. Comfy bed. After the match, bought drinks from the hotel bar, and took them to a lovely quiet lounge with a fire glowing. Breakfast was very tasty and ample food to eat. Went for a walk in the morning, down to the beach. Unbelievable amount of restaurants in the street alongside the hotel. Would love to return to enjoy them. Found the staff really friendly, and very helpful.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room, which it certainly was, on the 2nd floor. Windows are double glazed, whic...

Hi Swanniejenn!

Congratulations of receiving your 50th review! Its fantastic you enjoyed your stay here and took advantage of all the lovely surroundings Middle Park has to offer. A beachside walk before settling in for a home cooked brekfast sounds like the perfect Sunday morning activity!
We hope to see you next time the Swans play down in Melbourne.

We stayed here last weekend for a night & really enjoyed it. The rooms are small but exceptionally well kitted out and we enjoyed drinks in the bar before leaving for our destination as well as a light lunch earlier in the day. It's quite contemporary and although the rooms are small everything is really well catered for. If there was a negative & you'd really have to look I would say the service at breakfast was a little slow but that's being really picky.........

We try to do everything we can to make sure the rooms are kept modern and while we cannot do much about the size of the rooms, we can always try to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you next time you are in Melbourne!

I normally stay in the city but a friend had recommended the MPH so I made a booking - great value at $145.The first room I checked in to had no table to work out so I requested another room and this was quick and easy,the new room had a table but no power point at table ? The windows can't be opened which makes the room a little stuffy.Nice bathroom and shower and a great little mini bar and extras box.I ventured downstairs for dinner and decided to have dinner at the bar - the staff were nice and the food was great - I had the duck liver parfait which was superb.I went to bed quite early and can normally sleep on any bed but the one here was like a cricket pitch with lifeless pillows so this ruined the stay for me.The breakfast is served in the dinning room and included in the room rate - this is a nice touch.I would go back if I knew there were other beds that I could actually sleep in.

Hi Audist,

Thanks for reviewing us and venturing out of the CBD to give us a try. Our bar meals and both cheap and delicious and well worth taking advantage of and freshly cooked breakfast in the morning is always well worth taking advantage of. I apologise for your discomfort with the mattress, next time we would like to offer you another room and hopefully the mattress will be more to your liking.

Thanks again and we hope to see you in the near future!

My partner and I came here to stay and celebrate his birthday. The room was $145 incl breakfast, first impressions of the hotel was clean, well maintained and a lovely area( 5min walk from the beach) reception was helpful and very pleasant to talk with, are room was very small, we didn't mind but would suit just a single person perfect, the room 206 had quirky little things that made us laugh. E.g the bathroom had a window that u could see your bed and vice versa like my boyfriend could see me shower lol. We had dinner at the hotels restraunt, an it was AMAZING!!! Lovely atmosphere great quality food and at a good price, we had an appetiser to share and are main meal with wine and it was $118. Breakfast was just as scrumptious with the same great produce, all and all I I was back in melbourne I would stay here but in a bigger room( things to consider, there didn't seem to be an elevator an we had to carry r suitcases up 2 flights of stairs) great workout tho! Good wifi connection in the room and free! And free parking great bonus :)

Hi Shiboopi! Thanks for your very detailed review of our hotel and happy birthday to your partner!! Your right about the room having some quirky little features that help to enliven the place up and free Wifi is something we think should be standard everywhere in this Internet age.
Im thrilled you enjoyed both your dinner and breakfast and next time you come i will make sure someone is always on hand to assist in getting those bags up the stairs.

Thanks again and we hope to see you back in Melbourne soon.

Very comfy room in a convenient location in a gorgeous street of shops and cafes. The bed was comfy, the shower great and the staff were friendly...HOWEVER...upon returning to our room each evening we were greeted by an unidentifiable bacon-like smell (probably from the kitchen downstairs) which had seeped in through the unsealed louver windows in the bedroom and bathroom.

If this doesn't sound like your cup of tea (it wasn't ours) you should avoid Room 203...perhaps the hotel's management will consider putting in sealed glass windows to rectify this.

Hi LordLadyButtongrass,

Thank you for taking the time you review our hotel, it is definitely one of the more interesting headlines we have come across! After you checked out I did a little bit of investigating as room 203 is by far our most popular room (being the biggest) and I had yet to have that problem occur. One of the windows above the bed had been left open just a touch which may have been enough to let in some of the bacon smell (a great smell to wake up to, but maybe not to sleep to!). I have ensured all staff are across having those windows firmly closed to prevent any more of the kitchen aromas wafting through.
Thanks again for your feedback and good luck in your future travels!

Older hotel with beautifull modern furnished rooms and tasty breakfast included. Our room was on the small size, but bigger rooms available on request. Great location near cafes and two blocks from the beach. Rooms have double glazed windows and very modern bathroom with raindrop shower head (very relaxing). Staff very helpful and caring. Free parking available in local area. Prices very reasonable .Owners have provided small extras in rooms, which always adds value to the whole package

Room Tip: ask for a bigger queen room on booking

My wife and I recently stayed at MPH for the F1. You really couldn't pick a better location! Downstairs, through the bar and across the road and you are in Albert park. The food was great (sportsmans breakfast is massive) the service was great (Matt really does work hard).

The area around the hotel is very nice and you can quickly get downtown on the tram.

The room was a little small, but we really didn't mind and wouldn't hesitate to book again if we come back to the F1

Hi L H!
You are exactly right, its impossible to get any closer than directly outside Gate 1 for the Grand Prix. Im sure your stay was made even more enjoayble by this fact and also the great atmosphere that was present throughout the week. When you are waking up to a lovely freshly prepared breakfast each morning that is a little bonus.
Thanks again for taking the time to review us and we look forward to seeing you in Melbourne for the next GP!
