“Nice get-away”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Spent two nights at Caroline Springs due to a business commitment. The staff were very friendly and you could see that the hotel was very well managed. The hotel manager was very evident and politely checked whether there was anything else the hotel could assist with the smooth running of event. We were very impressed. The location of the hotel is lovely over looking a small lake with nice walking path. The food for event was what had been ordered, but could have included one healthy option, nothing special. The café and the bistro food was all of good quality and the service was polite and efficient. We had a very nice meal with our family and grandchildren who loved playing in the children's playroom. The accommodation was large with a very nice bathroom, it was clean and very comfortable with small balcony. You can upgrade to a lake view which was really worth the extra cost. All in all a very nice experience.
Thank you to the management and staff and particularly Lauren for her warm friendly smile.
We look forward to running another event at this venue.
Many thanks

Room Tip: Worth a little extra to face the lake and the city view.

We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our holiday. We have visited this hotel previously and enjoyed our stay. Staff are always helpful and rooms are clean large and comfortable. Breakfast in the café is lovely with table service instead of lining up at the breakfast bar like some hotels. Travel to city in 25 mins via freeway. Quality restrant available which I recommend.

Located next to a lake in the suburbs 20k out of the city. This is a good hotel for relaxing after work. Service a little strange. If you want a desert from the cafe instead of the dining area you have to get it yourself. or you ask to split the bill they struggle. for example. But the staff are friendly just working within their constraints.
Less than 60 rooms a little pool and gym. If you have a view over the lake the sunrises over Melbourne are worth observing. But the other way just views shopping mall.

Clean, modern, comfortable hotel. Rooms everything you would expect of this standard of hotel; comfie bed, large shower, lake view from balcony. Service at Reception friendly, professional and nothing was too much trouble. Signage for hotel and carpark were abysmal, investing in some exit signs would be a good idea. Carparking is free though; a bonus if you have friends or family visiting you.

Bar was a nice place to sit inside or out and relax, but there was no room service?!? With restaurant and bar food available downstairs, surely a kitchen-hand to deliver to rooms wouldn't be too hard (a bit of a shame, really - room service in PJ's is a luxury when travelling). Bar supervisor was a nasty piece of work; bitter, unfriendly and ridiculously suggested that changing ONE ingredient in a cocktail would incur a "by the shot" charge and would be $30 for a drink.

The fire alarm went off twice and the second time went for 5 minutes with no announcement. Thankfully, I had seen reviews about regular fire alarms and told other guests that it was likely a false alarm (luckily, it was!). I went down for breakfast and was kindly offered free breakfast for the fire alarms going off. Lovely gesture, but why they didn't slip a note under the door advising guests of this? If I hadn't have gone to breakfast at the hotel, there would have been no compensation?

Hotel is by a lake and across from a shopping plaza with restaurants nearby. I suppose people choose the location knowing it's in the suburbs (read: middle of nowhere), but it's worth noting.
You really need a car to get around, there is no direct transport. Hotel is non-smoking and it's not allowed on balconies either. I would stay again for the right price (around the $110 mark).

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view room away from the lifts.

Our group of 4 people enjoyed breakfast here on a Sunday morning. We chose this venue as we are Accor members, and we were certainly not disappointed. I had a Spanish omelette. My meal was well presented and very tasty. Others on our table ordered the breakfast burger and eggs Benedict, which were all good size and enjoyed by all. meals were served quickly and by a waitress with a smile on her face. We are already making plans to return.

First off, loved having the free undercover carpark onsite. Made parking easy and was one of the reasons I decided to stay here. First reaction to the hotel going into the lobby was that it was architecturally beautiful. The view of the lake was a great touch and everything was so new and modern. Despite this, after a long trip into Melbourne from interstate, i was a little disappointed with the service and attitude I received from the gentleman at front desk. He didn't seem interested in his guest at all and was more concerned with checking us in as quickly as possible to get it over and done with. not one smile was seen frm him or his colleague next to him. In all honesty, I was happy at the carpark was above reception so whenever I returned I didn't need to walk past it but instead just take the lift straight to my room.

The room was spacious, very well set out and clean. However I wouldve liked a bigger tv. It was a tad small for my liking. The bathroom was bigger than most places but had a tendency to smell ever so often. It smelt like sewage was coming up through the drains in the floor which was very unpleasant. This led to me having to leave the bathroom door closed at all times.

Another thing that was disappointing was that there wasn't a public ice machine that we could use or room service that could deliver to us. when calling front desk for some ice we were told to go downstairs to get it ourselves. This may be how the hotel has always been run but most other hotels have a public ice machine that we all share or they have staff who will deliver it to us, be it housekeepers, food and bev staff or even front desk staff.

Overall the hotel was good, beds were comfy and rooms were clean but more guest focussed staff and more pleasant smelling bathrooms would have made my stay better and would change my 3/5 star rating to 5/5 star rating.
