Punthill Essendon Grand Apartments
Reviewed 27 August 2012

Location is excellent for airport or showgrounds. The Essendon cafe strip is a short walk away, and with a good Thai almost next door. Coles/Bottleshop within meters.
Room was very clean good comfortable bed. Desk was however too low so that your knees couldnt go under. Reception staff very helpfull.

Awesome staff, very helpful and friendly. The rooms are in good condition and kept very clean and tidy, serviced everyday by the hotel staff.

The only downside would be the bath screen is not big enought to prevent water coming out when having a shower.

Would get back any time!

The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are modern and have all the necessities such as a microwave, kettle. The rooms are very small however and the TV in the room although modern is very very small, which was very surprising. The rooms are serviced everyday at no extra housekeeping charge.

The apartment has a restaurant downstairs which is excellent for breakfast, lunch and dinner! there is a supermarket across the hotel and there are lots of pubs and eateries around to choose from. only 15min to the airport.

Anyone looking at a short or long stay should stay here. The rooms are modern, the beds are comfy, the staff are great, the internet is fast, it is located 30meters from coles, plenty of pubs and food outlets (if you don't want to cook in the room's kitchen), trams run through directly opposite the site which is very handy for transportation.
I have stayed at other hotels in Essendon which don't come close to matching the Punthill. 10/10 in my travel experience.

Whenever I am in Essendon I always choose Punthill when possible. The only problem is that they book out easily because they are that popular.

Room Tip: Get a 1 bedroom appartment in order to have a washing machine and dryer.

We stayed here as we had an early morning flight the next day, it was ok. The staff are lovely, very nice people, we stayed in a studio room and in was very small. Balcony struggled to fit more than 1 person standing. Beds are very uncomfortable and pillows hard. I hate giving average reviews but the number 1 thing is that it is only 5 mins from the airport and your not paying the huge prices that airport hotels want. Probably wont stay here again but wasnt that bad.

The room was large and well equipped, with a full size stove, lounge area and dining table etc. The whole set up was spacious. Not far from the airport and we got into Melbourne easily on the tram - about 30 minutes (possibly more than usual due to a diversion?). Our room had a fair bit of road noise, but it didn't bother us.
I was there for a conference (held on premises) which went smoothly. Was accompanied by spouse.
Busy pub across the road had good food, but pricey for Melbourne.
Close enough to the airport that the Taxi driver complained bitterly the whole way.

Our balcony was a bit yuk, with rusty aircon units and cigarette butts.

Overall, we were pretty happy with the offering and enjoyed the space.

Has a small but reasonable gym.

Room Tip: Get one facing the courtyard to the back (not facing the noisy busy main road with trams).

My partner and I chose this hotel because the hotels at the Melbourne airpot are quite pricy and we have a reasonably early flight. This hotel is only 15 min drive from the airport and is located in the middle of the restaurant and shopping district and it is not far from the city either. Most hotels in the city charge parking fees whereas this hotel provided free secure underground parking.

It is a newly built hotel apartments. Because we were only staying overnight, we only picked studio apartments inclusive of breakfast.

The receptionist is very friendly and courteous.

The studio apartment is like a hotel room and it has modern decor with all basic facilities. Room is reasonably large and the bathroom is also reasonably large. Bed is comfortable and clean. The only negative aspect of the room was the reverse cycle air con was a bit noisy and both of us didn't sleep well.

The hotel served a large serve breakfast which was great when we had to rush to the airport and we didn't have to find a place to have breakfast

Otherwise it was a reasonably enjoyable stay
