“Could do with some attention”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

A few little touches would make MVV even better value.
In the kitchen a few more cooking utensils would be great then perhaps add those things we all forget at supermarket when on holiday, cooking oil, paper towel and dishwasher tablets.
MVV is not flash but it is more than passable and very good value.

Reviewed 11 November 2013

We stayed here (from Adelaide) for the Melbourne cup due to pricing at Flemington very expensive. There were 6 of us and we had a 3 bed self contained apartment. Tony and his wife (management) are new owners and they were FANTASTIC. Anything we needed wasn't too much trouble. He even drove us to the cup at Flemington in our car and picked us up so we didn't need to organise a taxi as on Melb cup day as it would be near impossible. Its very close about a 5 - 10 minute drive to Flemington. It's location is fantastic, very close to shops, restaurants and the tram. Tony even is happy to loan the $6 tram card so you only need to add the money you will use on public transport. The bathroom was large enough for the 3 girls to have space in front of the mirror. The towels were large and fluffy and the apartment very clean. Has a dishwasher and washing machine and anything else you would need in a self contained apartment. The heater isn't brilliant downstairs (seems to go up) but there is a sofa and lots of cuddly blankets to snuggle up to in front of the TV. Thanks for a fabulous time and going above and beyond. Much appreciated.

Room Tip: Had a room at the back, but this apartment does border on the moonee valley course, non smoking not...

I have stayed at these apartments for both business and also with the family.

The four bedroom offers enough bedding for a large family of seven, with two queen sized beds, a twin bedroom and a single.

The bedrooms are all upstairs and are fairly comfortable, although the single room is quite small. none of the bedrooms have a TV in them (you will have to venture downstairs for this) which can be a nusiance. None of the bedrooms are airconditioned, although a fan is available in one room.

There is also only one bathroom upstairs (no onsuite to main bedroom) and although it is a larghe room there is only a tiny shower space which feels cramped - puzzling since there is so much floor space in the room. For those whom like a large bath though you are in luck.

Downstairs the kitchen area is quite good and serviceable and there is a decent sized table available.

Overall, not bad for the money. The owners/hosts are friendly and ready to help out in any way they can. there is no restuarant on site but a nice tavern just one minutes walk which provides food to suit most budgets, plus Puckle Street, Mt Alexander road is just a short trip by car. The site is also great for the races, being literally on the northern boundary of Moonee Valley race course, with Flemington just a short 10 minute drive away.

Room Tip: A room out the back is much quieter and more private

I had one night in an apartment, arrived at midday and told come back in an hour, room not ready. Came back after an hour and had to wait for somebody to turn up. Checked in and taken to room, I noticed that all the windows were open, furniture was dated and worn as were fixtures. Fridge has a half a plate of food left overs. Bedding was minimal. I would not choose to stay here again.

I travelled with two younger babies on business trip. The area is very convivent with tram and buses. The parking area we made it was children play areas
it is 5 minutes walk from queens park and the public swimming pool. Anyone think that they want to stay in a hotel better not consider this place. As it is somewhat like a townhouse.

I do not agree with the internet charges, as they are working hard on their wifi boardband, and it is up to each individual computer whether they can receive the signal. The staff Emily and Allen is very very friendly, and though internet is a main issue, if you planning on long stay, I went to get a prepay boardband from 3 that is convienient enough..

I lived in the Moonee Valley Views apartments with my family on two different occasions, each for around 6 months! The apartment we stayed in was spacious and comfortable, and convenient to transportation. My family relocated from the States, and never owned a vehicle while living in this location. Because of the fabulous Melbourne transportation, we never needed one. We were a tram ride from Downtown, or a bus to the zoo! The staff bent over backwards to help us out... even during a medical emergency!

The facilities are satsifactory, but the management and location leave much to be desired. It is located quite far from the city or any restaurants or entertainment. You will need to commit at least 40 minutes to get to the city with public transportation.

As for the management, they are liars. When we booked the stay, we were told broadband internet would be included. Upon our arrival, they tried to charge us an additional $25 per day for internet use that was non-negotiable. This daily rate is close to what they would be per month. They finally agreed not to charge us because it wasn't included in the original deal. A couple of days later, Graham, an employee, asked us for a credit card in case of any damages. This seemed reasonable, so we gave it to him.

After we left, we found out a few days later that they had charged our card for using the internet the entire time we were there. What they did was completely illegal. They lied right to our faces and charged us for internet use anyways. I very much regret staying at this place because the bill amounted to 345 AUD extra. Please avoid this place for your own good.

  • Liked — The only thing good about the accommodation was the safety of the neighborhood.
  • Disliked — The management. They are not running a good business.

Since this review was posted the business has changed ownership. None of the previous owners, managers or staff work at the premises nor do they have anything to do with the business at all.

Broadband/Wifi is now available free of charge under the new ownership. No internet usage would ever be charged to any guest.

Moonee Valley Apartments are located only a 5 minute walk from the tram stop and is then only a 20 minute tram ride into the city centre.
