“Welcoming hotel - social drinks on Wednesdays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

The room was clean and comfortable, staff were professional, helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.
The hotel organises complimentary social drinks and canapes for hotel guests on Wednesday nights. I was on my own and the staff invited me to go over to a group of other guests, making sure I wasn't lonely. I met and chatted to many other business travellers who preferred staying here and said that this hotel made them feel much more at home than others, and catching up with other guests was now part of their social calendars. This speaks volumes, so I would highly recommend staying here.

Stayed 3 nights at the Parkview recently. Very clean and comfortable hotel. Staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Loved the cooked breakfast (yum yum). Will definitely be staying here again next time in Mwelbourne and will recommend to all our friends.

I stayed at the Parkview Hotel for 3 nights in early February (2014), and not for the first time. The location is great, avoiding the mad rush of the inner CBD. All of the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were extremely clean and well-laid out. At one point I even had a chat to the manager who was very helpful in assisting with some travel arrangements for my group. The Parkview Hotel will be my Number 1 choice in Melbourne from now on.

I have stayed her twice now and both times it has been excellent. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the TV reception is good, the breakfast is delicious, and the service is great. It's only a short hop from town and a gap wedge from Royal Albert Park, truly one of the most marvellous public golf courses in the southern hemisphere.

OK, that last comment might be overstating things a bit, but I promise the rest of my review isn't. It's a very nice hotel to stay at and we'll definitely be visiting again.

Travelled with a large group for a golfing weekend and Parkview was organised through someone else. I went with Minimal expectations as I am not really fussy on accommodation on these type of trips but was astounded with the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms, the helpful staff, the selection of Craft beers, all with Breakfast.

The staff had no problem delivery ice to our room for our tired and sore bodies and there was ample room to spread to golf bags and a variety of gear as well as a 2 x comfy Double beds.

Breakfast was well catered and well needed.

Close to St Kilda and the City (short cab which is easily ordered or hailed on St Kilda Road) this was a perfect spot for a golfing weekend.

I will be recommending this to my company for when I travel to Melbourne for Business.

Rooms are great with modern bathrooms and plenty of room. The location was good for us as it was close to the city and golf courses.
Breakfast was included in our rates and I thought it was excellent.
The staff were all friendly and very helpful.
Lastly the selection of beers available was terrific.

I stayed there last weekend on a golf trip with a group, and despite the hotel being extremely busy with tour groups, cyclists and others, it was brilliant. The buffet breakfast was sensational, and you can't go past the pancake machine!

Friendly and helpful staff, 5 minutes into the city and 5 minutes to the Nepean Highway and the sandbelt golf clubs.

It is now my No 1 choice for accommodation in Melbourne - and I have stayed in a lot of places!
