Melbourne Parkview Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 May 2014

The room was very nice and above expectations. What lets this hotel down is that the breakfast had a very ordinary selection and the staff needs to be better trained. It was like amateur hour at breakfast. The dinning room couldn't handle the number of people and the eggs looked very undesirable. I asked for fresh eggs and was told that I had to get them from the buffet even though there was a sign that said that people should speak to waiting staff for fresh eggs.

I also don't like any hotel asking for an extra percentage use a credit card. 1.5% really isn't much but it seems like a money grab and put me off immediately.

The car park is very difficult to maneuver in and thankfully on the weekend there was street parking.

Overall the hotel is OK but the staff need to be trained better.

Used the weekend refresher. key factors were free parking and Buffet Breakfast included. Tram stop is out the front and very frequent. easy to get in and out of the city. Did not wait more than 5 mins for a tram and the ride was about 10 mins.
Room was comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Heard trams at night but not loud and they did not wake my wife so that was fine.

reception staff should be less grumpy, specially when ringing for a cab . I got faces and sarcasm and did not appreciate that. Other than that the food was awesome and Room service personnel were great.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Parkview. The service was excellent, the room was clean and quiet. Late checkout and breakfast were included. The tram stop to take you into the city or to St Kilda is nearby. Overall an excellent place to explore Melbourne from.

Position, great. Beautiful beds. Bathrooms very small. Hard to get to the toilet behind the door, but great shower, beautiful towels, big and fluffy. The bed was one of the best we had slept in at good hotels. We had a standard room, looking towards the city. We had dinner in the Restraurant and it was good. Girls on the desk were very efficient and didn't waist time. Vert pleasant.

Room Tip: Look over the city. Very quiet. Only on 2nd floor.

Recently stayed & enjoyed our stay very much. Would have to say the only criticism to be the carpark was pokey thank goodness we had a small car. We left & came back to find the carpark full & we had paid for parking which we didn't even get to use. We ended up parking on the street.
Rooms were very well presented & quiet. Plenty of room except bathroom were a little on small side.

Enjoyable stay thanks
