The Melbourne Parkview is undoubtedly a superior hotel.
Accommodation: Beds very comfortable and room very clean though maintenance to a bench was needed in the corridor that lead to the bathroom. It had been sat on and everything slid off it. The bathroom was very tiny - so much so that to get into it necessitating entering shower alcove. Incidentally we are not large people! There was the usual supply of soap, shampoos etc which for the weekend stay was useful though the quality of the supplies were only average and tissues ran out and were not replenished.
Staff: Very professional and obliging with the exception of an assistant manager who was clearly disengaged.
Food: Very good; The breakfast buffet was stunning especially the freshly squeezed orange juice -do it yourself. We ate twice in the restaurant at night because the first experience was so good.
Location: superb. trams to the city at the door
Most of my disappointment lies in this hotel's participation in the 'luxury escapes' promotion and that the accommodation did not measure up. The photograph on the web site showed a room with two queen sized beds and correspondingly larger than that we were allocated on the first floor. The amount we paid (50% discount) for the two nights seemed to be what the accommodation was worth. In that same 'luxury escape' there were four' two for one's' which proved to be all offsite, one had finished and the balance available through other means like the daily tram pass.
