the hotel was really convenient for my week long stay in melbourne during the Tennis Open. The tram stop is just outside and staff are really helpful in explaining the new MYKI system which is above their role description I am sure!!! :) The room was perfectly adequate and clean, with a kettle and microwave for our convenience even though the room rate was inclusive of a more than adequate breakfast. As usual I have come to expect a slightly dated, maybe 70's decor and this motel was no different with wood pannelling etc. the only thing missing was a bedside table on both sides of the bed but thats nothing really to moan about :)
breakfast was from 0730 until 0930 with about 8 tables or so - proably not positioned for maximum capacity but ok. breakfast was cereal, bread, fruit and yogurt with the option of a cooked breakfast at very reasonable extra charge - although I didnt feel the need to have anything more, everyone who did really enjoyed it.
We had a balcony room which was nice. hotel was quiet with a great asian restaurant called the green field restaurant heading out towards sydney road in brunswick, definately a great feast. car parking was complimentary and there are two large parks nearby to go for a walk if you have the urge. the zoo is nearby too. will definately stay there again.
