My daughter and I, as well as 2 other kids stayed here during a trip to Melbourne for a sports event that they were competing in. We had previously booked somewhere else, but it was completely inappropraite for kids.
The staff at the hotel were exceptionally helpful and calming after I had spent nearly 4 hours trying to find accommodation for 6 nights in an apartment in the St Kilda area and was stressed. They had a 1 bedroom apartment available with a pull out sofa in the loungeroom which sounded perfect.
We found the master bed very comfortable althought the sofa lounge matress was probably only suitable for kids and not adults.
The bathroom was bright and very clean. The only thing was, it looked like it had a spa which we were excited about, but it definately did not operate anymore so we made good use of the indoor pool and spa which were great after a long day out.
The heating in the apartment was thermostatically controlled and looked fairly new, although it was in the main loungroom and kitchen and did get a bit chilly in the bedroom overnight.
I found the outside patio from our room a nice place to chill and have a coffee while the kids enjoyed some easy access to fresh air.
The internet charges very reasonable being able to purchase either a download amount or a timed amount without download restrictions. The connection and speed were great.
There is a restaurant on site, but seemed very expensive just for a burger. There is a menu in the room from a local Pizza and Pasta place which delivers and then they will charge back to your room. What a great service and great food!!!!
There was a full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, hot plates and oven. The fridge was a small bar bridge and was not in the main part of the kitchen but in a small part of the loungeroom. The 1st night was a bit annoying with the noise of it going on and off but the kids got used to it after that.
We had no problems with getting a car park each day when we returned and most of all we found it very quiet and peaceful.
Definately will stay again next time.
