“Very Comfy Newly Refurbished Rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2013

Was there for a week and the newly refurbished room did not disappoint at all especially the new very thick mattress. It was easily the most comfortable bed I have every slept on. So much so I am looking for one for my home. As for the rest of the room I would say 95% are new, so virtually the entire room was make over except the bathroom (but some parts are new) and the closet.

However during my stay WiFi was a big let down. Management should have sorted it out by now.

Nice hotel with some rooms renovated, some waiting their turn. A fair drive from Melbourne but can catch bus. Breakfast can be purchased for in room or taken in restaurant however we went to supermarket and bought our own. there is a small cafe in the hotel next door which does have a reasonable breakfast. Plenty of parking; we had a trailer and car. Room was very clean, a bit of work needed in bathroom but otherwise nice. Wifi is free but very slow....I could only get one bar reception in our room. Restaurant on group serves excellent meals for very reasonable prices.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated one away from the function room. Can be noisy if party is on

We stayed there during F1 weekend to see the event. Motel's website looked good with nicely decorated rooms. Unfortunately we were unlucky ones as our room was old and bathroom need urgent work as the ceiling was cracked, rusted and leaking during rainy period. It was not big deal as we spent all day in central city anyway. What really made me angry was not working WIFI which has not been fixed during our four days stay. Very poor service!!! On bright side the breakfast was very good lots of choices with food and drinks. On the whole pretty average.

Room Tip: Ask for upgraded room!!

We were in Melbourne for a wedding and all the visitors stayed here. Some of the older rooms were in need of a redo, bathrooms etc., but ours a two room family suite looked like it had just been done. The bathroom was very nice and new - no lock on bathroom door, that would have been a good idea. The room was very clean and good aircon. Meals at the restaurant were a very good size, particularly the steaks and the pizzas. Everyone was very happy with the service and the value for money. Free WiFi, good TV's. I'd certainly recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a newly renovated bathroom.

We were just passing through Melbourne and found it very easy to locate and close to shopping centres. It seems to have been upgraded and therefore the rooms are quite modern and confi. None of those old floral bedspreads, but clean crisp linen to match new decor, which includes flat screen tv and free wifi. We loved the restaurant which served us some amazing meals. Also clean and new. Quite a good menu selection and with a nice kids corner. Would we stay there again if ever in that area, yes.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2012

I've been staying at this hotel for business (and a couple of family stays) on and off since 2005. It has consistently proved to be a great place - the location is very handy to our Melbourne operation in Laverton, the rooms and sheets have always been clean, the staff are always friendly and very helpful. The restaurant has recently undergone a major renovation in decor and menu, meals are quite nice and very moderately priced. Rooms are in the process of being renovated, the proprietor is doing a great job of modernising it. It is a good place for business and family travellers alike, and remarkably quiet, given the location next to some major arterial roads. Will continue to stay here when I need to overnight in Melbourne.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room.
