“Modern & Confortable”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The Punthill Hotel offers clean, quite modern rooms with comfortable beds and good facilities, including a modest guest gym. It's easy to find, being off the Princess Highway and central.

We opted for a one bedroom serviced appartment which was equipped with a modest kitchen, good laundry facilities and separate bedroom. Everything worked and was in good condition.

Secure parking is including,

The hotel appears to have a minimalist approach to staffing. This said, we did not find service lacking and the rooms were well maintained and clean.

Our experience was positive and we would use this hotel again.

Although my stay was for 1 night, I trusted online reviews and booked this hotel this past Wednesday night. The gentleman at the desk was very helpful and welcoming, the room was brilliant, spacious and very comfortable. It had a small kitchen which had an OVEN AND A WASHER!! Awesome right there, the kitchen was very clean. The Bathroom was spacious with a comfortable shower recess, also had a clothes washer and a dryer in the bathroom which is great for people staying 2 or more nights. The tv lounge was comfy and the bedroom was great with a built-in wardrobe, again great for those staying a few days on business or holidays. This is pretty much a small apartment and it was great, not a flaw in it. There is a brilliant restaurant downstairs which you can access through the lobby, great service and dining. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the Dandenong Plaza and if any of you are fitness lovers like myself, it's a 10-15 minute walk to Doherty's 24/7 gym on Cheltenham Road. Will definitely book again in the near future. For $20 more (I stayed at a second hotel) the quality in room difference was a big difference. I highly recommend the Punthill on Lonsdale.

Stayed at this hotel for one night during a business trip. Nice clean room, restaurant on the ground floor and cheap internet access ($3 per hour).

As for the Dandenong town, it was like a ghost town after 5pm on a Monday.

Dandenong is an interesting city - a great blend of cultures, nationalities and personalities. In the midst of this melting pot the Punthill Apartment Hotel is a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle outside. The management of the property is low key but sufficient to enable it to operate efficiently. The actual apartment we had was great - spacious, well equipped (stove, oven, microwave, dish-washer, washing machine, dryer, etc, etc. There was plenty of crockery, cutlery, glassware and cookware as well as washing liquid, laundry detergent and the usual bathroom amenities. One of the great features was the comfort of the king size bed - really great. The easily accessed undercover, secure parking was an added bonus. Will definitely stay at Punthill again.

I stayed at the PuntHill in Dandenong for 2 nights as I was undertaking business in the area.

We flew into MEl and there is a Dandenong Bus Shuttle that took as directly to the PuntHill from the Airport cost is $30 or so - and worth it.

On arrival the Punthill looked efficient and business-y with what turns out to be the great Beletti's Cafe and Restaurant right in front.

I had a 1-bedroom apartment. On walking in, I was impressed. Spacious, logical, well appointed and kitchen. On further inspection - washing machine, dryer, walk in shower, coffee plunger and easy to use TV(s) and aircon.

As a biz traveller my stuff spreads out a bit - the work table could be larger and I swapped the not-so-sure-if-its-steady swivel chair for a pod chair that happened to be there.

So, management - you might want to consider that biz travellers do need a safe and largish area for work.

There was a round dining table but I couldn't get power cables to reach etc etc.

Saying all of that I worked on the extremely comfortable sofa.

I also did a heap of washing - so arrived back in SYD with my laundry done!

The guy on the down stairs desk was extremely helpful, friendly and informative.

The Beletti's Cafe and Restaurant (separate management) is a REAL find with high quality food and beverages

I would definitely stay again.

This was my first stay at Punthill Dandenong and I thought it was a good business hotel and good value for money. The reception is really just a key collection desk and is staffed intermittently after business hours. The italian restaurant on site is excellent in fact our business group ate there every night with a good diverse range of dishes at affordable prices. It has a small gym which is adequate for a light workout. Its not a great suburb Dandenong (crime wise) however there are real efforts by local government to beautify the surrounds. Try for one of the one bed rooms in contrast to the studio if travelling solo or as a couple.

Room Tip: Try quieter rooms at the back

We stayed over the Easter weekend. Would like to have been advised that the restaurant would be closed completely for the whole weekend, and only a skeleton staff (of one person) would be on the desk. Having said that, it meant the car park was relatively empty, which was fantastic.

We had a 1 bedroom apartment and were placed on the 7th (top) floor with a nice view up the main street, which has some great lighting effects at night. Sadly also on the Friday night the locals use dit as a drag strip. But that only lasted a couple of minutes at about 1am. We never heard them again for the whole weekend.

The apartment is not large, but it's great having the separate bedroom , lounge area, dining area and kitchen area. The washer and dryer in the bathroom were very welcome. The king sized bed was absolute luxury, and had a soft mattress topper, and a selection of pillows, so it was quite a pleasant sleep in a dark and quiet room.

The shower head gave a relatively fine spray, but was hot and relatively strong.

The car park is on the same level as the foyer, so carrying or wheeling bags is easy. When checking out we borrowed one of their luggage trolleys and loaded up the car. Other reviewers have mentioned the dubious area you drive through to get to the car park, and I agree, it doesn't seem totally safe. I don't think I would walk that area at night.

There is an IGA supermarket just down the road, which is very, very handy.

Wifi is available, but is not free, so we turned out mobile phones into hotspots - a great way to get wifi.

We booked through an online agency and avoided their credit card charge.

Would have no hesitation recommending it, because it's well located, well appointed and like coming home. It has room to move, a good kitchen and washing facilities, is secure and quiet. Walks all over a motel room.

Room Tip: Rooms over the main street may have traffic noise, but rooms over the opposite side will have train...
