Spacious room with large double and a single bed, storage, table and 3 chairs. Equipped with iron and board, extra bedding, toaster and tea making facilities, TV, Internet available, bath/ shower. Regular housekeeping who were very friendly and helpful. The aircon /heater is remote controlled which is handy for the 4 seasons weather that can affect Melbourne.
There is a very good restaurant within the attached reception, conference and Tabaret room. They have various events and cabaret on in the main building. There is also a large drive through liquor store on the entrance lot.
There is plenty parking but be careful when coming off main road to the driveway as the dip in the road at the entrance can catch the front of the car. Best not to access straight on, take slow at an angle to avoid problems.
A short drive from here to Croydon railway station and you can enjoy a carefree, car free journey into the CBD. Remember to buy a MYKI card for travel on Bus, tram and train systems in Melbourne area. In all, a good location in south eastern suburbs for access to Mount Dandenong Viewpoint, Lilydale lake and shopping centres.
It was a good place to use as a base, especially when visiting relatives but wanting a bit independence.
