    Superb

    It is a really friendly place that always goes out of their way to give us an early checkin and a ground floor apartment.Our dogs love the place too - they can come to Melbourne with us instead of being left in excile at home.

    It is a littkle noisy, but then we live in rural Vic and absolute silence at night. Hence we do notice traffic noise.

    Exceptional

    Comfortable, affordable - lady at desk was really friendly and helpful and welcoming - got the feeling that all is well cared for and that someone cares. Close to where we needed to be. Good to have parking and cooking facilities

    Fabulous

    The size of the apartment meant we felt we could spend some time relaxing in the room, as opposed to staying in a Motel room where the isnt a seperate lounge room. Full kitchen, well equipped bathroom and lots of extra bedding. Location was perfect for where we needed to be for the weekend and the staff was really nice.

    The acceptance of dogs into units is a concern.

    Room looked tired. Interior car park facade looks like a block of council flats in the UK.

    close to transport

    We didn't expect 5 star but we felt this hotel did not meet fundamental hotel requirements. Sofa bed advertised was really a rock-hard futon/lounge, not comfortable for sleeping. Shower was generally ice cold or scalding hot and shower curtain was too close so it was difficult to shower. Our room was on level 2 and since there was no lift, we had to lug our suitcases up/down 2 flights of stairs. The carpets & lounges were badly stained, the air con hummed so loudly we couldn't run it. We voiced these issues with the manager. We go to F1 Mlb each year and stay in serviced apartments. Last year we had a 3-bdrm at Sth Yarra which was actually cheaper and had washer/dryer, dishwasher, daily servicing/cleaning of room (not just week days)
