Travelled with family
The room was well equiped but the sink had food waste in it. The door to the balcony was really heavy and when pulled the handle fell off. Beds were comfy. View was great. The area is a bit sketchy at night but is a good daytime walk to South Melbourne market. One issue is that a week after I stayed the hotel took the $150 credit card guarantee out of my account. Am trying to contact them about it.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Seems if you booked through a provider like expedia you will always get a south facing room. The one bedroom is so small the bedroom door cannot be shut. You would need to move the bed hard up against the walkway to close the door then you would need to leave it there if you wanted to open the door.

Travelled with family
Liked: Property conditions & facilities
Beds were very comfortable and great views of the city. Noise was well managed given it was so close to the freeway and other major roads. Not good for a person in a wheelchair! Parking is terrible and no accessible rooms. Would not recommend for person with a disability. Few dining options nearby, but supermarket just across the road.
