  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

My partner and I were very excited to be going into Melbourne to watch a show. I used Expedia to search and book accomodation - using the filter settings I chose accomodation with a pool. Unfortunately when we arrived we were told we could not use the pool as it was being used for a function and that on their website it stated that the pool COULD be booked and not available for hotel guests. There was nothing on Expedia stating this and the website does not have details as to when the pool is booked. Breakfast was lovely but won’t be booking again.
