      Kimberley the Manager

      the late night room Service is absolutley terrible worst possible garbage

    • Family with children

      Gorgeous views, great contemporary clean room, great services at a great price

      We were left without any towels etc one night which was a major inconvenience on discovering this on getting out the shower!

    • Single

      very comfy Manhatten double room..very clean, good bathroom, good views, quiet location, close to tram stop. the staff were pleasant.

    • Group of friends
      8.8

      Facilities were great, security were quick when an issue was present.

      The room cards continuously de-coded themselves, therefore having to continously go downstairs to get it re-coded and you would have to re- code every card you had each time one card stopped working. This is the only hotel I've stayed at that hold onto your deposit for up to 4 days after check out-I don't see why they cannot unauthorise it immediately like everywhere else.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      The great beds very comfortable and relatively no noise from other rooms great views

      small bathroom mould around shower didnt know that you had to pay $100 or $200 dollar bond did not like this as it was unexpected

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      It was all good thanks. We are very surprised and happy to get a complimentary upgrade of our room, which was very good for the public relations aspect of the hotel.

      Just a couple of practicalities could be improved on: 1. If you wanted to watch tv whilst sitting in a chair, you had to get a crick in your neck as the tv was mounted so high up on the wall, and couldn't be angled further downwards. One doesn't always want to lie on a bed to watch tv. 2. The microwave was high up above the fridge, and to add to it, the door which covered the microwave, opened outwards and downwards on a hinge, which made it impossible to use the microwave - it was just too inaccessible.

    • Single

      Very comfortable and well-designed room

      It is out of the central city. Transport links are good, with tram, bus and train all not far away. A taxi to the airport was $37.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      The accommodations suit the family of 4 and the kitchenette serves well for our family.

    • Family with children
      4.2

      Easily accessible North side of Melbourne

      Decor, powerpoints, bedside lamps not working, Scuff marks and stains.

    • Family with children
      6.6

      Comfortable room size and equipment, small kitchen inside, great view on the city, individual air-con panel, cafe downstairs so do not have to buy an expensive ($18) breakfast.

      Bathroom: too small bathroom, shower with a curtain only and with dirty silicone joints, too small washing basin, inadequate lighting so shaving difficult, no indication if the toilet was disinfected other: $200 bond upfront, additional fee for using credit card, if not using a credit card you need to pay up-front for the entire stay (and you haven't even seen the room yet)

    • Couple
      7.0

      Room was well equipt but we really only used the room to sleep, were out all days, evenings.

      Is a little hard to navigate around the many hall ways. Some staff were very un inviting (Kat in the Chill Bar) especially. I would reccommend to friends in the hope they received a more pleasant welcome from staff.

    • Single
      9.6

      Hotel was lovely and modern. Very clean.

      I felt that the front counter person on arrival could have been more helpful.

    • Family with children
      6.2

      buffet breakfast at Chill was excellent

      staff were not very pleasant to deal with and thought they were quite rude when we checked in and were not very professional or helpful.

    • Family with children
      6.2

      Good location, I liked the open feel when entering motel.
