Fabulous 8.8 From 556 reviews

Very good 8.0
great, but could be awesome
Lovely hotel. Rooms are day and quiet. Internal windows so don’t get any natural daylight on the 1st floor. Not sure about other levels. Pool and gym great. Room service request for glasses that weren’t in the room wasn’t received. Check in was awkward. Guests were told they couldn’t check in even though their name was o. The room. Not a great start.

Fair 4.0
Dark hotel, no rooms to outside
Very dark hotel since having no windows to the outside. When you walk out of the hotel it takes some time to acclimatize. The hotel really makes you getting disorientated. Considering it is a 5-star hotel the bathrooms are very simple, room not able to create any ambiance since lights are very sharp (white light) and not able to dim, beds uncomfortable. Also disappointed by the service and attitude of some staff members. 2/3 restaurants were closed during the public holidays without announcing this properly and even 1 restaurant still had the mess from evening before. No options to watch Australian open for 1 day and staff said to watch in the room. Big compliments to the concierge!

Club Lounge lacking!
Christmas Day stay! Club, very disappointing, no Christmas decorations, few wine choices, no champagne, evening hot canapés very small selection. Not as good as Sydney Intercontinental club in the evening. Breakfast was delicious and great selection and staff very attentive, but unfortunately very short staffed.

Long weekend in Melbourne
Friendly staff, clean, goodlocation with trams just nearby. Loved the atmosphere! The market bar was lovely. Our only suggestion would be to put different door handles on the bathroom door as it was difficult to open and people with arthritis might have trouble opening it. Overall though a wonderful experience!

Wanting more
I arrived early and the service counter was able to check me into a room straight away. Such a relief. I did have the room with a disability bathroom. Which is totally fine, but I had a little trouble keeping the water heading out the door to the bedroom carpeted area. Little design flaw I guess. But my room was beautiful, spacious and of course what I was looking forward to most was the bed. I had such a great night sleep because I was so comfortable. I almost called off my meeting the following day because I just didn’t want to get out of bed. Lol I made use of the facilities as best I could. A reminder... don’t plan on being away from hotel too much.. enjoy everything it has to free and take the time to look after yourself. Next time I want to enjoy a dinner in the atrium.

Great, but room for improvement
Booked a month ahead for family of 3 to share a room. Nice room, but they ran out of rollaway beds as the hotel was fully booked. Had to have a mattress made up for the teenager. Shower door didn't close properly. Lucky that the previous occupants left their carton of milk because there weren't any pods of milk/creamer to go with the complimentary tea /coffee. Pool and spa were great though, and the lovely buffet breakfast was good value, while the staff were friendly and super helpful.
