Look for somewhere else
Firstly, I arrived with my daughter to check in and I only had digital id, license and passport. The male at reception would not allow me to check in. I asked if I could have a refund and look for somewhere else, he said no. I asked what I am meant to do with no physical license, only digital, he said I must drive 2 hours to collect my hard copy license. Lucky for me, my husband was close by for another daughters sporting even. I had to go online, change the booking to my husbands name and he had to check in with his physical license. The man at reception could not care less and was very unhelpful and rude. The room was also a disappointment. Mouldy bathroom, smelly stuffy room, room filled with bugs, curtains cut half way, an outlook of weeds. I could not wait to get out of there, and would not recommend. It is on Neapean Hwy which isn't a positve either. I will say, once my husband arrived, he had a different male person at check in who was good. I am a hotels.com VIP, and did not receive any of the benefits I was meant to. * Also, attempted to upload photos of mould, curtains, bugs and cut curtains and was unable to....

6/10 Good

Room in need of maintenance. Cracks in walls and ceiling. Ripped lace curtains. HOUSE KEEPING could spare a little more when it come to stocking tea,coffee and biscuits for a room booked for 2 guests same goes for the complimentary toiletries. On the plus side room was very clean and tidy :-) Slightly overpriced compared to other accommodation we have recently stayed at in Melbourne.
