Very good 8.0
We stay here just about every time we come to Melbourne. The location is great. We like not being in the city. There are dozens of restaurants around and markets across the road. My only minor criticism is there is no bench space in the bathroom. Beds are great. Shower pressure great.

Needs a reno.
Hotels is getting pretty tired. Discoloured shower joints and general fixtures. Dust around the corners and even a fair bit of cigarette ash inside the door to the balcony. Over $200 a night is steep now. Don’t think I’ll return. Staff were great as is the location. This was my 3rd time here.

Stayed before so like the Cullen! Only two things to improve: better lighting to apply makeup/shave etc, and don’t like glass walls as the bathroom light on in the night wakes a partner. Otherwise, great room, comfy bed.

Birthday Trip
Thank you to the Cullen for an early check in. We were on our way to Stay & Celebrate my Nieces Birthday. I became unwell on way to Hotel, they were amazing, found another room for us to stay in, checked us in so I could rest. Lovely chocolates for my Niece. We will be back when I’m better.
