Good but room for improvement
Check in was quick and easy and room had a beautiful view. Some negatives, there was dishes in the dishwasher when we arrived, the shower head was broken and didnt stay up high it kept sliding down, the bed was too big for the room so the door to the beroom didnt close and was difficult to walk around the end of the bed.

Location matters
Good location and friendly staff. The noise of the freeway made is difficult to sleep at night so would suggest requesting a room that faces the city instead. Great to have tram and supermarket very close by and easy five minute walk to casino end of South Bank.

8/10 Very good

The room was noisy from traffic on the Westgate in the early AM hours with trucks. But I think it was due to my bedroom facing onto that area. The other issue was the curtains in the bedroom didn’t have a pull down so as soon as daylight came the room was very bright which made it hard to sleep.

Great stay, confusion regards parking as was told had to prebook but it doesn’t say that anywhere on website (yours or there’s). Sliding door to bedroom broken. Otherwise comfortable room and good spot to explore from.

4/10 Fair

The location and access were great. I have never stayed in accommodation where you couldn’t shut the bedroom door because of the bed or get to the dressing and hanging space by crawling over the bed.
