Really really bad hotel, the one bedroom sky view/ city view apartment is as small as my bathroom and the room was so dirty with grease everywhere it smelt really bad. There was no parking and the customer service was terrible, not accommodating at all. (We were told we would be put in one room and were given another) Ended up booking another hotel to stay in that same night for the duration of our Melbourne holiday. Definitely would not recommend, especially if you are after a hotel to be able to feel comfort and relax in.

Location was excellent and pool, gym and spa were great, when they could be accessed. For example, spa door was locked on the first night around 7pm when it should have been open and reception didn't know or care on how to fix it. Apartment itself is very small and no room to move around the bed in the second bedroom. Biggest failing is the lack of supplies- no plug for kitchen sink- so how to wash dishes when only 1 sachet of dishwashing powder supplied for a 4 night stay? Also how to hand wash dishes with no plug nor a sponge/dishcloth and only a paper towel supplied for that?? How does one use this for 4 days and wipe bench etc? Reported to reception but response was another paper towel sheet supplied. I bought some sponges, but still pretty hard to wash some dishes without a sink plug. No clothes airer only a washer/dryer comb which was very noisy and didn't have instructions for use with no help provided when asked for, and then how does ne dry items not suitable for the dryer? Honestly for the price paid, I'd stay elsewhere next time. Lighthouse, if you are trying to let your unoccupied apartments because of lack of international students, then you must research what supplies are required and supply them for the price you charge. Also be a little more helpful to guests.

We loved our stay at the imagine lighthouse. The only downfall, not towels being given fir the pool so you had to use your only towel for the pool then when you come back and had a shower you had no towels so we had to try and use two towels at the pool then two at the room for showers.
