Colourful doors and lollies.. service was okay but for what it was I’d look to a different boutique stay first.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Noisy airconditioning
Nice things - checkin and when asked if we were in Melbourne for something special, we said our wedding anniversary and they gave us a chilled bottle of Dal Zotto Prosecco, my favourite. Complimentary minibar with 2 beers, 1 mini bottle of wine and lollies - lots of lollies? Something savoury would be nice perhaps - lollies everywhere in the foyer too. Not so nice things - the air-conditioning was so insanely noisy I could not sleep. No double glazing on windows, therefore, truck noise of reversing beeps from 8 a.m. added insult to injury. Also, to sit there was only the bed - certainly not a hotel to spend time in your room. The bathroom was odd. Sorry - no returns on this hotel. Read less
