The area
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My family of 3 was picked up from Darwin Airport to be transferred to our Accommodation. The driver arrived in a Toyota Granvia which had plenty of leg room and was luxurious. He placed all our luggage including backpacks in the boot compartment and he gave a wonderful insight into Darwin as we drove around. He was very easy to find at the airport with a large sign displaying our name.
However, upon our transfer from the accommodation back to Darwin airport the next driver in a Holden Stateman Caprice was given the incorrect pickup address which was 15 minutes away from where we were - not so much a problem as we were still on time.
I had to ring the company the day before as I was not advised as to our collection time. I feel that they should be ringing or messaging you with a pick up time for you what you pay. Overall a good and reliable experience.

Almost 50 minutes late, no sms, no phone call, very, very stressful. I just can’t trust them for future flights.

The constant lies when I called their 24/7 number, oh they are 10 minutes away (no, lie) oh they are just parking the car 15 minutes away (no, lie).

Finally when they showed up, no apology, uninterested in proving an explanation. Call the number he said. Yeah, no thank you.

Would never trust them again to make a flight.

Left me and my disabled husband at Melbourne Airport with no transport to city centre hotel. Failed to offer any help. Do not use this company - they are appalling

Do not use this service. I ordered a car for my mom to get picked up from the Melbourne airport after a flight from the United States. While she was waiting for her bags and to come through customs, they left the airport and did not bother to call me (who booked the car and provided my contact details) or her (who they had her number, she had phone service and was talking with me while waiting for her bags). It had been communicated when I booked the car over the phone that it was really important someone could meet her at the exit because she needed help with her bags. Then, knowing there was someone with extra needs arriving and with no communication they simply left the airport. When she exited we had to call Hughes who simply confirmed the driver had left. She had a very challenging experience getting an uber with her luggage. I feel horrible about the whole thing, and so angry I trusted this company. Not only did they leave, knowing this was someone who needed assistance, they did not even bother to attempt to inform anyone they had left and were no longer there.

We used Hughes several times for airport transfers at various cities in Australia. They were always on time, the cars clean, and the drivers helpful and knowledgeable.
I always call ahead to confirm the following day's transfers, and on more than one occasion they did not have my name on the booking, or had misplaced the booking. These issues seemed to be a communications problem between Hughes and GoWay Travel, who set up our tour, but they did not arise with other service providers.
In all cases the issues were sorted out over the phone, but I do advise calling ahead to confirm!!

Left me waiting outside in the freezing cold in the early hours of the morning to catch an emirates flight. I organised an uber as they didn't respond to calls/texts, then had to cancel when they suddenly turned up. Don't use them. Never apologise or offer to refund my uber charge.

One star for the Audi ,minus -zero for Constantinos the arrogant, impatient, rude, driver. Totally set a negative precedent on arrival into unknown city for my family.
Tried in vain to post directly to Hughes my explanation of 1⭐️ But they totally make it impossible. Good businesses take note to correct they’re misgivings, Seems not Hughes. So sorry to say. Constantinos is NOT the man you need .

Failed to send booked Limousine
Without notice sent an old taxi, poor seat, smelly and window stuck
Hughes contracted by Emirates to supply limousine service. Pathetic service
Pathetic communication. Hughes is a joke

I book my airport transfers with Hughes in Melbourne and Sydney. They arrive 10 mins early, send text messages with GPS tracking and vehicle details, the drivers are dressed in suits and the vehicles are nice and clean. I book direct with Hughes or via my travel agent and I have never had any problems like the other reviews. The difference between their cost and a taxi is minimal but you get someone waiting for you at the arrivals area instead of waiting in line at the taxi rank. I've always had pleasant experiences and will continue to book them when I travel.

Paid in advance overseas before arriving in Australia for a luxury vehicle to take us from airport to Hotel. Arrived is a broken down vehicle that was not luxury whatsoever. Estimate turned out to be well below what we were actually charged. When inquiring for a place to go for wild life they suggested the furtherest place possible (thinking they'd get the business) and yet again charge for driving way out of the way, when other options were much closer and much less expensive. The company is bogus regarding their ethical behaviour and would not recommend.
