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.

    Challenging, but fun. Great way to spend an afternoon extending the old grey matter. Will definitely do another one when in town again.

    Great, fun adventure playground full of slides, castles, sandboxes, an in-ground trampoline, a basketball court, and assorted old (and sometimes broken) toys. Based on other reviews I was afraid it would be a little more dangerous (especially for really little ones), but it was not bad as long as you supervise. My children loved it, so we went multiple times (our lodging was nearby). Not worth a journey from far out, but definitely worth going to if you are nearby. Check their hours though, because it is not open often.

    The playground was very busy this Sunday morning. Small children were running wild, with parents calm with the high fences keeping them from running on the road.

    Really fun experience and Sen and Hannah were very helpful. Would be great if the sessions went for an extra 30 minutes.

    We held our son Jackson's first birthday party here. Everything was fantastic. The communication before the party was great. On the day the staff were very friendly and accommodating and went out their way to make his day special. The food and drinks were amazing, and it was all very affordable. I would definitely recommend this place.

    Our visit to the George Comedy Club in South Melbourne was a memorable one..
    Having ended up at The George Hotel for some drinks with friends, we were informed that there was a FREE Comedy night taking place upstairs.

    After some discussion among the group, we decided to take a chance and see the show. Up some narrow creaky stairs we climbed to a dimly lit little room with a bar running down one side (Excellent news to us, we thought as we wanted more drinks and didn't like our chances of traipsing up the stairs with drinks in hand)

    The room was semi-professionally decked out for comedy.. doorways curtained off and seating arranged in a theatrette style facing a stage and a microphone stand.

    It hadn't started yet, so we awaited the show to begin by getting another round fo drinks from the obliging bar-tender at our almost private bar !

    Soon, the announcement was made that the MC was taking to stage.. and a moment later an animated character cheerfully bounded onto the stage and grabbed the mic..
    Some informal chit-chat with our group soon turned to some very funny moments as we to-froed with the MC trying to embarass him but only for him to embarass us.. this set the tone for the night !

    A number of comedians in quick sucession then took to the stage with varying styles and abilities to get us laughing, but all were quite good and enthusiastic and the different comics made it exciting as we weren't sure who was coming next.
    A Headline act was announced and did quite well with a funny song and some hilarious jokes and dodgy banter with our group.

    A couple more comedians to do some short stints on stage then followed with more excellent laughs and that was it.. we finished our drinks and considered ourselves lucky to have stumbled across such a fun comedy night by chance.

    It runs weekly so we will be back !!
