We made a late booking based on location and sleeping a family of five. The two bedroom apartment with lounge area to sleep additional person was ideal. We were also able to obtain parking underneath which everything a lot easier.

nice hotel, great location, too bad the air con in our room wasn't working - it made the weekend a bit hot and stuffy, however they moved us to a new room without too much fuss.

We enjoyed our family trip into the city to experience what it had to offer for Christmas. The room had great views of the Arts Centre and we loved the breakfast and the indoor pool, perfect for this cool start to the Melbourne summer. It was close to everything. Kids were happy and so were we.

The front desk service was exceptional and the restaurant for breakfast and dinner was also very good both for service and quality. However the room was not up to standard. We had leftover things from the previous visitors. Also only the one small tv in loungeroom was a little disappointing, normally a second tv in the bedroom is expected
