Hotel room was generally rundown. Walls needed patching, painting and cleaning. Bathroom is tiny and it was all terribly tired. Would not classify this as 3 star. It wouldn’t take terribly much to improve some elements and give it the appearance of somewhere not so depressing. Would not recommend it :(

Just be careful staying here. During the second lockdown, not sure if it was supposedly people in isolation, or with no place to stay. However either way the "guests seem to run the place. Gathering in groups, no masks, and obviously running the place. The "security" had no control. They walked off or got in cabs. So perhaps not the best managed for COVID situations. A bit like what got us into the second lockdown. So even if in future, am very disappointed with the lack of control, and all to make a few bucks!!

Response from John P, General Manager at Crest on Barkly Hotel
Responded 28 Aug 2020
Dear Anne, Thanks for taking the time outlining your concerns. We are working under government guidelines assisting people in need and in crisis. Most importantly keeping them off the street. As you know Covid 19 does not discriminate and keeping people safe and in doors goes a long way to supporting the community. Sadly we cant control their movements. Crest hotel group is not part of any hotel quarantine program. Our guests get on with their normal lives obeying the current stage 4 lockdown restrictions. Mask wearing can sometimes be a challenge as to social distancing. The government has provided onsite 24/7 security to monitor this and ensure everyone is doing the right thing to the best of their ability. We provide free face masks and gloves to all our guests. There are also hand sanitiser stations in place throughout the property along with the necessary social distancing signage. The hotel also follows a strict COVID safe cleaning policy. Working with this type of accommodation is challenging and certainly not financially rewarding. Our reward is knowing our dedicated team delivers the best we can through this pandemic for the community.

Located not far from Albert Park the hotel is quiet modern & easily accessible by car or public transport. Parking is available on site. The rooms are small but clean & well appointed. Unfortunately my bed had an extremely hard mattress so did make fit goodnights sleep. The walls are not well insulated so ask for room away from others to reduce the noise especially if close to downstairs lobby. There is a restaurant on site & numerous eateries nearby if you choose to eat out.

Very poor parking was told there was parking only to find none was available until after 10 pm. The door to the on suite wouldn’t close due to a broken hinge. Guests across the hall where very loud, staff where aware but did nothing I had to ask the guests to at least close the door to their suite as the staff did not want to get involved! Booked for 2 nights left after the first the breakfast was great and the lady working that area was great as well

We stayed here for 5 nights in a 3 bedroom self contained apartment which sits next to the main hotel (which is shown in the main picture on this page). It was quiet, we rarely heard other guests and heard no traffic noise whatsoever. The apartment was good sized with a king size bed, a queen size bed and two singles in the three rooms. The lounge consisted of a 6 seat dining table and two large couches and TV. There was also a TV in the main bedroom. The bathroom and toilet were separate and the kitchen had everything to make a proper meal. It was lovely to come home each day and find our beds made and new towels in the bathroom. Beds were very comfortable, better than what we have at home! We ate at the restaurant on our final night and it was delicious. I highly recommend eating there as service and food was of very high quality. Our only concern was the parking is rather tight and at times difficult to find on site. The underground parking is very small with columns everywhere so if you have a large car or are not the greatest parker you could dint your car. The outside parking for the apartments is a little better but there is only about 10 spots. I am unsure of how many apartments there are but we didn't feel there was enough parking either way. Public transport is just around the corner by way of trams so for most people you wouldn't need a car like we did. We would definitely stay again.
