Dear Lovefromdarwin, Thank you for your review and as discussed with you in person on Tuesday I am very sorry this has occurred during your trip. An error occurred during your initial payment which caused our system to charge you twice. This should not have occurred and I am sincerely apologetic this has happened and your stay was negatively affected....

We have been staying at the Cullen regularly since soon after it opened, particularly when we visit family in Melbourne. We have consistently found the Cullen staff friendly and helpful, the location is convenient and the facilities are excellent. As a constructive comment, we would like to see better reading lights for the beds.

Fantastic hotel. Comfortable beds and pillows. Great little extras like tea and they don't overstock the bar fridge so you can't fit your own things in there. Good on-site cafe. Well located with great market, shops. The Prahan market is across the road.We also went to a theatre improvisation show that was lots of fun.
