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.

We had booked a table of 14 at the FTG Hotel. We had been there several times before, so we knew what to expect. Previously, the food and the service was very good which made for a very happy lunch. However, this time was quite the opposite. They had cut down on the dishes that were standard on all previous occasions. No baked salmon, no potato bake, no cauliflower/broccoli gratin, no caesar salad, no bread & butter pudding. These are the only dishes that I noticed but there were probably more. Not only had they cut back on the assortment, they had also cut back on the quantities displayed. There was nobody carving the meat so was required to ask for assistance. There were no vegetables which was requested and needed to wait while they were being cooked. Others needed to ask for the apple crumble. But the final straw was that there was no custard, again needed to be requested. The kitchen assistant came out with a supermarket carton of cold custard and poured it into the container (which is normally contained with heated custard). I did speak to the manager Jackie expressing my disappointment as we were used to better. She immediately went on the defense advising me of the learners in the kitchen & the staff shortages, telling me this is what I would expect from supermarkets, chemists and the like, which is totally irrelevent but no apology. If I was being served in an A la' carte restaurant, yes of course I would be expected to wait, but on delivery of my meal I would expect everything that I ordered. This is a buffet, where one helps themselves, so one would expect the food to be there to serve yourself with. I can only put this down to a disorganised mess and another visit would be out of the question, and will be taking our custom elsewhere.

The room was large and overall comfortable, though a couple of issues. Firstly, there are 2 beds in the room and we intended using both, however there was only one spare blanket. Second, our bathroom had no towel rail except for a 30cm one adjacent to the sink for the hand towel. Lastly, for such an otherwise modern room there is no toaster. I booked directly and afterwards was emailed a survey. I took the time to respond, thinking it would assist them (otherwise why do they ask), mentioning the above 3 items. I received an offensive email back telling me the rooms have towel rails (the ones in the website photo's might but mine definitely didn't), that had I wanted a spare blanket for both beds they would have provided one had I asked (except that Reception closes at or before 8pm and you don't realise before going to bed) and pointing out the room has heating (not a substitute for a blanket on a bed I'm afraid, not many people sleep with the heating going all night). If they didn't want honest constructive feedback they shouldn't ask for it, and I sorely wish I hadn't wasted my time on them.

A budget room, nice and tidy but for $150 , I didn’t expect to see someone else’s leftover trip to the loo and a raised seat when I walked into the bathroom! Maybe a desperate cleaner…?? After a 10 hour drive I just wanted a nice steak and a quick beer, but for $25 I got a lukewarm porterhouse and stone cold chips, and a glass of the excellent Furphy ale that frankly tasted like it had been drawn through 1880’s cast iron plumbing. Fair enough it’s a bit of a pokie palace but these days I reckon that’s completely unacceptable. Maybe give this joint a miss.

The room was spacious, very clean, the bed comfortable, the bathroom nice and big. there is plenty of parking and the bistro has great food. Overall it was very good. Our only complaint is the lack of reception. There was no-one there when we arrived at 5.30pm so we had to go to the bistro of the adjoining tavern to check in. There was no-one at reception when we checked out so we had to go back to the bistro and check out there.

30 + 31/10/2019 Room 9. Yes would stay here again. But some things you need to be aware of. There is no breakfast facility on site and no toaster or microwave. There is a basic breakfast pack available FREE IF YOU BOOK DIRECT. The hotel bistro (separate building) is excellent, perhaps the best quality smorgasbord food I have ever experienced, and a discount is applied for resident guests. Room was large with good ensuite, good shower. Comfortable beds. Beds are on casters so can be risky, We have found this in some other places and as an ex business owner I fail to understand why the hospitality industry has not realized how they are leaving themselves liable to an injury claim - imagine the outcome if an older frail person goes to sit on the bed and it moves away and they fall. The room and linen were clean, the only fault I could find was the ensuite window frame needed a clean.

We checked in for 2 days while attending a wedding in the Dandenongs. It was close to some good food and shopping by car and was well priced for the facilities offered. Parking was just outside the door which was very convenient. Room was very large (was a triple occupancy) but was great for the two of us. Only downside was a shared internal door with adjacent room, so some TV noise etc was able to be heard from the other occupants.

Spent a night here while visiting friends in Ferntree Gully. A budget motel but the room was large and bathroom was modern. The room was very clean and bed was comfortable. Note there are no lifts only stairs to upstairs. They do have a resturant attached which we did not use but was recommended to us. If you are wanting a cheap stay this is the place. Highly recommended.
