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.

Excellent apartment so long as you do not want to sleep. Many apartments on the railway line and rail crossing with constant ringing of bells, rail noise and honking of train siren for trains in both directions. No double glazing on windows indicates lack of care for paying guests. Requested move to street side when booking weeks before stay, but not honoured and request during stay treated similarly. Advised next time ( wishful thinking) they will advise 48 hours prior if street side room is confirmed, which would leave you 48 hours to find alternative accomodation….not helpful. Unless you can get a street side room, would not recommend this place.

A very empty space, no ornaments, no clock, dining table has some burn damage and coffee table has chips all the way around it. Feels old, well worn and 'cold'. Not a welcome 'feel'. A vase here or there, or another picture on an empty wall would make it feel more homely. Not a home away from home. On train line side so quite noisy.

My partner and I had a wonderful time! Lovely staff, and very clear check-in instructions (we arrived outside of reception hours). Great location, very close to shops and not a far walk from the beach. We loved the room itself - the layout was great and the room was very clean and comfy. We especially loved the smart tv in the lounge area, as we could access our own streaming services! We’ve stayed in a few different hotels and have never had this before - so so great! Some other reviews mentioned the sounds from the train, and I’m a light sleeper so I was anxious about this, but this wasn’t an issue for us. Could have been the positioning of our room, but we didn’t really hear the trains too much. Our only nitpicks: - There could have been more tableware, we couldn't locate a bowl in the cupboards (but we also didn't ask for one at reception, which we probably should have done) - Instead of one solid king bed, our bed was two twin beds pushed together. This was slightly uncomfortable, but again we did not contact reception to see if this could be changed. All in all, we loved our stay and look forward to returning!

Well equipped 1 bedroom apartment in excellent location. Spacious, great kitchen amenities, washer & dryer, underground secure parking and walking distance to supermarket, shopping precinct of Church Street, restaurants and Brighton beach. Others have said the apartments are noisy but our apartment was extremely quiet and we barely heard the trains. Highly recommended.

From the moment the manager answered the phone, I knew I was in capable hands! Our organised accommodation was cancelled at the last minute due to COVID19 and we had to find something quickly and dog friendly. From my experience, when a place is dog friendly it is not very "human" friendly. Caroline Serviced Apartments offer exceptional accommodation, excellent facilities in an ideal location that keeps the guests and the doggies happy. We had two nights in a studio apartment that included a very well stocked kitchenette (the best assortment of knives and kitchen utensils in any place we've rented), a good bathroom with L'Occitane amenities, washing machine and dryer, a king size bed, FOXTEL and a balcony with table and chairs. The location is central to the great shopping strip of Church Street with a mass of choices in restaurants and take-away and a few minutes walk to the Brighton train station. You are also walking distance to Brighton Beach and the famous bathing boxes and you can enjoy looking at many beautiful houses in the area. If you don't need to stay in the middle of Melbourne, this accommodation gives you a real taste of a beautiful Melbourne seaside suburb. I highly recommend this accommodation and we'll certainly be back!

There are three types of apartments: Apartments that face Male Street, apartments that have no external view, are dark and have frosted glass in their sitting room, and rear facing apartments which look over a railway line. I stayed in an apartment which looked over the railway line, and while the apartment itself was great – spacious, well laid out, everything worked, a comfortable place to stay, it was, as other reviews have said, ridiculously noisy with the trains. The windows are not double glazed and so if you leave them open to get fresh air then you suffer trains going past and blowing their horns, since the railway line is very close to a train station and the trains announce their arrival every 10 minutes or so during the day, and every 20 minutes to half an hour through quite a bit of the night. So if you were going to stay here, fine, but make every attempt to ask for an apartment overlooking Male Street and not anywhere else…But I’m told the apartments have a 95% occupancy rate, no doubt because of their location and basic cleanliness and layout, so you need to book ahead…

Pro’s Location is ideal being only 100 mts from the Main Street with eateries, shopping , Pub and train station. Apartments have aged well and still offer reasonable accommodation. Con- would like a smile and welcome from reception the young lady just didn’t seem welcoming or interested. Being so close to the train line its really noisy late into the night and early morning. Half moon pub is basically next door so rooms facing the train line can listen to free music and yelling until late into the night. Maybe double glazing could help. I wouldn’t suggest this side of the building if you want it to be quiet. Expect to be charged extra for parking

Was welcomed by the friendly lady, Pam. She quickly shared with us the directions to the main shopping & dining streets as well as to view the little penguins near the beach at around 9.30pm. She also checked with me on my next stop after here, and made sure that my route is good and with lesser traffic. How sweet!
