Spacious rooms which are well set out with mod cons. Breakfast and valet parking is included in the price. You are also spoiled for choice activities which are part of the club. You have access to a pool, gym, library, and billiard Rooms. It is now our preferred accommodation if we ever visit Melbourne.

We stayed here for the Grand Prix as a last resort as all the other hotels we would normally stay at in Melbourne were aksing for ridiculous rates ($800 and upwards for 1 night). My husband and I had our nephew staying and wanted a connecting room which was great. As members our room was $225 a night and the connecting room $265 a night. The rooms are very spacious, bathrooms are also very spacious with all the mod cons you need. We were very suprised and enjoyed this hotel right down to the excellent buffet breakfast that was included in the rate. We will be staying here everytime we return to Melbourne, absolutley fantastic hotel!

Stayed here for one night as part of a conference. Although the hotel looked like an office block from the outside, it had character.

The rooms are indeed big, with a walk-in closet and bath and rain shower. Unfortunately my room faced another office block and I was unable to change or doing anything with the curtains open. It had a huge comfortable king-size bed, and a large flat screen t.v. I was almost in heaven.

The breakfast was above average, with nice shot glasses of yoghurt and smoothies. The coffee/tea service was a bit slow even though there were several wait persons walking around. I had to hail them every time one of my parties sat down or needed a refill.

The checking was smooth and professional. The concierge looked after our bags before and after with much courtesy. The older chap sitting across the reception (I later realised it was a membership desk was a bit of a snob when I asked him some questions. “Ask the concierge” was his reply to everything.

It was a bit expensive for me at $265 per night with breakfast. Members get cheaper rates.

Overall it was a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
