He was absolutely amazing! So very helpful and kind. Booked a spa room but got upgraded to a 2 bedroom, was disappointed about not having the spa but these things happen. Gentleman at the front desk ensure I had a balcony instead.

Friendly staff, quick check in and out. Good distance when attending AFL at the MCG. Unfortunately certain things over looked with cleaning and no bath plug left in room. Breakfast buffet was underwhelming with a long wait in between top ups.

Would recommend for families that enjoy south bank and a short stroll to the city centre. If catching a cab, need to make sure they are coming the right direction it's a long way around if they are on the other side of the road.

everything of this hotel is very good: staff, swimming pool, room, kitchenette, beds, wardrobes, bathrooms. even the carpark seems ok if you have skills. just i have encounter the worse pillows in this country. they are low, hard but without support, which defy law of physics. sleep on a rolled up towel maybe better.

Good Evening Jain, Thanks for the review, I am surprised to hear about the pillows - please let us know if you encounter anything like this, it seems extremely out of character for the hotel. 2 weeks ago we have refurnished 4 of 8 levels with brand new pillows, the rest of the building will be complete during May, this...
