This accommodation house has certainly improved !! Its been a very long time since we have visited and its a good value for the price. The rooms have all been updated and its great for proximity to the Melbourne CBD. The Covic-19 practices are all in place and I felt protected and safe. The heating was tricky until we finally worked it out as I'm a shocker and love it over warm. Very quiet and can't hear anyone else from other rooms or from the hallway. Very comfortable beds, and the bathroom was recently renovated. Parking is tricky out the front, but they have in house parking but you must book this and reserve. Good value for the location.

I stayed here for 2 nights after my vacation interstate. Rooms are pretty basic for what i needed. Hotel is close to one of Melbourne’s major transport hub southern cross. There are many small eateries, bars and pokies near by this hotel as well as crown casino about a 5 min walk away. The downside of the room is it takes 15min for the hot water to heat up for a shower, the room A/C does not have heating function but thankfully they let us use a plug in heater.
