The apartment is well located and is near to Flinders station. Apartment also has a great view of the Shrine of Remembrance and the Botanic Apartment was clean and very well presented. Parking was free for the weekend.

A 10 minute walk along St kilda Rd into the CBD. A clean and spacious apartment in a great location. Car parking available, friendly, helpful staff. We arrived after midnight , however we were given clear instructions on how to enter the carpark and accomodation after hours.

Good value, suitable location, clean and well presented. We would stay there again without hesitation as it was very convenient to our conference location. The parking was a bit tight but at least secure.

overall all service was great but the room was a bit "tired" A problem with the room was addressed immediately. No service on Sunday was a bit funny as the problem was on Sunday and we had to wait till Monday.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff were the main feature. Great beds, good gym, superb view of Melbourne CBD from the living room.

Had to juggle a little with the small...
