This was my 3rd stay at the Breakfree Bell City. This is a great spot to stay if you are just stopping through Melbourne or have a car (parking is only $9) and are willing to adventure into the city (tram is just around the corner) I treated myself to a King room this time for the extra couple of...

The food was quite good at both dinner and breakfast, the bed was comfortable and the shower was hot. Breakfast thrown in was also good value and there is plenty of parking. The room was compact and it would help to have some coat hangers in the wardrobes.

You just don't find accommodation this price so close to the city. Rooms were basic but still quite nice and a great view of the city. Parking was accessible and cheap and the Chill restaurant offers some delicious food.

Room was clean and bed comfortable. The room we received had power points very close to the floor so that phone chargers could not be plugged in to charge mobile phones. Breakfast was included and was very good.

Staff were very courteous and helpful. Facilities within the complex were great. Have stayed in both Mantra and Breakfree and would recommend either depending upon whether you just want a comfy bed and clean room or whether you want a flashier room.

This motel is ideal for convenience, especially when just needing somewhere to stay however the maintenance in my room had been poor. Breeze constantly coming through window, seal gone, staff seemed aware of it when mentioned but no offer to fix or change.
