Good 6.0
Wonderful staff, uncomfortable stay
Staff were really friendly and helpful, but the hotel was having renovations which were on the floor above me which were noisy and was not informed when booking. The window of my room faced the air conditioning units of the neighbouring building which were loud even with the window closed. The only full length mirror in the room was on the inside of the wardrobe door, which I could not open properly because the door hit the bedside table. Also the walls were pretty thin as I could hear everything going on in the room next door, particularly one night at about 2:30am, ultimately not the hotels fault but it made my stay uncomfortable.

Poor 2.0
Awful, don't stay here, go elsewhere in Melbourne
Awful, we were given a dingy disabled room, my wife had very little light or work surface available to apply make up. There was told on the ceiling in the bedroom. The guy on reception suggested that if we needed more light we could use the gym. Eventually after claiming they were full they moved our room. But I would never stay here again. Our abiding thought though was, if that is the best room they can offer to a disabled person then it is shameful.

Great place to stay
The hotel was excellent, even with the renovations going on. Nice rooms, spacious and clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. Central to everything. We had a great stay.

One night stay
The hotel was excellent in all areas. Only negative was that the walls are obviously quite thin. While we couldn't hear regular noises, we could hear the toilet flushing and the guy who yelled at someone. The breakfast was really good. We'd definitely use this hotel again.
