Miss l v clarke, gb2 night trip
Birches Serviced Apartments
Pleasant venue
Staff and were very amenable and pleasant. Dir cut phone to taxi service from reception was handy and taxis always arrived promptly. Room was comfortable. The bathroom was a little bit dated fittings-wise but clean. Can't really find fault with anything and would certainly stay again if back in Melbourne.
