  • 2.0.Poor

    Room etc. Ok. BUT $100 was taken out of my credit card and I have had to phone several times and contact my bank to get money returned to account. Very disappointing and ruined what could have been an ok stay. Dishonesty or incompetency. Not sure which.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Good things: The room was huge! The bed was very comfortable. It was a convenient location, and the free onsite parking was appreciated. Bad things: It could get a bit noisy at night, especially when there was music or large crowds downstairs. There were no spare blankets in the room for when it got really cold on my third night there. Also on my third night, the shower temperature seemed to go haywire. I had it set to a comfortably warm temperature, then it turned freezing! When I turned off the cold water, the pure hot water was like ice... for a few seconds, then it was scalding again. This carried on, alternating between hot and cold for several minutes until I gave up. The check-in person charged my credit card for $100 instead of placing a hold on the security deposit. It then became a major hassle to get the funds returned into my account. The reception is advertised as being open until 10 pm but if you call after 2 pm you'll be told they're only open from 10 am - 2 pm and to call back tomorrow. If you call between 10 am - 2 pm the answering service will tell you all about their Christmas opening hours and then terminate the call without giving you the option to leave a message. TL;DR: It was a lovely stay, until my third night. Hopefully they can rectify the issues that caused the poor rating.

    For what we wanted the Plough Hotel served it's purpose. We would happily stay again, but just note there are no lifts.

    The property was perfect for my needs.....The room is a good size, clean and easy to access...... Ok there's no gym, pool and resort style amenities, but for the quick fly in and out of Melbourne it was great....close enough to the airport and city as well....
