    Fabulous

    Beds were comfortable. Good area.

    The room heater was very noisy. The sheets on the single beds were not tucked in securely and came away easily. Would have liked breakfast included in our deal for the price.

    Hello, i was very happy with our room and its facilitys. I did think that the bed was too soft and that the lounge and chair although welcome, could have been a little more stylish. Thankyou

    The buffet breakfast was fantastic. The choice of movies on offer was a great selection. And the location was perfect

    Superb

    The staff were helpful and the location was excellent. It was very handy to Her Majesty's Theatre, which was the purpose of our trip to Melbourne. It was also very close to transport and the main shopping presinct.

    It was slightly noisy, but what else should you expect when you are in the centre of a major city.

    Fabulous

    Loved the central location. Great food, drink and service in the restaurant/bar. Room spacious and well catered.

    Room service food including breakfast was cold when it arrived. Rydges member but the promised 10% discount was not applied to our account. Still trying to get this sorted from home - two phonecalls made - the second one "Josh" promised to call back the next day, (should have been Wednesday) but still haven't had a call and it is now Saturday! Grrr....not very happy.

    Location

    Maid service was terrible our rooms were not cleaned until very late in the afternoon for the 5 nights we stayed at the hotel. Rooms were not that sound proof with both street noise and passageway noise.

    the room was advertised that it had a jacuzzi which it did not and that the pool was heated and it was not.

    Fabulous

    The supervisor on the front desk on the sunday & the carpark attendant.

    The trainee clerk on the front desk on the sunday. The Bath plug for the spa that was dangerous and almost useless. The plug for the sink, absolutely useless. The size of the spa, too small.

    Speedy check in and out. Convenient car parking available. Friendly staff. Nice central location accessing all of cbd on foot

    Tired and shabby decor. Low car park access difficult for a 4x4.

    Exclusive

    The room was bigger than expected, nicely decorated and the bed was incredibly comfortable (maybe too comfortable!). The staff were very friendly, and nothing was too much trouble for them.

    This is not a 'negative', but a suggestion to put fans in the bathrooms because after a shower it takes a long time for the condensation and humidity to dry up.
