    Convenience

    The lounge in our room was dirty, the bed was not comfortable. Once those things are rectified it is a great spot to stay.

    Location

    1/ No signage indicating office 2/ Only one room key worked 3/ Three attempts by staff before carpark key would work. 4/ Mildew in shower base 5/ Broken bed base. We thought the matress was bad the 1st night - spoon shape - the 2nd night we pulled the matress off and found that a few base slates were broken - left matress on floor where I slept for the 2nd night stay. Reported the broken bed base to office staff the next morning.

    Superb

    It was a good location with a tram out the front. The city attractions were in walking distance, as were the Carlton restaurants. The Reception staff were very helpful when asked any questions about transport, shopping times etc. The room was comfortable and it was a good price.

    The shower was not very hot.
