Very over priced. Small pokey rooms and sporadic WiFi.
Way too pricey
Friendliest staff around! Courteous, quick to respond and loads of fun. I loved how one of the receptionists told me I had a strong California accent. I told her someone in Melbourne told me she thought I sounded like I was from New York City. "Don't insult me!" she retorted. I laughed. I grew up in L.A. She nailed it.
Great location, so we could walk to restaurants.
Senior staff in the restaurant were unwelcoming, abrupt and made us feel like we were inconveniencing them. No smiles, no greeting. Requests for bread, tea or coffee forgotten or ignored. Short staffed? Possibly. One poor young girl was on her own in the dining room at one point during breakfast. For the price the food was a huge disappointment. Old fashioned service would be nice in such a historic hotel. Our room was small and expensive with a bed so high that I needed a stool to climb up on. The shower was in a spa bath, which was equally difficult to access safely for someone short and in their 60’s. The Langham in Melbourne has better rooms for less $$.
Great location, very clean, charming period details.
Bar was closed by 9pm. Breakfast selection could have been larger.
