The breakfast was just like home I needed yog and a bit of extra fruit. The location could not have been bettered. It was very handy to the South Yarra Train/tram. Many restaurants. For a solo 65plus female a very safe area and lodgings
Did get a wee bit tired of hanging up the bathmat! This would be my only gripe.
Beautiful old building (1881), kept in original condition. Rooms are clean and tidy, although a little small. So central to Melbourne CBD, trams trains. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The desk is manned 24/7 And it's value for money.
If you on crutches or a wheel chair it's no good as there is only a majestic old stair case to get up/down stairs. Continental breakfast is a bit lacking but still sufficient to start the day.
I didn't realise there was breakfast available with toast and cereal without ordering the breakfast box. So I missed out - could have saved some money there. Mostly the bathroom shared was pretty clean - people just need to be considerate and mindful for the other guests. Like hang the one and only bathmat up over the glass door to have a chance to dry! Perhaps with the towel issued I would suggest ones own bathmat as well, for health reasons - fungal issues that may be present with some guests. Apart from that I would recommend anyone travelling to Melbourne that is on a strict budget, wanting a safe and friendly environment and a great location near trams and the South Yarra Station
Location is great
Toilet was dirty all time !
Was very clean and staff were polite and helpful.
Nothing all was good
