High recommended.
Excellent value for a lovely home-away-from-home apartment. Very happy with it and Birches will be my first option for future visits to Melbourne. A major element of Birches' success is, though, Alan on Reception. Can't remember the last time I dealt with someone so good at their job: he's an asset to Birches and a Front-of-House All Star :-)

Was disappointed with the size and age of the hotel.We had a sofa bed in the lounge /kitchen area which made it cramped,and there was no doorway in the main bedroom.
