    Love the pool for some morning laps, but was a bit disappointed by the location.

    Efficient friendly service. We had room 2904 which was really nice indeed. Only issue with the room is I didn’t feel like the balcony was able to be used due to the extreme traffic noise from the freeway. However this didn’t effect my sleep at all as the sound proofing is pretty good. One other thing I noticed is the minibar wasn’t replenished daily which I’m sure could’ve been sorted with a phone call to reception, but just in terms of revenue for them I shouldn’t really have to as it’s in there beat interest to do it. Anyway as I said not a deal breaker at all would stay again.

    Not really impressed with no car parking, mini bar, option of ordering in room meals, but overall clean, quiet and secure, friendly staff at reception . I would’ve preferred to stay on the west wing with total view of the city from balcony as requested from a photographer point of view. Slightly difficult to capture sunrise with buildings on both sides of the frame.

    Great staff/Noisy highway

    The staff were excellent and very helpful. The room was clean and had everything I needed. My only complaint is that the hotel is situated right beside a multi-lane highway. The room was very noisy all throughout the night. The hotel ownership might want to consider investing in white noise speakers or noise cancellation devices in the ceiling. This issue threatens all of the positive aspects of the hotel since at the end of the day I grade a hotel on my quality of sleep and I got very little during my stay.

    Because of limited parking, we have to park in street. But it is too difficult to find a steer parking nearby and we get a ticket of AUD 81. It not happened on us.

    Highly Recommend

    This is a great place. We paid a little more to be up higher in the tower, which was not a bank breaking amount on top of an already really reasonable price per night. This decision afforded us some stunning views of Southbank and the CBD. The pool is a uniform depth lap pool so it’s not huge and not real shallow so it might not entertain kids, but it was warm, and also had some great views. So many options for food, and groceries within a mile, and not a far walk to the trams. Check in, check out, and service were all great. Maybe a few more towels to help with pool use would be helpful. Highly recommend.
