Nice room but expensive and so-so staff service Mar 30, 2010
There are only two good things I can say about this hotel: 1) they have a good location and 2) they have a very good bed (soft pillows, cushion and sheets). It is nicely situated along St. Kilda road and just across the road there's a tram station and the national park. It is just a few blocks away from the city center and so it is actually walkable if you feel like talking a good walk. Other than those two, that's all you got for your money. Service wise there's really nothing. Nobody there to greet you or assist you with your luggage. The staff at the reception while courteous, does not really give this warm and pleasant smile you'd expect from an expensive hotel. It is quite funny to see the irony of how they boast of their "friendly coincierge" according to their website, (to quote:"our friendly concierge will remember your name, recommend a golf course to suit your handicap and fuss over your children. It's our special way of making you feel exceptional.") I never felt any of that friendliness they were talking about.

So fine, I thought to myself I'd just enjoy the bed and the breakfast. They have a buffet breakfast of some limited dishes like sausages, bacon, beans, bread and fruits which I and my hubby help ourselves with during our first day which was a Sunday. On the next days during the weekdays though, the main dishes

were gone and all they served for breakfast was bread and fruits. It was on my last day, which was a Saturday, that I actually understood the deal. My breakfast vouchers was only for continental breakfast, which is what they serve on weekdays and only on weekends they serve those main dishes but with

an additional fee of about 6 AUD. What the!?! It's the first time I've experienced such a set up. They didn't even have a systematic way of distinguishing those who has actually paid or not. It also didn't help that the broadband internet access in the room is NOT free.

Exceptional service is really what makes the stay in the hotel memorable and this is what this hotel is forgetting about. But oh yeah, they did say they have it in their website, just not in reality.
big room and comfy bed
