We had a very comfortable, four-day stay, thank you. The kitchen facilities were terrific and the living area was roomy and had a pleasant outlook. Bed was comfortable. Train noise was a bit of an issue but a reasonable price to pay, given the proximity of the West Richmond station. Regular trains made getting to the MCG and CBD so easy. On-site parking was a bonus. Would definitely stay again.

No hot water for a shower. Complimentary milk was off and persistent berping (every 10-15 secs) in the kitchen that I could not find the source of to stop.

We sincerely apologize for both of these issues. We have taken it up with our cleaning staff and we have contacted a plumber to deal with the hot water service immediately.

I liked the location and the kitchen was well appointed. I didnt like the lack of a basic like salt and pepper. I didnt like the lack of proper air conditioning. In the heat this week what was provided was inadequate ( better than nothing but not adequate air conditioning for an australian summer)

5 out of 5

Great value, convenient part of town.

Pros: Easy walk to Bridge Road, Swan Street, Smith Street. Plenty of lovely parks nearby, MCG etc. Short walk to West Richmond station. Reasonably quiet.
Cons: Maybe some brochures about local activities, including how to get around would be good. Possible that they were there but I missed them.
Location: See above. Lots of places to eat and shop nearby. Plenty of cool bars. Not too far to walk into the CBD if you are feeling energetic.
Went down for a reunion. Ideally based for this purpose. A fine weekend was had, and no dramas with the accommodation.

Great location for a great price

Perfect location. Easy commute (tram or train) to city or walk if keen for a stroll. Close to plenty of restaurant strips including bridge road. Train is right at your door, I mean literally, but the sound of the odd train going past did not phase us. Had everything we needed in a quit location. Also liked having off street parking if travelling with a car
