We would not even contemplate staying anywhere but the Canterbury International in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. In every respect, it is a superb facility. Where else would you find the manager offering to assist with transferring your bags from the vehicle to your room? We just love the Canterbury International.

As with our previous stays at the Canterbury International, everything about the establishment is first class. The staff could not possibly make you feel more welcome, and there is a feeling of real homeliness the moment you walk through the front door and are asked if you require assistance to bring your luggage into the hotel. Thank you once again, Canterbury International, for a wonderful overnight stay.

The second time we have stayed at the Canterbury International Hotel, and all aspects again were exemplary. From check-in to check-out, everything was superb. We would not consider staying elsewhere in MELBOURNE'S OUTER EASTERN SUBURBS.

This is a great hotel! Check in was quick, professional and friendly. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and quiet. Every member of staff we encountered was helpful, friendly and professional. We had a room service breakfast, which was courteously delivered on time and the food was excellent. The free onsite parking is a bonus. Close access to restaurants, freeways and shops makes the location ideal. It was not our first stay at this hotel and it definitely won't be our last.

Superb accommodation, for a most reasonable price. The staff's attention to very detail was faultless, to the point where the duty manager absolutely insisted on unlocking the door of our room. We dined in house in the evening, and the meal was outstanding. We would not hesitate to stay at Canterbury International Hotel again.
