Nothing fancy but every thing necessary for a comfortable stay is covered..Been staying with ibis since they took over from formula One (6-7yrs) and will stay many more times...Thankyou
The TV in the room was very poor quality. It was slow changing stations, it was slow loading every time and the picture quality was poor. There were very limited fox stations and a few sporting events i was looking forward to watching while i stayed there were not available.
The cabin we stayed had all basic conveniences, it was dated but it was at the low end of the range. Bed was very comfortable but pillows where not good. We would definitely go back to this location but pick a cabin in the higher range.
Great staff and beautiful hotel. Really happy with our stay. We would like to stay again in the future. A great location too. The flagstaff gardens were beautiful and the kids had a great time there.
Awesome couple nights here. Easy check in. Friendly staff. Awesome city views. $25 parking pn. . Close enough to 2 walk into city. Will be my go to for melb stays.
