    The friendly and knowledgable service provided was great and the location is very convinient for seeing the sights and shopping.

    Air conditioning could only be adjusted at the reception desk, which is a minor inconvinience.

    I liked the most the hotel staff. Everybody was very polite, friendly, helpful and professional. I've just moved to Melbourne and I felt like home.

    cooking and dishwashing facilities. Excellent help from reception staff in giving tourist info.

    Everything was excellent and to make it better a list of nightly television programs would have been good.

    Tv did not have full reception and could not be repaired until after we left. Called room service for real milk as the booklet suggested, was supplied with uht.

    Excellent Staff and service.

    Our 2 bedrrom apartment was a bit "worn". The shower rail over the bath in the ensuite had broken off from its fixture bolts at one end. The tiled surfaces in the kitchen and bathrooms were a bit "sticky" underfoot suggesting that hot clean water has not been used when the floors are mopped.

    We asked for extra glasses to be brought to the room and no one came. Our room keys didn't work so four times we had too go and get them reprinted..

    Good location and friendly staff.

    The room was very tired and not very well equipped. We even had to ask for a toaster! Washing machine but no dryer which is not much use where there is nowhere to hang up the laundry to dry. Not even salt & pepper in the cupboard, mismatching glassware. Were not very happy to have a "disability bathroom" - it was rather like staying in a hospital, not an apartment. Wi-Fi is expected these days, but is not available at this hotel. We felt that it was not very good value for money.

    Afl Grand FInal Weekend - Central location close to everything. Too many good restaurants to count close by. Cuts out taxi costs

    Need to be street side while works are being done on the Myer building adjacent & behind Somerset. Fridge had a really bad smell but as we did not need it we kept it closed. The staff were aware of the smell but maybe not the source as there was a machine in the room filtering the air when we arrived.
