The room was clean and comfortable, private bathroom and tea/coffee facilities. Although above the hotel our room faced the parking area and we were not too disturbed by the noise. The location suited us as we were visiting family nearby and we were within walking distance to the cafes. Parking was okay, can get full during opening hours, but we got a spot each night no problem. Very reasonable price and we would return when next visiting Footscray.

Pls be aware that rooms are directly above a bar. We stayed there on a friday with the bar open and a wedding also going on downstairs, which was clearly heard. So if you can't fall asleep with music playing, don't stay there. Internet did not work and they did not know how to fix it. I also got informed that it can only be used for basic web browsing, maybe an upgrade of internet speed would be appropiate.

The food is great. No question. We were seated by the meeter & greater and that must have exhausted his level of interest. Although we liked his shirt. 20 minutes later we followed the lead of another table & approached the bar to order as we did not have unlimited time-sorry no can do return to the table please said the solitary waitress.Now here was the opportunity as the kitchen team stood waiting for the meeter and greater to step up. No he took the device to the large share table to focus on the future. The food was great. The service apologetic. The guy in charge on Wednesday 3/4/2019 needs to think about his position. Not sure if I will be back.

I know it was a warm night - but the moment we sat down our menus were blowing off the table because of the multiple fans directed straight at us. And immediately regretted my geometric hair cut and long fringe. So it wasn’t a pleasant seating arrangement ... and the acoustics of the place made talking virtually impossible. Service was slap-dash too - the staff seemed preoccupied (possibly catching flapping menus) or yelling over hysterical patrons at nearby tables (thankfully the rowdy lot did leave shortly after we arrived). The food, however, was reasonably good. A shortage of vegetarian options - bit of a norm these days. Would I go back? Maybe for a big table gathering where conversation was of secondary importance.

Visiting the area and was looking for a good pub feed and this place nailed it. Comprehensive interesting menu with vegetarian options and definitely delivers with flavour. Service was good just a little slow but not too bad just advice for management on an area to be tweaked. Maybe get waitstaff to carry iPads or phones for orders more efficient. Will be back :)

Wow , I was very impressed with the meal and atmosphere. Service was excellent and the prices are very reasonable. I had a very nice porterhouse steak cooked perfectly with salad and chips and the other members of my family were all impressed with their meals.

I found my stay here to be fine, check in good, there is a security bond which they put on your credit card. I had room 4 facing Geelong Road. l could easily hear the traffic. No double glazing on the windows. Noise from other other rooms quite loud and distracting until around 11pm on a Thursday night. Ask for a room at the back section! Room clean and tidy, shower great. Split system heated the room very well. Easy walk to trains, buses, shops, bars. Great restaurant at the hotel which is a very popular spot for a drink or meal, l didnt try this time but l have eaten there in the past. Car parking on site and plenty of room to park. Would recommend if you are looking for a bargain price stay on the edge of Melbourne or the western suburbs.

The room was very well layed out. I stayed in the room at the top of the stairs facing Geelong Rd and it was a little noisey at times with the road traffic, and the heavy door closing as people came and went. I was told by a gentleman staying in the hotel that the rooms on the opposite side were quiet. There was a lovely lounge area at the end of the hallway and the food in the pub downstairs was excellent along with the service.

Our room was fine. The carpets/tiles are getting a little old, but the room met our needs very well. We didn't use it, but there is a cozy guest lounge at the end of the hall, and laundry facilities. A short stroll down the street for some breakfast before checking out. Well priced rooms. We would happily stay there again if we are in the area.

While it's no Shangri-La, The Plough Hotel is clean and close to public transport and shops. I booked the smallest/cheapest room and was happy. Just BYO your own toothpaste. Special thanks to Louise for being so helpful and friendly. Would definitely come back here.
