Recent guest reviews

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, facing the back of the building & had no issues with noise at all. The hotel is right above Demazzi's, where we enjoyed a great dinner. Coles is right next door, along with a service station. The apartment was very roomy, the 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms & the full kitchen were all clean & well equipped. We will definitely stay here again, highly recommended.

For the price, i really expected more from this establishment. It is well located in the north west of Greater Melbourne and thus easy access to the Ring Road, Airport and outer areas on Melbourne. It is surrounded by restaurants and a supermarket across the carpark. The front-desk people were friendly and very helpful. However, the room while reasonably spacious looked tired. The shower looked a little dirty with rust and 'stuff' around the door hinge which needed adjustment. For an 'apartment' there was little to call a kitchen. My stay was OK and i did get a very good sleep - just disappointed by the price-room standard ratio.

Balcony door does not lock. I told front desk staff and got a shoulder shrug. I do not feel safe. Dirty hallways and sloppy cleaning efforts in room. This hotel is one star rating charging four star prices. I would not stay here again.

Very spacious apartment with separate bedroom and all facilities. Good location close to the city. Plenty of car parking available either underground or close by. The apartment was very clean and quiet. Good value for money.

Great apartment with everything we needed. Comfortable beds, great showers, parking, excellent location for us to visit family and friendly, helpful staff. Cafes, restaurants, supermarket, pharmacy and trams right outside the door. We'll be back. Wifi is free if you join their Rewards Program.

We needed a handy two bedroom unit which could accommodate 5 people and this placed filled the bill really well. Brilliantly laid out two bedrooms plus a put me up in the lounge area. But further from Tullamarine airport than we anticipated but that was ok. Basement parking very handy too. Could have been a little cleaner but generally it was well appreciated after a long flught from the UK. The gentleman on reception was very helpful. Recommended For short stopover.

Accommodation was excellent very well appointed and clean. Staff and in particular Eva were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Will definetly go back when we visit Australia again in 2018. It's extremely convenient for trams and trains into city

Just had a very pleasant stay at the Punthill, Essendon. The room was clean and spacious, with everything I needed. I only stayed.a few nights so did not check out the fitness center. I found the staff very easy to deal with and very happy to address any questions. Would happily stay there again.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for a couple of nights, while visiting people in the local area. It's a little hard to get to, as you needed to come off a main road. We missed the entrance the first time and drove in via a backlane (through the coles carpark). The staff were very helpful, and offered information about getting the tram into the city. The apartment was a great size. The second bedroom had two single beds. The main bedroom was large, had an area for suitcases, and an ensuite. The lounge / dining areas was also large. The kitchen had enough plates, mugs, cutlery etc for use, and also a dishwasher and microwave. The apartment was very clean. There is a restaurant attached, and the room service rates for this were not over the top. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Perfect place to stay for any occasion. Great hosts, very convenient location for public transport to the city, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets. Everything literally at your doorstep. Really clean, quiet and modern rooms. Secure parking. Simply cannot fault the place. Stayed for Cox Plate weekend for pleasure, and checking in again this week for almost a month for work.
