5 out of 5

The room was very clean and a very comfortable bed (better than my own bed..!!), lightning not too bright yet not too dull, if any comment on this area, perhaps another power point or two would make life easier nowdays when we are using phone, laptop chargers, and few other gadgets that need electricity as well as the kettle. Will book again when returning to Melbourne, an easy walk through the park to the City and sporting arenas.

The room was very good, staff were extremely friendly and the location was perfect. The only fault we could pick were the parking facilities, not enough parking for guests and it was drive in and reverse out and very narrow. Otherwise an extremely pleasant stay and would stay there again

We really enjoyed our stay at the Albany. It was so easy to walk to the trams, access trains or just walk into town. The area itself is beautiful and very safe. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful at all times. We would definitely come back to the Albany and know that it contributed to us having a very relaxed holiday. The Moores

Second time for us and this time were upgraded to a really trendy upper level room. Were going to a wedding and needed an early check-in which was granted. Room still being serviced but were given complimentary coffee and biscuits in cute cafe and then able to get into room one hour before normal checkin. Staff very friendly. Great location off St. Kilda Rd. Can't fault at all.

We booked accommodation at the Albany for a recent weekend visit to Melbourne. While the accommodation itself was basic, it was clean & comfortable. The location was great and the staff were amazing! Would certainly stay again.

Customer service was excellent. Room average in cleanliness but laying in bed saw the real picture - not good finish to any area. TV old and poor reception. Blinds broken and light from walkway shone in room all night!! Had to ask for extra tea -only two tea bags for 2 people!! Parking a disaster-had to wait for about an hour watching each of the three areas to see if anyone leaving-eventually found one but no security with parking. Room far too hot to sleep in - awake most of night-bed look terrific but found that bedding synthetic so very hot. Would not go back or recommend. Sorry to say this s staff so caring./good.

but would have been perfect if the heating worked. Whilst it doesn't compare with similar hotels on Albert Park lake the cost is much cheaper so greater value. The only complaint being the inadequate heating, could have done with another blanket,no TV remote control, and more tea bags but only the former spolit the experience. Breakfast great and the location as well being only 5mins walk to St Kilda road and trams everywhere Too bad this survey is only 5stars as it warranted a good 3.5 but not a 4

This motel was very convenient, but what took the accommodation over the mid-range line for me was the particularly nice staff and the very good breakfast on offer - even the express buffet. I would definitely stay here again.

Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Room needs maintenance - shower didn't have any pressure and plug for bath didn't fit properly enabing the tap to wash it out. TV needs work too - bad reception

I stayed in the original double room for one night , was lucky to to get a newer room although nearly all the tiles in the bathroom were cracked or missing , off street parking was available but only for 2 hours during certain times - limited parking space actually provided by motel, Was worth the money! And really great that they accept cash! :)

Fantastic experience! Staff were able to upgrade us to a superior double for twice night due to a booking mishap so were very happy with the service. Will be staying here again!

the staff and the room were nice. great location. But the major problem is no privacy there....the curtain cannot block the view as the blind windows were so bad!!!

This was a quiet and nice relaxing hotel. It is not a 5 star hotel, but it is well kept, and is very reasonably price in a very good location. I would definitely stay here again.

Really nice place to stay. I was able to check out late which was really helpful. Reception staff were fantastic and couldn't have been any more polite and pleasant. Cafe in the hotel was exceptional and again, first class service from staff there. If it wasn't quite so expensive - I'd be staying here every time I was in Melbourne which be very regular!

We had a really nice stay at the Albany. Staff were very helpful and gave good tips. Room service and afterhours food in Rest very dissapointing and overprices. Our room was near the smoking area so the fumes tended to come into the room, but it was not unbearable. Dispite these few things we had a very nice stay and will certainly stay there again!
