Great Place to stay

We had a great dinner with family and friends and an overnight stay. The staff were exceptional and could not have been more helpful. The only critisism would be that the room was for 4 people but there was only seating for 2, and the kitchenette was in the doorway making it awkward.

Not this stay

I am a regular guest at this hotel, unfortunately not a good experience this time- Moving rollaway beds and trolleys outside your front door at 6.30 am on Saturday is not good enough

Fairly good

Overall we were happy with our stay. We had issues with lighting that wouldn't switch off,causing my partner to suffer a migraine. Instead of fixing the faulty switch, they came in & removed all globes, leaving the area in darkness for the term of our stay.We also were disappointed in the pool facilities, having no lights in the area restricted usage time till 21:00. They could supply more milk for coffees :-/

Just perfect

Great facility and location close enough to almost everything, Moorabbin factory outlet, Dandenong Ranges, Mornington Peninsular. Lovely comfortable room, lacking nothing. Very clean. The staff are very helpful! Thank you guys! Close to the beach and famous Brighton bathing boxes. AND there is a pool and small gym!
