Ola from Oz :-) It's Friday here now and we got the train up to Melbourne today. And yes I'll get the most important bit over first - I had trousers on again today. No shorts again. Honestly this weather better pick up or I'll be driving 15 hours up north to get some sun! Had a walk around the shops today - omg shops in Melbourne are amazing. The …

Setting the scene.

Location: Legs and Jacko's hotel room

Time: Early (Jacko up early again)

Legs: "blah, blah, blah, blah, blah"

Jacko: “You are feeling a lot better today I think”

When we got up this morning Legs was not feeling too well but she decided to soldier on as we had things to do. Jacko was up early again as not sleeping too well. We were undecided as to whether this was down to being homesick!

The normal routine of morning coffee in the hotel café while keeping up with emails and Skype calls was completed …

Walkabout in Melbourne

Up early and with a plan in our hands, we went walkabout in the Central Business District (CBD) of Melbourne to orientate ourselves with the area. It was obvious we were in the business district as it was full of suits. Although busy it was no way near a Canary Wharf. Most shops do not open until 10 am.

We wanted to find the Medicare …

We arrived on time at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport at around 0830 local. We had our ritual pre-landing session of anxiety from Legs. The regulations in her world decree an incorrectly completed immigration form equals life imprisonment.

Shockingly we cleared passport control in record time thanks mainly to an express pass given to …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Suites Gateway Melbourne

    Good location, average room

    from

    Mixed stay here for 5 nights on a first time visit to Australia. Room was rather old fashioned and didn't feel clean. Bathroom was small and sink was outside the bathroom. Breakfast selection was pretty good however. Forget using the pool - you can barely fit in there.

    Nice place, nice time!

    from

    Stayed here over Christmas week and had a lovely time. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms as I've lived in smaller flats. Would have liked a bath in the bathroom but other than that it was perfect. The staff were lovely and we had no trouble parking.

    ¡Buen sitio, lo pasamos bien!

    from

    Estuvimos aquí la semana de Navidad y lo pasamos de maravilla. Nos quedamos gratamente sorprendidos por el tamaño de las habitaciones, porque he vivido en pisos más pequeños. Me hubiese gustado una bañera en el cuarto de baño, pero a excepción de eso, todo era perfecto. El personal era encantador y no teníamos ningún problema para aparcar.

    Great value for a family with one small child

    from

    The Clarion Suites was a great find. It's location, on William at Flinders, places it within a couple of blocks of Flinders Street Station and at the intersection of a couple of tram lines. The under (glass roof) cover pool is great, and the breakfast buffet is reasonable, particularly since many of the online tariffs available throw it in anyway! The one-bedroom suites are ideal for a family with a young child - our daughter is six - as she has a reasonable sofa bed (and her own TV) to herself while we have a desk (there should be a law against having to work at night!) and a TV in the bedroom. Sure, it would be nice to have a two-bedroom suite but these are far more expensive at other places (and at the Clarion Suites they appear to be just adjacent one-bedroom suites or studios in any case!) Highly recommended after three stays . . .

    Second time and never again!

    from

    Second visit - first was a pokey room at the rear overlooking an office block. I was advised to pay the extra for a river view next time, so for a family visit booked a 2 bedroom apartment - with a riverview - direct with the hotel, not a cheap internet deal. Arrived via rental car and spent 20 minutes trying to navigate through the floors of the hotel's very narrow carpark, only to discover it was full (even though we had advised we needed parking). Front desk suggestion was to use a nearby carpark, but mentioned it wasn't open 24 hrs and would be closed when we came back from visiting friends. Great start!

    Bloody Fantastic. What a great surprise.

    from

    This hotel was a sensational surprise and a bargain for what you get against other Melbourne hotel prices. This was a honeymoon present for my brother and his new wife and they are still raving about the size of the apartment, the friendly helpful staff, the breakfast, THE SALE PRICE we were lucky enough to get and best of all the magnificent view of the city and river across from Crown Casino on his balcony on 11th flloor. We are recommending this hotel to everyone.

    Lovely staff

    from

    Me and my mother stayed here for a weekend in May. The concierge was great, went out of his way to give us a great room. The suites are lovely, very modern with great views over the southbank. Breakfast was great, lots of variety. Would stay again if we are in Melbourne, no complaints about this hotel

    Ideal Melbourne city apartment

    from

    We were a little dismayed when we arrived at our 10th floor Clarion Suites 1 bedroom apartment as it was directly overlooking the train line and the trains thunder past very often. There isn't much point in having the terrace door open. However the bedroom was double glazed and after a while we barely noticed them. The apartment was really well appointed with washer/dryer, granite bench tops and 2 TV's but the best thing was the view. Looking directly over the Yarra river to the Southbank and casino areas which is a picture at night and we could even see the harbour.Staff were very helpful for all enquiries and we would stay there again.

    Loved gateway suites melbourne

    from

    I have stayed at Gateway Suites in Melbourne, and the people were very nice (but who isn't down under) the rooms were always clean, the staff was very helpful. My daughter has been back on several occasions and when not staying with friends she has stayed at Gateway Suites.
