Week 2

... did in Adelaide.

In the evenings this week we didn't really get up to much, but we certainly made up for it on the weekend! Friday night we went to a shopping centre for some window shopping (and a little bit of real shopping!). We spent the majority of the day Saturday going to open inspections, starting at 9:30 and finishing at 2:30, with an inspection just about every half hour.Of the nine we visited, only two we liked, and so we put in ...

... massage via the extremely loud sub woofer which vibrated - that was nice of him. Since I'm so up with technology, I'd already done the mobile check in thing so when we arrived at the airport, we only had to check our luggage. Unfortunately, they wouldn't let me check in my make up bag. I had to take it as a carry on, as it weighed 10 kg and you are only allowed 7 kg I had to remove some items (Physio cream for my sore neck, Body Shop Almond Shower cream, Body Shop ...

that there is a possibility that one of them may longer be on this earth when I

Moca Fiji - Hello Melbourne!

A travel blog entry by pablopars


... bit sad to be leaving this place I'm comforted by the thought of returning home to see all my friends and family once again... Melbourne is great and I would love the chance to come back here one day to see it in greater detail. Perhaps even to travel along the southern coast of the country to Perth but that's an adventure for another day. My thoughts right now are of England and planning my next steps over the coming weeks! England here I come! : ...

    Brilliant Hotel & Staff


    We stayed at this hotel from 28/9/06 to 04/10/06 which is one of their busiest times being the AFL Grand Final. The hotel was fully booked and extremely busy however we were made to feel like we were the only people there. We went with 3 other couples and we all recommend this hotel. From the concierge, to the Lobby bar staff, to cleaners they all had a welcoming smile and were helpful in every single way. The rooms were extremely clean, the decor lovely and the beds very comfortable. We have travelled to Melbourne for the last 4 years but this was our 1st stay at this hotel. I can guarantee I will not be staying anywhere else on our future visits to Melbourne. This is the place to stay. You cannot go wrong. Location is great, opposite the Crown Casino and the trams stop right at your door. Do yourself a favour and give this hotel a go. You will not be disappointed.

    Pleasantly surprised....


    Stayed at this property for one night about two weeks after it was rebranded as a Crowne Plaza. Left the day before the Commonwealth Games began. Melbourne was buzzing.

    Uncomfortable beds


    Certainly a cut above most HIs I've stayed at (someone has actually thought avout the colour scheme and decor in the rooms) with rooms spacious enough and a good location.

    My wife and I stayed for a week at the holiday inn in October and had a great time. The location of the hotel is great - just a short walk to the centre of town and the great restaurants along the Yarra. We found the service to be very good and the staff friendly and helpful - particularly AJ in the bar, who serves a mean coffee!

    GREAT location, GREAT food and GREAT price!!!


    I stayed at the Holiday Inn Melbourne in May 2005 for a business trip and really enjoyed my stay. I had an upgraded room with a view of the Crown Casino complex across the street & river (definitely worth the extra money). Every hour, the casino's many outside towers shot huge flames of fire into the air in varying sequences - quite something to see from your room's wall-to-wall windows and in-person just a few minutes away by foot.

    Disappointed in the Holiday Inn


    Good points: Lobby and lobby bar are stylish and pleasant, guest services (aka concierge) helpful, location is good for the Casino and CBD.

    Great view and quality service


    This Holiday Inn is one of the best in the chain and offers really good value for money. The executive rooms are a high standard and the view down the Yarra River is amazing. Overall the location is super being close to Spencer Street station (where the airport shuttle buses terminate) and the town centre. Several tram lines pass the door so access to any part of Melbourne is quick, easy and cheap. The hotel food was great whether dinner or breakfast. The business service centre was available 24 hours per day and internet access was free.

    More a business hotel and not much atmosphere but the service, rooms and food more than made up for this deficiency.

    I will certainly use this hotel again.

    This is a nice hotel!


    We - my girlfriend and I - arrived at the hotel at 5 o'clock in the morning after a *very* long flight.

    Best views! Amazing Location!


    Attended meetings in melbourne and aussie friend told me to stay at the Holiday Inn. Great choice. I had a view overlooking the beautiful Yarra River and with great modern rooms with floor to ceiling windows I had the best view. At night you can watch the fire flame display next to the casino from your room window. View was worth the extra dollars. Right next to the convention & exhibition center where there was a great boat show on. Hotel has a good bar, nice breakfast, and a unreal chinese restaurant. Will stay here again and recommend this hotel especially because of the staff. Also free 24 hour internet in business centre!

    Good location for casino


    Perfect location smack opposite the Crown casino complex and with lovely river views. 5 minutes walk to the city centre and only 10 minutes to the beach at St Kilda (by tram).The crown casino must be seen to be believed - it is huge with restaurants, bars, cinemas etc. a weeks holiday in itself. The hotel is just about what you would expect from a holiday inn. Very clean and comfortable but no character. The outdoor swimming pool is only small. All in all a good clean hotel in a perfect location to explore Melbourne city.
