    Disappointed after staying in so many nice places on our travels

    When we arrived went to Reception who told us park our car on level 3 of the next door public car park which is 10 dollars per day (we knew there was a charge). However getting the luggage from the car park to your room is an art in itself. Across the car park and through 2 doors and then down some steps by the spa. I went downstairs to the reception (3 flights) to see if the had a luggage carrier. Someone else on reception said 'oh you should have unloaded out front before parking and use the lift'. She did offer to bring the trolley up in the lift - however having put the luggage on the trolley and pushing it down the corridor - we didn't make it to our room because at the beginning of our corridor was the store room and our path was blocked by their trolley and dirty linen bags. Our room which was booked as a Boutique room is very small. A double bed and a table with one chair. Again when I said to reception that it was rather small was told that really it is a single room but she said people wanted to book it as a double room so that's what it's advertised as??? The safe in the room was broken - first of all I was told that I'd done it wrong and entered the wrong number and would have to wait for half an hour for it to unlock. When the guy from reception came up to unlock - he couldn't - and said it was broken and they were having problems with thrown safes. He did say to take any valuables down to reception and they would put them in their safe. There was a wedding on both days over the weekend so you are unable to use the indoor pool. Again the receptionist told me she wished they wouldn't advertise having a pool on websites because when there is a function other guests can't use it. Our deal gave us breakfast. The wording on the breakfast menu says guests will receive one meal and one beverage with our compliments. No alteration to this menu. This means if you have a fruit juice to start you have to pay for either tea or coffee. I have travelled all over the world and have never known where you don't get juice and tea or coffee. Any refills have to be paid for. There are some plus sides - the room is very clean, shower warm and good quality towels. Reception did arrange for us to have a second restaurant chair bought up to our room. The restaurant staff and cleaners are all very pleasant. There is also free wifi - a good plus. It is in a good location - plenty of bars and restaurants and just over the road from a very nice beach.

    After breakfast we caught the tram into the city centre. We walked through the city past the Cathedral to Federation Square and then went on to visit the Old Melbourne Goal which is where Ned Kelly was tried and hanged. The Goal closed in 1924 but opened in 1972 as a museum. There is a lot of history about Ned Kelly and his gang which was quite …

    A beautiful morning. Decided that we would go to the beach for the morning. As it was the weekend there were quite a few people about. I thought the sea was a bit cold but it is very safe for swimming.

    We had dinner down Acland Street which is very touristy and popular with many lively bars. Also the cake shops down this street are to die …

    Too nice a day to be travelling but we are moving on to St Kilda which is a suburb of Melbourne. The first part of the journey is OK - follow the ocean road to the end in Torquay and then onto Geelong and the freeway into Melbourne. When we got off the freeway the traffic was horrendous and we ended up going the wrong way out of Melbourne. Turned …

    ... It's obviously a suburb, but there are cafes on every street, and shops everywhere. Craigieburn is a lot more like suburbs we're used to in Adelaide, mostly houses and then a big shopping complex somewhere in the middle). Craigieburn is quite a new area though, so much so that the shopping complex seems to be in the middle of nowhere.

    We had lunch in the shopping complex (G had a kebab, B had sandwich chef - just like old times, Mum!) and then spent some ...

    ... home for the break, exploring Melbourne a bit more and soak up some great days at the beach! We spent Thanksgiving picnicking on the beach with our beach towels as our blanket. It was a completely different feeling then what we are use to. Although the scenic view was beautiful we sure missed sitting around a table filled with yummy food shared with family and friends. Instead of a nice big turkey we settled for a rotisserie chicken, which was good ...
