Travel Blogs from Melbourne

This is a top pick!

I've decided against heading into town. I'd already booked the Formule 1 hotel at the airport and the bus to town is $28 return. I can eat at the airport for that.

What really amazes me is that French beer on tap at the airport is 'only' $9.50 a pint. This is a normal Hobart price. I'm impressed. Beer might be reasonable but …

Weihnachten bei 38 C

A travel blog entry by bianca_julian


Wir waren heute wieder frühstücken bei Miss Mauds (dem urigen schwedischen Restaurant gegenüber), zuerst hiess es bei uns im Hotel dass das heute
plötzlich Vollpreis kosten würde obwohl wir das im Internet für den
reduzierten Hotel-Preis gebucht hatten, aber dort vor Ort bei Miss Maud war dann alles
OK, merkwürdiger Start...

An earthquake to announce my departure

A travel blog entry by ed.herweynen


Stan kindly gave me a lift to the airport with dinner allong the way.

I took up a suggestion to stay overnight at the airport to save a very early start, a mad rush to the airport by taxi.

Staying at a budget hotel, I heard a noise and then the whole room swayed. I was wondering if that was why the hotel was cheaper, but then I …

There Were 3 in the Bed

A travel blog entry by anniebenham

Hobart Airport at 10pm has got to be one of the most boring places on the planet. There are 3 shops filled with the normal array of magazines, books, snacks and souvenirs which were all shut. A vacant coffee shop and a scattering of people sitting around the 4 gates. It was therefore a joy to board our plane and head off to Melbourne.

Once …

We leave Australia

A travel blog entry by iain.dalgleish

A short drive to Melbourne Airport to check into a cheap, very cheap and nasty place it was too for an early start in the morning. Then drove back into Melbourne to hand the car over to my Brother who will return it to my parents later in the week.

    Small but handy...

    Room is pretty small but it's easy enough to wander over to the airport and get some surprisingly nicely priced beer.

    It is cheap and you do not have high expectations but it fails even those low standards. A 3 storey building with no lifts, the rooms are clean, but no love is in them. Want a cup of tea/coffee in the morning? No chance except from the vending machines. Do away with the crap telly, replace it with a good radio and put in a tray of tea bags etc to improve things.

    Basic room, poor customer service

    The room was clean, though resembled a student campus room with an enclosed bathroom cubicle. It had no tea or coffee but may have had a basic old TV - stayed it it a month ago now. Customer service by woman at desk was appalling! She was rude and I had to spend the morning back in the airport sleeping on a sofa because she wouldn't keep my luggage and she was rude in addition to this. It was very convenient for the airport, but would not like to repeat my stay here.
