Latest Melbourne Hotel Reviews

Will be back
By Lee46
We had a great 5 day stay at the Holiday Inn, unfortunately there are water work repairs in front of the hotel at the moment which it makes a little hard to access. And they start work on the rd very [More] early, hence waking up hotel guest. But this is in no way faults of the hotel. The staff are one of the most friendliest I have had the pleasure to meet, they go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The only down fall we had was are room needed vacuuming while we were there and this wasn't done. We should have requested for them to do it and it would have been no problem. Also the breakfast buffet was cold most of the time and not topped up well on somedays. But again these are only small issues that we were not overly fussed about. I will definitely be back to stay at the Holiday Inn [Less]
Holiday in on Flinders
By IHGregular
Great hotel, excellent food and service. Only issues are inconsistent water temperatures in the shower and scratchy soap. [Less]
Welcoming and safe
By Maree56
Great rooms especially the bed and pillows, the safe feeling within the Hotel and pleasantness of staff [Less]
Location location
By mandmgriffin
It’s just OK, the restaurant has a monopoly on guests, restaurant staff are slow, could care less attitude. We sat for 20 minuets after our table was cleared waiting on the bill, finally walked out [More] then they came chasing us down to pay. I told them I was tired of waiting and tried to flag them down but they were too busy doing nothing except talking to each other. Hotel over all was ok. [Less]
End of holiday stay

Nice old building for a stay
By xueren
Room not very big but swimming pool is nice. Building itself is breathtaking. [Less]
Great location, warm and professional staff, ample sized rooms with amenities
By BiggieWu
I recently stayed at the InterContinental Melbourne on a business trip. I stayed in one of the Ambassador rooms on level 9, which resulted in a nice and peaceful night. I heard from a colleague who [More] stayed on a level 3 room facing the atrium had issues relating to light creeping into the room as well as excessive sound from the hotel's Market Lane Bar. The buffet breakfast was above average with a nice spread of hot and cold (healthy) options. Conveniently located in Melbourne CBD. Would definitely visit again on my next trip. [Less]
Excellent at the Intercontinental Melbourne
By Andrew
The Intercontinental has become my go to hotel, so much so that I joined their Ambassador programme, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. I stayed in Melbourne overnight after a late-ish [More] arrival before driving into the country. The stay was amazing; great team and service, beautiful room and amenities, a great experience all round. A favourite of the Intercontinental in Australia is the rose water scents, and of course the luxurious rooms. I stayed in the Melbourne Suite and it exceeded expectations. An enormous lounge room, a huge bedroom with an equally large bed - very comfortable - and a bathroom to match. Great service, friendly team and a lovely hotel. [Less]
