Latest Melbourne Hotel Reviews


Great room, great stay
By nikki831
The view of the riverfront from our room was outstanding. The staff was very kind and put us in our room immediately even though we were arriving at 9am due to an international flight. The location [More] is convenient to everything. It was everything we wanted in our stay. [Less]
Excellent Stay

Friendly staff and comfortable room. The views from our room were great and the breakfast delicious. [Less]
Great views
By Morsguccii
Recently refurbished hotel. Staff fantastic as always. Thanks Alistair for listening to my rants. Great location on the Yarra River across from the casino. Fabulous views from our room. [Less]
Comfortable bed and warm & friendly check-in staff
By fish
Near to airport with free shuttle to airport. Could be more punctual with the shuttle going to the airport. We were waiting at the reserved time made the day before, but there was no shuttle ready to [More] go. When the shuttle was ready to pick-up passengers, it seemed that it did not matter if reservations had been made or not as no checks were done and some passengers could not board and had to wait for the other shuttle. [Less]
Happy stay
By Suze
Relaxed and comfortable accommodation with great food [Less]
Best flight stop over
By Princes68
Arrived to be offered water with a smile as we had walked from airport not realising shuttle bus available, our flight was not till 4.35pm next day and straight away staff offered us late check out [More] to 2pm I was so exhausted I didn't get service desk girls name but am so thankful for her help. After being checked in and went down for dinner, never have I received such lovely service, our wait staff member Bernadette was absolutely lovely, got us a table straight away. The meal itself was amazing and well priced. After dinner we went to bar where we were greeted by Jules and Breiana (Hopefully spelt correctly) they made sure we were comfortable and when we made request to change channel they did so with a smile, they converse with customers well, normally when you stay at a hotel you dont remember who served you, but for these staff members they left an impression, it has been 5 days since we were at hotel and still remember names, so that's a good thing. Our room was comfortable, I was surprised we couldn't hear planes. next day checkout got shuttle car to terminal, I wish to thank all the staff for their wonderful service, and will definitely use Holiday Inn at Melbourne Airport again.

An Enjoyable stay at Intercontinental Melbourne
By Ming
Although this property is a little bit old, the overall condition is still good. Most importantly, people here are amazing. They were very welcoming and took good care of me. Recommend this property [More] if you visit Melbourne. [Less]
A romantic getting away after a day or work
By Big_Pete09
We spent the weekend in Melbourne after a day of meetings. The Intercontinental Hotel was a great place to stay, centrally located and good facilities. The lobby lounge was a great spot with [More] good cocktails and great staff. The Club Lounge was handy, but looks tired if compared to other similar properties in Melbourne. Club Lounge staff were exceptional. Our suite was good, I would prefer the option of USB chargers on the night stand. This is something nearly all hotels offer, I don't carry a charger anymore. Just a cable. Just a minor point. [Less]
Amazing service
By Lisamay
Best staff of any hotel I have stayed at. Friendly, welcoming and helpful. Rooms are spacious, bed are comfortable and everything is super clean and all amenities present [Less]
