6/10 Good

We arrived at 1am with no one at reception. Called and was told that my booking was not in the system and to find alternative stay for the night. Yes we were reimbursed for the expense but it was 1am and our first trip to Melbourne. Will be good idea to contact them to ensure your booking is in the system. The room would use a paint job, bed side lamps used UBS but they didn't provide adaptor so can't use. Go in without expectations and you won't be disappointed.

2/10 Poor

Room was small. Parking wasn't free. Front desk had no idea what was happening. The cot had no mattress. The television had no aerial cable. Nice walk to the city where there's a lot of nicer hotels.
Verified Wotif guest review

2/10 Poor

Arrived 5 min before check in only to be told our booking had been cancelled. No email or phone call to inform us before hand. Basically told to ring who we booked with and get them to sort it out. On checking reviews seems to happen regularly. This property over books to make sure all rooms are filled and then on the day cancels bookings.

2/10 Poor

They cancelled my accommodation without even 24 hours notice. They have avoided any responsibility of alternative accommodation or refunding my payment that I made 3 months prior to the date. I still do not have a refund and had to find and pay for my own alternative accommodation Absolutely Terrible

6/10 Good

Booked parking but was told it wasn’t available when I got there, because another car had failed to leave so there were no spots! Dishes hadn’t been cleaned from previous booking, and rooms are small and stuffy with no air conditioning, just a big fan, which doesn’t really cool the place down. It’s virtually a step up from a backpackers! Pretty ordinary.

4/10 Fair

Plum was very clean and in a great location. However TV was tiny and didn't work (manager couldn't sort it x 2 - did offer to change my room but was unpacked by then); fridge worked intermittently and had to pull out from under the bench to get it started) and the bed was two singles linked together with a flimsy sheet over the top (didn't cushion the ridges at all).
