The unit I was provided was roomy, but there were problems. The remote to the tv in the bedroom didn't work. It was the wrong type for the tv supplied. The vanity basin in the bathroom lacked a plug. The wooden blinds on the windows had broken slats which let the light in at night. Overall the blinds were well...

After buggering up our accommodation for Sunday night my husband went online to book somewhere a little closer to Melbourne.

Efficient check in. Rooms tidy and roomy enough. Found a bobby pin under the hotel compendium in our room which makes you wonder about cleaners picking stuff up to dust/clean, instead of actually picking up things to dust under. Word of advice in some of the rooms like we had if you have to fold back the glass shower screen...

I was very stuck this past weekend and desperately needed a place to stay quick. Luckily I found Crest on Barkly with vacancy still, but for some godforsaken reason I have booked the wrong date.

Lovely Hotel. Inexpensive. Rooms clean. Though a bit far from downtown Melbourne. The hotel was nice. Would stay here again. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of five, Was the lift kept breaking down, and it was a far walk from the garage to my room with heavy luggage. No help with luggage available.

Very large room, Elevator was out of order for repairs, but was only on second floor fortunately. Smoke free building, staff very pleasant and helpful. Secure car park was definitely a requirement, and was included in price of room.
