“Everything you need for a comfortable stay”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

It was our good luck when a booking we had at another hotel was cancelled and we were able to book here at the last minute. The reservation staff were really pleasant and very accommodating as were all of the people we encountered on the front desk. Stayed in a studio room which was well maintained and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Had a little section folded away with a sink, microwave, toaster etc.
The views from the room were fantastic looking out over the yarra and the casino. Short stroll down to the mall and a tram or train right outside the door.
We were really happy with this hotel and glad in the end our original hotel let us down.
Will definitely be back!

Had a pleasant stay with our friends in a 2 bedroom suite. Check in was well handled by helpful and friendly staff. Room was clean and had everything we needed. Fantastic view of south bank and the casino gas flames. Bed was comfortable. Good location and tram at the front door. Easy walk to south bank. Many places to eat close by and the breakfast was nice. Would return.

We just spend two nights in this motel. Riverview studio room.
On our arrive the staff where very friendly. The location is very central as we walked to both MCG and Etihad stadium.
On arrival to our room, the first impression was it's a bit old and worn. The TV didn't work and staff where required to attend and reboot the TV. Also the down light in the middle of the room was blown and the other down light over the small desk flickered. The bed side light on the LHS didn't work.
We could also hear the other patrons in the adjoining rooms, not very good sound proofing.
I would only stay in this motel if you can get it at a very good price.

Dear Valued Guest,

We are very pleased that you have mostly enjoyed your stay with us.

I hope that you also had an opportunity to appreciate the Yarra River views & and also the magnificent, Crown Casino nightly fireball show, this is truly a bit of Las Vegas on door step, some of our guests are pleasantly surprised by the hot flames which shoot into the night skyline.

We are at the early stages of planning to refurbish all the hotel rooms, even though our last fit-out was completed in 2007, however we do recognize that guest satisfaction is most important to us, therefore, it remains our primary objective to improve on quality & guest services.

Our hotel team is always ready and willing to offer 24 hour service, in matters of light replacement or re-programing TV’s, unfortunately sometimes guests unwillingly tamper with the reception, therefore it requires it to be re-programed. We are very much focused on your comfort, this is our main goal in our hotel, and we will always strive make this our ambition.

Thank you so much for staying with us, we look forward to welcoming you back one day soon.

Regards,

Tony Cakmar
General Manager

We had a good stay in the Clarion. We spent a week in the 1 bedroom apartment, and had no complaints. We didn't have much interaction with the staff, but they were very friendly & helpful when we did. Apartment had a full kitchen and laundry facilities. Everything worked well. DVD player was attached to the TV in the bedroom, which didn't suit us as our kids wanted to watch a DVD in the living area, but this wasn't a big deal.

Overall, it wasn't the sort of knockout hotel that we're aching to return to, but it has set the benchmark for our future stays in Melbourne.

Recently stayed at the Clarion Suits for one night with my wife.
We walked from Southern Cross Station, short 5-10 min walk, and close to Crown and Southbank. Check-in was very quick and efficient, room was nice and clean, modern.
We ere given vouchers to the lobby bar and restaurant which we didnt use. Room had small kitchen facilities, enough for breakfast, or tea and coffee etc.
For $180 a night, probably a little expensive, but we were happy with the facilities and service.
