          • Older travelers
            10.0

            We enjoyed our stay and found the Plum very convenient for us as we are elderly and we were able to walk to the South Bank and onto city transport etc.The unit was very comfortable and we felt quite at home there.

            we are as mentioned elderly and also quite short and found the kitchen cupboards too high to reach safely for glasses,plates etc.Also the microwave cupboard protruded out too far with the danger of collision to the head when at the sink unit.We also would have preferred a unit facing the freeway as we found the setting sun a problem so next time we will ask for one when booking.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Helpful with all requests e.g. bookings, printing flight boarding passes, storing luggage outside stay hours, changed my room on request as initial one was unsutiable.

            did not inform that a building project was going next door to hotel and that infact equipment and men were stationed at some of the floor levels of the Plum Apartments, working all day with views into your room.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            The unit was neat,tidy and very functional.Balcony doors were double glazing and most effective shutting out city rd noise.Location was good with tram stop near bye and only a 10-15 min stroll to Casino and city centre.The walls were also very thick blocking out noise from adjoining apartments.

            TV was very small and was the only unit/room we have stayed in over the past 20 years that did not have Sky/Fox reception.We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit that was obviously declined by another tenant who did not wish to have their stay destroyed by the activity of the adjoining high rise construction.In view of the intrusions from the adjacent building [12 workers commencing work at 6.15am at eye level to our apartment and not finishing until 8.00pm] both on friday/saturday the rates charged should have been reduced by 50%.

            Very close to everything that I had to do in Melbourne. Easy access off the freeway. Parking was good but not if you have a lge 4wd, tight corners on parking ramps. Everything else was great,

            Close to MECC

            The cleaning is so bad, the air duct in the bathroom can see a lot of dust. The internet is so bad, we have complained and keep on repeating, sounds like the front desk staff is not communicating with each other.

            Location, friendly & helpful staff

            Bed; mattress was shocking. Needed a thorough clean, not just a wipe over for the entire appartment.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Proximity to the city and the car parking

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            The security - needing to swipe at the front door and in the lifts, also the reception desk was manned at all hours.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            That it was central to everything that we needed.

          • Couple
            6.6

            Easy walk to the city. Apartment was clean and had self-catering facilities. Staff were friendly.

            Kitchen tap fell off due to a loose screw. Could still be used, but needed to be treated very gently. Fan in bathroom didn't work.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Better than a hotel room - liked the spaceousness

            The traffic noise

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Hand rail required at bath tub.

            9.2

            Convenience of location, and level of security for entry/exit.
