Liked: Location to South Yarra trains and Trams were excellent. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a bonus for the Money Conscious traveller.

Disliked: Rooms were small but adequate for sleeping. NO ALCOHOL policy was a surprise. but generally good budget conscious accommodation. No parking if you had a vehicle.

Liked: The place is clean and the location awesome, just ask for a room away from the street. Clean, friendly staff and good location. 24 hour reception that take cares of the key...

Disliked: Had a room towards the street and while noise are to be expected whis was so bad. The windows had zero isolation and the street with the trams and all made so much noise. Didn't sleep much at all. The breakfast was ok but very boring with cereals and bread, instant coffee and some more.

Liked: The complimentary breakfast, cleanliness, value for money.

Disliked: You couldn't open the windows more than a hand span it made the room quiet stifling and hot. .. we had to buy another fan so that air could circulate as the first few nights were almost unbearable, the ceiling fan was to high up to generate a breeze.

Liked: The Hotel Claremont Guest House is gorgeous and has a boutique feel about it. It's location is fantastic- on the famous Toorak Road with all its lovely restaurants and cafes, and right next to South Yarra train station. The staff were so helpful. We had a twin room, which was a little tight with the suitcases, and there's no lift. There may be no cooking facilities, but it's more than made up for with microwaves, boiling water, tea, coffee + fresh milk(!)

Liked: It was central to the city. It has easy access to The Great Ocean Road and The Dandenong Ranges.

Disliked: The bathroom windows were kept open & it was freezing cold. We couldn't reach them to close them.

Liked: The ambience is very nice and location wise it is nearby a TRAM and TRAIN stop so its quite convenient. There's lots of nearby shops and restaurants as well so you'll never go hungry. For the price we paid, staying at Claremont was definitely a good deal and we'll be staying again when we visit MEL in the future.

Disliked: The floor tends to be squeaky and walls are thin so its a bit noisy when someone goes to the bathroom at night.

Liked: Free breakfast really good and free wifi which is always a plus. Nice common room area. More of a hotel feel to the place. Really great location, just off chapel street and has a tram right outside which goes straight into the city.

Disliked: Major issue was the lack of cooking facilities (just a microwave and sandwich toaster) which is difficult for those not wanting to eat out every night. The fridges are also constantly locked, which proved slightly annoying having to ask for a key every time you wanted a drink.
