      We have been staying at Gordon Place over a period of 30 years, on our visits to Melbourne. When we first stayed there, a number of small business operated inthe building, such as a bespoke tailor. We enjoy the character of the building and do enjoy the upgrades that have evolved over the uears to the levels of comfort. We will be back, probably next year.

      Its a pity the breakfast facility and the coffee bar no longer operate.

      Location and layout of the apartments with the 2 courtyards. Working desk facilities in each room.

      1. Worn steps from floor 2 to floor 3 nearest reception are somewhat dangerous and a potential liability for Somerset Gordon. 2. Air conditionining (heating) in room 13 does not work - not good for cold winter nights.

      Location was good. Desk staff were helpful.

      I thought the rooms were run down and the cleanliness was very average .Extra duvet tor the bed was dirty. Bed covers were sheets. The noise level from the street at night kept you awake and you needed ear plugs in order to sleep. If the jug and heater were turned on at the same time the electricity would short out. I let the front staff know of this but nothing was done.

      Excellent location. Parking not far away and at a reduced rate. Staff excellent! Very warm and cozy during one particularly cold week in melbourne.... Thanks

      Good central position,unobtrusive-no problems.

      Bed slightly uncomfortable.All lights not working.No cloth to wipe dishes.

      We were very happy with the hotel apart for one thing & that was the fact that we specifically booked this hotel for all the amenities that were available to us & the location due to it being right in little bourke chinatown for the restaurants

      The fact that the facilties we wanted to use the most being the spa was completely empty & the sauna was locked up & couldnt be used so that was very disappointing

      The location was excellent and most of the staff were very helpful and friendly.

      There were many things in our room that were broken e.g the tv and the dryer. We paid alot of money for two rooms and we were treated very badly by one of the staff members. We were dissapointed the cafe and spa were not working as this was one of the main reasons we chose this hotel.

      Great position for eating, shopping,theatres & rod laver arena. Staff were terrific.

    • Older travelers

      I did appreciate the architectural features and history. The thick walls also meant no noise from the neighbours. Having kitchen facilities is always a bonus.

      Street noise was a problem. It was quite stuffy inside the room and it was helpful to be able to open the windows, but street noise until the early hours was a problem as was the noise from the garbage trucks at 6am.

      Hotel in located in the middle of the city and it's value for money

      Rooms could do with an upgrade, a bit run down

    • Family with children
      5.8

      Original building and features capture the old style 19th Century Melbounre

      The floors in the bathrooms and toilet were covered in dust, and appeared not to be cleaned for some time.

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      Central to restraurants and shopping. Staff very friendly and helpful.

      Only thing I could fault was there were no extra blankets in room. Also no information on meals available in hotel
