Great location across from the train station. Great view from the 41st floor. We stayed for three

Great location across from the train station. Great view from the 41st floor. We stayed for three nights and could hop on the free tram and be downtown in just a few minutes. Ken also went above and beyond when one of our group left something valuable and Ken went out of his way to return it.

5 of 5
The unit was as described by our host Brett, with everything we needed for our stay for a family wedding in Ringwood. The nearby newly refurbished Eastland shopping centre is a great place to shop, meet family and eat out, and is only 10 minutes walk along the creek trail accessed alongside the unit. Ringwood train station is also within easy walking distance and has a fast direct line to the centre of Melbourne city. This unit was ideal for us in its location and available facilities and we were very comfortable and happy during our stay. It's a great base to explore the area, including the beautiful Dandenong ranges and Melbourne city. We would definitely stay here again.
