Very average

Pretty good location for sport but otherwise just a tired place that they're trying to do their best with but fighting a losing battle. In terms of value you'll get much, much better hotel accommodation at the same price in or closer to the CBD.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location!! It's only 5mins away from the city, but very quiet and there is a nice park opposite to the APT. It's very comfortable and perfect place to stay for the human and dogs. Now I'm just about to book to stay for this weekend!!! I can not wait! My dog and I will have an awesome time when we are there.

Great location and dog friendly

  • 4 of 5

Finding suitable accommodation in Melbourne for a family of 2 kids, 2 adults and dog can be difficult but this one was great. Room size was just enough, room did not smell doggy or have any fur etc, benefits of location to Victoria Street and city perfect for us, secure parking was great, friendly staff and our pup no problems at all. Glad we found it for future travels, thank you

  • 5 of 5

Birches Service apartments were more than we could ask for. The apartment was lovely, very comfortable and clean. Tanya, the office manager, was fantastic at making us feel welcomed and at home. She was also very efficient in getting our room ready before the regular check-in time as we had a wedding to go to. Birches felt like a second home to us for the 4 nights we were there. Very close to the city centre and there are lots of food options around the area, including a supermarket just down the road. Couldn't ask for more! Will definitely be going back there again. No regrets.
