Positive Reviews

Ideal location in central Victoria.

Guests overwhelmingly agreed that the location in central Victoria is hard to beat for travellers who want to explore the city. The club is a stone's throw from local parks, restaurants, shops, and the waterfront, putting travellers within walking distance to just about everything.

Comfortable building with historic charm.

The 19th-century heritage building was greatly enjoyed by visitors for its old-world charm and comfort. Visitors said that there were plenty of common areas to relax, adding that the old décor and high ceilings give the club a warm atmosphere.

Great restaurant fare.

The club chef received high praise from reviewers who said that the food was delicious and offered a very good selection to suit many tastes. Diners also appreciated the extensive list of wines and spirits on offer.

Negative Reviews

No advance warning of the dress code.

A number of travellers discovered too late that the club has a strict dress code which prevented them from enjoying the common areas. Although guests stated that the code itself was not the problem, they would have liked a warning in advance about it so as to bring proper clothing.

Standard rooms are small with no air conditioning.

Reviewers reported that the standard rooms did not live up to the comfort standards of the rest of the club, noting that the accommodations lack air conditioning and get stuffy in the warmer months. These rooms were also said to be quite cramped, with visitors adding that the larger suites are worth the upgrade.

Not ideal for those with mobility problems.

The older building features an antique lift and a number of stairs to get into the building and to the reception area. Parking is also a walk from the club, which could be a problem for those with limited mobility.
