If you are travelling to Melbourne in Australia you’ll want to get some advice on great places to stay. Melbourne is a large and sprawling city. You can stay in the city (and pay more) or just a few km out into the suburbs and catch yourself some accommodation bargains.
You’ll find the standard hotel style lodgings in the CBD (with the concierge and over-rated restaurants and fat bill at the end of the journey) or you can keep your cash in your pocket for more spending and stay guesthouse-style instead with modest but comfortable rooms and friendly staff who enjoy serving you.
The hotel that everyone’s talking about is Claremont Guesthouse Hotel. It has no equal in Melbourne for clean, secure and friendly Melbourne accommodation on a budget. It has just won a 2008 achievers award for excellence in customer service!
Large groups love Claremont (especially sporting teams and schools). Groups can stay in dorm rooms, together on the same floor, and safety and respect for the well-being of all guests is paramount. The train to the CBD is just a round the corner, so getting around couldn’t be easier. Group accommodation is as hassle-free as you always wished it could be.
