Brilliant stay. Brilliant layout of the apartment and plenty of room.  Kitchen well equipped. Kids loved the Foxtel (we don’t have Foxtel at home so for them this was a bonus).

Excellent location and apartment was very quiet.  (12th floor) Very impressed with security and friendliness of staff.  Very helpful.  Staff very friendly and competant when first I contacted them by phone for enquiries.  Nothing too much trouble.  When I booked information and verification was emailed to me immediately.  Thanks for a great stay.  Will definately stay again.

Ms Burnham 21/04/08

'I am more than willing to give you feedback on Darling Towers.  We have stayed in Darling Towers Apartments now for 6 or 7 years, and continue to return.  We love the position, the people are always friendly, helpful and efficient and we will continue to return each year.  I think by keeping the price affordable you will always attract people.

If I had to give an overall rating - I would say 8 -10.  The only reason I did not say 10 is that the first time we stayed there the unit had just been refitted and it was all quite new.  Each time we return we probably notice a little more wear and tear, however we still find it very convenient.'

Mrs Haupt 15/04/08

'Good spot, good staff, happy to come again'

The person whom spoke to my wife originally made note of the fact we needed a tea strainer and organised one for us, I was very impressed by this and they should be congratulated on their customer service.”

Mr Wilkinson 30/11/07

"My husband, my father-in-law, my mother and myself have just recently returned from Melbourne.  I would just like to thank you for the enjoyable stay in Darling Towers (the South Yarra accommodation).  We loved the apartment and were most appreciative of the kindness and consideration given to our request to be moved from the top floor as our elderly companions found the stairs quite daunting.  Thank you for this- it made our stay so much more pleasant. We found that the location was ideal and allowed us to use public transport to explore Melbourne easily and in a relaxed fashion."

Ms Panhaligan 04/08/07

"I just recently stayed for two nights at your apartments at 30 Murphy Street, and both myself and friend were very impressed. A beautifully maintained block in a quiet and handy location and the apartment itself was light, airy and very comfortable with all the modern facilities. On Check in and out, your staff members were professional and made us feel very welcome. Darling Towers is an apartment block I would stay at again and one I would recommend to others."

A. Small - 4/12/06

"My Wife & I would like to thank you very much for the wonderful stay we
had  over the weekend at the Murphy St Apartments in South Yarra. We were on  vacation in Melbourne to attend the wedding of a close friend, and also  to  catch up with some relatives from my family. Everything was accessible and  we  thought South Yarra was a nice location to stay, our children loved the  glittery lights on the trees along the streets, and we were very happy  with  the choice of restaurants close by. We made it home safely from the  reception  which was held close by on Boathouse Drive. We would be most happy to chose  you for our accommodation on return to Melbourne in the future."

Alan & Elisa - 11/10/06

j. Phillips - 15/05/06

"Whilst visiting Melbourne with friends, four of us stayed at the Darling Towers on Collins for two nights. The central location is excellent as it is close to shops and restaurants. The best thing about the rooms within the hotel is that they were very quiet. We couldn't hear noise from the street or from the corridor and other rooms. The room was clean and well-maintained. Staff were friendly and we did not have any complaints. I would highly recommend these apartments to people staying in the Melbourne CBD."

Canberra Guest - 03/05/06

"I just wanted to thank-you for the upgrade you so generously gave me. ...It was an unexpected  wonderful surprise."

Mrs Tanner - SPI Housing - 31/04/06

"We stayed here for one night on the 26th Dec 2005. After a 24 hour flight we were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready when we arrived at 10AM. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. The location is excellent basically on the corner of Collins and Swanston. The only thing lacking would be a pool. I would definitely stay here again as it was excellent value for money."

London UK Guest - 23/01/06

We stayed here for 3 nights on a sightseeing trip to Melbourne. We had absolutely no problems! Upon arrival to the room, we noticed that tea, coffee and fresh milk had been provided - this was a nice gesture and we really appreciated a cup of tea to relax with!
The staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a large apartment with modern fittings but there wasn't a great view! The apartment is a 3 minute walk to the main train station and Federation Square. There is a tram station just next to the hotel as well. However, the apartment was not noisy.
We were happy with the service and the value for money as well, and the convenience of being in the city centre. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

Machester Guest - 29/12/05

"Good place to stay, and we've got free upgrade which made us so happy. I'd like to stay again when I'll visit Melbourne. "
