The hotel is also a pub. The staff were really friendly and helpful and informed me when I booked in that they had a live band that night and the pub was open until late. The room was clean, but overlooked the main road in Melbourne and was loud with revellers leaving the pub and the road from about 06.30. I guess on a week day, it probably would not have been as noisy. Also, not their fault, but it is under a flight path for the near by airport.
Hi bed and breakfast was great, stay was nice, comfortable, breakfast was lovely, hosts very friendly, bedroom a little warm in morning, heating would not go off, but was a really hot day, parking a little tight at the side, but road was quiet out the front to park, at, when we came back late after the wedding. Only thing i would say is, that online when I booked I put two adults and one child aged (1+) and it totaled £ but when leaving was asked if I had booked double, not a family booking which I had not, but on the print off said two adults(which I had mentioned to my husband but we thought it was because my daughter was under 2, but I definitely put 1 child 1+, was not asked for paper work on arrival for booking, was mentioned by host on leaving, we paid £5 extra as we did not mind but I definitely think there was an error on system when booking, It just made it feel a little awkward, as when booking this would not have been a problem.
The hotel was lovely, staff always seemed chatty and friendly and the room was just fine.
Breakfast was lovely and it was really tidy, gotta say it's the staff who make it special as they really were great,
Only thing I would suggest is checking the booking before you arrive as they didn't have ours down when I called beforehand.

Overnight stop enroute to destination. Staff very friendly and helpful. Pleased to find room including the settee-bed made ready for our daughter. Good size room. Despite being busy it was very quiet. Reasonable level of comfort for both beds. Breakfast included was adequate and eaten in pleasant surroundings. We will use Holiday Inn Express again. Very impressed by quality.
