Negative Reviews

Pool area may not be very clean at times.

The indoor pool area, although big, may have some issues when it comes to cleanliness. It isn’t well maintained, and those who are very particular with cleanliness may be discouraged from taking a refreshing swim. However, during times when the pool has just been recently cleaned, there are no problems at all.

Some facilities are a bit dated.

Melbourne Ardenlea is among the oldest hotels in the area, therefore, it should not come as a shock that some rooms are already a bit dated. Updating them will really help boost the hotel’s appeal to potential guests in the future.

Soundproofing is a bit poor.

It’s easy to hear noise from the outside, or from the neighbouring rooms. This makes it particularly inconvenient for light sleepers who easily wake up even with just the slightest of noise. To avoid this, you should choose a room far from any possible noise.
