Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.

  • Excellent service from all sales and service staff, my only complaint is that they are hopeless at returning calls. If you leave a message for someone to call you back, don't expect for the call to be returned....just call back again.
  • Top service and assistance from the Bike Sales Manager - Keith Gilhooley. I highly recommend buying, trading in or just getting advice from him. Great bloke.
  • Go here if you like bmw motorbikes
  • Fantastic service! I came to Southbank BMW with my new BMW bike for a service because of 2nd rate service from another dealer and found their professional and friendly service just great and refreshing to see that good customer service orientated businesses still do exist! Well done to the guys on the front desks!
  • Great service and excellent people
