Anonymous Couples - 12/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was lovely and the staff were very helpful. The only reason I haven’t scored better was due to the limited staff and facilities during the Covid crisis. Obviously there was no food and beverage and there was a skeleton staff. However the staff there were wonderful and the room was perfect for our stay. The location is good but a major construction site outside the window with a large manned crane impacted in the privacy and view

Hello Seamus, Thank you for the honest review of our hotel, we are pleased that you had a positive experience when dealing with our staff. We are working hard to improve our offering during these times, but we do hope to welcome you back soon when we return to some normality.

My wife and I stayed at The Olsen for a couple of nights after our wedding day, and the experience was just brilliant. Comfortable room, and great amenities. The staff was also very accommodating with a late check out for us. Would love to visit again

I booked this hotel for a night away for my husbands birthday. We live in regional Victoria and had a meal booked in Melbourne. This hotel was a perfect location for access to the city and Chapel St.

Gabrielle Couples - 06/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We booked in for my husband's 60th birthday. We were given a complimentary bottle of wine, which was much appreciated. The initial room allocated was quite cramped for a 2 night stay & due to COVID we were limited in our movements. We were upgraded without much fuss on request. Unfortunately, COVID dampened the feel in general & limited our access to services, which is no one's fault, just a reality in these times. It would be nice to visit again and use the facilities as advertised, when we are allowed .

Hi Gabrielle, Thanks for the review. It is a shame due to COVID we were unable to give you the great Olsen experience we normally want for our guests. As you mentioend, we would love to welcome you back again in the future once everything is opened! Thanks again Kind reghards, Brad Vivian

Kathryn Couples - 01/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Enjoyed our stay, loved that we could open a window for fresh air. Nice to have a coffee machine but was disappointed that there was no mini bar or we couldn’t order any drinks on room service.

I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.

Will A. Business - 01/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I’ve stayed a lot with you (...and other Art Series hotels) and arrived late at night. Put in a pretty small room when there must have been other rooms available that didn’t smell like a sewer. I always wonder how hard it would be to just go to the room before a guest arrives and check it, turn the lights on, turn the bed down etc?? Is that reasonable feedback? The other day, I stayed at QT Melbourne...without being asked they upgraded me to a bigger, better room because there were rooms available. Which hotel do you think I’ll stay at next time and recommend to friends?

Excellent service

Joshua F. Couples - 27/06/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Had an excellent stay, staff were extremely friendly and helpful, from the receptionist at front desk to the cleaning and maintenance staff. We did note that there was a guest who was extremely rude to your staff, and they handled it very professionally, more so than I would’ve been able to.

Hi Joshua, Thank you for the great review of our hotel, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your experience with us. I will pass along your feedback to the team and give a thumbs up for their great 'guest handling' skills - not always an easy task, but we take the good with the bad. If we can assist in the future please do not hesitate to reach out. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Kind regards, Brad Vivian

John N. Solo - 26/06/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I like your hotel and the Concierge staff are exceptional. Maybe it’s the issue of Covid 19 and the disruption to staff but as a 30 to 40 night e year guest it’s disappointing to have to regularly move rooms to get away from the noisy clonking of the lift mechanism on the upper floors, regularly find no blanket in the room, a second towel in the bathroom, Or no tissues under the sink. I even had an empty tube of body wash in my shower recess in this last stay. Perhaps the fact that I backed into a concrete pillar and damaged my car has contributed to my negativity. I’ll put it all down to Covid shall I? See you next stay.

Unfortunately I received no towels no toilet paper and a bathroom that had not been cleaned after the previous guest the basin and floor were really dirty This was particularly disturbing considering COVID-19

Catherine B. Families - 25/06/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

After worrying that a stay in a hotel during Covid times would be stressful Nick and the rest of the front desk staff were fantastic. Friendly and helpful I had a great stay. The Olsen is in a fabulous location with plenty of cafes and restaurants open in the area . I always look forward to my stays there
