    Location was good for my purposes

    Room was hot, had no functioning air conditioning, bed was too soft. So had to open windows and it became loud with traffic in the early hours of the morning.

    Lily Sands is perfectly located in beautiful South Melbourne, we were lucky enough to have the Penthouse for our visit, it was really spacious. I’d highly recommend Lily Sands for your next stay in South Melbourne

    What breakfast? I bought my own. Free milk in L1 fridge isn't 'breakfast' (but was nice). The room and bed were comfortable, the location and price are good.

    I had no PIN to unlock the key to check in (late, after the reception staff leave). I managed to ring and get one, but at 10.30pm after airports/trains/taxis/navigating unknown streets for unknown doors, and trying to SEE the keypad in non-lit - or on/off security light conditions -was trying, stressful and unnecessary. PLEASE sort out your communication so anyone booking gets a PIN and knows they need this to get a key and check in out-of-hours. I didn't. One of the two window-winder latches is broken (not by me) - and all but useless, meaning that noise from the street comes into room 7. The remote control is busted (not by me) - a piece of gaffer tape holds the battery enclosure catch in place; but not tightly. It worked once for on/off - but no more. Luckily the TV has side buttons or I'd have had no TV/radio. I didn't for night one (of 4), until I worked this out.
