Australian Open Tennis Accommodation

With the Australian Open tennis tournament starting in Melbourne today, here's a quick update on how the accommodation market is looking.

The first week is always busier than the second and this is definitely the case this year. Many of the 4 and 4.5 stars properties have very limited availability over the first week and this weekend is the hardest of all to secure accommodation at a reasonable rate. Many of the 5 stars have plenty of availability still but their rates are of course a bit more expensive.

If you need accommodation let us know as we can find a number of great value options still. We have a few rooms up our sleeve for this weekend, much cheaper rates than is currently available on last-minute websites.

As for the action on-court. While the favourites are no doubt Nadal and Federer, I'll be going for in-form Scotsman Andy Murray (pictured below) to hopefully break through for his first major title.
