Staff at reception were absolutely awesome, lovely friendly and very helpful. Great facilities! Clean and tidy with a cafe to grab a coffee, this was a very pleasant experience.

For anyone looking for a unique work function I'd recommend curling! My work group of 30 had the best time and we can't wait to go back.

I skate with the Coffee Club regulary and the ice is lovely and smooth and we have a great coach. But the only problem is the parking situation, very expensive.

I've been to the O'Brien Group Arena twice, and it's well run. It has nice staff that help you around the ice and that really helped. I will definitely go back.

Think we had about perfect seating, center of top row, though any middle seating would be ok. Keen to go again when next in Melbourne
