Mobile banking is unavailable at least once a month. It is ridiculous
I have been with this bank for about 5,years. I get so annoyed when mobile banking is not working. It is such an inconvenience because I cannot transfer funds and it's something I do on a daily basis
Best Bank By Far!
I have been with this bank for only a short time now after switching from Commonwealth (AKA the worst financial institution known to mankind) and I have to say that it was a great decision, and I have zero regrets since! The customer service is top notch on the few occasions I have had to call, the branches are clean and well-maintained (take notes CommBank!) and the fees upon fees I was accustomed to before are nonexistent. Very reasonable and competitive rates. It's also cool how they support many local ventures in Melbourne, like the new arts precinct for instance. Just overall a great bank, don't hesitate to switch!
Excellent customer service at Narre Warren branch in Fountain Gate
Renas Ismail assisted me recently with my travellers card issue. She was polite, resourceful, respectful! Renas listened carefully, looked and try to work out the issue on my mobile phone and even contacted a colleague for help!
Excellent customer service!
Thank you Renas!
Best experience and best service
We have got 3 loans with bank of Melbourne and always happy with them. never had any problems, recently purchased a house and Benjamin (the lending manager) was really helpful and caring , we had no drama. easy we got the loan, he really did his bets and just wanted say a big thank you to him.
I have been bank of Melbourne customer for years and never had any bad experiences.
After being swindled by a company that went into liquidation, Bank Of Melbourne pursued them and remunerated the amount that was owing to me. I cannot thank them enough, amazing due diligence.
Home Loan DEAL
Recently switched home loan from CBA to BOM. Right from the start the service from Airport West Branch Ravi has been outstanding. Very happy with the way BOM has organized my finances.
I have been with this bank more than 2 years. They are reliable also very professional. Their customer service is top of the mark. Highly recommend to get the service from them.
Best Customer Service and Friendly Staff
If you are a new migrate to Australia, Difficulties with opening a Bank Account or need a friendly and faster service then I am strongly recommending you to please visit the Bank of Melbourne. I had these experiences when I was opening my bank account, I visited twice CommonWealth and NAB Banks but they are not helpful at all.
After a long waiting at both banks, I finally give up on CommonWealth and NAB Banks. Then I went to the Bank of Melbourne, I get surprised how to differentiate this bank from the other two banks.
I was amazed by th...
I mostly use Karingal branch and Springvale or Parkmore and every time I walk in always great service but mostly Karingal branch from day one back in 2008 with our house approved then for our second hand car only 4% and just recently 3 years on our house at 2.28 we walk in and all papers ready to sign was great and all the staff very helpful.
Home Loan process is really bad and error prone
I had refinanced from NAB to Bank of Melbourne since Feb 2020 based on the advice of a NPFS mortgage consultant, the overall loan process then was smooth. However the recent loan application handling has been really shabby and painful where they double deposited the loan amount to me, withdrew it, did not close the previous loan and worse after all the rectification after I had called out they messed up my offset account to normal transaction account thus increase in my repayment fee. Yet there has been no apologies who call from Bank about the trouble, really bad customer experience. I will immediately change the loan once the fixed deposit tenure ends or if other bank can offer better deal.
Great Service at BOM Caroline Spring
I am with the bank for a while. Every staff is friendly, always smile greeting to you when you walk in the branch. I was served by Rebecca who is extremely kind and helpful with all my queries and concerns.
IVANHOE Bank of Melb in the best position in Ivanhoe, moved from ANZ and Westpac to this branch. efficient and helpful
Found Bank Of Melbourne Ivanhoe to be one of the best and efficient branch ever. Moved my account from Westpac and ANZ that are old and dark to this great branch,
Helpful staff that go out of their way. Pity its temporarily closed due to Covid but once things get to normal will start going back. This Branch is helpful, clean and efficient in a great position.
Seems like it's getting longer to process transactions to your own different account
It used to be no longer than one business day for BPay . It's now 2-3 business days to process BPay transactions to your own different account with another bank. Covid-19 has definitely affected the productivity on bank employees sadly!
EDIT - I received the credit the next business day itself and thought I should give them the due credit . Had I not been on top of this would have taken 2-3 days for sure
Home loan fail
I've been a customer with bank of Melbourne for over 13 years with a homeloan on my first property. Recently tried refinancing another homeloan I had that was with another institution and was rejected because of 14k of HECS my wife and I collectively have. To reject a loan based on 14k of hecs is ridiculous. I will refinance with someone else and will be taking both my loans with me. I have an excellent credit history and an LVR of 65% on loan to be refinanced and 50% LVR on the other. This is poor form and is exactly how you lose customers. Loyalty doesnt mean anything or common sense.
JASON PHAN ,Glen Waverley Branch,Glen Shopping center 3150
Jason Phan, lending manager at the Glen Waverley Branch ,Glen Shopping centre 3150 , is a young man who has given me back my faith in big banks . His professional approach to solving complicated problems in a simple process has fascinated me. I was seeking an investment loan that I knew was drawing a lot of energy, but from the beginning of the process I had a good feeling that Jason knew what he was doing and was 100% focused on the job. The process of getting the loan took a while, but thanks to Jason, everything was fine from start to the settlement . BOM ,you need more people like Jason Phan, ranging from relationships with people to professionalism in doing your job.
Jason Phan , big Thank you

Make sure all your details are in, even you date of birth, who you have loved in your life, who you have met on trains, where you have lived, & who with, whatever you can think of, even if you dye your hair...... They are so fanatical, it's mad.....&.. YOU have to tell them, THEY DON'T ASK You!! They are so protective of themselves, they want to know what brand knickers you are wearing, & when you last washed them.............. Is all that safe? Not always, I'm still waiting! 2wks Late already! Grrrrrr!!!!! Take a list of this with the answers, as they DO NOT ASK YOU!!! GRRR! But, end of the day, the Staff are nice... It's their idiotic system, They should have a list of queries too!
I am not sure but I would recommend going to Westpac and opening a Westpac Choice Account and a Westpac eSaver account since you get better interest on those accounts.
