Due to a good online deal and with it being only a 25 min drive from the airport, we decided to stay at The Blackman prior to flying OS. Check in was quick and effortless and we found the staff to be most friendly and helpful. Our Studio Suite with balcony was small but clean, tidy and nicely furnished with... More

From the moment the hotel pulled up to the hotel to the moment they sent me off in a cab to the airport, the hotel staff impressed me with their exceptional service. It was a pleasant "upgrade" from the service level I've experienced in their sister hotel in Sydney just a day before. The room was well-decorated with light colours.... More

We stayed in room 1309. On arrival at 2.20 we were told our room wasnt ready but a very polite man at reception offered us coffee and we didnt have to wait very long. We found the staff all very pleasant and the suite comfortable apart from the fact that the lighting in the room is so poor. Luckily my... More

I recently stayed at the Blackman hotel on St Kilda road for work. I was initially greeted by very friendly staff on arrival, I had arrived very late and they were excellent with quick check in and great food options. Rooms are of an extremely high quality and the restaurant and cafe down stairs do great breakfast and dinner. Highly... More

We booked room 1801 , the penthouse for a special night away. My husband and I did arrive quite early for check in as we had travellled from our home in the country. Unfortunately the room wasnt available so we wandered around for a few hours (in the cold ) and arrived back at the hotel at 2pm. However, the... More

Not the best options for the business traveler. I love the position, the decor and the room standards full marks. Wonderful if you want a romantic and private escape. Doing business is different outcome. I have stayed here on a number of occasions and will probably stay here again. The downside, on this occasion, I tried the Bay Suite on... More

I really enjoyed this very short business trip - just overnight really. I did however get to experience the room both restaurants and the gym. All were really very good. The gym was smallish though we'll equipped and with modern equipment. The room was large and with a balcony though I did not actually go outside! I had a light... More

The hotel was easy to find once I ignored the GPS. Upon entry was pleasantly surprised at the look of the place. The room was SPOTLESS, the location was perfect for us, a quick drive to docklands or the city, St Kilda a short drive the other way, tram not far from the door. Noise was not an issue until... More

I read all the reviews before staying here and I have to say it's not worth the hype. I paid for a studio deluxe room with balcony very small room and view of what a brick wall so no use of having a balcony! Bathroom cleanliness left a lot to be desired. I was woken at 4.18am by loud music... More

Absolutely my favourite hotel in Australia! I'm a regular here for work, but love the styling, comfy beds and overall feel of this hotel. The quirky style is perfect, sophisticated yet friendly. Very trendy but not arrogant. The staff are always fantastic and the busy little French cafe is best for breakfast or coffee and a bite on the run.... More
