The staff were rude and pretentious with absolutely no reason to be, this unfortunately detracted from the good quality of the room and overall experience. For the money this hotel cost you could experience a lot better. Would not recommend and will not be returning.

Solo traveller exploring Melbourne and really enjoyed stay at The Blackman. SO comfortable beds and away from the central Melbourne traffic etc yet still easy to get to and from CBD (including shuttle hotel puts on). Love the cafe and restaurant on site. Great 2 night stay.

My wife and I stayed at The Blackman on our wedding night. The Blackman team gave us the Penthouse Suite which made our wedding night even more special. When we arrived at 2am we were greeted warmly by a very friendly staff member. He congratulated us and told us that we were able to get a late checkout so that... More

I stayed here with my husband and 2 young children in the Chess Suite. The Chess Suite was tastefully decorated with gorgeous artwork and it was very spacious for us all. The bed was so comfortable and I fell asleep in an instant! The staff made us feel very comfortable and at home and the hotel is well positioned and... More

Great looking hotel in a fantastic spot for visitors to Mlbourne. This hotel would be a particularly sound choice for those interested in the Formula 1 GP. Loved the modern rooms, and the views from the higher floors are great. Comfy beds, well equiped kitchenette and plenty of space. This hotel has an undeniably 'cool' factor which young and old...

My partner and I stayed here again recently, and were still just as amazed with the level of comfort and service as the first time. The first thing that continuously blows us away is the level of service we encounter from their staff. Having arrived fairly late in the evening, we were greeted by a friendly gentleman who was so...

As my booking overnight at the Blackman was dictated by my company's preferences and also proximity to the office (A five minute stroll from 1 Queens Road) my expectations were not extremely high. As I checked in, the thoroughly professional staff made me feel welcome as did the modern and luxurious decor. Initially I was concerned that my room was... More

We stayed 4 nights over a weekend in a delux room. Can honesty say that this is the best hotel experience we have had for many years. The "themed" nature of the hotel and inclusion of a selection of books in the room made the experience more delightful. Added to this, the French café and restaurant downstairs made eating a... More

We stayed recently for four nights over a weekend. We usually stay at a preferred hotel on Southbank but decided to move out of our comfort zone and stay at the Blackman. Contemporary would be the word I would use to describe the hotel. The room and lounge we booked was very nicely appointed and the only downside was the... More

We absolutely loved our recent stay at The Blackman. It provided a fabulous escape from the searing Melbourne heat over summer and even though we had a little one in tow, we really enjoyed our few nights of luxury. The central location, gorgeous reception, wonderful bar / restaurant, fantastic service and a beautifully decorated room with a separate sleeping alcove... More
