We felt like country squires on arriving at the Hatton Hotel in the Domain a stone's throw from the Royal Botanic Gardens and Toorak Road. Our room was charming featuring vintage furniture and fittings, crisp white bedding and luxurious toiletries. I loved throwing open the wooden shutters and pushing out the windows for a stimulating view across the Melbourne skyline.... More

Wanted to let the TA community know that unfortunately this hotel is closing as of tomorrow - if you visit their site, hatton.com.au, you'll be directed to a hotel nearby. I feel very very sad as the Hatton was our home away from home in Melbourne and we loved everything about it. We'll miss the wonderful breakfasts on the balcony,... More

A beautiful historic hotel in South Yarra with a very convenient tram stop right at the door, providing easy access into central Melbourne. Friendly and helpful staff, and a very good continental breakfast. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom - only bad point was that the mini bar fridge was surprisingly loud at night. We would... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely hotel in one of the nicest streets in South Yarra just off the Botanical Gardens - and with a tram stop just outside the door, so easy access into central Melbourne. Friendly and helpful staff, and a very good continental breakfast. The only small problem was no lift, so perhaps don't stay... More

We were sent to room 6, a small room in the back basement section near the rubbish bins. Paint peeling from the bathroom ceiling, a mini refrigerator near the bed that was so noisy that it had to be unplugged at night so we could sleep. Getting in and out of the bathtub/shower was problematic - it is set very... More

Stayed for three nights to take in the sights of Melbourne and catch up its friends. The Hatton is a boutique hotel in a historic building in South Yarra just outside the Melbourne CBD. Great location with lovely parks at either end of the street, there is a tram stop outside and is only a few stops from the CBD... More

some consider boutique hotels to be very high end. Well, the Hatton is a boutique in that it has character , perfect location and friendly staff that remembered our names and what we drank for breakfast. Great to be outside of CBD, so that you get local restaurants, and walking around the neighborhood is a delight. Our room was large,... More

What a great find! I booked three rooms (two for three nights and one a Saturday night stay only) and everyone in my group had the same to say. The rooms are spacious and airy with their enormous ceilings. Bed linen is crisp and comfortable. Lovely waffle robes to lounge in armchairs in our room or after a bath. My... More

Nice small boutique hotel. Don't miss the rooftop terrace for a view of Melbourne skyline. The hotel is in walking distance of the botanical garden and a number of cafes around the corner. Best rooms are facing the back.

This hotel came highly recommended by friends and indeed there were lots of positives: nice linen and towels; designer toiletries; a high standard of cleanliness; good coffee; nice breakfast; the tram at the doorstep; shops and restaurants just minutes away. Not so positive were the hard, lumpy bed and the buzzing of the room fridge which was just one of... More
