Great location, 100 m walk to tram stop, charming style and friendly staff. Room was stylish, clean and warm. We liked the old fashioned reading room, with daily newspapers. Most impressed with staff member offering to drive us to St Kilda - thank you Ray!

I chose this hotel due to its proximity to the Alfred Hospital. I was in town for a conference and was able to walk from this location. My stay was comfortable, the location is convenient. It is a bit more expensive than some locations, but the hotel has a unique feel due to its age. I was disappointed to know... More

This hotel is staffed by some pleasant reception ladies who were very helpful and even carried my bags up the stairs as there is no lift. All in all the best thing about this place is its character old building, unfortunately the rooms, beds, food, bar service etc was rather poor, however as a place to lay your head it... More

The hotel was wonderful, with a real old world charm. The staff were very helpful and friendly, we couldn't find any fault with this hotel, the... More

This is an amzing piece of Melbourne's history that apparently is to be "re-tasked" to be part of an new apartment block in March 2016. One of the last remaining St Kilda Rd mansions, this former mansion is now a quaint boutique hotel with much of it's history still available to be experieinced. The rooms , while modernised, still retain... More

Perfect place to spend a night or two, tram at front door to either city or St Kilda. Comfortable bed, linen and bath facilities very clean. We visited on a cold June night and the room was warm and welcoming. Full cooked breakfast or an array of cereals, fruit and pastries. Staff were very courteous and welcoming, would recommend this...

This is a very enjoyable little hotel, look at the pictures online, it is what you get. The rooms are small but the overall experience is great. The location is fantastic, very close to Albert park for a walk or jog around the lake. Right in front of the tram directly to downtown in about 15mn! Can also walk there... More
