We were greeted with a smile and quickly shown to our room which was small but more than... More

Really enjoyed my first visit here when I sampled the Christmas menu. Staff were friendly, service was good and the atmosphere of the place was great - not too big and hectic. Would definitely recommend and I will be going back!

Loved our stay at Harpurs - the rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet considering that its on the main road. It's ideally located to have a stroll around the shops and boutiques that Melbourne has to offer. The food is very good and nothing is too much trouble for the staff, I will be back.

Ate evening meal in the bar and the food was of a fantastic quality...far exceeding your average pub grub. Particular thanks to John who was... More

We stayed for a short break and really enjoyed the restaurant cuisine. Would be a good stopover for E Mid airport, if you have the time. The village is remarkably interesting with several other very good bars and eating places. We would come here again.
