We stayed at The Adelphi at the end of a trip to Melbourne for two nights. We researched a few hotels in the area & also consulted a local friend.
We decided on the Adelphi because it stood out as being different & the style of the hotel along with the amenities sold it to us. We were not disappointed!
I'll list what we thought was great about this place:
Very friendly & helpful staff
Spacious, comfortable & stylish rooms, good quality furnishings & very comfortable bed = good sleep quality.
Extremely generous complimentary mini bar (softs) and Sweetie jar by Happy Lab (replenished every day).
Free movies! (Yes, free).
Great restaurant (Om Nom).
Heated roof top swimming pool.
I loved the leather clad lift.
Generous breakfast with coffee up to my exacting standards!
The staff allowed us a late check out with absolutely no indication of this being an inconvenience.
Normally we write a few things that we think a hotel could improve on but in this instance (apart from perhaps investing in a ramp for the few stairs at the front for guests that may have mobility difficulties) there's nothing else that The Adelphi could improve on.
To sum up. This hotel is in our all time top five ever!
