we stayed at hotel Lindrum recently as we wanted a good hotel within walking distance to the MCG and everywhere else was fully booked. The hotel is quite nice, boutique style, but realistically it is very overpriced. Whilst the staff were efficient we did not find them particually inviting. In fact the atmosphere was all a bit cold. If you can get a good budget deal I would recommend but don't pay the standard rate here - I wished we had paid less and walked further for our accommodation.
