“Location very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We stayed here for three nights in February 2012 on our round the world trip. Good staff, very helpful, nothing too much trouble. Very close to MCG, Melbourne Cricket Ground, parks, shops and food out lets etc. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet, (ours was) we were on the first floor. This hotel was named after the snooker player who had numerous records to his credit. The snooker table, (not pool table) is original and had the pleasure of a couple of frames on it. If you are planning a visit to Melbourne this is a nice boutique hotel to stay at.

Room Tip: As we have said it is quiet, clean and the room is spacious, (ours was)

We stayed here for three nights during the Moomba long weekend. The hotel is well located and only a few minutes walk away from some excellent restaurants. The staff are welcoming and friendly. We made good use of the downstairs sitting areas and pool table -great area to relax. Our room was spacious with a very comfortable bed, good toiletries and spotless. Maybe next time we would spend more to have a room with a view.

A great location, easy to get to all major attractions. Lovely boutique hotel, fantastic rooms with the biggest most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! and beautiful quality bedlinen. The staff were fantastic, so helpful, great local knowledge but better still, really seemed to understand the type of bars and resturants we were looking for. There was a car park next door to the hotel (we were touring) which the hotel gets special rates on- $16 per 24 hours bargain!
would agree with other reveiws that they need to maybe replace a few carpets!
Would stay there again if we are ever back in

We stayed at the hotel Lindrum over the Easter period and it was the second time that I have stayed at the hotel, the first being for business. Firstly the hotel is located at the quieter end of town but still only a ten minute walk from the main shopping district.

The staff at the hotel are great and the restaurant 'Felt' is handy and serves a good selection of quality meals. The hotel is well decorated and feels very plush, however since my last stay in 2010 the hotel seems to have had little maintenance and our room, a junior suite was nice but a little disappointing. The carpet in the room was very badly stained and the bathroom had a sewage smell which would come and go. For a junior suite we both agreed that these things should be regularly checked and maintained. The bed was also very hard. The mini bar is one of the most expensive mini bars that we have ever come across - and we have stayed at luxury hotels across then world. Many hotels have re-evaluated the pricing of minibar items since the economic crash- however this doesn't seem to be the case with the Mirvac group. On a plus we had free wifi and access to a DVD library which was handy for a quiet night it.

To sum up. The Lindrum is a very nice hotel, with wonderful staff and we got a good rate for our stay. Just a few little tweaks and a bit of upkeep will see the hotel back to a very high standard.

This was my second visit to the Lindrum. It's a lovely boutique hotel in a heritage buidling in between Federation Square and Parilament (around the corner), a good part of town to stay. It's so nice to stay in a small hotel with beautiful interiors, and warm and inviting public spaces. Especially when it's cold and grey outside which Melbourne can be! The Lindrum has these in spades - the reception area is in the midst of two cosy lounge areas, big comfy couches, a bar and a warm fire. There's also a restaurant and pool table downstairs, all being well used during our stay.

We ate in the restaurant one night and it offered well priced and tasty food. Melbourne's a bit of a gourmet capital, but the restaurant fared well.

Our room was huge, with chaise lounge, tables and chairs, plenty of room for luggage (curiously not a given in many hotels) and very comfortable bed. All decorated in warm earthy tones. The bathroom was also well equipped and spacious. The only downside and this isn't the hotel's fault - is that the window blinds need to be kept permanently down as they overlook a well-lit car park. This gives the room a slighlty claustrophobic feeling if you're in there during the day.

All the staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, I'd go for a room at the front or back that has a bit of a view and isn...

Our last stay was at the Lindrum Hotel & it was great. The staff were super friendly, always assisting with whatever you needed. The room was quaint & very clean. Loved the ambiance of the hotel. You could hangout at the bar or rest on the sofa or even shoot a game of pool. The breakfast food was absolutely delicious. Very good location-close to the main train station (walking distance) & also to the tram stops. Would definitely suggest this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I have been coming here for several years and wouldn't stay anywhere else in the city. Our latest stay was for my wife's birthday and we couldn't have been more welcome. I love the ambience of this small hotel, including the bar and billiard area, the restaurant and the rooms, which are very comfortable. The staff are brilliant and the food in Felt (the restaurant where we had dinner as well as breakfast) is top notch. I love the location as well - really close to the Fitzroy and Treasury Gardens as well as the attractions of the top end of town.
