“A last minute salvation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Having checked out of the Ibis I called a trusty old favourite - The Lindrum. It was around 9pm and the hotel could accomodate me, and even negotiated down on the room rate given the time of day.
The Junior Suite was very comfortable, big bed, huge room and bathroom. Great DVD selection and lovely room service. Very attentive staff and a great nights sleep reminded me why this is still one of my Melbourne favourites.

We had a night out here, to just break up the week. It was a Tuesday but fully booked.
The room on the 4th floor, wad spacious and well thought out, only minor criticism was that a king size bed would have much better suited the room, the queen size bed somewhat was dwarfed by the room. The tea selection and the mugs were most appreciated. Drinks at he bar were great, the cocktails were perfect, the eclectic reading selection and games in the bar were great. Felt restaurant is a must do with great food and service. Yes the place is boutique and quirky, with creaky wooden floors but very welcoming. Free wifi is a bonus. Definitely worth the stay

A wonderful atmosphere and a great location to stay. We were off to a concert and could walk to the venue. After the concert a short walk to the Supper club for an after concert drink. Definitely stay again.

Just a lovely hotel, great location, friendly staff, cozy stylish rooms, close to great restaurants, nothing to fault really. Stayed twice already for couple getaway, staying again next month. Have not had brekky there, we think no point with city cafes at your doorstep! Parking prob an issue like with all CBD hotels, but we fly in and taxi or walk around.

Room Tip: Suites are very roomy and luxurious.

The staff at this hotel pushed my review from 2 stars, to 3. Sam at check-in and Ella at check-out went out of their way to be helpful and had a pleasant, courteous manner, unlike staff in some Melbourne hotels who think they are doing you a favour by serving you. I was particularly grateful for the attention shown in giving me a quiet room, which I had emailed the hotel about in advance.

The Queen studio was adequate for our purposes, although the strange floor matting detracted from the 'homeliness' of the room. As for the TV, what *is* that thing??? I don't think I've seen anything like that in a hotel for 10 - 15 years!!! The bed was quite hard and neither of us slept well on it. There was an old-fashioned wooden wardrobe in the room. Also a relic of times gone past, in a world of built-in robes.

The bathroom is pretty dated. Shower over bath and floorboards. Definitely needs some money spent on renovation.

The bar area is very pleasant, but at 7pm, they had run out of fresh limes! Understand Grand Prix time is busy, but even so, was a bit early to be depleted on a Friday night.

Room service was pretty average, my BLT arrived with bacon that must have been harvested from an obese pig - it was almost all fat. My friend's toasted chicken roll, was all bread and lettuce and we needed a microscope to find the chicken.

I would consider giving this hotel another go when the rooms and bathrooms have been renovated.

Room Tip: We were in room 404, which is a decent sized room and quite quiet, but looks out onto a wall, so not...

This is a great boutique hotel perfectly located to explore Melbourne from. It is an easy walk to Confederation Square, the free trolley and a nice walk to Victoria Market. In addition you have some of the best tapas restaurants seconds away as well as easy access to the highway for wine tasting in the Yarra Valley.
We had a lovely studio room with hard wood floors, high ceilings, a modern ensuite bathroom with great spa products , cozy robes and yes free internet. The breakfast buffet was excellent and
served in a lovely dining area. The front desk staff was exceptionally attentive and very helpful with reservations and travel information. One of our friends required medical attention and the staff set up an appointment within an hour with an excellent physician located minutes away .
Because the hotel is wedged between 2 buildings we didn't have a view from our window but really enjoyed the luxury of our room and the great service.

Nice Hotel with very comfortable room. Breakfast buffet slow to get service and selection often 'empty', so further wait required, especially as it costs a 'premium' to dine there. Parking challenging, as it costs a full day to park for any part of the day - going in and out four times in a single day = 4 days parking charge.

Dear guest,
Thank you for your feedback.

It is good to hear that you found the room comfortable. We apologise for the level of service you received at breakfast. Obviously the buffet should always be well presented and stocked.

Unfortunately as you are aware we don’t have a hotel car park- we do however have a negotiated rate with the car park next door which is considerably cheaper than the regular daily rates. They do charge per exit- I apologise again if this wasn’t made clear to you.
I hope this will not deter you from returning to the hotel.
Best Wishes,
Anne Marie Lennon
General Manager.
