“care need for room selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Good spot at the top of Flinders street with a set of stairs next to the hotel to take you up to Flinders land and all the restaurants.
Good bar with open fire.
The rooms on 1 & guess 2nd floors have garage doors below them so suggest stay away from 113,115 & 116 if you don't like doors going up & down.
also 1 floor rooms although nicely laid out only have a small TV and are generally dark rooms.
Internet was free but not quick.

Room Tip: higher up would be better

Dear guest,

It is now the time of year to appreciate our open fire. Really glad to hear that you did !

I apologise if you were disturbed by a door opening and closing. It would be our loading bay door that disturbed you. We have had this serviced so thank you for bringing it to our attention.

We are planning to upgrade our TV’s very soon along with some of the other room features.


We trust that we can look forward to welcoming you back.


Best wishes,


Anne Marie Lennon

Spent two nights here - what a great location, easy to walk to most places you might need and near the trams if you need to go farther afield. I love design hotels - and thought the interiors were well executed and very cool. The staff at reception were very friendly and attentive - loved thier multiskilled capability at reception and in the bar (which is one and the same - the bar wraps around the back of the desk creating a great multifunctional space). Nothing better than a receptionist who can make a mean mojito (we had 6 - they were absolutely fab!!). The room was spacious and very comfortable - particulalry the bed. Bathroom was huge and easy to use - a dream after having so many bathrooms that are too small to even rest your toothbrush. I would recommend this hotel any time - the stay was too short.

Service: Upon arriving at our room, we decided we wanted a different room type and our request was handled quickly and courteously (thank you, Alex).

Room: On a particularly pleasing note, our room was incredibly quiet; virtually no street/hallway noise (maybe the extra-thick doors help). The room itself was fairly large and well laid out, with decent closet/drawer space and a useful entryway.

Location: Perfect for us, in the downtown corner, easily walkable to amazing restaurants, bars, street art, shopping, Flinders St. Station, etc.

Con: Our one (minor) complaint: we never saw a sidewalk doorman to help with bags, which would be particularly helpful given the small staircase (no ramp) leading up to the lobby.

and now is a cute boutique hotel.
Very good location and lovely breakfast facing a main street with vibrant people watching opportunities. Very nice open bar behind the reception area
and an antique pool table set up and ready to play if you feel so inclined.

Room Tip: I liked the first floor because we could easily run up the open staircase instead of waiting for the...

Dear guest,

Thank you for your recent comments.

We agree that the hotel is in a really great location in Melbourne for all city attractions with easy access via public transport.

It is fantastic to learn that you enjoyed the bar area and breakfast in the morning. I trust you enjoyed a game on the full sized billiard table !

My husband and I have stayed at this property several times but were a little disappointed this time over the entire Easter holiday (4 nights).

Like another reviewer "darrensugden", we too had issues with the Bed ... the size for starters was like a Double Bed, the mattress was really hard and uncomfortable and had no mattress topper, the Bedhead had a terrible stain on it, plus I nearly stepped on an open safety pin on the carpet ... not good enough when you are paying over $350 AUD per night room only! Our requested newspaper was not delivered on any day and when my husband telephoned reception to query this, the staff member advised that "The Age was not printed today" ... he later found "The Age" sitting in the lobby ... clearly printed!! There was no milk in our fridge on arrival plus housekeeping would, some evenings, provide the turn down service and on other evenings NOT.

Overall, the staff seemed uninterested and the "personalised service" (clearly described on the Hotel's website) was truly lacking.

We decided not to eat at the Hotel as there are numerous fantastic eating options within walking distance in and around Finders Lane i.e. Cumulus, Chin Chin, Brunetti's etc.

Unfortunately, we will stay elsewhere when visiting Melbourne next.

Dear guest,

I am so disappointed to read your comments and find that as previously loyal guests you were disappointed with your stay over Easter.

We are planning to upgrade all of our beds this year to king as I appreciate that this is an expectation along with mattress toppers. Clearly the standard of housekeeping during your stay was not acceptable and was not up to our normal standards. I apologise and can assure you that your feedback has been taken very seriously.

I also apologise for the fact that you didn’t receive your requested newspaper in the morning, again this is not an acceptable level of service.


I would love to have an opportunity to redeem ourselves in your eyes. If you would like to discuss in more detail please feel free to contact me directly.

Once again I apologise that you had such a disappointing stay.


Best wishes,


Anne Marie Lennon

First time at this hotel. Loved it from the time we arrived. Room was large and comfortable. Staff were pleasant, professional and helpful. The small number of guests clearly provides an intimate ambiance and the full size snooker table, complete with Lindrum paraphernalia is a winner. We will definitely return.
