“Character-filled hotel in good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

I travel for business a lot, and recently had the opportunity to stay at Hotel Lindrum. It is a beautiful hotel with spacious rooms (and cozy bathrooms) and an enjoyable accompanying restaurant. Its warm décor (and fireplace) is perfect for a winter weekend in Melbourne. Most importantly (for business travel) it has some character, rather than the same-old same-old that you find in a lot of hotels that cater to business clientele.

Loved this hotel! It had a tonne of character and we got an excellent rate.

Room was clean and spacious. Had an excellent bath and shower. The TV was on the small side but we didn't plan to watch much TV so was not really an issue.

Will definitely be staying here again during future visits to Melbourne.

I'm always a little hesitant paying out money to stay at hotels as in the past I’ve had some bad experiences with noisy neighbours keeping me up all night. Hotel Lindrum was not one of these hotels. As soon as I walked into the foyer, it was like entering a little cocoon. Yes, you hear the rumble of the tram as it passes by, and yes you hear the muffled chitter chatter of people walking down the hallway to their room, but that is where the noise stops. It was heaven! I loved this hotel. It was cosy, modern yet liveable with a touch of class. A little worn around the edges, but I felt this added an extra element to the place – it felt well loved. I’ll definitely be back.

Room Tip: My room overlooked the carpark, which didn't worry me in the slightest as I wasn't staying t...

Happy to have "found" this hotel, lots of character, loved the timber floors and staircase, and especially the gas log fire in the bar/lounge, very comfy and relaxing to have a drink on a cool night. It was clean and spacious, though no outlook. We took advantage of a special deal so it was fantastic value at this time. Thoroughly recommend it.

I would call the Hotel Lindrum a boutique hotel. It has all the comforts of a large hotel on a smaller scale which translates to great comfort and excellent service. The hotel is tastefully decorated and has a very understated luxury feel about it. The staff are very efficient and friendly and multitask so over three days I came to recognize the staff and they were all professional and friendly. My room was a standard room and was well equipped with everything I needed. I particularly
Iiked the range of products in the bathroom. I will definitely stay at Hotel Lindrum in the future when I travel to Melbourne.

I keep coming back to this place. The location at the top of Flinders Street is brilliant, the ambiance is relaxed and stylish, the staff are helpful and they look after their regular customers, which is a red button issue for me. On my last trip I got upgraded to a front room overlooking the sporting precinct of Yarra Park and the room was just great. I will keep going back as its my Melbourne home away from home.

Room Tip: Front rooms overlooking Flinders street have the best view but if traffic sounds bother you ask for...

A friend suggested this boutique hotel when we were looking for accommodation in Melbourne for a conference at the Melbourne Convention Centre. Research on the internet indicated that it would be roughly a half an hour walk to the convention centre. Upon check in at reception, the staff member said it would only take about 10-15 minutes. In reality, it took us closer to 30 minutes. The walk was pleasant, a lovely way to enjoy the city along the Yarra River. Trams and taxis are always an option. Reception staff were helpful in assisting with calling for taxis.
The room itself is spacious with plenty of seating. Classical music playing in the room was a wonderful way to welcome us upon our arrival. Special touches include a little sweet treat wrapped in cellophane on the bed when we returned in the evenings. We stayed in a twin room on the fourth floor for three nights. Traffic noise was audible from inside the room which was slightly disturbing. The beds were fairly comfortable.
A 30 day advance payment rate of just under $167 per night was considered good value for this property.
