“Staying at the Lindrum was like staying with a loving grandmother!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Just had a very enjoyable stay at the Hotel Lindrum in Flinders Street Melbourne.
Lovely, cosy, homely ambience but in a context of great professionalism by the staff.
Staff could not be more attentive and anticipated so many needs before they were spoken.
Room spacious, high ceilings. Food excellent. Can't wait to go again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your great feedback. We really do appreciate your comments and it is fantastic to learn that you appreciated the service we offer.

We are lucky that the building does have really ‘good bones’ and therefore high ceilings and doors which does add to the character of the hotel.

We look forward to your return visit.

Best wishes,


Anne Marie Lennon

This was our first stay in a boutique hotel and would love to stay here again. Staff were very helpful in directions around Melbourne. Very cozy bar area with fire place. So much more to do around the area that 2 nights just don't allow, 4 nights would be the perfect time to enjoy the Melbourne are with a park nearby on a sunny day is a must do.

We have often passed the Lindrum and have wondered what it's like inside. Not being fans of boutique hotels, we have never stayed here before. What a surprise! Behind that little facade and big, heavy door, is a modern, light filled hotel.
The lobby bar has a lovely (fake) open fire and comfy lounges, as well as Walter Lindrum's full size billiard table.
We had a deluxe room, on the top floor, overlooking Flinders Street. Apart from the occasional siren and the ubiquitous ringing of tram bells, it was surprisingly quiet. Our sleep was not affected at all.
The room itself was much larger than we expected: high celings and fairly big windows. There was enough room for a small table and several comfortable chairs. Surprisingly, however, there was only a queen bed. The TV was also quite small.
The bathroom, complete with bath and rainwater shower, was more than adequate. There was lots of room for toiletries on the vanity unit and several hooks and rails for hanging gowns and towels. Like the room itself, it was spotlessly clean.
The inclusion of upmarket T2 tea bags and top end toiletries, added to the five star feel. Coffee bags rather than those mean little sachets would have been good though.
Breakfast was delicious, served in the elegant Felt Restaurant.
The hotel is an easy walk to both Flinders Street Station and Parliament underground station. The tram stop, including the free City Cicle tram, is virtually right outside the door. It's also an easy and interesting walk to the centre of town, past all the lane ways full of tourists taking pictures of street art. Treasury Gardens are just around the corner.
All in all we had a great stay and will definitely return if we can get a similar deal.
Last but not least: Free wi-fi is most unusual for five star hotels in Australia, other high end hotels please note.

We stayed here for a weekend in late May with friends.
This was my first 'holiday' stay here but have styled here on business before, so I knew it was good.
We didn't eat at the restaurant as we were too busy, out and about.
Great location, walkable to Bourke st mall, Flinders lane restaurants, Hosier Lane (where our favourite, Movidas is ), I even walked via the MCG to Richmond, although that is a bit further. We walked back from Collingwood, via various parks. The free city loop tram is outside the front or, and its close to flinders st station and plenty of the city bike stands, if you need to get around.
We got good weekend rates directly from their own website, even cheaper Than via Expedia.A great place.
Ps, w had no kids with us.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the non-lane side. On a weekday, early morning garbage trucks make a lot of no...

After experiencing most of the Accor properties in Melbourne over the years this was the most pleasant "find" yet. Cosy & relaxed with nothing seemingly a problem or too much trouble for the helpful & multi skilled staff. Stayed for a weekend and therefore had the time to enjoy the surroundings, localty to sporting venues, art galleries , shops & restaurants. However, absolutely nothing to complain about the food here either ! Can understand while all categories of traveller would find the Lindrum a home away from home and have already recommended it to friends for their wedding anniversary. Now looking for any plausable excuse to return as soon as possible !

Room Tip: Rooms away from Flinders street are probably quieter but then don't have an outlook
