“I've been returning to the Lindrum for 10 years now...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Brilliant old building conversion close to the right end of Collins Street. I like the larger rooms and high ceilings, the comfortable beds, the range of pillows, the timber floors - even in the bathrooms, the furniture, the billiard room, the restaurant, the staircase, the welcoming staff, the early morning strong cappucino in front of the fireplace, all signature Melbourne. If there was a Nespresso coffee machine in my room and a sound system that I could connect by Bluetooth it would be just perfect !

Room Tip: The rooms are all good...

Large rooms with high ceilings are a pleasant surprise.
The decor is designer-modern except for one small thing.
The televisions are tiny by todays standards - time for a widescreen refresh.
Our room, at the back of the building, was very quiet.

Room Tip: Free city circle tram right outside the front door!

Dear guest,

Thank you for your recent comments.

You will be pleased to learn that we are about to start a rooms refresh from next week which includes a TV upgrade as we recognise that our current screens are too small.

Hopefully we can welcome you back to experience the difference.

Best wishes,

I love historic buildings being converted in to good accommodation and this ticks all the boxes. Big rooms, high ceilings, comfy beds, good desk space and friendly, helpful staff. It is one minute from a tram stop and five minutes walk to Parliament train station and an easy walk to the heart of Melbourne. The only slightly odd thing is that reception is also the coffee bar but that is a minor quibble. I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms on Flinders street could get noisy on a weekend I think. Ask for one away from the road.

Dear guest,

Our building has so much history associated with it so we are really glad that you appreciated this aspect. We are as you state situated in within close proximity to public transport.

Thank you also for your comment in relation to the coffee machine being around the front desk. The reason is our staff are all multi- skilled and work in all areas – hence the team member who checks you out can also make you a coffee should you desire.

We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Melbourne.

Best wishes,
Anne Marie Lennon
General Manager.

When in Melbourne for both business and pleasure I stay at the Lindrum. Staff can't do enough for you - they are terrific! Size is great - comfort with some personality. Location is superb - fabulous restaurants, Fed Square and the "Tan" on your doorstep.

This is hotel that I would stay at anytime. Every time I go to a hotel now I measure it against this one. The service is impeccable, the rooms a high quality, the restaurant has fabulous food and the ambiance is divine. Small boutique hotel with out all the big flashy sterile surroundings.
Oh, and don't forget the soft beds and feather pillows!

We booked this hotel for our five-day visit to Melbourne with our youngest son. Hotel Lindrum is a wonderful example of understated comfort and luxury. Quality linen, towels, and toiletries. Subtle lighting and decor in the rooms.
Very nice bar area with cosy fire. Lovely breakfast.
Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Our room was at the rear of the building; no view, but very quiet.

We have stayed in many hotels in Melbournes CBD and we stayed at the Lindrum last week only because almost all of the accommodation in Melbourne had been booked out because of the Soccer and our usual hotels had no vacancies. When I rang the Lindrum they had just had a cancellation and we got the last room available for that night! Lucky for us.
We were heading to Melbourne to see the Monet exhibition and bought a package deal at the hotel for accommodation, breakfast and 2 tickets to the exhibition.
Wow, what a great hotel. Beautifully renovated with fantastic use of original timber, small and intimate, lovely staff and a great restaurant. It was only a short stroll to the gallery and the city but the location was remarkably quiet. We had a Superior King room, which was spacious and well appointed with very high ceilings which seemed to add to the overall feeling of space, the only down side I suppose was our view out of the window looked over the car park next door but that really was the only down side.
We were so comfortable in this hotel on what was a cold winters night that we decided to dine in at the restaurant, this turned out to be a great decision as the food was magnificent, the restaurant is small, cosy and welcoming. There is a lounge area with a fire and a huge billiard table guests can use, very comfortable.
The breakfast next day which was included in our package was great with generous portions and eggs cooked perfectly. We had a late checkout, 12 noon, and parking was next door in the public car park but only cost $16 once our ticket was validated by the hotel.
We will definitely be staying at the Lindrum again and consider it a real find and hidden gem.

Room Tip: Buy the Monet Exhibition package and get to the exhibition before 10am, we were able to bypass every...
