“Business Personal Double Act”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Recently stayed for 5 nights, 2 for business and 3 personal for the weekend. Refurbished boutique hotel in a fabulous central city location, just down from Flinders Station. For work the hotel is great as there is a drive way for easy pick up drop off if required. My first room was quite small, but adequate and well kitted out. For the weekend when my sister turned up I moved to a larger corner room which was a much better size, in fact, would have been better for the whole visit. Turn left outside the hotel, and a short walk gets you to one of the restaurant/cafe alley ways for which Melbourne is famous. Walk all the way through the alley and you get to Collins, Little Collins and Bourke St shops and malls. Ahhh! Heaven. Definitely would stay again.

I have stayed in a number of hotels while on business trips in Melbourne for over a decade and this is one of the best. It is a characterful hotel but still well appointed and maintained. Dinner at the Straits Cafe was very good quality, both the meal and the service. The proximity to Flinders Street Station was also a big plus. Very enjoyable!

My wife booked us in for an Anniversary weekend retreat - could not have picked a better hotel!

From the staff in top hats to the deep leather chairs to the view of Southbank ...... all was wonderful. Used it as a base to explore the city (lived here 10 years but never wandered the alleys like a tourist), didn't try the in house dining as there is so many great eating places close by.

Easy walk to Federation Square, Southbank & the Crown complex.

Too good for words.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms with a view of the river.

My husband and I had a fantastic weekend. The hotel is close to everything and the staff were very helpful. Loved the ambience of the foyer and the bar where you can sit in large chairs and talk about your day. In the room it was a little bit noisy but the view was worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and you will be able to look over the Yarra River towards Southbank.

Have stayed a few times and love it. An historic building with so much character.The bar menu is great, from breakfast to the best tapas. A short walk to the shopping district, flinders street station and south bank. Totally recommend it.

Room Tip: All the rooms that we've stayed in have been good so I really can't give advice on this,

Great location, room and bathroom was a bit small but has been tastefully renovated. Magnificent foyer and stairway, beautifully designed and built in the 1900's. We had a voucher stay and the hot chocolate included in the deal was very nice, as was the bar and lounge areas with vey comfortable high back leather chairs.
