“Good base for business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

Stayed for a few nights while doing meetings in and around Melbourne. I utilised the free parking so I could travel by car out of the city, and caught the tram, which stops immediately outside the hotel, to get to the CBD. Staff were very helpful, room was very clean, but a bit small. Very close to the botanic gardens for morning/evenings walking/running.

Thank you for your positive comments.
We are pleased you took advantage of our unique location and that it suited your purposes well.
It sounds like you were booked into one of our standard rooms which are cosier so if you do like to spread out a superior room might be the one to go for next time- hope to welcome you back, Happy Travels in the meantime!

Only stayed 1 night. Huge old guest house close to gardens, bit far from cbd for some but tram right past door. Easy reception welcome and check in. Room very big, furniture inconsistent in type, some modern fittings then an old coffee cup stained sideboard. Comfortable bed and pillows. Ensuite down some stairs and bath not easy to get in so wouldnt recommend this room for older guests. Continental breakfast nice with cereals, muesli, fruit, yoghurt and pastries, toast and real coffee too. Parking difficult so ring and ask hotel what spots they have free.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Yes it is true we are not within the cbd but in a residential area close to the botanic gardens. We are housed in an old building by Australian standards and some of the rooms are laid out in an unusual fashion as we have tried to keep as many old features as possible. Thank you again and Happy Travels!

We stayed for three nights to see the Aust Open for our 30th wedding anniversary and we were able to walk to Melbourne Park, access the free on site parking (only 3 spots so. Get in early) and have lovely breakfasts on verandah in morning and drinks on roof in evening. Friendly, relaxed informative, considerate staff. They very kindly threw in some champers when they learned it was a special occasion for us. Highly recommended!

Great breakfast - fresh fruit, cereals, pastries, breads, juice and a proper coffee! This is included in the rate. Our room was spacious and well appointed. The only downsides are a distinct lack of parking (only 3 spaces available), although we did manage to find a space down the street. There was an issue with the toilet (it took 10 flushes to remove everything...), which I did advise staff upon leaving - the staff were very friendly. Would I stay here again - Yes, absolutely.

Room Tip: Might be quieter on the top floor (quieter only from the perspective of guests coming home after you...

So pleased you took the time to review us and took advantage of our unique location and enjoyed our complimentary continental buffet breakfast. We understand parking is an issue as we only have 4 complimentary spaces and 2 permits available for on street parking and generally this is enough to service our 18 accommodation rooms. There is also overnight parking from 6pm - 9am available on the Hotel side of the street. Unfortunately due to our location in a residential area we are unable to change this. You will be glad to hear the toilet was promptly fixed for the arrival of the next guest, thank you for making us aware of it at the time.
Thanks again and happy travels!

I had the most incredible stay with my partner at The Hatton Hotel. It was so gorgeous and cosy. The morning breakfast was all we needed drinking T2 Tea and granola/fruit. The location was so perfect! The tram stop is right out front and a 100m walk down the road are beautiful cafes a 7-11 and the most amazing sushi bar. I honestly can't rave enough about The Hatton Hotel and we can not wait to stay here again.
PERFECTION.

The Hatton is conveniently located, with short walk to botanic gardens, fine selection of restaurants, brief cab ride to CBD, and tram stop nearby. The building itself is charming, and the décor is a surprise - eclectic modern art, and clean walls inside a traditional Victorian building. The rooms are simple and functional, with taste. We stayed in room 11, so not sure how this compares with other rooms, but can highly recommend this choice. The bath is beautifully oversized, the bed comfortable. selection of teas in the room good. The best part of this room was the opening window... located above a sprawling green mass of climbing ivy and at the rear side of the hotel, so it was quiet and peaceful, and provided a lovely calm green view. Although the room is somewhat Spartan in décor, it was very clean, as was the rest of the hotel; with one exception, the windows! Free wi fi is available. Down side, no hot meals or room service, though small snack / antipasto type foods available at the front desk during business hours. Breakfast is continental, so again no cooked eggs, but the bread selection was good, and there was some cheese. There are good cafes nearby to cater for any other food preferences. Overall, a lovely calm place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 11 offers tranquillity and an opening window.
