“Perfect start to our honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Hatton upon arriving in Melbourne for a week long honeymoon. It was just perfect. From the very friendly, hands on staff to the beautiful complimentary toiletries and quirky decor, this place has it all. The staff really make this boutique hotel really a home away from home.

Easy peasy to get into the city and great cafes and restaurants nearby.

Thank you team for making our holiday unforgettable!

This was my first trip to Melbourne and I felt blessed that I chose The Hatton based upon Tripadvisor reviews. The service was superb. The staff was consistently friendly, warm, and welcoming, going out of their way to be helpful. The small lounge was a comfortable place to relax, have a beer or glass of wine, snacks, and meet other guests.

I was in room 14 on the ground floor in the back of the building and up a few steps. The large light-filled room had a table and two chairs next to a large window with a view of the city, a built-in kitchenette, a flat screen tv, and an immaculate bathroom with a large white porcelain tub and shower. I would take the same room, but would suggest that seniors or the disabled seek a room with a bathroom on the same level. The bathroom is down a wooden stairway about four steps. In dim light it might be difficult to judge the slight step down from the room to the landing since both are the same color. I got used to it, but it might be a challenge for others. That being said, I would take the same room again. The room was quiet, comfortable, and I slept soundly.

The location was terrific. A tram stops directly in front of the hotel and goes to the CBD in minutes, passing by many major sights. The Hatton is on Park St, midway between the glorious Royal Botanical Gardens, and another park. Both are a five minute walk. On one corner is a 7-11 where you can buy your "Mika" (tram) card. Adjacent to the corner is a dry cleaners and many excellent small restaurants.

I was very pleased with The Hatton and would recommend it highly to others. It will be my first choice when I return to Melbourne. Kudos to the great staff!

This beautiful boutique hotel ticked every box for a wonderful Melbourne experience. The staff were welcoming and very knowledgable and helpful. The room was simple and stylish and very quiet and relaxing. The location is perfect with a tram right outside, although we chose to walk everywhere and loved every experience. The cosy and intimate private bar was just the icing on the cake. Thankyou for a truly wonderful Melbourne experience.

It is difficult in these days of globalisation to distinguish yourself as a business and we try very hard to provide guests with an experience that shows off Melbourne in its best light. We are very pleased that this was a successful and memorable trip for you and that Melbourne was a highlight of it, Happy Travels!

Hotel is at South Yarra, very close to city. Tram stop is in front of hotel, South Yarra train station is just 10 minutes walk. Room rate include simple, healthy breakfast with good brew coffee. Room is cozy, spacious with dining table and small courtyard. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Up to 5 years ago I stayed at the Hatton a lot. Then trips to Melbourne fell away, so it was with some anticipation I returned last week. It was a favourite of mine - small, friendly, homely. Nothing pretentious, but everything needed is supplied. Happily, nothing has changed in 5 years. Maybe some staff, and the linen, and the cups and saucers.....it was again a delight. Room, spacious, with a small external courtyard. Bathroom, with bath! Nice. Internet, free. Breakfast, healthy, free, newspapers supplied, fruit, friendly staff to make a coffee, nice little breakfast room with atmosphere.......there's a nifty wine list of boutique wines, lots of knowledge of the arty happenings in Melbourne, all good things. Literally around the corner are a couple of very nice brasseries, and the Melbourne tram is outside for a quick trip to the City. Oh, and the Botanical Gardens are next door. How good is that? And the rates are great. If you want predictable city hotels, you already know where to book. If you want comfort, value, fun, handy and feel good, book here. You will not be disappointed. I never have been.

Room Tip: Ask for the downstairs rooms with courtyard

great staff, large rooms, close to everything we needed. not so big that you feel like an ant, not so small you feel in the way. we stayed for the anzac long weekend to attend the dawn service and walked there from the hotel. the superior room had a small kitchenette service as well, which made it even more appealing for a few more days. definitely worth booking again for future trips.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us.
I trust the Dawn service was memorable.
Our size is unique with our 20 rooms for accommodation, we find this allows us to get to know our guests well enough to allow a personalised service without being intrusive, thank you again, perhaps we'll see you same time next year! Happy Travels!

I have stayed at the Hatton on numerous trips and won't stay anywhere else!
It's central location make it an attractive place to stay - walking distance to town, Toorak and of course my morning exercise on the Tan.
Great cafes nearby, terrific breakfast included and wonderful rooms.
Staff are always friendly and accommodating.
I can't recommend The Hatton highly enough - and thank goodness I found it years ago!
