Our stay at the Albert Park Manor Boutique Hotel June 21-25 was a pleasant one. The hotel was appealing to us because it offers good access on a main tram line (5-10 minutes) to the Melbourne cbd as well as quick access to a nearly freeway for excusions outside of town. In many respects it is more akin to an upscale B&B than a true hotel, since it has no dining facilities or elevator and appears to be owned and managed by one person, "Tony ." There is a small Italian restaurant and a cafe serving breakfast and lunch next door so meals are no problem.
When we arrived, the hotel was almost full so we had to take a room on the top floor which was ok except that the windows are smaller than those on the lower floors which made the room rather dark. Tony was very helpful, carrying our bags up to our second floor room himself and providing helpful guidance to all of our questions concerning Melbourne attractions.We found our room and the entire hotel to be clean, comfortable and a good value for the money.
If you arrive by car we recommend phoning ahead for detailed directions. The traffic patterns in the area are confusing and we drove around in the neighborhood for almost 30 minutes before figuring out how to get to the hotel.
We enjoyed the Albert Park Manor would be glad to stay there again.
