Recent overnight stay. Hotel operates very efficiently. Rooms are a good size and the decor is refreshing different yet comfortable. Good quality bed along with all the usual amenities.No problems with a late check out. Only minor blemish was the quality of the breakfast in the cafe downstairs: not terrible yet could have been better.

This is my second time here but this time was a lot better. We had our conference here. The food was amazing, my gluten free catered for very well. They have also taken over the restaurant down stairs, so the now cater for breakfast as well. Great stay.

Very central to the great many fashion shops of the area. We stayed over a long weekend and we had a great time as the studio has everything you need within the room plus we had some gorgeous "Blackman" art to enjoy. Lately we have stayed at all the Art Series Hotels in Melbourne and we love how cool, modern... More

Rooms include self catering facilities including a dish washer. Everything you need if you don't want to eat out at breakfast or every evening. My room was of a high standard with great views towards the coast. On site bakery was excellent for breakfast and snacks up to late afternoon. The Italian restaurant also provided a great standard, all be... More

We needed to find a place away from ours for a night and ending up choosing here. It was a great night with a comfy setup, good view to the lake and quality room service breakfast. If anything maybe too much food for breakfast. Also a big fan of the chocolate freckles. Thanks

There is a lot to like about this Hotel. Right from the minute we walked in the door we were greeted with a warm welcoming smile and throughout our stay nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The rooms are very generous in size and the artwork and vibrant colours give these Art Deco appartments a real boutique feel.... More

We came to Victoria for a long weekend away and stayed at the Blackman. The staff were helpful and gave us a great restaurant tip for breakfast. It's close by and called Kettle Black. We had a studio room which came with a kitchenette, but we didn't use it. Everything was clean and we liked the T2 teas. We will... More

Im currently staying in house and while the rooms are spacious, the service is letting the Hotel down. Check in was average and lacked warmth. The bathrooms appear to be tiny and beds zipped together which results in a dip down the middle. Also no complimentary bottle of water. Lets see if it improves in the coming days! Thus far... More

We had a last min booking for a night out in the city, we were super excited to stay at this amazing hotel, but were bitterly disappointed with the customer service or lack there of. We had to call twice just to get a mini bar price list (which should have already been in the room). The same staff member... More
