The food is delicious and I wanted to try everything. Look at the pictures and see what I have ordered - doesn't it look nice? :). Great place for families, couples, friends - just order the place and enjoy it!

We had a family dinner here on Saturday night. Delicious food at a good price and fantastic service. We all had the cod special it was cooked to perfection. Great pub atmosphere downstairs and lovely restaurant upstairs. We will return another evening.

We book a room for our friends who came to visit us, and both us and most importantly they loved this hotel Great rooms with really comfortable beds and pillows, and spotlessly clean throughout. We ate as we have done before and the food was exceptional. Staff were all very good and efficient.

We needed an overnight stop en route south so booked this based upon good reviews on Trip advisor - I should have looked more closely as there is mention of the noise - its a very busy pub and has dining downstairs in the bar as well as an upstairs restaurant - which is excellent with great food and good...

We were in Melbourne for a concert at the nearby Assembly Rooms and had a one night stay at Harpur's. When I saw that it was above a pub I feared that it may be noisy- as it turned out this was not a problem at all. Our room faced onto the main street and was a good size, though... More

This is a pub in the center of Melbourne. The rooms are on top. So some noise could snick in, or don't sleep on top of a pub. Non smoking rooms. I had to pay in advance in the pub, as there is no reception in pubs. Internet ok. Breakfast is served in the pub on demand, book the night... More

I arrived at this hotel late on a Saturday evening after a long drive. The staff (especially Tom) were exceptionally helpful. I had forgotten to book a table for dinner, and even that was no trouble (on a fully booked Saturday night). The rooms were newly decorated so very clean and modern. On the Sunday I enjoyed an amazing Sunday... More

Stayed here on a buisness trip. Rooms were fantastic and staff were very helpful (especially James). Ate in the restaurant in the evening, magnificent food, probably one of the best meals I've ever eaten, will be returning with the wife.

Our two night break was a last minute thing so we didn't really know what to expect. First impressions were not too good as we had to park in a pay and display car park next door, but this was sorted later. We were greeted with a smile and quickly shown to our room which was small but more than... More
