I loved it.. yes, sure I had to walk up 2 flights of stairs to get to room 208... but that's part of the difference. Rooms are small, clean and fun.. quality fittings, great shower etc. Included brekkie - Green eggs and ham was fab.. and the special juice! The team went "over and above" when it came to a slow taxi problem.. won;t say what exactly, but brilliant! Thankyou!

Room Tip: bear in mind it's a popular pub... so although no probs for me.. if you are staying fri/sat, &am...

We regularly stay at hotels across Australia and this was the WORST hotel we have ever stayed at. We stayed on a Saturday night and the noise from down stairs at the hotel was in-tollerable! The music and drunken laughter and screaming went until way after 2.30am! This combined with the fact that the beds are small and terribly uncomfortable, meant that we didn't get a winks sleep all night. When we mentioned the noise to the manager in the morning he was arrogant and rude and told us that they were a pub and what did we expect!....Well we expected a goods nights sleep actually and a manager who cared that his customers werent happy. I would NEVER recommend this hotel to ANYONE! DO NOT STAY THERE!

Stayed here one night before a flight to Cairns. Nice room and comfortable bed, good shower. Victorian building having undergone a recent revamp. Bar is very popularandlots of locals use it after work for a drink and a bar meal. Restaurant is very good with a good selection of well cooked meals. Breakfast was included, but after the meal tyhe night before we opted for a light toast and jam with tea. Good staff andvery helpful with all queries. Would not hesitate to use again.

The bedroom maximised space with a thoroughly contemporary and tasteful bespoke design, more importantly it felt light and airy and the bed was very comfortable, this came after 3 nights in a central Melbourne hotel which was larger but felt enclosed and airless. The artwork provoked dialogue, as did the quality of the bar selection and bathroom soaps, a pleasant change after the mediocracy of mainstream hotels. Located well for those who enjoy walking, with an easy walk to federation square, mostly via parks, and to St Kilda via a long beach, these features coupled with a tantalising locked x rated drawer, great menu and friendly bar staff made this hotel a good choice for a holiday in Melbourne.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review the Middle Park Hotel.

We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay here with us. As a boutique hotel, we strive to distance ourselves from our bigger counterparts, by paying attention to the little details, such as bathroom amenities, customer service and a delicious bar and restaurant menu.
Every room contains work by iconic photographer Rennie Ellis, which we feel adds to the ambiance we try to create for every guest that walks through the door and also adds to the little quirks that make guests come back again and again. We hope to have you return to the Middle Park Hotel on your next visit to Melbourne.

Warm regards,

James Sharrock
Hotel Manager

I chose to escape to the Middle Park Hotel for a night even though I live in Melbourne - it was a great decision! The Queen Room I stayed in was lovely- a great size and very comfortable. I had a lovely deep bath after dinner and a great shower the next morning. The beds are very comfortable and I had a great sleep. Free Wi-Fi in the rooms is also great. Breakfast in the morning was a treat. The staff are all lovely and so helpful- I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Melbourne- or for those like me that need a night of escape!

Spent one night here in a queen room on a Saturday night as we were in the area for a wedding. Great location with Middle Park shops, restaurants and a small supermarket in the same stretch, as well as being opposite Albert Park and only a five/ten minute walk to the beach. The bar downstairs looks great and was packed during our stay, with countless beers available on tap and a good menu (we didnt have time to try it out, but wish we had've).
Renovated to a high standard with rooms sized as you would expect for a pub - on the small side but has a small seating area and still more than enough room for our port a cot and bags. The only weird issue was the powerpoints were in strange spots, making it difficult to boil the kettle and use the iron. Our included breakfast for 2 was excellent, making the $185 we paid for the stay more than reasonable. Friendly and attentive staff made the overall experience great. Thanks!

Stayed in room 208. Despite double glazing, constant traffic and pedestrian noise kept me awake for hours. Size of the room was small and there was no desk. The shower door could only open inwards (when opened out, it would hit the toilet !). Although it is modernised and the staff are friendly, it is essentially pub accommodation and definitely not a place for a quiet stay.
