Reviewed December 11, 2012

The hotel has been completly renovated,built in the 1880's it was once a working mans pub,but is now owned by Michleton Wines.If you want to stay outside the CBD of Melbourne at a reasonable price $145 -$175 including breakfast which is exellent. The rooms vary in size but are very good. It is about ten minutes on the 96 tram from the CBD and about the same time to St Kilda beach .Get your self a MIkI tram card at the Travellers Aid at Southern Cross Station . The trams run every 10 minutes or so and go right up Bourke St , the main shopping area.in the CBD. Middle Park is an interesting suburb, once a working class area , now an expensive area with some wonderful Victorian houses . The hotel restaraunt is exellent with a good wine list. Middle park village has a dry cleaner, post office , news agent, a supermarket and a couple of restaraunts. My only complaint about the Hotel is that in the room I had a stronger light over the bathroom mirror would be nice.

We had the good fortune to have an overnight stay at the Middle Park Hotel this week. We received excellent service, a very comfortable modern suite with all mod cons and a delicious breakfast. We made a another Booking which we are looking forward to. Great place to stay .Middle Park is close to transport and the City.

Room Tip: south side was good yet to try more

Middle Park Hotel has been around for many years and undergone many transformations.
Now positions itself as an upmarket "trendie" type place and draws a trendie patronage.
Accommodation is adequate albeit pretty small. What was a reasonable sized room has been truncated by installation of an ensuite, itself trendie, having a full length glass panel between the bedroom and shower!
There are no lifts and because of the high ceilings it is a long climb up to the second floor. Rooms are clean and well equipped. Don't use the in room drinks bar unless you have an unlimited expense account (half bottle of red $64.00)
Restaurant boasts quircky type meals that are OK but not marvellous. Bar food is very expensive and very ordinary. Example: minute steak (read small1) $20 plus $6 for fries.
Irish stew $15 was close to inedible.
I think there are much better places around

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor and save the climb!

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!

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.
