“nicely located good hotel”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

This hotel is quite nice and located across the street from beautiful Albert Park and just a short walk to the beach in the opposite direction. I found the staff to be pleasant and welcoming. They even have a basket of beach towels at the front entrance door for guests use if going to the beach! There are no elevators but, I found the wide staircase to be easy enough. The rooms are clean and nice with comfortable bed, a nice flat screen t.v. and a comfortable bathroom. The air conditioner is a wall unit with remote control. Worked quite nicely, especially since there was a heat wave the week during my visit there, it was so nice to return to comfort of a.c. I would recommend this place as the area is lovely with cute shops and cafes along both sides of the street and a restaurant and bar on the property.

Hi NanaJ12,
Middle Park Hotel is very lucky to be positioned in such a beautiful area with the village-like atmosphere, beach and Albert Park all just a stone throw away; I'm glad you made the most of it. Definitely different from the fast paced life of the city, yet only 10 minutes by tram away. Thank you also for your kind comments regarding our staff, they do their best to make each persons stay as memorable as possible.

We look forward to seeing you next time you are in Melbourne NanaJ12!

We asked for a quite room and maybe got the most quite room. The room was clean and had everything you need for a city stay. Breakfast very nice and service most friendly.
If you like to experience the city and beaches this is the one. Only a short walk to tram and a very good BYO japanese restaurant. The bar is a great place to settle after a long day for a wine or beer. The only down was that our room had no window with a view. A little more light in the bathroom would have been good.

100% recommended and they do have bigger room we will ask for next time.

Hello NewChallenger and thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. Even though we are above a bar and restaurant we have taken the utmost care to ensure rooms are quiet and your stay can be as comfortable as possible. There is nothing better than being able to enjoy a quiet beer or glass of wine at the end of the day and then being able to retire to a peaceful nights sleep.
I have taken note of the bathroom lighting, sometimes the mood lighting has been known to be a touch on the darker side.

We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Melbourne.

Thanks again

Classic pub accommodation with all the amenities of a modern hotel. We had a beautifully refurbished double room (queen bed) which had just enough room for two cots for the kids. Large ensuite and a decent sized shower. A well lit room with high ceilings. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too difficult to organise - from the extra cot we needed to room service. Free WiFi that actually worked and had good coverage all over the hotel. The room was quiet and you could just barely hear noise from the pub downstairs.
The included breakfast was outstanding - even the coffee was good (sometimes hotel coffee can be a little ordinary - not here). The bar staff were as friendly and helpful as the hotel staff. The meals in the bar were pretty good. A nice selection of beers on tap too. Our party (multiple families) had a number of kids and they adequately catered for as well.
The hotel is conveniently across the road from the Middle Park tram stop on the main city - St Kilda line (no. 96). Trams are every 10 minutes or so - journey time is about 10 minutes to the city and less than 5 to St Kilda.
With the included breakfast the hotel is great value for money. We'd definitely stay here again.

The bar was loud and full of Friday evening revellers enjoying a drink or three after a tough working week. We checked in and made our way up the stairs with luggage in hand (no lifts). We opened the door to the room and prayed there was more to this room...there wasn't!
A beautiful old style hotel with a renovated/modern feel. Staff were very professional and welcoming which made the stairs and tiny room somewhat irrelevant. Free wifi and breakfast were included!
When steping out you are met with a Tram stop which takes you to prime locations. If you feel like a leisurely stroll, turn the other way and head to the beach/bay. Great for those romantics walks with coffee in hand and soaking in the rays.
A very pleasant stay and a must if you want to be away from the city and just relax.

We have just recently stayed at the Middle Park Hotel in Middle Park ,Melbourne. Our time spent there, was over Christmas. Christmas lunch was great, food delicious and a good range of choices. Service, excellent.
Our stay for the week was very comfortable, quiet 2nd floor and the staff were great. Breakfast each day was a good starter for the day.
The hotel, has the tram stop directly across the road and the main street has a great choice of shops.
Matt, was very helpful via internet, at booking and on arrival, as were the rest of the staff there.
on a whole thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and will be back as the closeness to the city and comfort of the place, is ideal for us. thank you all. M&M

Room Tip: 2nd floor queen deluxe the best. Huge bath, quiet room.

Needed a one-night stay close to the ferry. Only disappointment was not staying longer and being able to sample the hotel's pub and restaurant and nearby shops and cafes. Very neat and excellent value for money. No movies-on-demand, but the TV did have Freeview as well as Foxtel. Would easily stay here again.

Stayed here for 5 nights over the Xmas/New Year period. Could not fault this place... $1000 for 5 nights, including breakfast.

Despite staying in a small room we found it very comfortable with a spacious bathroom, and large TV mounted in front of the bed. The room was nice and modern, but with subtle retro touches that made it enjoyable and quirky. Breakfasts were excellent with plenty of classics and we found room service to be of exceptional value (2 mains and 2 salads for $50!)

We have found our new base for trips to Melbourne. Only 30m from a tram stop that goes straight into the CBD, situated on a nice cafe strip and only a 10 minute walk from St Kilda beach.

Great stay.

Room Tip: No gym but close to Port Phillip bay recreational facilities

Hi Matt S,
We are thrilled to receive such a kind review. The rooms do vary in size however the TV’s mounted on the wall in front of the beds are such a bonus, I am glad you appreciated the quirky touches and the restaurant food. Nothing beats those hearty breakfasts in the morning! Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you again soon!
