This was my second stay at the Hilton South Wharf Melbourne and so I was really looking forward to it as my first stay 18 months ago was excellent. I wasn't disappointed as the King Guestroom was on the city side of the hotel with beautiful views down the Yarra River towards SouthGate. The room was spotless with a well stocked mini bar, bath and large shower. It's a very plain room, but nice and clean and uncluttered. I remembered from my last trip that I had an awesome nights sleep thanks to the electronic black-out blinds in the room, but unfortunately this time our blinds were broken and stopped about 1 metre from the floor so I was awake at 6am sun-rise! I mentioned this at check-out and so hopefully it's been fixed for the next guests in room 622.
I had the bed and breakfast package and was thrilled with the buffet-breakfast. It had everything you could want and more, and I always like the inclusion of freshly made coffee to order.
The major difference to my stay this time was how much better South Wharf has become. There are so much more really cool bars and restaurants than 18 months ago and the area had a really good vibe and lots of people out and about. Once again I had a really nice stay at Hilton South Wharf.
