Made a late booking for an overnight stay through Hotel Club. Had found the hotel through having breakfast at the French cafe below over the previous weekend and it looked interesting enough to stay in my head for the next trip up to Melbourne. Didn't relaise it would be in such a short space of time but I am very happy we did. The hotel is interesting and charming right down to the internals of the elevator with colourful prints of artwork on display. The reception staff upon arrival were extremely welcoming and efficient and were more than willing to offer me a change of floors when I mentioned my aversion to elevators. Great value for the room quality and we had the added bonus of a full terrace as well as the balcony - if only the weather was up for it! Dinner at Classico downstairs was top notch with friendly and efficient staff in a relaxed yet lively atmosphere. An extra bonus was not having to go hunting for a restruant still open and happy to serve at a late hour. Being able to get a take away cuppacino and warm pastry from the lovely FLEUR Depot de Pain french patisserie downstairs the following morning and sit up in bed enjoying it with the winter sun streaming in through the shades was the icing on the cake! Will definitely be visiting again! Easy drive from this location down to the Great Ocean rd as you are just aroudn the corner from the Princess Hwy and West Gate Bridge.
