My husband and I stayed at The Olsen for our first wedding anniversary recently. After a minor mix up in rates quoted via email the manager gave us a free upgrade so instead of being in the spa studio room we were in the sap deluxe room the main difference being extra space. On arrival the guy on reception was very friendly and welcoming and when we arrived in our room we found an anniversary card from the staff along with a complimentary cheese board and champagne on ice! This was such a nice personal touch and really gave us a great impression of the hotel. The room was amazing roaring fire, comfiest beds, kitchen with microwave and coffee making machine. There is also a large fridge with freezer box and is fully stocked the best range I've seen in a not so mini bar. A dining table and chairs and magazines to read along with lots of art books. The best part by far was the large outdoor balcony with massive hot tub. It was absolutely amazing relaxing in the tub at night with bubbly. The mini bar I also thought was reasonably priced compared with bars in Melbourne. Room service was also good. We had such a great time we actually rang reception and asked was the room free the following day and booked another night! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone. We had looked at all the top hotels in Melbourne and chose this as it has way more character than the boring dated bigger chain hotels. Thank you all at the The Olsen we had an amazing first anniversary.
