I bought an 'Our Deal' Voucher for $100 which entitled me to an overnight stay in a superior (bottom of the range) room so for that kind of money it was definitely good value. I think even if I had paid full price it probably would still be pretty good value. Our room was small, but newly and tastefully decorated with a comfortable queen size bed. The bathroom layout was badly designed and did not maximise the small space. The view out our window was of the alley below but I didn't care. In the morning the sun was streaming in. The Our Deal Voucher spin advertised it as a 'luxurious' overnight stay - no, not luxurious but certainly comfortable.
The building itself is definitive Olde Worlde which I found quite charming. We didn't eat or drink in the hotel so cannot comment but it is an easy walk to a plethora of restaurants and bars. Flinders Street Station is just a couple of minutes walk away - in fact easy access to most of Melbourne's main attractions. The reception staff were pleasant and professional and checking in and out was quick and easy.
One thing about this hotel that struck me as soooo refreshing is the mini bar. Instead of charging ridiculously over the top prices for a beer, a water or a packet of nuts they sensibly charge UNDER the normal price! We were amazed and thought there must be some mistake on the price list - but no! There is a little cardboard note about how they are charging less than shop prices - so of course we used the mini bar instead of going out for a water and a beer. Hooray! Someone finally gets it!! Other hotel chains take note!!!!!!
Overall an enjoyable experience and excellent value.
