Albert Park Manor Boutique Hotel
Ranked #149 of 160 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed April 26, 2008

The hotel is fairly small and very nice.

A fair distance from the city centre and airport but easy access to both. Tram and bus routes are just outside and give very good access to both the city and St Kilda beach.

The owners were the most helpful and friendly people you could hope to meet.

If I'm ever in Melbourne again this is where I will stay.

For $125 AUD we got a quiet, clean room on the tram lines running to the main part of town, and also the funky neighborhood of St. Kilda. Tony was most helpful as was his son Jamie.

A quirky Hotel that is very good value for money. The Hotel is within walking distance of the centre of Melbourne, although there is a tram stop outside. The room was very large and clean, with a spotless onsuite. The only problem we had was the bed was too hard for us, but the ever helpful and friendly owner swapped the mattress straight away. Would stay here again.

Starting with the good points, the hotel location is reasonable, air conditioned, friendly and helpful staff, relatively cheap and the entrance is nice.

Our room however was very grubby. Curtains and drapes over the bed needed a good wash. The last guests half eaten meal was left in the fridge. The room did not reflect the website photos, it was really quite shabby in comparison.

My advice is that if you find a dirty room acceptable then go for it, I wouldnt stay here again.

An interesting hotel near to the city without being in the city centre. Victorian building though there isn’t a bar or dining room so light on guest facilities. Very clean room and owners were very helpful withinfo on Melbourne.

Our stay at the Albert Park Manor Boutique Hotel June 21-25 was a pleasant one. The hotel was appealing to us because it offers good access on a main tram line (5-10 minutes) to the Melbourne cbd as well as quick access to a nearly freeway for excusions outside of town. In many respects it is more akin to an upscale B&B than a true hotel, since it has no dining facilities or elevator and appears to be owned and managed by one person, "Tony ." There is a small Italian restaurant and a cafe serving breakfast and lunch next door so meals are no problem.

When we arrived, the hotel was almost full so we had to take a room on the top floor which was ok except that the windows are smaller than those on the lower floors which made the room rather dark. Tony was very helpful, carrying our bags up to our second floor room himself and providing helpful guidance to all of our questions concerning Melbourne attractions.We found our room and the entire hotel to be clean, comfortable and a good value for the money.
If you arrive by car we recommend phoning ahead for detailed directions. The traffic patterns in the area are confusing and we drove around in the neighborhood for almost 30 minutes before figuring out how to get to the hotel.
We enjoyed the Albert Park Manor would be glad to stay there again.

I needed a twin room for 2 nights and the room fitted the bill.
It was a convenient location for getting to the CBD and going to St Kilda for breakfast.
The room was not as lavish as I expect having looked at the website.
The furniture seemed to be gathered up from all different eras nothing really matched, except the colours of the curtains and the bed spreads.
The bathroom was very small and the wall near the shower had rotted away but had just been painted down to the rot.
The room was serviced each day and the owners were pleasant although we didn't see them apart from checkin and checkout.
I would look around again when visiting Melbourne.
The best so far has been some short stay appartments near Southbank.
