The Laird Hotel
Reviewed May 3, 2011

Good value hotel - $130pn for ensuite room. Beds are very very comfy and the place is spotless. Friendly staff and hosts and continental breakfast included. Free wifi which is great as so many of the more expensive hotels charge a fortune for it. Close to transport into the city and to other gay establishments

Very little noise from downstairs when the pub is open - it is a men only pub (it has an exemption from the anti discrimination act)

I always try to stay here when in Melbourne as it really feels like home. It has that nice relaxed vibe about it and I love the brand of coffee they use for the espresso machine - help yourself anytime.

I have stayed at the Laird Hotel numerous times.. never had an issue or problems. While being a hotel, it is clean and the hosts couldn't be more friendly. 3 Rooms have ensuits, 3 have shared bathrooms. Reasonably central and close to train station to head into Melbourne CBD (a few stops).
