I chose to stay at the Richmond Hill Hotel when I visited Melbourne in August 2012 as it was very close to where my son lived. I looked at the photos and read the reviews on Trip Advisor and was very impressed when I got out of the taxi on arrival. I checked in and was lead through a labyrinth to my room at the back of the hotel. It reminded me of Prisoner!! I was devastated. The bed almost filled the entire room, there was no wardrobe, only a hanging rack and the window was difficult to open. The bathroom was reasonable but again, not to my standard. I also worried about being trapped in the bowels of the hotel if there was a fire! I spent a sleepless night waiting for dawn so I could relocate which I did after a meagre and noisy breakfast. I would rate this hotel as a backpackers only and there were quite a few backpackers staying there at the time. The outside of the building is lovely but is let down by the dinginess of the rooms within.
