Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked a Deluxe King, room was large, clean with a seperate bathroom and kitchenette, 65 TV, wi fi, an extremely comfortable bed and surprisingly quiet given that hotel is on the intersection of Clarendon and Yorks Sts Location wise it it close to the south melbourne markets and numerous hotels/cafe/restaurants, the tram stop was across the road and the number 12 took you into the city Qoi, the manager was customer service personified, from arranging to store our luggage on arrival and then placing them into the room, to notifying us when the room was ready to responding to any queries and on departure we met him near the entrance and he assisted by placed our bags in the Uber Will definitely return on our next visit to Melbourne

Great little Hotel located in fantastic spot 5 minutes from the Market and a Tram Stop outside your front Door. We got a welcome as soon as we turned up to drop off our Cases early in the Morning before setting off on a Train Trip. Very cosy Room and the comfiest of Beds and surprisingly it was very quiet. The owners are very friendly and also very helpful with any queries you have. Will definitely stay here again on our next Trip to Victoria as the location is close for everything and there are quite a few Pubs, Eateries, Coffee Shops to keep you satisfied within a short walk.

I booked this hotel on line because I wanted something close to the Arts Center and the South Melbourne Market. The welcome we received was warm and genuine. Parking was fairly easy, and the room was perfectly clean, bright and comfortable. Close to public transport, and surrounded by wonderful restaurants (particularly the one downstairs), this was the perfect location It will be our first choice on every other visit we make to Melbourne.

I am so old that I can remember when this was called The Skinny Fox, so fast forward from the late 80's - Early 90's and I find myself @ 'The Sky Bar' at the renovated Clarendon Hotel for an engagement party. In short we had a ball, lovely staff, great food and plenty of drinks with a wide variety to boot, the owners have spent a motza on this place, & in a first for me @ least, a lift in a pub !!!! I must go out more often ;), what next ??? The interior downstairs @ the street level is exposed brick with distressed wood tables & what looks like a very extensive menu, I should also add that even on a winters night the sky bar was very warm & cosy, in Summer with the roof open and a balmy night, this would be a great place to have a few (or more) beers ;).

The Clarendon Hotel is a short walk down Clarendon Road from the casino, and located centrally in South Melbourne. The hotel includes an outstanding bar and restaurant, and a rooftop bar with views of Melbourne's city skyline. The Clarendon's accommodation is superb, with 6 rooms per floor, with several being at least the size of a small apartment. High ceilings and thick walls provide you a sense of space and quiet, with a range of quality amenities including a lounge area, separate bathroom, free WiFi and a smart TV. Access to the accommodation is either through the downstairs where a reception area is located, or separate rear access off York St. My business visits to Melbourne over the last few years have been characterised by the staff at The Clarendon treating their guests like family. I highly recommend The Clarendon to all considering a change from the corporate hotel chains. Grab a seat out the front, a cold beer and just relax as The Clarendon team work their magic to make your time there a memorable one. 5 stars!

The room was clean and comfortable with convenient access to public transport, shops, south melbourne market, and many local eateries. The skybar upstairs have a great view overlooking the city. Not to mention the friendly staffs with amazing service, and great selections of asian food. Definitely a good choice to stay in south melbourne!

Stayed 2 nights here for my business trip. All staffs were friendly and i ordered the room service with Pork Belly and Satai Chicken skewers for my dinner and the food was very big portion and tasted good too. The room was tidy and comfortable. I could see the good views of south melbourne in the floor I stayed in. I would recommend this place for a good rest and food as well, definitely coming back to stay if i have another trip in Melbourne.
