Lovely historical hotel in a quiet part of Melbourne. The inclusion of a pianist and harpist added a delightful touch to the ambience of the foyer, as did the gorgeous floral arrangements. Close to several restaurants and cafes, and within walking distance to major sporting venues for tennis and the MCG. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were not...

Stayed here on our wedding night and wanted to visit before the major renovation. Very pleased with the service, room cleaning and valet parking. We had breakfast on only one occasion as we wanted to experience a range of food experiences while we were in Melbourne - the service and presentation were excellent.

We loved our short stay there and were impressed with extra little touches such as the solo harpist in the foyer. Attention to detail was excellent. When we couldn't get the air conditioning working in our room it was attended to very quickly. Unlike many hotels the room was as good (or better) as it appeared on line so there...

Our stay here was simply fantastic. Staff, the room, service, food, attention to detail - was all fantastic. First time we stayed here and will definitely return. I already am a big fan of the afternoon tea and have always enjoyed the Cricketers Bar and it's all in a great location.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
