This hotel has so much history and you are reminded as you walk through all the corridors. It seems Robert Menzies had an office here when he worked for Vic Railways, very early on in his career . The restaurant also takes you back in time. very handy to Southern Cross station.

Interesting self contained apartments in the old Railway Offices. Boutique style dining area served a pleasant breakfast. Moderate tariff, and very well located for riverside attractions, and public transport for touring tourist attractions by tram.

I stayed 3 nights, and part of the tariff included breakfasts -... More

Very interesting design, the room was composed of 3 levels – kitchen, living room and the upper level bad and bath room. Breakfast is served by order – very nice and refreshing vs the standard buffet Could be a nice option for staying near the CBD.
