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.

Very good value hotel in great neighbourhood. Easy access by tram to the city centre. The reception was friendly and the breakfast was very good. We would definitely stay here again. The Hatton may not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues.

We felt like country squires on arriving at the Hatton Hotel in the Domain a stone's throw from the Royal Botanic Gardens and Toorak Road. Our room was charming featuring vintage furniture and fittings, crisp white bedding and luxurious toiletries. I loved throwing open the wooden shutters and pushing out the windows for a stimulating view across the Melbourne skyline. The blend of contemporary and oriental art was a visual feast. Staff were attentive and relaxed. This a a place to park the car and enjoy walking as if this were your own neighborhood- at least for a while.

Wanted to let the TA community know that unfortunately this hotel is closing as of tomorrow - if you visit their site, hatton.com.au, you'll be directed to a hotel nearby. I feel very very sad as the Hatton was our home away from home in Melbourne and we loved everything about it. We'll miss the wonderful breakfasts on the balcony, evening drinks on the roof, and the spare elegance of the polished boards and simple old furniture. This place really worked, and I'm very sorry to see it go. Vale Hatton.

A beautiful historic hotel in South Yarra with a very convenient tram stop right at the door, providing easy access into central Melbourne. Friendly and helpful staff, and a very good continental breakfast. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom - only bad point was that the mini bar fridge was surprisingly loud at night. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely hotel in one of the nicest streets in South Yarra just off the Botanical Gardens - and with a tram stop just outside the door, so easy access into central Melbourne. Friendly and helpful staff, and a very good continental breakfast. The only small problem was no lift, so perhaps don't stay in one of the upper bedrooms if you have excess baggage as we did. Our room was fairly simple but spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom - windows opened which was a bonus. The hotel offered free wifi and an ipad downstairs in the reception/breakfast area. Just a short walk down the road are a good choice of restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay there again.

We were sent to room 6, a small room in the back basement section near the rubbish bins. Paint peeling from the bathroom ceiling, a mini refrigerator near the bed that was so noisy that it had to be unplugged at night so we could sleep. Getting in and out of the bathtub/shower was problematic - it is set very high! The water temp varied every time you showered from hot to cold and the bathroom was so small it was difficult to close the door without almost sitting on the toilet. Wi-Fi was free and available in the rooms, although it dropped out occasionally. The breakfast was served in the nice front lobby room and was more than satisfactory. As other reviewers have mentioned, at times when speaking to staff you felt like you were interrupting their conversations, texting or internet searching. It's a shame, as the building with its grand Italianate facade welcomes you with a wow factor that unfortunately stops there. Pity, its position and history could really make a positive mark. The hotel was worth about half of what we paid for the room.

Stayed for three nights to take in the sights of Melbourne and catch up its friends. The Hatton is a boutique hotel in a historic building in South Yarra just outside the Melbourne CBD. Great location with lovely parks at either end of the street, there is a tram stop outside and is only a few stops from the CBD - also stops at the Arts Precinct and Flinders Street Station. Also easy to get the tram to St Kilda and other parts of the city. If you have a car they do have 4 spaces at the back of the hotel - available on a first come basis so can be quite competitive and a problem if you don't get one and need to move your car from street paking every two hours. Our room was on the first level and towards the back. It had a small window looking out on to greenery and was quite well appointed with a sink, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities and plates, cutlery etc... The bathroom was compact and clean with all you really need without offering much in the way of special - water pressure was a bit low and the hot water fairly variable. Good linen, amenities and plenty of character, but the usual creaks and noises you often get with timber floors and historic buildings. The hotel has a small cafe/bar/breakfast room at the front of the hotel with a few table inside and on the front veranda - ok breakfast included in the room rate and really handy if you don't feel like heading out. There are restaurants, cafes and convenience stores within walking distance and the area is lovely. Would recommend to those who like historic boutique hotels close to but not right in the city centre - we would stay here again.

some consider boutique hotels to be very high end. Well, the Hatton is a boutique in that it has character , perfect location and friendly staff that remembered our names and what we drank for breakfast. Great to be outside of CBD, so that you get local restaurants, and walking around the neighborhood is a delight. Our room was large, bright, comfortable - nothing extraordinary but perfect. Windows that open- and you can make coffee and tea in the room The breakfast is more than ample - we were tired of having eggs every morning on the trip. From our perspective - it was simply perfect - not precious - but a delightful respite

What a great find! I booked three rooms (two for three nights and one a Saturday night stay only) and everyone in my group had the same to say. The rooms are spacious and airy with their enormous ceilings. Bed linen is crisp and comfortable. Lovely waffle robes to lounge in armchairs in our room or after a bath. My husband said he could occasionally pick up the sound of the tram out front but it did not disturb his sleep and he is a light sleeper normally. I found the rooms quiet and good for sleeping. The tiny facilities in the corner cupboard that included a microwave and kettle was brilliant. And you cant fault T2 teas either. Other notable points about the Hatton: - Breakfast is continental but lovely with really good quality cereals, fruit and three or four different breads for toast along with small pastries and real coffee (including soy - which delighted my lactose intolerant travel companion as he cant always get that). Its a sensible breakfast spread and you can eat as much of it as you like, so you wont be hungry. - Small but lovely selection of wines and beer which can be consumed in the charming front area including the balcony, - Take the stairs to the rooftop and sit admiring the Melbourne city views - and bring your drinks. There's a small fridge at the top of the stairs to keep it all cool while you are there. Perfect. And what is more, it caught a lovely breeze on our very hot first day. - The staff are the most helpful friendly and polite people (all ladies for our stay although I don't know if that is the case usually!) - The number 8 tram stops literally outside the door and goes all the way into the city or all the way out to Toorak so makes this a super super convenient place to stay because it is in a quiet, leafy lovely street yet is only minutes to lots of fab eating, shopping and business addresses. (You can get a Mikki travel card at the 7-eleven on the corner too) - The Botanical gardens (including the Tan run) are just at the end of the street too. That's a great place for a stroll, to sit and read or chill, or to take your run. Considerations: - Getting into the shower was a little awkward because its in a deep bath but the supplied stool and handrail made it alright and it is not enough of an issue not to stay here - The lack of drapes on the windows (wooden shutters) does mean a little more early light gets in than I would've liked but again, this is not enough to not book this hotel. You will get a good nights sleep! I will also add that we had a terrible mix up in the booking somehow and somewhere along the way that would have seen me spend almost half the total weekend again. Disaster! But the team at the Hatton were just fabulous and waived the extra on the proviso I got the booking agent to make some adjustments to charges to them - which I was very happy to do. I cant thank them enough for being so gracious and helpful. Finally, there is no doubt that this is now the Melbourne hotel of choice. There is absolutely no reason for it not to be. Don't be put off because you think its out of the city centre; that's the whole pleasure and the tram means you wont even notice when it counts.
