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.

The Larwill is an excellent escape from the hustle and bustle of the hospital. It is quiet and comfortable. The microwave is very handy as is the crockery and cutlery. The beds are comfortable but my main complaint about the room is that proper doona covers aren't used. They just use sheets over a doona which inevitably come off and then you are sleeping with a doona that hasn't been washed. So unhygienic, especially for immune compromised people like my child and it just gives me the ick. I also would prefer individual body wash, shampoo and conditioner for hygiene reasons. The towels were quiet thin and seemed exactly the same as the towels we are given in hospital. So that's disappointing. The room was quite clean but could do with a deep clean as there are lots of marks on the wall and the carpet needs steam cleaning. I would definitely stay again due to the proximity of the hospital but I think there are better choices for sightseers.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel, we're glad your stay with us was convenient and well-located for your needs. I'm so sorry about the less-than-ideal state of your room. I have raised these issues with our maintenance and Housekeeping Department heads so they can work together to tackle any wear and tear in the rooms. Please call ahead if you do need to stay again as our housekeeping team can organise donna covers to be used in your room. Unfortunately, not all of our rooms have them, but we are more than happy to arrange this for you with a little heads up. I hope your next stay with us is better than your last and under much better circumstances. Kind Regards, The Larwill Team

Lovely hotel. Good size room, fairly convenient location right next to a tram stop. Unfortunately outside the free tram zone so had to get a public transport pass. Parking less than $30/night which was half what I paid elsewhere. Will look to stay here again next time I’m in Melbourne

We were concerned as it was difficult to drive to and attached to the hospital, but this is now on the rebook list. 5 min tram ride to the Zoo and 10 min Tram ride to the CBD. Next door to an amazing playground a d the room was spacious with extremely comfy beds. Staff were so polite. This one's a winner.

the bedding is fabulous the view great and the peacefulness resonates. However the attached restaurant/bar needs more staff and better opening hours. It's pointless to promote and restaurant which is only open for breakfast and not all days of the week! I mean this is Summer time in Australia - surely you could plan better.

Larwill were super helpful and accommodating when we booked in late in the day due to problems at original hotel. The rooms are beautiful and staff are friendly. The daily service was thorough and the on- site restaurant had great food and lovely staff.

Very good location and the staff are very helpful. The public transport right in front of the hotel and it only took around 10-15 minutes to the city. Few restaurants/fast food/cafe down stairs. Good stay.

Good location. Spacious room. Just be careful when using the bathtub. Nice outdoors. Next to a park and nearby the zoo. However, zoo entrance is expensive. Be prepared to spend a whole day there. BYO food allowed. 5 minutes tram ride to Victoria Market.
