Very comfy room in a convenient location in a gorgeous street of shops and cafes. The bed was comfy, the shower great and the staff were friendly...HOWEVER...upon returning to our room each evening we were greeted by an unidentifiable bacon-like smell (probably from the kitchen downstairs) which had seeped in through the unsealed louver windows in the bedroom and bathroom.

If this doesn't sound like your cup of tea (it wasn't ours) you should avoid Room 203...perhaps the hotel's management will consider putting in sealed glass windows to rectify this.

Hi LordLadyButtongrass,

Thank you for taking the time you review our hotel, it is definitely one of the more interesting headlines we have come across! After you checked out I did a little bit of investigating as room 203 is by far our most popular room (being the biggest) and I had yet to have that problem occur. One of the windows above the bed had been left open just a touch which may have been enough to let in some of the bacon smell (a great smell to wake up to, but maybe not to sleep to!). I have ensured all staff are across having those windows firmly closed to prevent any more of the kitchen aromas wafting through.
Thanks again for your feedback and good luck in your future travels!

Older hotel with beautifull modern furnished rooms and tasty breakfast included. Our room was on the small size, but bigger rooms available on request. Great location near cafes and two blocks from the beach. Rooms have double glazed windows and very modern bathroom with raindrop shower head (very relaxing). Staff very helpful and caring. Free parking available in local area. Prices very reasonable .Owners have provided small extras in rooms, which always adds value to the whole package

Room Tip: ask for a bigger queen room on booking

My wife and I recently stayed at MPH for the F1. You really couldn't pick a better location! Downstairs, through the bar and across the road and you are in Albert park. The food was great (sportsmans breakfast is massive) the service was great (Matt really does work hard).

The area around the hotel is very nice and you can quickly get downtown on the tram.

The room was a little small, but we really didn't mind and wouldn't hesitate to book again if we come back to the F1

Hi L H!
You are exactly right, its impossible to get any closer than directly outside Gate 1 for the Grand Prix. Im sure your stay was made even more enjoayble by this fact and also the great atmosphere that was present throughout the week. When you are waking up to a lovely freshly prepared breakfast each morning that is a little bonus.
Thanks again for taking the time to review us and we look forward to seeing you in Melbourne for the next GP!

This is a very good value hotel. Its very easy to get a tram out the front to the city or St Kilda. It's a good location not too far from anything. It's also situated in a cute village with a few shops and restaurants. A cosy looking Spanish place is just over the road which we didn't get to try. The pub has a traditional English feel and is good for drink and/or meal. It's not seedy at all, like some pub accommodation, and doesn't cause much noise in the room. The bed was quite a hard bed so if you enjoy a soft plush bed you may be disappointed. The room is small but it is all you need and represents good value for money. The bathroom was nice and modern.

Hi Clsyme,

Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. Im glad you were able to soak in the little village feel of Middle Park, hopefully next time you will get a chance to try Santiago Tapas (the little Spanish restaurant)! You are right, some rooms are on the small side although we do our best to make them as comfortable and homely as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Middle Park Hotel one day soon!

Really enjoyed our stay at Middle Park Hotel, the room was very tidy if a little cosy, the decor was very cool and the staff were helpful and friendly. Price was very reasonable and was impressed with the breakfast on order rather than buffet! Would highly recommend and we will be staying again.

Hi JakeyB90,
Excellent news to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and even better that you left with your stomach having been satisfied with a freshly cooked and prepared breakfast! Some rooms can be a little on the cosy side however we do have very high expectations when it comes to providing clean rooms and welcoming service. Thank you for your recommendation and we look forward to seeing you in the future!

We loved staying here. A great boutique hotel in Melbourne. Old style pub with a modern touch. The rooms were modern and I loved the deep bath. Great bed, quality linen & shampoo etc.

On arrival we really enjoyed their counter lunch from the main bar & served at tables outside. Really nice cafés & shops nearby & a tram stop opposite to take you into the CBD.

Great lunch in the restaurant on Sunday with friendly & efficient staff.

We loved it & will be back.

If you're looking for a place to stay where you get to live like a local and have an authentic Melbournian experience, then the Middle Park hotel is for you. This beautifully renovated heritage listed landmark is at ease in the gorgeous, quiet, leafy surroundings of Middle Park, with old world charm and modern functionality.

Arriving at the hotel you immediately get a sense of the years that have passed here. Like an old friend that welcomes you with a smile and a warm hug, walking through the entrance and up the stairs, you feel that you have arrived home. My home during my stay was the beautiful King Suite, with views of the Melbourne Skyline, a huge King size bed, separate lounge area with minibar facilities and an amazing bathroom featuring a separate toilet, bath tub and a dual shower that just went on for days. The accommodation is outstanding value for money, with attention to detail and quality furnishings and free Wi-Fi.

Out the door and down the stairs and you are in a classic Melbourne Pub. The menu is excellent and the service and ambience authentic. Here you'll find those old mates again, sitting around a table, having a beer and just shooting the breeze. This is where the locals meet. On Armstrong Street you'll find plenty to do with Port Phillip Bay a 10 minute walk away and beautiful Albert Park and lake a short stroll away. Public transport to the city and St Kilda is at your doorstep with the 96 tram stop across the road.

As a well seasoned traveller the Middle Park Hotel is a unique travel experience that you won't find in the city centre. With warm and friendly staff that are welcoming and genuine, just like meeting up with that old friend, you'll never want to stay anywhere else when you are in Melbourne, again and again.

Many thanks Adam M for such a kind and detailed review. Some of the language you used to describe Middle Park and the hotel itself could not have been better said myself. the lovely, spacious King Suite is my personal favourite room with the lounge and very, very large bathroom.
I'm sure next time you do come to stay in Melbourne you will be greeted like an old friend and hopefully the King Suite will be available once again!

Thanks again Adam.
