Great service at check-in and Nick booked us one of the smart cars to use one day and also got us a reservation at a restaurant we wanted to go to.

Our room was great. Nice sea view and balcony, big spacious room, trendy design and a comfy bed.

The smart car was pretty cool. We took it down to Phillip Island for the day with no problems.

Fleur depot de pain was really good. Especially the french toast at breakfast. Probably the best french toast I've ever had.

Handy distance between the shops at st kilda and the city.

Would definately stay again!

I stayed at the hotel for a few nights with my wife. We had really friendly service, the rooms and beds were amazing (we were upgraded which was great!) and it was overall a really nice stay. The hotel experience was really refreshing compared to other hotels I've stayed in recently. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

We can't wait to go back. Stayed for 4 nights and had a great time in The city. The blackman was close to chapel street for clothes shopping, but at night there are not heaps of restaurants close by. It is pretty easy to get to the cbd though. The room had a big balcony with a nice view of the city and was very clean. The art is a nice change. Mark on reception was very helpful with things to do. We found the staff in the cafe were good too. We would recommend this hotel if you don't want all the hussle of the city. Try the almond crossiants.

What can I say, my friends and I had a great weekend at The Blackman. The experience was fabulous from the beautiful and clean rooms all with unique decorating in each and the most comfortable bed, to the perfect location being not far to city while also being able to walk the botanical gardens and Albert Park lake.
The staff were very helpful with our enquiries, suggesting interesting places to visit in Melbourne. You can also hire a scooter or bike if youd prefer the walking.
Ordering room service was easy and fast delivery being very tasty after a long day out. However the food in the restaurant was classic and has a great atmosphere to enjoy with friends and family also. I will be back for dinner even if I wasn't staying.
This is a perfect choice to stay for couples of friends who want to spoil themselves with a weekend away.
Thank you

In need of a retreat The Blackman delivered the perfect setting. Most impressive was the size and design of the suite and coupled with the impecable presentation, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cleanliness and the attention to detail from the bedroom to the bathroom as well as the comprehensive suite amenities were well received. The actual orientation of the balcony was also a breath of fresh air as many hotels do not offer this and we really enjoyed the city views. We could not complain about any aspect of the service and in particular the welcome at the front desk was professional and most friendly. The dining facilities adjacent to The Blackman were also most affordable and catered to a wide range of tastes. Congratulations to all staff at The Blackman and we will most certainly be staying again.

Room Tip: Corner room facing the south-east was quiet, spacious and fresh

I stayed with my partner for a weekend away. The room was very spacious and clean. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was also good. The staff helped with a few things and were extremely accommodating. We will return for our next anniversary.
