We stayed here for a night after flying into Melbourne and enjoyed it. Our room, a deluxe studio suite, was very well furnished and had a kitchenette so you could self cater if you wanted to. The bed was extremely comfortable and they supplied all you needed, although some of the complimentary items such as tea, coffee etc and other bathroom items were hidden away in cupboards and not obviously noticeable.
The Blackman does not have a restaurant as such but there is a French Patisserie/Coffee shop by the entrance which provided an excellent breakfast facility and also an Italian restaurant on the other side of the entrance which does all meals. You do not have to walk far to find other shops and restaurants and there is a tram stop close by for transport into the city.
Our only criticism would be that you have to pay for Wifi, which most other hotels we have stayed in provide free.
Having said that it is a really nice hotel with helpful staff and located in a nice neighbourhood with a park and the Botanical Gardens close by.
