There are a number of small hotels in Melbourne tucked into corners off the little lanes in the CBD and we have now stayed at two of them. This one is on Flinders Lane, narrow entrance door up a few steps and into a long narrow but beautifully lit reception area with small bar and snacks area at the rear. Check out the life-size wire horse and cart! No big hotel lobby feel and rather quirky, delightful little place. Looks as if it might have been originally an office block, but extremely well converted. Very friendly staff, lovely rooms, a mite cold perhaps, even with central heating on full blast, lap pool on the roof (too cold in August), restaurant down below the road accessed from the entrance. Not sure it is part of the hotel, but very handy. Non-alcoholic bar in the room and container of delicious candies, all free. Coffee and tea trays available on request. Free WiFi. The hotel describes itself as the world's first dessert-inspired hotel and the treats and friandises available in the room and at the bar are enticing. Altogether a really lucky find.
