“Fantastic location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights. It is right in Chinatown, and close to both the main shopping in CBD, and Parliament House precinct and just around the corner from the theatre district.
Good size and very clean rooms.

First time stay at Punthill LB for our group of 4 women on annual trip to Melbourne and we loved this place.
Fabulous location with all the shops and restaurants of all kinds just minutes walk away. We stayed in 2bdrm suite which was very spacious & clean with very comfy beds. Basic but handy little kitchen. Washing machine, lounge, big TV...everything you need.
Heard some noisy people downstairs one night & bins rolling briefly during the night but only for a moment.
We all agree this is a great place and we will definitely stay here again next year.

We stayed here for 4 nights end of April early May. Had booked the night before we arrived as we got there around 0500. Instructions to access our room were easy as reception was closed at that time.
Our room was fine, clean and well maintained.
Location is great as we walked everywhere after getting advice from reception used the free trams to travel round the city.
Visited the DFO and also Harbourtown outlet shops via the tram.
So easy to get around.
Would defiantly stay at Punthill again when in Melbourne.
So many restaurants right on your doorstep.
Great place

Dear JennyMcIsaac,
Thank you for your lovely review of Punthill Little Bourke.
You definitely took advantage of the central location of this apartment hotel - it's so easy to catch public transport or walk to so many of Melbourne's attractions from this location. The team at the property will be thrilled to know that you found the apartments comfortable and the service so friendly too.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Punthill soon.
Kind regards,

We only stayed a night which was fine but I think this hotel would really suit those wishing to spend a few days in the city. The hotel is in a perfect location especially if you enjoy Chinese cuisine. Our room was reasonably quiet for the city although you could hear the bins being rolled out during the night in the lane outside our window. The bed was firm but comfortable enough and the room had a washing machine, hot plate and microwave that would be handy on an extended stay.
We had a car and parking is at the multi-storey around the corner. The hotel offers a good deal especially if you leave the car in the one spot for a few days. Personally would prefer on-site parking but most people staying here would be flying in I suspect.

Room Tip: Don't drive

Great stay in Melbourne, close to everything the city of Melbourne had to offer. We stayed in a one bedroom, spa apartment which we got as a deal. The disappointing thing was that there was no plug for the spa bath and when we asked for one we got one that didn't fit so we filled the plug hole with soap which kind of worked but you would expect when offered a spa deal that it would all work! Cooking facilities were good, hob and microwave plus fridge. Staff were friendly and helpful though one couldn't remember the email address of the hotel when we wanted to print something which was slightly annoying! The gym is teeny and there are no cardio machines but they do offer a deal with virgin active if you really need a gym. I loved the pool it was really only big enough for one person but peaceful and warm. All in all a great stay!

Dear Swoofles,
Thank you for your review of Punthill Little Bourke.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and also took advantage of the excellent central location of this apartment hotel. We have already obtained a supply of the appropriate plugs and do apologise. We do advertise a fitness room. Unfortunately the condensation from the pool precludes us from having cardio equipment.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Punthill soon.

Great rooms, full of facilities, but the shower screen was a wee short around the bathtub, so water hard to keep off the floor. Front desk A1 especially helpful, worked out the right room needed with balcony. (though balcony very small,but that's the city) comfy bed +++. Handy to so many eating spots. A great location to explore Melbourne.
Cheers Wayne @ Lennox

Room Tip: One with a balcony, the higher the floor, the better.

My daughter booked this hotel for our recent shopping trip to Melbourne and got a very good deal. The staff were fabulously helpful and friendly, the location was so central, the bed super comfy, the room well equipped, clean and tidy. The only thing I found difficult was the lighting in the room was a bit dark but other than that VERY minor thing we had a great stay and would certainly stay here again. Thank you Punthill Little Bourke for making our 'girls' trip so cool.

Dear K1MEEE,
Thank you for your review of Punthill Little Bourke.
Melbourne can definitely be considered a shopping mecca, and we are delighted that you chose Punthill to stay at whilst you 'shopped till you dropped'!
A few weeks ago, we ordered some replacement light fittings which will offer brighter lighting and they should arrive very soon.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Punthill in the future.
Kind regards,
