We stayed in The Melbourne on a weekend as in Perth it is MUCH cheaper to stay at a hotel on the weekend compared with during the week (so the opposite to everywhere else I've been). We had a pretty good experience and the location is very handy. We even walked to Kings Park, although it's up a steep hill so was a definite cardio workout.
The hotel has a cafe, pub and restaurant and we found both the pub and cafe to be very family friendly. The food is also pretty delicious.
The hotel is very old and has had a refurbishment and does have a lot of character, although the walls in the hallways, especially the corners were chipped, dented and missing paint, so the maintenance could be a bit better. The rooms are a decent size (we stayed in a deluxe) but my husband and I thought the rooms should have been renovated more in keeping with the old world charm of the hotel. Instead all the cupboards and desks are in that cheap fake wood veneer. I also found housekeeping a bit more relaxed then I like, our room service dishes from Friday were left on a table in the hallway until Sunday afternoon.
All in all it was a pretty good hotel and we would probably stay there again.
