What used to be the Lindrum Billiard Centre has now transformed into a handsome hotel packed with distinct character and charm. Inside Hotel Lindrum lie 59 rooms with high ceilings and sleek contemporary interiors. Enjoy elegant dining at Felt Restaurant, a cocktail by the fireplace in the back bar or simply relax with a drink while enjoying a game of billiards with one of the historic building’s original billiard tables.
26 Flinders St, VIC 3000
Being part of Art Series Hotel Group it’s no wonder why The Larwill Studio resembles a modern art gallery rather than Tripadvisor’s current top rated hotel in Melbourne. Dedicated to renowned Australian artist David Larwill, the boutique hotel draws inspiration from his studio with bright, playful Larwill artworks complementing the hotel’s contemporary design. All 96 aesthetically pleasing rooms have incredible parkland views, plush beds with signature white bedding and unique slogan pillows as well as free yoga mats.
49 Flemington Road, Parkville VIC 3052
What To Pack
This heritage-listed hotel stands out because of its majestic façade – the hotel has been beautifully restored to retain the style of the 1880s. Sophisticated furnishings, opulent fabrics and plush, feather top beds with classic designs and colour palettes sit prettily in all 95 spacious boutique studios, and one and two-bedroom apartments.
