Our hotel is located quite literally on the doorstep of Melbourne’s restaurant and epicurean centre, Lygon Street Carlton. We are also at the heart of many of Melbourne's icons, treasures and tourist attractions. Carlton itself also offers an absolute visual treat, as it is an entire suburb of glorious Victorian Architecture, which has not only been preserved, but renovated, restored and renewed.

Given what Carlton and its surrounds have to offer, its location with easy access to the city, and the gastronomic delights that it has to offer, why would you stay anywhere else? You will salivate just looking at the beautiful cakes, chocolates and nougat at Brunettis, whilst everywhere you wander you will smell the aroma of latte and cappuccino. Located close by are winners of 'The Age' Good Food Guide Chef's Hats such as D.O.C, Masani's, 235, Il Vicolo, Jimmy Watson's, Lemon Grass, Balzari, Universita, Cafe Italia, Donninis, Dimmatinas and Shakahari.
Melbourne City is 1.2km from our hotel. Enjoy great shopping from bargain fashion outlets to high-end fashion boutiques. There are big department stores like MYER, David Jones and DFO at South Wharf. Check out the endless list of entertainment available in the city or head down to Crown Casino just over at Southbank.
