Fabulous rooms, bathrooms very small though. Really nice facilities and reception staff are just lovely. The restaurants on both sides need a bit of a rocket in the mornings for a quick breakfast with a rush. There was no urgency when we gave them a time frame and often looked a little listless and unsure of what to do. Needed...

Awesome stay! I normally stay closer to the city, however, The Blackman may now have changed my mind! Location, facilities and service were exceptional. Great morning coffee, afternoon champagne was perfect out in the sunshine and the fries hit the spot. Staff were very accommodating -in particular Maddie at reception was divine-she sets a great benchmark for customer service. It...

We stayed in a Deluxe Studio Suite Twin room and were so impressed by the amount of space! Plenty of room for the whole family. The view from where we were on the 16th floor was breathtaking. Perfect location too! When the kids got cabin-fever, it was a very short walk to the most gorgeous parklands and a quick tram...

Great staff, fantastic room, comfortable beds. Extra trundle for child number 3 easily accommodated in our large deluxe studio suite room. Nothing was too much for staff. Cafe/bar was a bonus. Superb location. Easy walk to Fawkner Park or Albert Park lake. Would certainly recommend to family's or couples.

We have stayed here 3 times, each occasion was honestly fantastic. The staff are wonderful and helpful. The rooms are well appointed and clean. The rooms with views on the upper floors facing the lake are highly recommended. Little touches like 'welcome back' notes from the staff make us feel like valued guests, and the EVO products in the bathrooms...

Room was spacious , however cleaning standard could have been better. Sink wasn't wiped down after servicing and had to ask for tea to be replaced on 2 occasions. More like a small apartment than a hotel room. Great little balcony to enjoy the view of St Kilda Rd. Both restaurants in the hotel were fantastic. Food was delicious and...

Great location, funky little rooms, awesome are work everywhere. This is a great hotel to stay for a short time while visiting Melbourne. Staff are helpful and accommodating to your needs. Everything feels like new and linen and pillows are to die for. 100% recommended.

This hotel is lovely, personalised by the numerous interesting art works throughout done by Blackman. They are quirky and add so much character to this very nicely furnished hotel. We had a room on the 13th floor so the views over the city & to the ocean were great. We had a balcony that added to the already large room...
