Hotel Description

Smack in the middle of downtown Melbourne, and sandwiched between sleek skyscrapers, is a classic Edwardian building, a former billiards hall and dive saloon thoroughly restored to suit the modern taste for historic renovations. The result is a comfortable and surprisingly chic hotel, the polar opposite of what this neighborhood would have been a few decades ago.

Interiors are modern, but a sort of homely modern, with a rich and detailed look that is, to our eyes, more suited to a fine hotel than the stark designer’s-workshop look many seem to prefer. Lindrum is not quite a five-star hotel, if that matters—there’s no pool, and probably some other technicalities we’re forgetting—but it’s close enough. The modern boutique hotel experience can be a bit light on services and, well, service, but not here; once you’ve found your way into the unassuming lobby you’ll find the staff quite eager to cater to your whims.

Some vestiges remain to suggest the ideal of a saloon, though a more upscale one than the real Lindrum’s was—there’s still a billiards room, with one top-quality table, and new urbane touches like a cigar bar with an open fireplace lend to a feeling more like a club than a hotel. Perhaps that’s the appeal; Hotel Lindrum is a favorite with the arts and entertainment crowd, and the odd celebrity who wishes for some privacy and anonymity (though it’s hard to stir up much of a paparazzi frenzy in down-to-earth Melbourne).

The rooms are as rich and inviting as the public spaces, with all the modern must-haves, like those wide pie-plate shower heads and a menu of pillows, as well as some old-world flourishes like polished hardwood floors and tall arched windows. Not all the views are perfect, as much of the surrounding neighborhood hasn’t caught up with the hotel’s restored charm, but the better ones look out over the city or even the Botanic Gardens.
