We booked this hotel for a friends 50th birthday weekend after realising the place we wanted to stay hikes the prices $150 for a Saturday night. All three couples spent way too much time trying to work out which type of room they wanted though! So this review will give you an overview of three types of rooms that we chose. We had a premier contemporary room on the 4th floor in the new block adjacent to the old hotel. I chose this as I like the modern touch and I felt the room would be further from street level and thus quieter. The room was gorgeous. Odd to have the bed in the middle of the room (with the office area behind) but it makes a memorable change. Our bathroom was lovely but a bit on the narrow side so you wouldn't want it if you were of a wider stature! The bed was so comfortable I almost stripped it to find out what kind of mattress it was. And as I had hoped the room was completely silent to street noise. VERY happy with my choice. Friend two took a Heritage room - it was decorated and furnished very much like my modern room and really the only thing heritage about it was the slightly more unusual size, high ceilings, ornate skirting boards and old style window. Friend three had a ?Heritage suite? It was a heritage room on the first floor with access to the balcony. It was an L shaped room so the 'lounge area was around the corner. Otherwise it was as per friend 2's room - high ceilings, ornate skirting but with French doors out on the veranda. There are chairs to sit outside your room but the balcony is accessible to all rooms on this floor. I did feel that traffic noise could be heard even with the doors closed. It was still a very nice room. The old part of the building has a beautiful old staircase and ornate lift. It certainly retains some of the history of the place. We never made it to the roof top bar which is a real shame as it was closed for a private function. I find this a bit annoying that even guests can't get there. We had dinner and breakfast reservations elsewhere so didn't trying eating here although we did have a drink in the downstairs bar. The hotel is slightly outside of the happening parts of Perth but it wasn't a long walk to get to the shops or 'Betty's Jetty'. Apparently a Cat bus does service it. We parked at the Wilson carpark as recommended by the hotel and on a Saturday we didn't need the hotel's discount ticket as its a flat $10 overnight parking rate.

From the moment we walked into The Melbourne we had a welcome feeling. The front desk staff were very friendly. The room was clean a fresh. We had afternoon drinks and food in the bar and the staff there were great. Very friendly and hospitable. The food was delicious. The room was equipped with everything from top end tea and coffee to complimentary bottled water and amenities such as ironing board and hair dryer etc. Although our room wasn’t huge it still had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The bathroom was bright, clean and spacious with great water pressure in the shower. If I had one little problem it was the ventilation in the bathroom. The mirror obviously fogged up but it took a long time to clear. Also, although the lighting was good in the bathroom, it was terrible to apply make up. I would suggest a led lamp closer to the mirror or something. Everything else was fantastic. The bed was super comfy as were the pillows. Lovely sheets too. We will definitely return and tell our friends about our positive experience.

Our first time staying at The Melbourne, will probably be our last unfortunately. Check in smooth, check out lady rather curt. Our ‘Heritage’ room was absolutely tiny and freezing cold. The bathroom door was heavily water damaged Im assuming from the shower which had a dirty shower curtain rather than a screen We were looking forward to using the rooftop bar only to find on checkin it was closed due to a private function. This along with the Heritage Room was one of the reasons we chose this hotel. Not worth the money at all.
