Artfully created in what was once Melbourne’s first commercial bakery, this lovely boutique hotel is tastefully elegant as well as being casual and comfortable, with lots of personal touches. Built around 1850, the building retains some original features, including the brick ovens that are now a feature of the breakfast room. All rooms have either queen- or king-size beds, and each guest room has its own private bathroom just across the hallway. There’s a guest lounge with an extensive library, and a “butler’s pantry” with a bar that operates on an honor system. Owner Paul Humphreys is passionate about Melbourne and happy to help you with your travel plans.
