Cool and luxurious in Melbourne

The Hatton hotel epitomises Melbourne cool. Those who value design, location, and luxury will find The Hatton the perfect Melbourne base.

A boutique hotel nestled between Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens and Fawkner Park, The Hatton has 20 rooms, each unique in character and style. Our room had a private courtyard and was styled with a combination of antique and modern furniture. The old and new are combined skillfully; you are reminded this is no ordinary hotel, but a place to savour being in.

Style pervades at The Hatton. The 1902 building is a grand old dame, having been restored with skill by the Hatton family in 2000.

Detail has not been forgotten here. A diverse and wonderfully eclectic arrangement of art hangs throughout the building. The corridor outside the room we stayed in is covered in stencil and graffiti art, while elsewhere ancient Chinese, deco, and Aboriginal works adorn the walls. The lobby has iPads for those keen for connection, and tram cards are on offer for the quick trip into the city.

Our stay was faultless. The breakfast was divine, and in-room amenities were quality L’Occitane. The roof-top terrace, from which we enjoyed a pre-dinner drink, offers views of this special city. The staff are relaxed and friendly; they know Melbourne and are keen to share insider’s tips.

To me a Melbourne visit is about creative inspiration and the joy of discovering beauty and texture in this vibrant city. A stay at The Hatton is the perfect complement to this.
