Melbourne’s Hotel Lindrum – a member of the M Gallery Collection – has unveiled a stylish transformation of its 59 guest rooms. Award-winning interior’s firm Bates Smart Architects has refreshed the boutique hotel’s accommodation rooms into sophisticated yet welcoming retreats of calm in the heart of vibrant Melbourne.
An airy colour palette of champignon, taupe and crisp white compliments the generous feeling of space in the rooms and touches of earthy tones add warmth and excitement to the overall aesthetic. Stylish new features include the Philosophy desk lamp by Tigger Hall Design that sits atop discreet workstations and Kravet’s Grass Cloth wallpaper adding an element of texture to the overall design.
Wearing its heritage proudly, the guest room’s soaring high ceilings and charming wooden floor boards hark back to the hotel’s former life as Melbourne’s famed Lindrum Billiard Centre. Both of these endearing original features have remained in the update whilst plush new soft furnishings have given the rooms a well-appointed and contemporary refresh.
Warm lighting and heavy wool rugs create a cosy home-away-from-home while the sweeping arch windows, a distinctive feature of the hotel’s Deluxe rooms, have been dressed with soft translucent drapery; the use of the light fabric allowing light to pour in whilst also providing guests with privacy.
Aware of the importance for a good night sleep after busy days exploring lively Melbourne, Hotel Lindrum has updated all rooms with the latest five-star Accor bed which is hand stitched locally in Victoria. In addition to the new custom-made mattresses, bespoke bed heads dressed in silk chenille add a sophisticated touch to the rooms. Appelles Apothecary amenities using certified organic Australian ingredients have also been introduced into the bathrooms.
New Samsung smart LCD televisions and Philips dual docking stations have been installed, giving guests access to the very latest in technology. Furthermore, every guest room at Hotel Lindrum includes complimentary wi-fi.
Anne Marie Lennon, general manager, Hotel Lindrum said, “We are really delighted with the new look guest rooms following the recent refurbishment. Bates Smart Architects have managed to perfectly capture the contemporary vibe of the hotel while still paying homage to the history of the unique building that it inhabits. The new look rooms are elegant and sophisticated. We look forward to welcoming new and loyal guests through the doors to experience the updated rooms first hand in coming months.”
With its prime location on Flinders St, Hotel Lindrum is in the heart of Australia’s fashion and dining capital. Walking distance to some of Melbourne’s most renowned eateries, the hotel is also on the doorstep to some of the city’s main draw cards including Melbourne Cricket Ground, Tennis Centre, Melbourne’s Casino, Convention & Exhibition Centre. Boutique shopping is a stone’s throw away as is the Victorian Arts Centre, Federation Square, Southbank Precinct and Hamer Hall.
