Hotel Lindrum

[10/11/09] 

It’s a whole new ball game at Hotel Lindrum
 
One thing about many boutique hotels is that, while they’re classy, sexy little affairs (like Japanese aircrew), they’re often lacking in decent facilities, as if a guest would rather spend hours silently contemplating the juxtaposition of a transparent Philippe Starck chair than, as the song says, “get physical”. How many times have you left your tiny ‘art’ hotel to roam the streets of a strange city, only because there’s nothing else to do and your company won’t fork out for pay-per-view?

 



Hotel Lindrum not only has one of men’s favourite hobbies at its heart, but also has a unique history. Located in the heart of Melbourne, close to theatres, markets and the casino, this ultra-chic little house of slumber has had many incarnations, including as a tea warehouse, newspaper printer and the city’s top billiards hall. Named after regular visitor and snooker champ, Walter Lindrum, the hotel’s sleek, simplistic décor has retained many original features, including a sprawling, immaculate snooker table – the perfect accompaniment to pre-dinner Silver Bullets. Rooms are spacious and luxurious; bathrooms are more ‘urban cosy’, but are still a step up from most Hong Kong water closets. There are also flat-screen televisions galore and an intimate bar, where the cocktails are both exotic and strong (like Governator Schwarzenegger).

And don’t act like you’re not singing along with Olivia right now!
