Crown Metropol's rustic signature restaurant, is the brainchild of Executive Chef John Lawson, whose reputation for modern comfort food bursting with big flavours last year earned him a coveted nomination for The Age's Young Chef of the Year. Influenced by stints in New York and Toulouse, Lawson combines traditional French techniques with world class local produce. This a young man who's not afraid to make luxurious produce the hero on the plate.

Mum and daughter getaway

We stayed at the Metropol as we have before and loved the location and pool. This time service not as good. Waited half and hour in line to check in. Left room service menu on door( breakfast order) , only to find it still hanging there in the morning. Also my daughter wanted her acrylic nails done at ishka but they don't do them so had to go elsewhere. For the price I would expect excellence. Also valet parking $50 a rip off!

Family weekend

We were in Melbourne for a charity walk. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was perfect except for the pillows, a bit too big. Didn't investigate if they had a pillow menu! This hotel is always a joy to stay in. Pool area is great.

Exceptional experience

From the moment we alighted from the taxi at the foyer our stay was an absolute delight. Staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful and Mr Hive was a welcoming place to relax whilst our room was readied. The room and view was to die for and the facilities second to none. My wife particularly appreciated the fact that the shops in the hotel complex were open so late. There was nothing that we could fault, from the very efficient cleaning staff through to Mr Hive's staff to reception and bag handlers.

great hotel

great hotel, the only problem, that you can't open your window in the room, meaning that if you have a smokking room, you can't make the smell go away
