Classic hotel stay

In a beautiful old building this hotel affords a stay reflecting past times. Be aware though - if you don't request a room in the old section you may be accommodated in the new wing (which, disappointingly, we were) - this is very generic. Staff were rather lacklustre in their service.

Fat Sally's (opposite) was a great pub for atmosphere, service, food and value.

Great Stay

Everything was perfect except no room service, Tea n coffee set not replenished n bed not made. We expected on our return for second night from our day trip the bed would have been made and replenished the tea/coffee set. Otherwise, fantastic stay.

Room 19 is a Stand Out

Very impressed with the Brydone Hotel. We had room 19 which was very spacious, the bathroom was huge and extremely well presented. Toni at reception was friendly and gave us excellent helpful advice when we were planning our days and nights. I would stay here again without doubt. It's right on the main street, there was no street noise, the sunrise each morning over the harbour was beautiful.

Great value

We booked this at the last minute and we were really impressed with the room we had for the price we paid. The bed wasn't the most comfortable we've slept on but other than that all the furnishings were top notch.

Good location...tad bit old

No air conditioning in the hotel makes for a very stuffy environment. Hotel is old but nice and clean. Several restaurants a Ross the street that offer variety of foods. We had excellent pizza and salads. Penguin colony was lack luster. Only 20-30 penguins come in to nest... We've seen thousands in Melbourne so didn't pay the $25 per head to see the little guys. Would visit again I the summer.
