Melbourne’s Hotel Lindrum has unveiled a stylish transformation of its 59 guest rooms.
Award-winning interior’s firm Bates Smart Architects – the designers responsible for Federation Square and chic Sydney eateries Rockpool Bar and Grill and Spice Temple – have refreshed the boutique hotel’s accommodation rooms into a “sophisticated yet welcoming retreat of calm in the heart of vibrant Melbourne”, according to managers Accor.
“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,” Accor says.
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 their 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 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.
“We are really delighted with the new look guest rooms following the recent refurbishment,” said Hotel Lindrum General Manager, Anne Marie Lennon.
“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,” she said.
Hotel Lindrum has also updated all rooms with the latest five-star Accor bed, 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 (from Vanity Group) 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 WiFi.
