Room clean and spacious. Great location and for the price great value. Communal bathroom could be cleaned up a little but for 1 night was no problem

I was surprised how nice the room was furnished seeing it was budget accommodation. I loved that a Kettle was available on the room. Location is great and good for a one night stay especially if you are going out in the evening in Melbourne. The only down side was the shared bathrooms could have been cleaner and there was a crack in the floor of the shower cubical l used. Overall a very good value and l will be returning.

8/10 Very good

A hidden gem for reasonably priced accommodation in a lovely area. The rooms were visibly clean & I think recently upgraded. The bathroom facilities were a little shabby, but for an overnight stay, it was perfect. (Especially if you are attending a function at the hotel). Would definitely stay again.

10/10 Exceptional

We loved the location of the College Lawn, being on the corner in a residential area on the fringe of Chapel Street and a short walk down to the lovely array of shops, cafes and restaurants on Greville St. The hotel itself is a very welcoming and vibrant place with a pretty wholesome menu, helpful staff and some of the best Old Fashioned and Espresso Martinis we’ve ever tried. The room itself was very fresh, clean and comfortable with lovely touches for a room so economical. The shared bathrooms were more traditional hostel-like but did the job. Having a shared kitchen was a welcome bonus. We would definitely recommend the College Lawn as a comfortable, well-positioned, economical and more-than-meets-the-eye accommodation for a stay in the Windsor area of Melbourne.
