Reviewed 26 March 2012

Love the high ceilings, heaps of potential, but rooms are tired. Cheap furniture, small TV's.

Our room was located on the car park side of the hotel, but the blinds blocked the light effectively and the bed was a delight. We so enjoyed the breakfast buffet we also tried dinner. Delicious! The staff were helpful and friendly. Nice location, close to shopping and attractions.

I entirely agree with the last 2 reviews. The room was very good in that it was spacious and had good views over to the sporting venues but the windows were dirty. The room was rather masculine in decor-no mirrors except in the bathroom.
They weren't at all happy with us when we objected to paying extra for expresso at breakfast even when we were paying for a cooked breakfast which we didn't have.
Don't think I would stay here again.

I first stayed at the Lindrum a few years ago. this time I notuiced it is in need of some, fairly cosmetic, refurbishment. The owners need to walk carefully around and see things as new guests do - paintwork, varnish in need of touching up, dirty lampshades etc. Having said this, the Lindrum is a refreshing alternative to formulaic international hotels and is quite comfortable with large guest rooms and good-size bathrooms. Within easy walking distance of the main shopping and business areas and Chinatown, as well as the Olympic Park area with its sporting and entertainment facilities.

Room Tip: Ask for one not on the car park side, if that's possible.

This is a nice boutique style hotel in a city with lots of choices.
Only stayed one night in early February 2012 and was immediatley impresssed with the friendly welcome. Room - superior - was magnificient and large with high ceiling. En-suite bathroom had lots of nice touches but actually looked a little tired and could have benefitted from a deep clean around some of the edges. Only a minor point though as overall bedroom was very comfortable.
