How The Hotel Lindrum Fits In
The Hotel Lindrum was added as an Accor verified, MGallery collection hotel. MGallery by Sofitel is a subset of high-end Accor hotels, each completely unique to one another, with locations on every continent. They are a great departure from accommodation you’re probably used to. MGallery hotels are particularly luxurious boutique accommodations that entice those with a particular love for travel, and culture.
Hotel Lindrum satisfies that requirement with it’s rich history. Let’s explore it’s past.
In the early 19 hundred’s, the building was also commissioned as a shop for popular Melbourne tea merchants, The Griffiths Brothers. If those walls could talk, they would have a lot of Australian history to relive.
The design of the building reflects the style that was popular in Australia and Europe during it’s construction, a Romanesque Revival style with red brick, decorative “render bands”, upper level colonnades and a large arcade order with “oriel elements”.
The Hotel Lindrum is appropriately named for the famous billiards family, The Lindrum’s as the building that now houses the hotel was once The Lindrum’s Billiards Hall. Used by several famous billiards players including Walter Lindrum, the walls of the Hotel Lindrum have seen many great athletes play here. The history of the building is still well maintained, incorporating aspects such as one of the original billiards tables from the Lindrum’s Billiard Center and memorabilia from Walter Lindrum scattered throughout the billiards room and the hotel.
One of the onsite dining options, felt restaurant is named for the fuzzy green material covering traditional billiards tables and many corners of the hotel echo its original charm with dark woods, rich leathers and ornate fireplaces.
A talked-about, authentic touch is the complimentary newspaper that guests receive each morning of there stay. When was the last time you sat back and read news that wasn’t delivered to you on a touch screen? At the Hotel Lindrum, they want you to feel transported back in time in the most comfortable ways. The hotel building, before it was a billiards hall, was also home to offices and printing studios for the Herald newspaper, making the complimentary newspapers especially relevant and special.
This rich history is just the sort of reason that the Hotel Lindrum belongs in the MGallery by Sofitel’s group of hotels.
