The Federation Square is a 9-minute walk away. The Melbourne Cricket Ground and Royal Botanic Gardens are within walking distance.

Celebrate the fresh beginning with a New Year’s Eve dinner. Melbourne 2017 is the ideal place for you to be swept away by the collective fetes.
Melbourne has a spectacular skyline on any given day. However, the sky turns into art when the fireworks start at 9 pm, and then later at 12 pm. The Federation Square, which is the heart of the city, will host a free concert with Multicultural Arts Victoria. The music will be catchy; the show will be massive, and the fireworks will be remarkable.
felt restaurant is located across from this local sighting. You can enjoy the beautifully prepared dinner and look out the window to see the spectacle.
This year’s live sites, where the fireworks will take place, are the Treasury Gardens, Docklands, Flagstaff Gardens and Kings Domain. The history of using pyrotechnics for celebrations goes back to 1839. Fireworks greeted the arrival of both Lady Franklin, wife of the Governor of Tasmania, and Superintendent Charles Joseph La Trobe, when they came to Melbourne.
Since then, they have played a significant role in every big city event. Welcoming the new 2018 is the most prominent occasion of them all.
Finding the perfect spot to celebrate can be difficult, which is why we offer you the New Year’s Eve dinner. Melbourne 2017 is waiting for you right outside our door. On the inside of the felt restaurant, there will be magic and happiness. The traditional cuisine meets new trends on your plate; you will enjoy the taste of fresh and healthy ingredients cooked to perfection.
Location makes a difference, so luckily we have the perfect spot for an NYE dinner in Melbourne center.
Hotel Lindrum’s location is ideal for travelers and locals to book a NYE dinner. Melbourne is the biggest city in Victoria. Finding a place that will incorporate the cultural and festive experience comes down to location and proximity. We can offer them both.
Our charming boutique hotel is close to the top tourist attractions and local favorites. We mentioned the Federation Square. However, there are Collins Street, Brunswick Street and Chapel Street, if you desire to take a stroll after midnight.
Nearby is the Southbank, once an industrial area and now a booming center, featuring trendy restaurants, bars and outdoor cafes. Walking alongside Yarra River would be incredibly romantic, especially on New Year’s Eve after a delightful dinner. Moreover, if you are feeling lucky, you can try that luck in the Melbourne Casino, a magnificent venue that takes the breath away.
“ Arguably one of the best hotel stays I have done over the last year, simply being one of those places where everything simply "worked." Location of the hotel is superb on the edge of the CBD, with an excellent selection of restaurants in walking distance and easy tram connections more broadly.
The layout of the room was outstanding for both working and relaxing in-room, and hotel design overall was stylish but still exquisitely functional. Staff was incredibly helpful and professional, from front desk providing pointers to Melbourne's transit system to restaurant & bar service is on point. Simply put, everything worked nicely from start to finish.” Kevin G from New York City, the USA, on Trip Advisor
The amazing history of Hotel Lindrum and felt restaurant that will bring authenticity to your New Year’s Eve experience.
Hotel Lindrum is a boutique hotel that has a fabulous story, rooted in the history of the city. The Griffiths Brothers built this beautiful building to expand their business with tea, coffee and cocoa products. Till this day, you can see the red brick Romanesque Revival style of the architect and the upper story colonnade. From the outside, there is a decorative façade with render bands.
Moreover, we kept it all, because we want our guests to transcend to that place and enjoy themselves. Our building was once part of the Verona Press, and later became one of the strongholds of Herald newspaper. Before we opened our doors in 1999, it was a prominent billiard establishment in the name of Walter Lindrum.
Imagine spending New Year’s Eve in a hotel with considerable historical value. You’ll be relishing in the warm atmosphere while sipping sparkling wine and dining.
“I had the fortunate opportunity to stay at Hotel Lindrum, and I was not disappointed. Hotel Lindrum is stunningly eloquent from the moment you walk in the door. The hotel is small enough that you feel welcomed and valued form the minute the door is opened. The building itself is historic and very interesting. The staff is very friendly and the service outstanding.
I highly recommend eating in the restaurant if you get the opportunity, as the food matches the charm and style of the hotel. The rooms are classic, although you will not have a view, given the design of this historic building. The bed is super plush, and all the trimmings are perfect.
Location-wise, you are close to the tram line and 1 or 2 stops from Flinders St. Station. I will have no hesitation in staying here again if I am lucky enough to get the opportunity.” Hoopega from Sydney, Australia, on Trip Advisor

Moreover, it is right across the street from a stop for the free City Tram. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed, with a new, modern vibe. Everything is spotless and in excellent condition. The lobby, restaurant, and public areas are excellent. Highly recommended for a comfortable, luxurious place to stay in Melbourne.” Tom01867 from Reading, Massachusetts, on Trip Advisor

“ My husband and I enjoyed both breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and found every meal we chose to be 5-star quality. Not only was the menu selection extensive, everything was prepared and presented beautifully. The service was exceptional, and the wait staff was delightful, providing us with recommendations and demonstrating a clear knowledge of the menu and what the kitchen could accommodate.
No request was too much, and the results were very much enjoyed by the both of us. Being vegetarian I was very impressed with the choices available to me and found even then that the kitchen could be more flexible if I required. We were so pleasantly surprised by the high level of food and service which we have not always found to be the case of restaurants based onsite of a hotel. This is definitely worth a visit!” Lizzie W on Trip Advisor
