With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I was looking for a relaxing way to spend the weekend, so I decided what better way than to book into the Punthill Manhattan.

The Punthill Manhattan is located at 57 Flinders Lane, Melbourne and is close to the lanes overflowing with trendy cafes and street dining. The apartments are positioned behind the “Paris End” of Collins Street and are close to all the boutique designer shops.  It’s also a small walk to the Treasury Gardens and the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

The Punthill Manhattan have modern style warehouse apartments including one, two and three bedrooms and are “reminiscent of New York living”.  Now I can’t say how accurate the New York living style is because I have yet to visit New York.

The Punthill Manhattan has a very small reception area, but this didn’t take away from the great service I received. I was very promptly checked in and was shown to the lift.

As we walked down the creaky halls to our apartment, I was pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded from a 1 bedroom to a 2 bedroom.  I was also grateful that they had provided a complimentary port a cot for my daughter.  The rooms were very clean, spacious and modern.

Our apartment had a fully self-contained kitchen with oven, stove and fridge and a spacious living area which was fantastic for my daughter to run around in.  The flat screen TV was great too especially as we bought our USB full of movies.

The bathroom was very roomy and had great washing facilities including washing machine and dryer.

There were a couple of negatives that I noted that could have been improved including upgrading the bathroom.  The shower is over the bath which is a bit outdated and it’s quite a big step into the bath making it very slippery to get out off.  Also the bathroom sink needed to be replaced as the grout was damaged, but that’s just my personal preference.

There is no on site car parking at the Punthill Manhattan but there is a car park next door.

I would like to thank the Punthill Manhattan for the complimentary bottle of house wine that was waiting on arrival.

I stayed as a paying guest at The Punthill Manhattan and my opinion is definitely my own.
