The food did take a while to arrive, but it was cooked fresh, and tasted like it was, so I guess that is to...

Without any particular reason other than price and location we choose this as our one night in the area. Clean rooms, bit small but adequate. Judging by the abundance of clientele in the restaurant it must be reasonable atleast to even good. Keep in mind it is situated at the main road through town so it wont be quiet, but...

We had a family dinner here on Saturday night. Delicious food at a good price and fantastic service. We all had the cod special it was cooked to perfection. Great pub atmosphere downstairs and lovely restaurant upstairs. We will return another evening.

We book a room for our friends who came to visit us, and both us and most importantly they loved this hotel Great rooms with really comfortable beds and pillows, and spotlessly clean throughout. We ate as we have done before and the food was exceptional. Staff were all very good and efficient.

We were in Melbourne for a concert at the nearby Assembly Rooms and had a one night stay at Harpur's. When I saw that it was above a pub I feared that it may be noisy- as it turned out this was not a problem at all. Our room faced onto the main street and was a good size, though...

This is a pub in the center of Melbourne. The rooms are on top. So some noise could snick in, or don't sleep on top of a pub. Non smoking rooms. I had to pay in advance in the pub, as there is no reception in pubs. Internet ok. Breakfast is served in the pub on demand, book the night...
