Lisa H. Business - 15/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Staff are very welcoming. Room was great, bed and pillows wonderful. My only suggestion is maybe supply fresh milk for tea/coffee opposed to long life milk.

Good afternoon Lisa! It was great to have you stay with us. I agree! Our beds are like clouds. I'm sorry about the long life milk, please let me know when you come to stay next time and I will be sure to put some fresh milk in the room for you. Kind regards, Katie

Stayed on arrival from interstate, and needed to isolate while waiting COVID testing. Hotel staff were very friendly and supportive of making sure we knew what to do snd that we had access to anything we needed particularly while isolating. Lovely location.

Good afternoon! It was great having you stay! hopefully next time you come, you will be able to properly explore the area. Kaitlyn is great, we are very fortunate with the team we have at The Cullen. I will pass along your positive review to her. Thanks again! and we hope to welcome you back soon! Katie

Debra C. Families - 07/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Excellent booking and check-in service. We had a dual key studio - perfect for a Mother/Daughter stay. The rooms were well appointed and spacious. Staff were friendly and professional. Located close to the hospital that necessitated our visit to Melbourne. We will definitely stay at The Cullen again.

Dear Debra, Thank you so much for a fantastic review. I'm so glad our dual key suite suited your needs and that our team were so helpful. We are looking forward to welcoming you back on your next stay. Live fearlessly, Jamie Capp General Manager

Janne O. Business - 15/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel easy to find, parking available. Loved the cows and works of art abounding. Disappointing that due to Covid it was not busy and restaurants not open for seated dining. Staff were excellent. Trip was a medical one - surgery - so not looking to party.

Dear Janne, Its great to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully next time you are in town, you can dine in and try the restaurants. It'll have to be a leisure trip next time! We look forward to welcoming you back and please reach out if you would like to stay with us again. My email is attached. Kind reagrds, Katie

Great location, lovely staff & lovely rooms

Kerri M. Couples - 03/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We arrived as lockdown began in Melb and the staff could not be more accomodating in helping us with our requests.

Dear Kerri, Thank you for your review. I'm so glad the team were supportive in what is such a difficult time as restrictions come into place. Unfortunately we are well practiced at this but I hope we don't have to practice it again anytime soon! I look forward to welcoming you back again soon. [Live Fearlessly] Jamie Capp General Manager

Candice Couples - 02/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were very happy with the location of the hotel and amenities. We were particularly appreciative of the front desk staff who helped us tape up a damaged suitcase before we departed. This saved us a lot of trouble and we were impressed that the staff member went above and beyond (unfortunately we have forgotten her name).

Good evening Candice, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. I was also wondering how you went getting your bag on the flight, I'm thrilled to hear you had no issues getting home. We can't wait to welcome you back next time you stay. Please feel free to contact us directly and we will be sure to add robes to your room. Kind regards, Katie

Well located.

Anonymous Couples - 01/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We enjoyed staying at The Cullen. We were disappointed in the room however. We feel the hotel is a bit “ tired” and was not as clean as we would expect. The staff were very friendly and very helpful which made up for it.

Good evening Caroline, Thank you for your review, we are surrounded by some great restaurants and cafes. I'm sorry to hear about your room. Its always great to hear feedback so we can improve. We hope to welcome you back. Kind regards, Katie

Stephen Business - 28/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

As always the Cullen presents well with classy rooms and a great location. Unfortunately not having a basic breakfast option is really disappointing. Being told that when you get up you can walk up the road to a café for breakfast is not a great option, particularly in Melbourne's sometimes drizzly rainy weather. Nevertheless I look forward to coming back again one day, ill just be sure to do some food shopping first. Cheers

Good evening Stephen, Thank you for your review, we are so fortunate to have such an amazing team and to be located in the heart of Prahran. I'm sorry we didn't meet expectations for breakfast, we are trying to work out different options at the hotel to better improve our guests experiences. We hope to welcome you back soon. Kind regards, Katie
