After many many years sans a night away, my partner and I experienced a truly delightful 24 hours at the Larwill. Kiara and her team graciously extended us a room upgrade to a fantastic (and so quiet!) corner room with views of the park and the city skyline and then completely

Hotel's Favourite
I stayed at Larwill for two nights and I will definitely go back. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room was clean and room service from the restaurant next door was absolutely delicious. Staff at reception were most helpful and courteous.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review GrandTour62868161689! There are some pretty awesome cakes in the world, so it's pretty special that you think we take it... My baking skills are next to non-existent, however it seems that making trips away from home easier could be more in our forte? We know that not all trips can be stress free, but our friendly team are here 24/7 to do what we can to make things run as smooth as possible. We are lucky to be located on Melbourne's biggest Park and the views from the rooms don't disappoint, with floor to ceiling windows there's loads of light, and amazing views of the park. We hope to welcome you back to stay with us again sometime soon! Kind regards, Matt O

The hotel is located inside the Melbourne children’s Hospital so inside the building you can find 4 restaurants, a supermarket and a gym. Furthermore, being inside a hospital didn’t disturb my stay in any way. It was like the hospital wasn’t even there. The location is not great

Thanks for your review juanf003, It would be humble of us to say that there are a few food places around, because we are spoilt for choice. There are plenty of food options in the same building, or if you have the bug to travel, North Melbourne Is only a short stroll away has some tasty treats for sure. We like to think that our location gets the best of both worlds, while a tram takes approximately 10 minutes to arrive into the hustle and bustle of the city, our location means we get the luxury of Melbourne's biggest park right on our doorstep! David Larwill's work covers most of our walls his bight and contemporary art work is sure to leave you inspired. Our custom made Art Series beds are probably the most talked about item in town, and rumour has it that they might be getting their own star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame! We hope to welcome you back to stay with us again, Kind regards, Matt O

Thanks for your review timar206, It's awesome to hear that you love staying with us. Our Parkview Corner King rooms really do get the best of both worlds... while admiring the biggest park in Melbourne from one window, the other side of the room has fantastic views of the forever changing city skyline. We look forward to having you stay with us again. Regards, Matt O

Thanks for your question Claudia K! We have a couple of tram stops just outside the hotel, and I would recommend the Royal Children's Hospital stop as it is an accessible tram stop. It's about a minute walk from the hotel. Our smart cars seat 2 people, they're designed to be a small car to zip around the city in. If you were looking to hire something a bit bigger, we recommend Budget Hire Cars, and can assist guests in organising the right hire for them! Thanks again and we hope to see you at The Larwill Studio soon! Warm Regards, Madeline Duty Manager

The carparking is charged at a flat rate of $25 each day, so that is from check-in (2pm) until the pass needs to be returned (12pm the day of checkout). We do not offer different rates for day/night parking. However, the hospital car park does have hourly rates. I hope this answers your question, please feel free to contact me directly at (03)9032 91101 Warm Regards, Madeline Duty Manager

25 dollars is for 24 hours. Shorter term parking is available via meters on road outside.
