The Blackman demonstrated to be a winner in all ranges. From the welcome and water at Reception on a really hot day to room amenities. The staff are more than willing to go the extra mile, the rooms are exquisite, comfortable, roomy and cutting edge. Genuinely unwinding. The hotel is extraordinary, we delighted in each perspective of our stay. It is a little walk out of town, but right outside is a tram stop but can walk to the CBD and the St Kilda, both a nice stroll away.
