Highs & Lows

  • The Airstreams. Cute reno and fun design features.

  • The iPad. An awesome touch - netflix, podcasts, tunes - all you need.

  • The big-headed shower. For a ‘glamping’ situation, this is fannnncy.

  • The hotel key app. Just download an app on to your phone, and bang, use that to let yourself on to the rooftop. Smart, efficient and super fun.

  • The location. We love Melbourne’s laneways, but this is not necessarily the prettiest part of Flinders Lane.

  • The vibe (or lack of one). The addition of a few fairy lights and some friendly tunes could go a long way.
