St Jerome's - The Hotel


 is a brand new glamour camping sites in the heart of Melbourne CBD, on top of Melbourne Central Shopping Centre to be precise. The Hotel consist of 21 luxury canvas bell tents decorated in a world-class standards. The name come from Jerome Borazio, the man behind  Get Notorious, the iconic laneway bar called St Jerome's, The Workers Club, Ponyfish Island, The Kevin Club, Slice Girls and 1000 pound Bend.

When I finally saw the advertisement for St Jerome's I was sold, I know I have to try it and what a perfect coincidence that my husband birthday is close by so we booked a night at St Jerome's. This is my first time glamping so I was pretty excited.








There are three types of tents; The Luxe and The Luxe Plus. The Luxe is their 4m diameter tent with a double bed and The Luxe plus is their 5m diameter tent with queen bed and The Luxe Plus with a private outdoor area in front of your tent. Both facilities includes 24 hour reception, all around are free wi fi,  premium linen, throws, robes, towels, split system air conditioner. The restroom and shower are located outside your tent area and it is a share bathroom complete with amenities such as toothbrush, shower cap, soap, shampoo and hair dryer.









Like none others, they provided lots of complimentary food and obviously I love it. Check in is at 3pm then we get some welcoming tea from T2 with macarons, at our tent there is complimentary esky fully stock with water, beer, cider as well as some licorice and peanuts. After a little bit of rest and exploring, we can enjoy complimentary cocktail at The General Store then for dinner we received voucher for half a ribs at Naughty Nuri's (this could change anytime). As if we are not full yet, we get a voucher for a complimentary supper at Melbourne Central Lion Hotel with an options of chicken wings, pizza, nachos and more. Another nice treats come in right before bed time was the custom made limited edition dessert from Gelato Messina delivered to my tent accompanied by sleeptime T2 tea. Then when I finally wake up, we received a gourmet breakfast box complete with a decent cup of coffee in front of my tent. 










St Jerome's have their own private Sauna, cozy Indoor common room with heater/air conditioner, Bar named The General Store but they also give a complimentary bowling at Strike Bowling, Ipad loaded with various movies and of course if you still got bored you have the whole Melbourne Central mall to venture.









When I finally checked out at 11am, I was left feeling so happy and would love to repeat the experience. Even though there are a couple of downside such as shared toilets and bugs on the toilets but that's glamping for you and the internet was down the whole time we were there and that was a major disappointment for a luxurious pricey hotel located in the middle of the city. The service also needed an improvement, we can text the staff for any questions or request but the reply takes so long and sometimes no reply at all. But it doesn't distract me from the beautiful view of the city whether day or night. This place has a nice wow effect for a special occasion, that I can't deny.
