Ovolo Laneways – Melbourne
Melbourne is an awesome city to explore. There are so many beautiful landscapes that are worth visiting, the quality of food in restaurants is incredible, the people are very friendly and I bet you’ll fall heads over heels with its amazing coffee culture. And, as per The Economist, Melbourne is one of the most liveable cities. So, if you are planning to stay in Melbourne, make sure you choose Ovolo Laneways – not because of the free Italian beer or the Apple TV, but because you are allowed to keep your pet by your side during your stay in the hotel.
Inspired by Melbourne’s fine street art, the hotel offers an effortless living in a typical art gallery setting. Nestled in the heart of Little Bourke Street, this beautiful property has a lot to offer to its guests. The neighborhood doesn’t really boast of any landmark attraction, but no one has been able to resist the good atmosphere, decent weather, a lovely, bustling promenade down the street and the Chinatown located on the eastern end of Little Bourke Street.

Bannisters Port Stephens – New South Wales
When people hear New South Wales, most of them think of Sydney, but they often fail to grasp that Sydney is not the only place worth visiting. Soldiers Point is a picturesque neighborhood that looks like as if it came right out of a beautiful piece of art.
