The George Hotel 139 Cecil Street South Melbourne – {click for map}

The George Hotel South Melbourne

The George Hotel in sunny South Melbourne is situated directly opposite the South Melbourne Market, with two light rail services only metres from the door.

The first, the justifiably world famous 96, runs along Canterbury Road, from the CBD and Southern Cross Rail Station to sunny South Melbourne. 

Jump off at South Melbourne station, walk past the market and you're there. Three minutes, tops!  The second runs a similar path, only along Clarendon Street - it's the 112. (We know a song about that!)

Get off at Coventry Street, and we're a two minute amble down the road. We're close to the river and we're also an ideal launching point for sport at the Docklands or anywhere in the city – pre-footy drinks before a trip to the MCG are a speciality!
