Footscray has come a long way, baby. The gentrification of this creative, multicultural hub may be causing friction, but the Plough Hotel is part of the solution, not the problem. Part restaurant, part bar, part hotel, this multitasking space was established way back in 1868, but came back on the scene after a heritage-friendly refurbishment in 2013. Above the restaurant and bar, 11 boutique rooms with private en-suite bathrooms provide a minimalist yet comfortable space for guests to retreat to. With rooms available from $120 per night, this could just be one of Melbourne’s best accommodation deals.
Time Out tip: Known for serving some of the best steaks in the west, guests can head downstairs to the Plough Hotel restaurant to savour grass fed beef at its finest. Vegetarians are well taken care of too, with plenty of meat-free options on the menu and vegan cheese available on all pizzas.
