Five-star grandeur in the heart of the city

Grandeur is the name of the game at the InterContinental Melbourne, sitting pretty on Collins Street in the CBD. From the striking 1890’s neo-gothic façade to the sophisticated guest rooms complete with marble bathrooms, this hotel exudes luxury at every turn. The indoor pool boasts unmatched city views, but it’s the food and drink offerings that shine brightest. Sit under the soaring arches of the atrium at the Alluvial restaurant and enjoy dishes made from local produce (matched with an impressive selection of Australian wines, of course) or treat yourself to freshly baked buttermilk scones at Mrs D’ebros High Tea.

Time Out tip: Dessert isn’t a question at the Alluvial. The restaurant’s signature dish is a hollow Belgian chocolate sphere, which is served via a theatrical reveal (hint: it involves hot caramel sauce poured over the sphere).

The dairy free option was less than satisfactory for the price. The 3 tiers included sandwiches made with gluten free bread (requested dairy free...), 3 small savoury objects and a plate of cut up fruit.

The buffet dessert table had a couple of dairy free options, macarons, marshmallows, and more fruit...

The staff were attentive and friendly.

The price is not $55 as suggested. We were told at the start that the first glass of champagne is included, they neglected to say that it was included for an extra $20!

Inadequate for dairy free.
