My winter destination this month was Melbourne, the capital city of the state of Victoria in Australia. It was a short break, so I made sure to stay somewhere central where I could make the most of it and have as many attractions as possible within walking distance. After researching where to stay, I found the perfect accommodation for me and my family - the Novotel on Collins. 

The rooms are beautifully designed to provide comfort with style. 

The products provided are of excellent quality made with Fair Trade. 

After an excellent night that we spent in our warm and super comfortable beds we woke up hungry. We had a hot shower and went to the breakfast room which was beyond our expectations. The hotel offers a variety of cold and hot dishes. Cakes, cereals, fresh juice, breads, hot drinks, and so much more. I could fill this page talking about our delicious breakfast, so I will let you to find out more when you book your stay at Novotel on Collins

After breakfast and before we left the hotel, I had to go to the gym and exercise. I loved how Novotel's facilites cater for all your needs. I did not have to skip my morning exercise.  

 From the reception you have this amazing view which is also a shopping centre. It could have not been more perfect. The stunning decoration captivates you.  

In the afternoon, after sightseeing, shopping and experiencing some of the most amazing places Melbourne has to offer, we returned to Novotel and relaxed at the indoor heated pool area.

A gorgeous view from the restaurant grabbed my attention, as I stared at the beautiful winter trees touching the window while my imagination drifted away. Novotel's restaurant also offers excellent meals at dinner time. 

An unforgettable stay.
