SINCE blogging about being Spoilt on a grand Melbourne holiday (Medina Grand review) and asking Did you know fish eat pumpkin?, there’s been a lot of interest from you, our readers. So, as a way for you to experience exactly what it’s like to live like princesses (or princes), we’ve decided to allow one lucky reader to live like we did.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, let me refresh your memory. Last week the O’Briens went to Melbourne and indulged in three nights’ accommodation in a stunning room at the Medina Grand in Melbourne. This was our room.
You can visit the review post to see how that room ended up!
There are a few Medina options in Melbourne, but the Medina Grand suited us because it was an easy walk to the Melbourne Aquarium (or pram ride, for Ella and Holly), simple trek home from the MCG for The Bloke in The Shed (or more like a tail-between-his-legs waddle after the Pies’ loss) and quick tram ride to Harbour Town (the highlight for Ella – the tram, not the shopping). Although, if we hadn’t missed the stop, we might have shopped at the new DFO South Wharf instead. But anyway…
And did I mention pancakes?
What made our holiday was the hotel. There is nothing better after a hard day slogging it out at the shops, than coming “home’’ to comfort. You can read the full review at Spoilt on a grand Melbourne holiday. And Ella hasn’t stopped talking about her big bed
or that big box of toys.
The thing that appealed to us about Medina is it’s family friendly – just check out its Facebook page MumSpace. It’s an online mother’s group that Medina created to thank one of its most valued group of guests. Yes, you guessed it, us mamas. The group has been up and running for a year now (it just celebrated its first anniversary) and has more than 10,000 fans!
So, just for a minute, picture yourself here:
Or even here.
Well, dream no more. You can have a chance at living it.
