We’re more than a hotel


We’re history. We’re heritage. We’re a home away from home.


At the Mail Exchange Hotel, our doors are open for families and friends to reminisce, curious minds to explore, busy travellers to rest – and everything in between.


A stroll down memory lane


Established on the land of Sir Robert Hoddle, first surveyor of Melbourne, the Mail Exchange Hotel is one of the city’s best storytellers.


Once Melbourne’s iconic Mail Centre, you’ll enjoy this heritage-listed building which has undergone many transformations over the past century. But thankfully, it’s still embedded with pieces from the past, including its original vault doors.


Our building has thrived throughout the years, bringing joy to people like you – generation after generation.

Where everybody belongs


Working professionals. Frequent travellers. Fanatic footy lovers. The Mail Exchange Hotel makes everyone feel at home.


With a 200-seat dining area, courtyard, function rooms, relaxing lounges, TAB facilities, free Wi-Fi and a modern bar, you’ll find so much to savour.


So if you’re looking for a classic pub rich with a history like no other – you’ll love our hotel.

So many reasons to visit


At the Mail Exchange Hotel, we try to make every moment matter.


Conveniently located in the heart of the CBD, opposite Southern Cross Station and close to Marvel Stadium, it’s the perfect place to meet your fellow fans before or after the game. Or if you’re looking for a quick pre-concert bite or a cold beer during a layover, you’re welcome to wander through our doors.


Celebrating a special occasion? Then you’ll love our flexible function spaces – perfect for business events, cocktail parties, birthdays and more!



Embedded with history.
