Notel: An Urban Glamper’s Paradise

Melbourne’s rooftops have seen some quirky updates in recent years, but none quite as distinctive as Notel.

Part boutique hotel, part caravan park, Notel combines the luxury of a hotel with the adventure of a full outdoor experience. Melbourne – born entrepreneur, James Fry is the brains and passion behind this exciting new stay. Fry wanted to do something fun with the top floor of his multi-storey car park on coveted Flinders Lane.

We recently teamed up with Notel to launch our Spring Summer 17 Collection. To celebrate the launch of our new collection, inspired by the wondering world, we’re giving customers the chance to win an exclusive rooftop stay at Notel. But wait, there’s more! 10 lucky runners up could win a $200 voucher to spend with yours truly.

As part of this exciting collaboration, we sat down with Notel’s founder, James Fry, to get the inside scoop on Melbourne’s newest boutique accommodation.

FC: How did you come up with the concept of a high-end trailer park?

JF: Two years in the making, I had a million ideas of what I wanted to do with the three story multi-level car-park.  I tossed around rooftop cinemas, restaurants and even a pool, but I wanted something totally different.

FC: Where are the airstreams sourced from?

JF: The airstreams were sourced from the West Coast of The United States.

FC: How would you describe the décor of the airstreams?

JF: The airstream interiors are designed by Melbourne-based architects Edwards Moore. We set out to create a spacious stay with a retro aesthetic. The airstreams boast white lights, clean, curved lines and pink cushions which we feel add to this retro vibe.

FC: ‘Glamping’ offers the experience of camping with the creature comforts of a hotel, how do you achieve this?

JF: Our airstreams offer the ultimate urban camping experience including a queen size bed with bamboo sheets, a complimentary mini bar featuring Paul Louis bubbles, free parking and our ‘airstream with benefits’ boast a private outdoor spar with views of the city.

FC: Where would you recommend your guests go for Breakfast and Dinner during their luxury stay at Notel?

JF: Flinders Lane is home to some of Melbourne’s most exclusive dining experiences. Each airstream offers an exclusive dining guide (conveniently accessible via Ipad) to Melbourne’s best cafes, restaurants and bars – from Mamasita to Chin Chin, there’s something for everyone.
