Sandwiched between Sandringham and Brighton on the beautiful Victoria coastline and conveniently located close to central Melbourne, the white sandy beaches and relaxing seaside vibes of Hampton have attracted sunshine-seeking holidaymakers since the mid-19th century. Hampton is better known for its shopping and eating these days – with over 50 cafes and bars lining the famous Hampton Street – but it’s still a great place to shack up for a beachside vacay, and a hip coastal hub from which to explore the best of the Melbourne sites and attractions. Whatever your inspiration, read on to discover our pick of the best hotels in Hampton – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Boutique Stays – Hampton Lookout, for stunning terrace views

Steps from the beach and Hampton Street, this bright, Scandi-meets-beach-chic two-by-one apartment is ideal for those looking for a fancy holiday home in Hampton. Fully kitted out with everything you need for a self-contained stay – such as laundry, a big TV with Foxtel, two off-street parking spots and an arrival hamper full of goodies – the icing on the cake is the massive private terrace, where you can kick back in the outdoor lounge and soak up the sun and bay views while cooking up a feast on the barbecue.

2. Anchorage Apartments Hampton, for modern design

A metal and glass architectural marvel rising above Hampton Street, the sleekly designed Anchorage Apartments Hampton contain an array of stunning one- and two-bedroom units with designer kitchens, outdoor balconies and plenty of awesome mod cons. It’s the perfect base for exploring Hampton on foot, as it’s super close to the train station, cafes and shops and an easy stroll to the beach; just give them a heads-up if you’re bringing your car, to nab yourself a free undercover parking spot.

3. Sandy Hill Serviced Apartments, for memorable extras

The height of self-contained luxury in neighbouring Sandringham, these Sandy Hill boutique apartments sleep up to nine and are elegantly appointed with designer furniture and balconies or terraces for al fresco chilling. The standout features aren’t the apartments – as great as they are – as much as the extras. These include the 25m (82ft) outdoor pool, sauna, spa and gym, and the in-house cafe-bar and convenience store – which, together, create a gloriously stylish little pocket of paradise.

5. Quest Brighton on the Bay, for central convenience
