Lovely staff, very friendly, very clean, very well presented, very comfortable beds. Genuinely nothing bad to say at all. I was only there for a night so I can't speak to the concierge or the porter or any of the restaurants or bars, but I liked the menu and would have ordered from them if not for an occasion. The...

I stay here often when traveling for work, it's on the outskirts of city so not near night life or the Melbourne vibe. Not a lot near by. The hotel is nice and clean, rooms are big, bathrooms are nice. The toiletries nice. The only gripe is their room service is terrible. Very expensive for what you get, last week...

The Royce is always our place to stay in Melbourne. Ticks all the boxes for us. Great location, clean and comfortable, breakfast choices, friendly staff, love the walk out balcony rooms looking toward the city over tree tops.

We loved staying at The Royce (for the first time ever) and will definitely stay again. I have recommended the hotel to many friends and colleagues, if they visit Melbourne. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in, the room was spotless, loved the foyer décor and the ambience of the hotel. Excellent value for...

We were great by friendly staff and were then directed to a big clean room with a beautiful bathroom. Then on to dinner at Dish which was delicious . The location is very convenient but just away from the hustle and bustle. We will definitely be back again.

Got a Christmas voucher for this hotel which was definitely value for money. Room spacious and clean but the walls are thin, check in friendly, received drink vouchers and 10% off if having dinner in restaurant, bar needs a bit of updating as not very inviting interior but overall ok if having one drink before heading out. Breakfast was ok...

Booked through hotels.com last minute for a three night stay over the long weekend. We had a ground floor room which was clean, modern and comfortable. Our booking had a complementary breakfast each morning which we made use of and were impressed with the food selection and coffee. The hotel is situated a 15 minute walk to the CBD and...

I try to stay at the Royce on business trips as I love its old style charm, restaurant and chocolate treats on my bed on arrival. This time was prior to Easter and they left a feast of chocolate eggs which was very welcoming. Every room seems to be different and this time I was upgraded to a room with...

This would have been the perfect stay if only the air-con units were maintained and/or replaced. Our three night stay ended up in three different rooms, if the staff knew about non working air-con units why on earth do they still put guests in them, they roar very loud all night (even on low fan ) with very little or...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience Melbourne's designer boutique hotel, perfectly located on St.Kilda Road next to the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens. The CBD, Southbank precinct, Melbourne's art and theatre district and the fashionable Chapel Street are all within a short tram ride away. The hotel features a lounge bar, award winning restaurant, private outdoor courtyard, business area and meeting facilities. Once renowned as Australia's most glamorous automobile showroom in the 1920s, the Royce housed prestige vehicles such as the Rolls Royce. While the exterior of the historical building retains its classical features, the architects and designers have redesigned a modern and chic interior to suit the discerning traveller. They have depicted a unique accommodation experience by creating a hotel that is distinctively different from any other. ... more   less
