I stayed here for one night on business. The check-in staff were friendly and efficient. My room was very good and ticked most of the boxes - comfortable bed, really well stocked tea and coffee facilities including a pod coffee maker, and plenty of space in the room. I wasn't feeling well, so opted for room service and an early...

The hotel was clean & the rooms we had were great. My friend had booked a wedding package through where she held her reception. I was surprised on arrival that the staff member didn't mention anything to the bride to be about her wedding the following day so asked staff at desk when she wasn't around about that. They said...

Hi tacross Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Royce Hotel Melbourne. All couples who host their wedding reception at the hotel receive a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine in their room upon arrival. We hosted an in-house wedding on the night of Sat 19 Nov and they definitely received a bottle of sparkling wine....

This is my second time to The Royce and I have enjoyed it just as much second time around. In room on the side street this time so very quiet. Bed is comfortable firm but not too firm. Plenty of room storage with a lovely big window looking out to Melbourne Boys Grammar. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Hotel of choice when staying in the City. Location and ground floor accomodation a preference. Executive Suite was spacious, including spa bath. Breakfast included was a bonus and excellent variety. Car parking at any time of the evening/early am a bonus. We will return in the near future.

This hotel is not far from the CBD, tram stop nearby. An old world hotel that has been modernised. The rooms are beautifully appointed. The restaurant has delicious meals. Staff very friendly and helpful. We always enjoy staying there.

This hotel is too noisy for me. If you look up at the ceiling in reception, the first thing you see is dusty dirty air vents. For me a good hotel is all about attention to detail. We stayed in a suite that is poorly designed and dangerous. Where you step down from the bedroom to lounge and step up...

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
