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...

Whilst its a long walk - its is walking distance and well worth the effort. The Royce is situated beside Melbourne grammar and if you score a side room with a balcony its on a lovely quiet tree lined street. The entrance is remarkable and quite stunning. The staff friendly and helpful. We had a room with a balcony which...

My wife and I stayed at the Royce the day after our wedding. We were given a complimentary bottle of moet champagne which was much appreciated. The room was very nice.

It's great when a hotel lives up to its reputation before you've even set foot inside. Holly on reception was fabulous over the phone and went above and beyond to arrange a welcome basket to ensure a great stay for a friend. What an awesome place!

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
