One of the cheaper hotels we had looked at, but when we got there we knew we got a great deal. The hotel is beautiful and elegant and the rooms modern and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. I will definitely be returning and telling everyone to visit!

WIFI which should have a free allocation was $20 for 1GB expiring every 24hrs I stayed for a week and soon got sick of the same bacon and scrambled egg buffet every morning, it needs some variety. The toilet was in the shower cubicle and if you're travelling with another person I don't think you want a stinky shower just...

We regularly stay at the Royce and look forward to it each time. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean and the staff are excellent. The location is very good for car or tram access in most directions. The finest feature however is Dish, the onsite restaurant. The food is top quality with an enticing menu, served with care and...

Had a lovely stay at the Royce and the staff were very nice. However, the tv in our room didn't work well and we were turned away from the restaurant because it was too full- understandably, but you would think that guests of the hotel would be first priority for dining. The food was pretty pricey where the food itself...

I have stayed here a few times now and will make this my home when I am in Melbourne. I also put my family up when they come to Victoria to visit. The rooms are exceptional and the service equally so. The Dish and The Amber Room give a great intimacy that you lack in many hotels.

For over 15 years whenever my wife and I visit Melbourne we stay at the Royce. The hotel has grown over the years but still has that lovely intimate feel good boutique Hotels have. Its proximity to the Tan for running / walking and closeness to the city without the crowds the Royce is a great place to stay.

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
