Stayed at this place recently with my friends and was really surprised at the size of the place and level of service. I had always thought of RACV as the break-down cars, insurance, etc, but was pleasantly surprised to find out they are also a major hotel player. (as good as the Hyatt, Westin, Sofitel, Sheraton of which I have... More

I have visited the RACV City Club many times and all is very good except the first floor bistro. The service is patchy in many ways (like you may or may not get the bill after asking for it, or a shared side salad arrives with no serving spoon). I get the impression that the waiting staff are poorly selected... More

The RACV City Club in Melbourne offers excellent rooms, superior exercise facilities (my favorite is the swimming pool), terrific eating choices, and the best location in Melbourne's center city. Service is excellent, the staff is helpful whether serving food, offering advice, or cleaning guest rooms. Having visited private clubs in many cities/countries, for me the RACV's club is at the...

Great facilities and a fantastic hotel. Stayed several times always had a great experience! Staff are friendly and helpful. The concierge team were especially helpful! Very easy to cruise into Melbourne CBD.

We stayed at the RACV, Reteat level for two days (rm 811). It was most impressive. Bathroom was stunning. We have stayed on the lower floors on a number of occasions (which has always been great) but level 8 is beautiful, great ambience from the moment you step into foyer. It is only for the guests staying on that level.... More

We have just spent two nights in at the club to start the school holidays ! We stayed on the 8th Floor, in the retreat, a new experience for us ! It was worth the extra cost with the butlers pantry and the canapes each night a great bonus ! I wish the club had a few more school holiday... More

It's been awhile since my wife and I lodged here for a weekend. Circumstances were such that my wife was coming in from Hobart and I was coming down from the Murray River on a Sunday and we needn't be home until Tuesday. When I phoned to make a booking I was informed that there was a 'special' on which... More

We attended a sporting club function /luncheon for 400 people on the 17th level. The main course ( alternate placement ) was (1) pan fried chicken supreme and (2 ) herb crusted lamb rump followed by glazed lemon tart. The meal was perfect and the service could not be faulted. Highly recommend.

Very helpful front office staff even though my room was cancell due to my mistake. The room is big and very clean. It is very near to the tram line and the stop is less then 20 meters away. Friendly coffee house staff make me feel like home. I will come back to this hotel on the next trip. Thank... More

My husband had stayed at the RACV City Club (he's the member) previously, but this was the first time we've stayed there as a family (2 adults + one 8yo). The central city location is the best part about the Club, easy walking distance to the Burke St Mall, trams virtually at the front door, tourist shuttle bus around the... More
