Very quiet rooms. excellent service and a great hub for country people to catch up with each other in the big city - especially when the footy, cricket or tennis is on! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

I spent two nights in Melbourne on business and the hotel is a great location for walking around the CBD. he hotel is fine but nothing special. The breakfast restaurant though was quite ordinary. The room was quiet and clean and the bed very comfortable.

Rooms are very comfortable, neat and spotless. All of the restaurants serve excellent food. From the casual in the Bistro and Conservatory to tapas in the wine bar and formal in the Members Dining Room. Pricing is very good for food and drinks. Great facilities for members, pool and gym are outstanding.

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...

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
