Only had one night here but a superb location and venue. Held a presentation in the Club and it was well received by all concerned. Rooms were spacious, modern and well equipped. Staff were friendly and overall would choose to stay here again.

Location is excellent and staff were very good. The food was well worth trying and the breakfast was excellent. Rooms were large and the bed of good quality. You don't neen public transport from here as you're in the centre.

We stayed as guests of members over the weekend. Simply everything about our stay here was awesome. Check in and out was quick, professional and informative. Our room was immaculate and expansive. The dressing room/store/utility room was great. All your belongings and luggage away and out of sight. While rooms are well air conditioned you can actually open a window... More

We have stayed here for a few nights, sometimes just for a night, or for a long period of time. However I have seen it in all the different lights, and it never fails to impress me. The food is amazing, especially the breakfast. The rooms are beautiful, and the service is the best it could be. Overall this is... More

Stayed at the RACV in Melbourne recently as a guest of a member. I found the room to be very roomy and comfortable, the large kingsize bed was actually very good. typically Australian hotels seem to believe that hard beds are preferred which is not the case . Fortunately this hotel knows better. The style of the room and the... More

This is the second time we've stayed and couldn't be more impressed. Staff are excellent and very flexible and the place is spotless. Buffet breakfast is a highlight and great gym/pool facilities. Right near tram stop, within the free travel zone, so easy to get around. Not far from a stack of melbourne's hidden bars and cafes. Relaxed atmosphere.

Would have been great, but... $275 a night included the overbearing, unbreathable paint fumes circulating through the establishment due to refurbishment. Myself and other guests suffered headaches and nausea. Although the staff are aware, money always trumps people's health.

We stayed for five nights as the club has a reciprocal arrangement with the RAC Club in London. We were really pleasantly surprised by the high standard. The building is only 10 years old and is relatively informal apart from the Member's Dining room where jacket is preferred. Bedrooms are large and very well appointed with large, comfortable beds and... More

Recently stayed here for a quick business trip and was pleasantly surprised. On arrival I was informed that I would be on the eighth floor executive level, very spacious room, seriously soft bed and enormous pillows just what the doctor ordered. From 5.30 to 7 Canapés and drinks was just the tonic required after a day travelling. Very well located... More
