Although the RACV club is generally more expensive than other hotels it offers great consistent service, lots of dining options comfortable lounges and spacious comfortable rooms. Location is very convenient and parking and breakfast are included in the room price. The meals are generally quite good but not exceptional by any means and with so many options nearby it's hard...

Stayed in a 2room family suite (2 kids aged 12&8). Large rooms, great bathrooms and quality bathroom amenities. Service from valet to reception was helpful and friendly. With a great buffet breakfast included in the tariff I suspect this is some of the best value in Melbourne. Tram out the door, walk to great restaurants and a good gym in... More

My family and I have just celebrated our parent's 60th Wedding Anniversary at the hotel. There were 45 guests for a meal, as well as speeches and photographs to be taken etc... The room was wonderful, the food absolutely delicious and the staff could not have looked after us any better. The event went on for a full hour longer... More

My wife and I have stayed at the club several times as well as other RACV venues, and they have always been very good. However, recently we spent the night at the city club after dining in the restaurant (very good). We had a basic room, however, it is 5 star accommodation ($254 per night). Everything looks fine, walk in... More

The twin room is not one of those silly split kings, but a proper 2 x double beds. The walk in robe ensures the sleeping area is uncluttered & spacious. The bathroom is spacious with separate rain shower & bath. The aircon is responsive , & the rooms are oh so lovely & quiet. The fitness area & 6 lane... More

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.
