We chose to stay in 'The Retreat' to make the most of a special offer. Rooms are quiet, spacious, super comfortable bed, great selection of pillows. Soft fluffy towels. Separate shower, a bath for luxuriating in with appropriate bath salts provided, a real treat when you live rurally. Professional and friendly butler service, nothing was too much trouble. Evening drinks... More

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 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
