I love eating here as the club is always willing to accommodate your dietary needs and that of your family. My partner is extremely health conscious and struggled to find something he really wanted and they were able to modify meals without issues. Kids were also able to get smaller portions of regular meals which was also great!

The retreat is so amazing but I just discovered that it gets even better. There is a suite on the retreat level and it is luxurious. The is a tv above the bath, a shower which comes in all directions and the comfiest bed ever! Not to mention a lounge room with a little indoor/outdoor courtyard balcony. On the retreat... More

I stayed for one night on a business trip with a member. The room was large with a very big bathroom and walk in wardrobe. The windows opened if you like fresh air or you could use the aircon. Buffet breakfast was included in the rate and was first class.

Stayed for 5 nights during the Australian Open tennis. Very convenient for central Melbourne. Room very spacious and good bathroom with nice toiletries. Large pool and gym. Breakfast excellent and good value to eat in hotel at other times. Also quiet in room despite central location.

We stayed over the Christmas period and was really impressed with the size of the rooms as they were really spacious and the facilities such as the upstairs restaurant and gym. We also had breakfast included in the rate which made it competitive. We will definitely be staying here again.

Had a brief lunch there today with my parents. The food was excellent and prompt. Drinks also arrived very quickly and the service was very friendly. They joined the club a few years ago and were very keen to show me around what the club had to offer. The club seems like a great place to take clients or people... More

Stayed there overnight recently for a dinner. The club is very friendly and efficient and almost quaint at times. The rooms are very large and well proportioned and the amenities first class. The dinner was fine, food was good and service acceptable. Breakfast was again good without being terrific although the service left a little to be desired. I do... More
