Stayed 2 nights on 13th floor. Very clean and quiet. Staff very nice and accommodating. Only very small gripe. TV in gym needs to be moved so it can be seen by those exercising. Spent an hour a night on treadmills looking at a blank wall. Small whinge I know. Cant fault thus place otherwise.

I had no issues with the hotel itself, it was in a fairly good location, the rooms were huge and all very clean however the service really let the hotel down. We arrived at the hotel a few hours early, expecting not to be able to check in I requested we leave our bags. We were told that they would... More

The Encore restaurant at this hotel serves really great food. BUT, it's noisy from the bar area,the staff are very friendly but there is not enough of them, resulting in a long wait for drinks and food. The location is excellent, it's warm and the tables look inviting, albeit a little crammed in.

I thought it was a great hotel. Friendly staff, 24/7 kitchen, roof top pool, yummy breakfast. For what you pay what more can you ask for? Dear "annoyed" customers. Stop complaining. Your extremely low range triple digits that you paid per night doesn't allow you the luxury of complaints. I'll stay at Grand again anytime of the year.

Stayed for a weekend in Melbourne. The hotel is very central for all the theatres and shows. I was attending a show at the Royal Exhibition Centre and it was a short walk. Also very close to China Town. I booked a double room but had when it got to the room it was quite big with a king size... More

I have just returned from a short stay with my two granddaughters. We had a wonderful time, thanks to the interested and efficient staff (particularly Yen and Michael), the great location and the very comfortable room. Breakfast was also very good, with lots of choice including many child-friendly options. With Chinatown at the back door and the double decker bus... More

I booked this hotel via Wotif ... only because I have friends who live in the apartment building next door. No assistance with bags. Check in was reasonably efficient Room was tired, musty and in need of total renovation. More a 2 star property I certainly would not waste my time or money staying here again.

We had a fantastic room, great view and the bed was amazingly comfortable. We have a waterbed so it is difficult for us to get used to a regular bed, but this bed was wonderful. We stayed 4 nights for our anniversary. A romantic room for a couple. The restaurant was very very good and their Pannacotta was devine. Before... More

What started out as a mistaken booking turned out fantastic. Arrival and booking in was great, professional and efficient. Our room whilst smallish, was well appointed, king bed, bath, desk etc, a small private balcony and all that we needed. The staff were fantastic, very friendly, happy hour in the restaurant each weekday evening, and a great menu. We ate... More

My sister and I stayed here on the 22/06/14 as we were staying over night to see the theater production of Les Miserables.I had booked online for the chancellor room and B&B. It was about 20 minutes away from the airport which cost us about $50.00 inc. toll prices. We arrived before our room was ready, so we filled in... More
