Booked well in advance so got a good deal on the room; ended up with a king size room, which I was pleased with as I didn't have the squishy feeling that I'd had on a previous stay! This is a good mid-range hotel with mid-range prices. Especially enjoyed a bit of time at the rooftop pool on a warm... More

We stayed in an "Executive Room" facing Lonsdale St and would have preferred a quieter room if we had known about the construction noise from across the street and the early morning noisy trucks. Our room was quite small and dominated by a large office chair, large t.v. and blinking modems. Definitely set up for the business quests but when... More

Great place to stay for north part of CBD. Close to Greek precinct and Chinatown. Rooms OK for size and considering the price so worth it for a night or two only. Staff were friendly and service on front desk quick

The rooms at this hotel are actually lovely (despite the foyer and lifts looking quite tired) but I was left feeling completely let down by the following - my phone in my room did not work which meant a time consuming wait to order room service after a very busy day and a late finish; the room service was a...

The only positive is the location is the best for the theatre end of town . Next street is Chinatown so plenty to do and see . Lonsdale street has a lot offer the tourist . Forget the hotel if your looking for quality , very average and just comfortable . Price is ok for under 150 aud and it... More

Starting to show its age but can't fault its location! Very clean room with everything we needed and had best sleeps we'd had for ages. Breakfast great but dinner in the restaurant was over priced. The oysters were tiny!!! Great to have parking in the city, albeit at $20 a day. We'd stay again:)

A bad start to what was supposed to be an awesome weekend. We booked a premium king room with breakfast and asked for two single beds. Upon check in they asked for a $100 holding fee which wasn't anywhere on our booking, we came for the shopping so why would we want to give up $100 after this was sorted... More

I recently had a week at the motel whilst in Melbourne for social and work reasons. I have stayed a few times previously and largely go there as it is preferred hotel for work. Like all places you stay there are positives and negatives. The positives I find from the Grand Chancellor are the location to the city/restaurants/theatres/etc, the staff... More

Have stayed here before so was looking forward to another visit. But the room was shabby, curtains dirty, bathroom dirty, towels not changed each day, mattress had springs that pushed into me. Carpets stained and not clean and walls scuffed. A redeeming feature was the pool on the roof which was very nice. The food in the dining room for... More
