3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was smaller than expected and an odd shape. There was very little space with only one place to put a suitcase. I had to lay my suit bag out on the floor to take my clothes out and it took up nearly the entire floor space. Bathroom was nice with separate bath and shower and clean. It was too... More

The Royce has a boutique charm that I really liked. It's a bit cheaper than an equivalent city hotel and you get to escape to beautiful St.Kilda boulevard after wandering around the city. Our room was very well sized for the cheapest room, huge comfy bed and suitably furnished. And if you like plenty and large mirrors in your room,... More

I've had the pleasure of staying multiple times at this super hotel for business trips. The hotel has a charm of yesteryear, which has been sadly lost in many other hotel properties of a similar vintage. The Royce is well located on St. Kilda Road for easy access to taxi cabs into town and the surrounding suburbs. Rooms are clean,... More

We took a balcony room here for one evening, celebrating our anniversary with an afternoon in the city to see Les Mis, and then a short trip from the Royce to Chapel Street for a Spanish dinner. As someone who travels to many hotels for work, it was nice to stay somewhere just that bit out of the cbd, and... More

I stayed in room 101 for 1 night, and although it was a short stint, I felt quite at home. The rooms are tastefully appointed and decorated, and the bed is quite comfortable as a I woke up incredibly refreshed. I ate lunch and dinner at Dish, and the fare is quite good. I actually went out of my way... More

We stayed here back in January 2014. It was the weekend of the semi final for the Australian Open. We had tickets for the tennis which we had purchased months prior so I had also booked the Royce a long time in advance. The hotel is in a good location with a really nice feel about it. It's positioned on... More

The lady with the purple hair could not have been more uninterested in helping if she had tried and a smile would have not gone astray either! Total difference from the the level of service we received from the chap we checked in with. A real let down after the reviews I received myself.

When I checked into my room, the lights did not work. so I had to change rooms (9PM). The only room available was one that was taken off the system, because the heater did not work. so I had no key, and no heater. I later got a key and a portable heater. They asked me to change rooms again... More

When you trravel with work, I find you tend to get a little picky. The Royce, like other top end hotels in Melbourne, is well appointed with a very comfortable bed (which is reallly all that matters in the end!!). However, being smaller, it feels a little more personal than the others. One thing I really appreciate is the real... More

I was very pleased with my stay at The Royce. I was not expecting such a great place but I will definitely be staying there the next time I'm in Melbourne. Great rates for the service and accommodation.
