With the following self assessment "The Royce Hotel is recognised as one of Melbourne’s finest designer five star boutique hotels. With its 100 stylish rooms and suites, award winning dish restaurant and chic bar, the amberoom, the Royce offers a unique experience for the discerning traveller' we were expecting something very special. Not so, we were greeted by a non... More

Arriving at the hotel was a great dissapointment, based on the pictures I had seen on-line. The rooms, however were quite nice and the common areas basic but pleasant. The facilities were those of an upscale roadside inn (gym is closet-size, common areas non-functional) but unfortunatley the staff was too inexperienced to provide a pleasant stay. As long as you...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Tried the majority of the services the hotel provides so here are our experiences of the services we received. Negatives: - upon arrival (Friday 20th March) greeted by chubby short girl at reception who seemed stressed or something she was very short with me when I asked if we could check in early said 'no'...

Stayed here before and it was ok. Got stuck in room 224. The room that time forgot. One of a handful of things from the 70s that has survived without renovation. Awful. Tired. Noisy facing straight onto st kilda road. Awful old bathroom. Dirty old carpet. Worth ibis budget prices. Not 4 or 5 star stay. Not going back. Ever.

We recently stayed at the Royce Hotel on Grand Prix weekend. The hotel is in a great location, rooms are clean, breakfast was great, the welcome drink was much appreciated, as was the 10% discount at the hotel restaurant - The Dish. If the hotel was 4 or even 4.5 star, I would have no issues. These are my concerns:... More

I have stayed at the Royce a few times and always enjoyed my stay. Don't think I've had an entry level room before. The room is fine, but the bathroom - goodness me! Why is the toilet in the shower room?? Unhygienic and a health hazard as a trip to the toilet becomes hazardous once the shower has been used.

A great hotel however the check in staff didn't even acknowledge me as a returning guest. No welcome back to the Royce sir Room was tidy and clean but no welcome card from the manager. These are the little things that make the Royce five stars. Breakfast was pleasant.

I loved our stay, we were welcomed warmly and nothing was too much to ask. We will be back! We were there for a wedding, which was put on beautiful. I recommend the Royce Hotel to anyone who is looking for a hotel in Melbourne and want to be treated with care and respect.

Purchased a two night Luxury Escape deal as we hadn't stayed in that area before and found it a very nice spot to look around the area on foot. Clean rooms, staff friendly and attentive. Close to Shrine and Botanical gardens which we visited one day. Breakfast Buffet was very nice. We had the bottom floor room and thought it... More

We had a lovely package including buffet breakfast on a city break deal. The hotel is beautiful inside and lovely and quiet. Nice beds, rooms and bathrooms, nothing at all to complain about. From outside the hotel you can get a tram right up to the city. We are hoping to return some time.
