We attended a special event 'Circa, the Prince & The Champagne Dame presents: La Belle Époque' Stayed a single night at the Hotel and left most rested. The Prince has become our standed 'in-town' stay, and it rarely disappoints. x The Event: With food by Circa's Ashly Hicks and Champagne matched by Perrier-Jouët, the Champagne Dame's personable knowledge set us...

When we arrived went to Reception who told us park our car on level 3 of the next door public car park which is 10 dollars per day (we knew there was a charge). However getting the luggage from the car park to your room is an art in itself. Across the car park and through 2 doors and then... More

I stayed in the bridal suite for a wedding. The night manager on the Friday was so rude to me. Housekeeping did not do anything - they put rubbish behind the TV. The bridal party had to clean and vacuum for the bride and groom - even had to make the bed

My partner and I stayed at The Prince for one night in April to celebrate our anniversary. It is rated as one of Melbourne's top boutique hotels, and I completely understand why. The unsuspecting facade opens up into a trendy, minimalist chic foyer and as you walk towards to reception desk, you're overwhelmed by the size and charisma of the... More

The location of the hotel near to the beach and lots of restaurants is wonderful. The hotel is friendly and welcoming. Room were clean and large. Breakfast was tasty and better than average. The whole feel of the place is welcoming and comfortable

I need to start with the really good things first. The staff in all areas were amazing for the most part. The food was also really good. In particular Leroy who arranged for my mother to have her breakfast in her room due to not sleeping well. We were so grateful for his assistance. Our son was getting married later... More

Sadly this hotel is tired and in need of refurbishment. We stayed for 1 night over the grand prix weekend. Location can't be faulted. Staff were attentive and the foyer looks very cool. Sadly though the rooms weren't up to the same standard. No view, room was tiny for the price (parisian hotel type space) and the decor was drab.... More

My partner and I stayed at here for a mid week getaway as we were seeing a concert at the prince band room. I would highly recommend it! The rooms were very stylish and clean, with everything you need for a short break. It had a huge shower which is what I loved! The breakfast we had was to die... More

I spent 2 nights at The Prince Hotel and was very disappointed in the quality of acccomodation. The room was filthy. The shower obviously hadn't been cleaned for months .no lights worked in the bathroom . The ladder to hang towels is not at all satisfactory. A very stained dirty pillow laying on bed and a dirty looking blanket at... More
