“Good location, nice facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Stayed for 4 nights during the spring racing carnival in a one bedroom apartment. Considering the time of the year, the room rate was good. Location is good, just off Toorak Road and next to the Sth Yarra train station (although you cannot hear the trains). Was a construction site next door which meant that road was often closed and you couldn't walk on paths. The rooms were self-contained with a full kitchen (incl oven, stove top, dishwasher), laundry facilities and a good sized bathroom. I agree with other reviews, the beds were a little uncomfortable, however you don't feel like you need to raise this to have a layer removed? I am not sure why the hotel would think the layer they have on it is comfortable, anyway. The spa was good. I would recommend this place to stay again, particularly in view of the location and facilities nearby

Room Tip: back side away from station

Just had our first stay @ Punthill South Yarra Grand and highly recommend it as the staff, both housekeeping and front office were friendly yet very efficient and prompt in responding to our requests, and the apartments were comfortable and had everything we needed.
Good spot and great staff.

We stayed last weekend for two nights for a hens weekend.
The rooms were fantastic value! We booked 2 x 2bdrm apartments, whilst they are compact (small bathrooms and the single beds quite small) they are nicely appointed, modern and clean. Can't really go past the value really this place was cheap compared to Quest and other apartments!
Had the feel of a boutique hotel with refreshments at the front counter and the location is PERFECT with only a short walk to chapel st.
Now the best part of our stay, which was unexpected was the staff! Both Paul and Adrian made our stay just that little bit more memorable! They are charming, welcoming and very funny! They made us feel like friends and could not be more accomodating. I know that many of the girls said they would stay again & we look forward to staying again in the future!

I have spent the past 10 days at the apartments and will run out of superlatives in describing my stay. The apartments themselves are lovely, but the staff are definitely this hotel's best asset. They are amazing. Paul and Adrian at reception are a delight and made me and my four year old grand-daughter feel so welcome. She was so enamoured with them that she would ask to go down and see her new friends at every opportunity. Their friendliness is obviously infectious -everyone we met was so nice. The housekeeping staff are meticulous and also could not do enough to make our stay a pleasant one.
The apartments are modern, clean and well appointed. I will definitely return and would highly recommend this hotel

Just spent three weeks at the apartments and cannot express how kind and helpful the managers (Adrain and Paul) were. After a long flight from the UK they made us extremly welcome. They were informative, helpful and very caring in momemts of home sickness (we are to be away from home for 6 months). Thank you for making our stay in Melbourne so enjoyable.We would also like to add that the location and the apartment were fabolous!.

If the bed is right, all is well with the world! Although we have stayed in larger apartments, all the others had king size beds of steel. This one was so comfortable I did not have the usual restless first night.
Compact but not closed in. Good size balcony to have morning cuppa in the sun. Close to train and tram without any noise thanks to double glazed windows. Very clean and modern. Enjoyed 5 nights.
