I always come to the Royce for business and it always exceeds my expectations. The staff are friendly, the rooms beautiful, comfortable and squeaky clean and the restaurant "dish" is totally amazing. The building is beautiful and full of history. I would give this place a 10/10 if I could!

What a surprise find even for Melbourne residents. Customer service at the Royce was fantastic, they couldn't do enough for you. Great location, rooms modern and spacious. We were away for a celebration that was acknowledged by all. Will recommend the Royce to anyone and will be back for another weekend away for sure.

Such an underrated hotel, my fiancé and I have been staying at the Royce for years, our last and most recent stays were a while apart but everything was how we remembered and why we love the Royce. We will be back at the next opportunity

Comfortable bed, quiet room, good location off st kilda road. Bathroom got wet despite closing shower door when showering. Bathroom very small. Room probably in need of an update. Mini bar expensive and no complimentary water.

Friendly staff and beautiful boutique hotel. Not sure why the survey is asking me about how I found their porter service as I didn't have any porter service. Nice rooms and good staff. I have stayed here once in 2009 and came back as I like the decor in the foyer and nice rooms.

Probably one of the best value for money hotels, just outside the cbd. Location wise, keep in mind that you need to travel to get into town - The tram stop is literally out the front which makes it easier to get in takes all of 10mins. If you walk, it takes about half an hour, but it's a pretty... More

Didn't find the friendly welcome that others have spoken about. But was very grateful for the offer to take my bag upstairs. The room was lovely, evening meal was beautiful, staff very nice and attentive, the only downer being for the many patrons talking too loudly on mobile phones, but that is a problem everywhere, not the fault of the...

Lovely hotel and received a warm welcome and complimentary bottle of wine. Only stayed 2 nights but would definitely stay at the hotel again. Location very convenient close to city and trams so easy to get around when not having a car with you.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience Melbourne's designer boutique hotel, perfectly located on St.Kilda Road next to the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens. The CBD, Southbank precinct, Melbourne's art and theatre district and the fashionable Chapel Street are all within a short tram ride away. The hotel features a lounge bar, award winning restaurant, private outdoor courtyard, business area and meeting facilities. Once renowned as Australia's most glamorous automobile showroom in the 1920s, the Royce housed prestige vehicles such as the Rolls Royce. While the exterior of the historical building retains its classical features, the architects and designers have redesigned a modern and chic interior to suit the discerning traveller. They have depicted a unique accommodation experience by creating a hotel that is distinctively different from any other. ... more   less
