Our host welcomed us on arrival and took us through the check in process, including Covid requirements, very quickly and efficiently. Our room was incredibly comfortable and the triple glazing on the windows stopped any noise from penetrating. With the full kitchen in the room you could easily make this a base if you were visiting Melbourne. It's in a good position and public transport is easily accessible. The bedroom was up a small flight of stairs and the bed was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom included the usual toiletries and included a bath with shower over the top.

We had a 3 night stay in a lovely one bed apartment. The fully equipped kitchen was very handy and the bed was extremely comfortable. Hotel is in a great location, short walking distance to food, shops and public transport. The hotel manager was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Such a stunning beautiful building. Excellent, friendly service from the General Manager, Denis, and front desk staff from the moment we arrived to the time we checked out. This hotel is a must to visit and stay. We stayed 2 nights in a beautiful 2 bedroom loft style apartment with the convenience of a kitchen and sitting room. We had a tour of the building with Denis and were impressed by the beautiful corridors, main staircase, indoor/outdoor pool, spa, bbq area, library and just the magnificance of such an imposing beautiful building. It's all about the experience and this hotel does not disappoint. We also enjoyed dinner at the Gaynard Indian Restaurant independently owned in the Grand Hotel building. Best Indian cuisine we have ever eaten and we were well looked after.
