We stayed in a Deluxe Room (the base level) on Level 8-the Retreat last weekend. What a great place. We are RACV Club members-so stay regularly--but this is a step above the already high quality we expect from the club.
You enter form the card activated lift into a plush lounge area with comfy chairs and tables and the pantry area where coffee machine, snacks, drinks are at your fingertips. We were served drinks and canapes pre dinner--included in the cost, and in the morning wandered down to the pantry and brought back our breakfast in bed!! You can go downstairs for the cooked breakfast--but we elected to sleep in and help ourselves to the cereal/fruit/pastries in the pantry.
The room was beautifully furnished and decorated in dark tones. A lovely bathroom with bath and seperate shower and a dressing room that opens into the bathroom-great idea. The massive bed was comfy and the pillows amazing-I actually found out who supplies the pillows and bought some for myself!
I dont know what the other grades of room are like-but if ours was anything to go by-they would be as good-I know some have balconys and some have a garden area--maybe we will lash out for that one day!
The cost for the entry level room in The Retreat is not a great deal more than a standard room--so I would be happy to pay the extra and have the convience a private lounge and snacks etc if you were spending time at your accomodation.
Well worth checking this out.

We visited Melbourne for an important function and decided to stay in the accommodation facilities of the Club. Bookings must be arranged by an RACV Club member.
The whole experience was like a 5 star hotel. Checkin was smooth and efficient and our bags were delivered to our room before we had completed our checkin formalities.
Our King bed room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the bed a delight for sound sleep and the shower hot. My wife enjoyed the full size bath. Cable Internet is included and Wifi available in the lobby and second floor.
The package included a full breakfast and had a wide range of choices.
The price was excellent value for a central CBD location.

My family and I stay here whenever we want a couple of days in the city to shop/see concerts/dine out. The service is fantastic throughout the hotel. Staff are all professional, knowledgable and welcoming - nothing is too much trouble. We generally visit mid-week, and always enjoy dinner in the bistro, particularly burger and Italian night. Recently we loved the Thai buffet on offer. The breakfast buffet is also fantastic. The rooms themselves are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The bathrooms in particular feel very classy and sophisticated and the large mirror is great for getting ready before a night out. Location is also a highlight, as you can walk everywhere that you need or just catch a tram from out the front. Overall, we always look forward to staying here for our stays in the city.

We have often stayed at this club. The beautiful blackwood rooms are very pleasant.
The breakfast is great, they now have a machine, for fresh juice which was excellent.
The facilities including the library are very worthwhile, as is the swimming pool and gym.
I am happy to stay at this club, although it is at the upper end of the price scale, as it is a very comfortable place to stay. The situation is very handy to retail therapy and also all other attractions and very handy for tram travel.

I went here for a work conference. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious with large walk in robes. Comfy beds with a decent offering for breakfast. It is conveniently located in heart of the city. A bit of an old man’s club but that’s the history of the establishment. I would definitely stay again for work purposes.
