“Short but sweet”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I needed a hotel close to the railway station as I was on my own and didn't want too far to walk with heavy bags etc. You know what its like ladies, we take far too much away with us...well it was perfect, almost next door. There is also a Crispy Cream doughnut shop just over the road and they open at 0630, so time to grab some for your journey. The Grand is a lovely old building and I asked for a quiet room if poss. this was done and I had a studio room on floor 6 on spencer street, there is trafic noise but it is a city hotel and to be expected, the windows are double glazed. I had a big balcony too, nice for a bit of fresh air. the bathroom was nice and clean as was the kitchen area, good bath products too. Most important was the bed, it was FABULAS really comfy, nice pillows aswell. I was only in the hotel from 2100- 0645 so no meals so I can't coment on the food. The staff were very friendly on check-in and when I left offering all sorts of help. All in all a very good night and I would certainly use this hotel again

This was a lovely hotel. Beautiful high ceilings. Staff were accommodating and helpful but not particularly friendly. Our room was great but there was a big coffee / tea stain on the curtains which nothing was done about even though we told reception straight away. We had a huge tv display outside our room which was a bit intrusive and there was a fair bit of traffic noise.
All in all not bad but felt like we had been given a bit of a dud room.

My BF and I bought a mystery deal on Wotif.com and we got the Grand Hotel. We had never heard of it and we were skeptical at first, but WOW - we are so pleased we got the Grand!
The rooms were warm, homely, comfy - everything about the rooms was lovely.
They have this beautiful old heritage feel about them - and you don't hear any of the noise from the busy city streets. (The TV could have bigger though)
We are going back to Melbourne in 3 weeks are we are staying there again as the location is GREAT! Close to the Southern Cross Station, the Casino, and the main tram lines. Would recommend to anyone visiting Melbourne
