Location accessible to C.B.D.

This is my 2nd stay at The Royce Hotel. The first time was excellent, but this stay was very disappointing due to the fact the Hotel was at full capacity, therefore the hotels hot water service was not functioning, so no hot water in rooms, needless to say a cold shower was on offer. Hotel did not offer any kind of Refund.

Fantasic Location Great Rooms Pitty about Staff

We booked our stay a year in advance ready for the ANZAC centenary dawn service at the Shine of Rememberance. This hotel is in the perfect location to trams and entertainment of the southern side of town. The room was fantasic, one of the best that I have had recently and even though the room fronted St.Kilda Road it was very quiet given its double glazing to the windows. The Bed was very comfortable with a good selection of pillows and the scent of the bed was very welcoming. The electronic lighting system within the room we found a bit confusing but we were able to achieve what we needed eventually. A small balcony at the front of the unit overlooking St.Kilda Road was nicely shaded by a grand old tree and the whole feel of the hotel was quite opulent. Negative: Parking is on a first in best dressed basis at $25-00 for the overnight stay otherwise you are forced to park on St.Kilda road, not a great choice even if you are opposite the St.Kilda Road Police headquarters. There is only around 20 parking spots in the basement which is accessed through Valet. Service within the Retaurant for breakfast was poor and one waitress rudely threw my suit jacket which had all my medals on it from hanging on a chair that was part of our table into my lap as she quickly ussered the chair away without even offering to hang it elsewhere. I found this extremely rude and further request for coffee (additional cost for barrista coffee) met with an abrupt reuest for $4- per cup otherwise your choice is brewed. This is not really upto standard for a 5 Star hotel and the management need to review this policy. WiFi access carries an additional charge also..this is unacceptable in this day and age when almost all establishments are now offering free WiFi. I also do not understand why the hotel let in general public to the restaurant for breakfast when Hotel patrons could not obtain a table, this is very poor and I overheard a number of guests complaining about this fact. Summary: Great Location, fantastic clean rooms with comfy beds, Staff need better customer service skills especially if this is a 5 Star Hotel. I would stay again at a less busy time to hopefully have the staff redeem themselves.

It's a Modern Art Deco Treasure

If you like something with class, flair, modernity and with an art deco bent you will love the Royce. I have stayed at this hotel on at least five occasions and have enjoyed it every time. There is an interesting range of rooms, but when you travel for business, it's the small things that make you efficient on the road. Other than a pool, all facilities are in the hotel should you need it. It has a great public bar, a brilliant restaurant and its a quick 5 minute ride to the city in a cab or 8 in a tram.

Our default Melbourne location

We always stay at the Royce when we go to Melbourne. It's in a great location on St Kilda Rd, very close to the Botanical Gardens, a quick tram trip to the city or Chapel St and we always feel welcomed and appreciated. The staff will always greet you with a smile and a hello, the breakfast buffet hits the spot and the rooms are comfortable and smart. Why go anywhere else?

Stretch your legs and walk along to Toorak Rd and then down to Chapel St. Once you've filled your bellies and emptied your wallets, jump on the tram back to the hotel. Everything you need is just around the corner!
