A few nights at the Royce

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 6, 2010

I stayed a week at the Royce in March 2010. The room was large and comfortable, but to get Internet access there appeared to be two packages - $25 for 24-hr access or no access. $25- was really too much in my opinion. There is a small choice of films on the pay-for-view and also an iPod speaker deck. I drank the two bottles of water left on my table - which I found out were $3 each at check-out. I needed to get IT help on the Internet access and I found the hotel staff couldn't help - they just get you to ring the helpline which isn't particularly good. The location on St Kilda Rd is OK - you can walk downtown fairly easily but trams run along the road anyway. The building used to be a Rolls-Royce showroom, hence the name. I had breakfast and felt that the service was good, plenty of waitresses were around when I needed them, and the place was less than half full at 8.30am. The restaurant is quite expensive in my opinion, but the bed was comfortable, with a big walk-in shower (no bath) and the rooms were very quiet except for the aircon fan. Guests get a bathrobe and some slippers, plus there's an ironing board and a laundry service. 24-hr room service is apparently available.
I think I would stay again, as it was near where I was working, and the area felt safe even at night, but I'm also tempted to try somewhere else just to compare what service I could get for the same price. The place never seemed very busy.

Unique Quality: Small, quirky building. Nothing else.

Directions: By Melbourne Grammar School right on St Kilda Road

Very comfortable, large rooms and a good restaurant with some seating outside. Located in St Kilda Rd which is a nice part of town.

Unique Quality: Quirky architecture. It was a Rolls-Royce dealer at one point, and part of the Grammar School which is nearby.

Directions: Go down St Kilda Road and it's near the Grammar School

Overrated

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 31, 2005

This hotel is very overrated. It is apparently a 5 star hotel and is priced accordingly. Let me give you the tip, this is far too expensive, shop around you can get a far better deal. Almost every aspect we were sold on the hotel was a dissapointment in reality. The gym is ridiculous. it has 3 bits of equipment in a room that you could not swing a cat. The spa rooms have bath tubs with jets. The breakfast was probably the worst I have had in a hotel in melbourne. The room is OK and spacious. Television is basically local tv with 2 other channels. It is not far out of the city but there are so many better hotels in the heart of the city that there really is no reason to stay here. They need to drastically drop their prices or dramatically improve facities.
