    Fabulous

    The Royce is fantastically positioned/situated in Melbourne. It's size, our room with a view over the war memorial & Eureka tower were superb. After a huge search of hotels in Melbourne's CBD, I felt this was the best selection for our criteria ie quiet location, view, ambience & position on St Kilda Rd & cost in comparison to some more expensive hotels.

    The cost of $329 was a big outlay for our budget but we found the room comfortable, enjoyable & of an adequate size. Only downside would be the cooking smell in the hallway outside the lift from the Dish restaurant.

    Close to the trams and walking distance to city

    The staff were friendly and helpful with giving me instructions on using public transport and were to get things from.

    Fabulous

    The styling of the room, the friendly staff, the little bonus of free drink but especially for the bar downstairs, the location suited my needs. In addition I was up-graded to 308 - a balcony room facing the college/school.

    Nothing. Only that I had to leave.

    Aside from my preference for a small hotel, I do not consider this a 5 star hotel. At most I will give it a 4! Even a bottle of mineral water in the room is charged at 6.50 Auz. The room rate is $300+ per day. Wifi is free for 1 hour and if they do not run out of coupons for the day! I would not go there again! There r better places around.

    Very clean and cosy, whilst still managing some class.

    Very good

    The contemporary design. Like the two drink coupons as well :)

    The towels are regular towels and not bath sheets. Also the towels are a little tired and old. Plush bath sheets would be the improvement to focus on.

    location

    was not happy I was allocated an unrenovotated room 221 in the historical section of the hotel instead of the contemporary section. Had an expectation from your website the rooms advertised visually displayed contemporary styled designed room which influenced to proceed with the booking. There was no mention on your website that a section of the hotel was going under refurbishment. If i knew of this I would not have proceeded with the booking. It is important to maintain the intergrity of the product that is being advertised. The front desk staff did not highlight this my room was in the unrenovated section. Suggest to Royce management the 2 rooms in the historical section to be allocated at the last resort and to highlight the fact they are not to the standard of the other rooms in the new section.

    Superb

    The building and rooms felt luxurious without being pretentious. Staff were very helpful and sincere.

    I would have liked a complimentry bottle of sparkling with package.
