Such amazing staff, two gentlemen in particular made us feel very welcome. They were very professional and kind. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed due to COVID-19 but very excited to come back again to see the renovations and try the food at the restaurant. Great view from our room.

The hotel is tired and about to close for a major refurbishment in 2021. Despite minimal staffing and all onsite food/room services being closed there were no alternatives in-room or offsite offered. The rates for stay were not taking any of this into account,

Dear Gunvant, Thank you for your honesty when reviewing your recent stay with us at the Royce. It is disappointing to hear that you felt your stay did not meet your expectations. The past eight months have been incredibly difficult for the hotel and travel industry. The consequences of this has meant we have had to make some difficult decisions around our service offering whilst we remain open prior to the commencement of our refurbishment in 2021. For the benefit of readers I would like to note that we do offer complete transparency and contact each guest prior to arrival and explain our change in services and restaurant closures. Allowing for complete flexibility, offering cancellations free of charge if a guest choose not to stay. Gunvant, please note that I will share your review with the team and ensure that all are well versed and up to date in offering local restaurant information to our guests. Again for the benefit of readers wonderful restaurants only a stones throw away from the hotel include The Botanical, Gilson and Entrecote. All overlooking the Botanical Gardens on Domain Road an offering as of 2 November offering both dine in and take away options. I note you did reply to our post stay survey and before we had the opportunity to contact you, on the same day you posted your review on this site. It is unfortunate that you did not speak with us during your stay and make us aware of your dissatisfaction as I am confident our team would have done all in their power to create a memorable experience. Thank you for the opportunity of reply online. Wishing you all the best for the remainder of the year and 2021. With kind regards, Nick McLennan General Manager

Perfect for a weekend or staycation close to the Botanical Gardens and restaurants of South Yarra and Melbourne CBD. Swift check in with attentive staff. Loved the bathroom amenities and selected complimentary minibar items such a nice touch. Gorgeous rooms!! Will stay again.

A wonderful Hotel to spend our last night in Melbourne before heading back to Nz. We were warmly welcomed by Nick who is the current General Manager. He helped us with our many bags from the taxi. Check-in was a quick process irrespective of the additional COVID procedures that are now in place. We needed to reshuffle our bags (5 large suitcases) Nick was nice enough to allow us to use one of the function rooms for more space. The room was lovely, On the second floor. We had a great night sleep on blush bedding. The hotel is close to the botanical gardens which is perfect for a morning run. Would stay again and highly recommend.

The Staff at the Royce are always friendly, clean rooms with modern features made my stay during business trip effortless. The "dish" restaurant provided a great range of breakfast treats and the Amberoom always had a great atmosphere
