Quest Grand Hotel Melbourne
Ranked #57 of 160 Hotels in Melbourne
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 December 2012

Stayed at The Grand Hotel for one night. The building is nice to look at. We stayed in an apartment in the hotel. It was extremely spacious and clean. Only complaint is in regards to the layout of the apartment. The bedrooms, located on the second floor, have no walls on one side, resulting in limited privacy. The hotel's pool and spa is also very good, whilst the staff were friendly. Located reasonably centrally and close to Southern Cross Station.

We had been booked into this hotel and circumstances required us to extend our stay in Melbourne during the Gold Cup. At AUD329 per night this was exceptionally poor value for money and apart from the restaurant the service was fairly mediocre and our "Studio Suite" (not as grand as it sounds) was shabby and needed refurbishing. The bathroom was tiny and you could only just sit on the toilet in the gap between it and the wall. The room wasn't cleaned everyday and was only vaccuumed when we complained. No fixed safe in the room and you have to request one if you want one - when I asked about one I was told by 'Bob' the friendly receptionist that they don't advertise safes in their rooms so had no cause for complaint. The housekeeping guy arrived carrying it easily under one arm - just as easy for someone to carry it out again since it wasn't fixed to anything. Nonetheless we were assured our valuables were very safe.

By contrast, we ate in the restaurant a couple of times and the food and service was very good and reasonably priced. So well worth a visit to eat there but not a great place to stay for value and comfort.

we stayed at the Grand so that I could attend a conference at Etihad Stadium. The hotel is an easy walk from the stadium, central shopping district and federation square AND the 96 St Kilds tram stops out the front. Apart from it great location the hotel is really nothing very special, yes it a heritage building, and yes has dramatic (although now tired) features and yes it was clean but generally our room was a little tired and many features needed a good dusting. Meals are very expensive as is parking ($35 per day). Cost seemed Ok but on investigation I could have gotten a better deal at other 'up market' hotels which were in the same vacinity. We generally felt that while this hotel was touted as being am MGallery total it is infact really just a Mecure (same family different class).

Room Tip: level 6 with a balcony is quite nice, lots of sun. A room overlooking Spencer street is a must to a...

We always love staying at this hotel - and this stay was no exception. Diego on reception was fabulous and had us checked in in no time.
Our room was lovely as usual, but I did notice that the steel rods in the ceiling were covered in dust - not a huge issue but very noticeable from the upstairs bedroom and needs to be addressed.
Always a great nigths sleep here with the "My Bed". Love this place.

Beautiful old building but rooms are tired and need refurbishment. Reception was business like but apart from one staff member were not welcoming or friendly. Two bedrooms on mezzanine are open so noise can be an issue.

Stayed for two nights in this hotel, for the first time. Location is quite central, close to the Train station, easy to access also by car. Rooms are spacious, but urgently need an overhaul - carpet sticky and spotted, bathroom tiny (can't even open the door fully), the sofa in my room had open seams and the filling came out, and so on...staff is not overly friendly, but I guess I'm spoiled by Asian attitude - but would you be happy, if you start complaining about the Wifi policy and the person simply hangs up? Check out whereas was smooth and I even got a smile. Eventually.
On the good side, it's quite, bed is comfortable. Breakfast in the adjacent cafe is ok, tiny cups of coffee though (avoid Cappucino or Latte macchiato in that case), the scrambled egg with the bread was really good!
