The Prince is the gold standard for hotels and hospitality! Every single point of our stay delivered a wonderful and genuinely first class experience, which cannot be faulted. From the front desk staff, to the house maids to the staff in the bars and restaurants. It’s the one percenters which can make or break a hotel experience. The Prince and the people who work at that magnificent Art Deco hotel deliver one percenters every single day. We have stayed there probably 10 times over the years and with all the renovations now complete (including the newly refurbished public bar) it delivered us a 10/10 experience. We can not recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you Prince if Wales and your wonderful team of people for making our Melbourne experience truly fabulous!
