Punthill South Yarra Grand

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed in Room 1110 for one night. Great sized apartment and excellent self catering facilities - could easily stay here for a week to work/sight see around Melbourne.Surprised at how quiet it was given the location. 2 minutes walk to the train station and then a quick ride into the city. Nearby to the hotel are a great selection of cafes and restaurants - we had breakfast at Two Birds, One Stone, lunch at Middle South East and afternoon tea from Burch & Purchese. The bed was very comfortable, and for extended stays, there is even a washing machine in the bathroom. Car parking was simple, and special mention to the friendly staff of reception over the weekend, personable and efficient.

Nice apartments. They are a little small but have everything you need. Located next to the Yarra Train station so super close to public transportation. And that train station is only two stops from the main downtown area.

I stayed here for three nights and felt satisfied with everything about my stay. Location is incredibly convenient, being close to the restaurant and cafe scene on Toorak Rd, and is a minute walk away to/from South Yarra train station. The hotel itself is fairly simple in presentation and facilities but it does what it does well - customer service is warm and friendly, bedding is comfortable, and the rooms are clean, spacious and well appointed. Some aspects of the room have been updated while other aspects probably need a little bit of touching up (e.g. fraying carpet at the edges, shower curtains could use a clean or a change), but they don't pose any hindrances. Main annoyance for me was probably only minor in the scheme of things - as I was in the city for work and using the room as a workspace, I noticed there weren't many power points in the room and the ones that were available were in a slightly hard-to-access areas. Overall, this apartment hotel presents great value for money in a good location.

What a great find, our apartment was clean and spacious. Staff were lovely and accommodating. Spa awesome! Close to public transport to get into the city for a day trip. Restaurants and shopping are only a stone's throw away. We will be back :)

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment in the 10th floor. While on the railway side I had very little noise and the view of the city was a great extra. The apartment includes an oven which isn’t always in an apartment around South Yarra so if you’re self catering that’s a big advantage. Good sized balcony and living area. Perfectly located with plenty of restaurants around and the train station across the road. Will be back

OK, 'grand' might be going a bit far as it's not the Ritz. But, as far as value for money goes the Punthill South Yarra Grand is pretty hard to top. This was our third stay in a one-bedroom apartment and won't be our last. The staff welcome visitors warmly and are ever ready to assist. The apartments are clean, comfortable and tastefully appointed. The location is very good, being next to the South Yarra Train Station and Tram route 58 is just 200 metres from the front door. Chapel Street shops and eateries are nearby.

I stayed for one night while attending a wedding. The rooms are spacious particularly the one - bedrooms. Having a kitchen is convenient, especially if you are staying longer. The place was neat and tidy. It is located right next to the station and close to lots of shops I was actually locked out of my room (key malfunction) for a couple of hours, but staff were helpful and did all they could (offering me other rooms in the interim) and I was upgraded and given a bottle of wine afterwards. Overall I would stay here again.

Over the last 6-7 years i have stayed here many times ... Great location and staff always helpful...maybe time a few rooms got a reno ... nobody uses 8 pin ipods anymore. The pick is the 2 bedroom apartments lots of room to move and good size balconys. (Southside espresso bar near by is good for a coffee and breakie)

We got to the hotel 2 hours before check in time, we asked if the room was ready and reception said it wasn't so she would give us a call if it was. I came back to check if the room was ready an hour before check in time and she said it was so I was a bit confused as to why she didn't bother giving us a call. She wasn't the friendliest person, but I just didn't think much of it. We got to the room and it was pretty average. We had the studio apartment, so yea, it was small, but it was the view that was a big bother. There is a pretty decent sized balcony which was great, but the view from the balcony is inside the next apartment blocks. I could see what everyone was doing inside their homes. It was quite awkward. The kitchen and the bathroom were adequate, however, although there is a full on functional kitchen, there is no table to eat on. There was one arm chair looking thing and a very low, small table, but not enough to eat on for two people. Location wise, it was behind the station, and the apparently, amazing Chapel St, but I didn't really get the hype. Everything seemed much pricier than Sydney, but put that down to the location we were in. Overall, it was okay, the apartment was clean and it was enough for the night stay, but I don't think I would go back there, regardless of how close it is to the train station.

I recently stayed at the Punthill South Yarra Grand for a week. I found the staff very welcoming, helpful and professional, especially Adrian. My room was perfect for my needs, clean, with a comfortable bed,and was very well serviced each day. Thank you cleaning staff. I liked the fact I had cooking facilities, crockery and cutlery if I needed them, as well as a washing machine and drier. I found the apartment central to many cafes, restaurants and shops, and as it is close to the South Yarra Train Station I could get into Melbourne City easily. There are some really nice river walks close by. I will definitely consider staying at these apartments again when next I am in Melbourne.
