Thanks so much for reviewing The Grainger. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay.
Your feedback regarding the showers is greatly appreciated. We have invested a lot in the hotwater systems to ensure that big groups never have any issues with water pressure or hot water and it is good to know this is working as it should!

"An inner city gem."

Perfect position to explore the world's most liveable city. Caters for up to 14 in a residence with all mod cons. Public transport only a few steps from your door, and lots of eating options nearby including the Pumphouse Hotel and a hidden gem of a hotel hidden away in nearby Fitzroy Street.

Thanks so much for reviewing The Grainger. Great to hear you had a fantastic stay and we hope to look after you again!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review The Grainger. We particularly appreciate the feedback on the lack of serving dishes as these have apparently gone missing (or been broken) with out our knowledge. Thanks for letting us know - our next guests will benefit from your comments!

We have also had a new WIFI modem installed to combat internet issues thanks to you.

We hope to welcome you again soon!

"Excellent central location with conveniences right at the door."

Great location! A beautiful house with everything that you could possibly need in a vacation rental home. Alex was friendly and very accommodating - providing cots for my relatives with young children. There was plenty of space in the house with modern amenities. The tram stop right in front of the property was a huge bonus getting easily to the city centre. There was heaps of shops and restaurants within walking distance around the property. I highly recommend this place and I would definitely stay here again.

Thanks for taking the time to review The Grainger. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and hope that your family will stay at another Luxico Holiday Home soon.

"Great Accommodation, very convenient"

Travelled with a group of friends, with Families. 8 adults and 8 kids! Great accommodation, convenient location. Enough room, however, would have been better with more queen/king beds for the adults.

Thanks for your feedback. We hope you will stay with us again.
