"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.

"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.

The Grainger was a wonderful place to stay. We had 6 adults and 2 small children but the property would be equally suitable for more people and no children. It had every-thing we needed and more! Real… More

Thanks for your lovely review of The Grainger.

We are happy to accommodate families at The Grainger as well as many of our other properties, and are happy that you made use of our travel cots, high chairs, change mats, toys and pram. (We hope this made your travel a lot easier!)

The Grainger is located in a prime position to enjoy the city as well as the delights of Brunswick St. The house is spotless, has great facilities, very comfortable beds and a compact and cosy TV room… More

Thanks so much for taking the time to review the Grainger. We are thrilled that you had such a fantastic time. I'm very sorry that you felt our reminder that we have a No Party Policy at this property was "heavy handed". Unfortunately, we have had guests recently who caused a considerable amount of damage, which is quite devastating given the time and effort we have invested in making The Grainger Melbourne's top luxury holiday home.
