The Grainger - A LUXICO HOLIDAY HOME is rated 4.9091 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous property 10 girls recently stayed in this property and it was perfect. plenty of room and bathrooms. we shopped and ate and drank our way around Melbourne. With the tram at the door it was perfect to bring home all those shopping bags. Or local pub for the stay was the Pump House one block away, great for afternoon drinks prior to eating out. We could walk to the city and the free tram and to Lygon st for delicious Italian food. we are booking again for next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property The Grainger was an excellent property for our group of 16, including cheerleaders and parents, to stay at whilst visiting Melbourne for the Australian National Cheerleading Competition. It was well presented, close to transport and shops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staying at a terrace house in Inner Melbourne was a new experience for the 8 of us. 4 Couples stayed at the Grainger for 3 nights and we loved the convenient location, the restaurants and cafes within walking distance and the amenities at the house. Every couple had their own bathroom and we appreciated having a washing machine and dryer. Thanks again for a fabulous memory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Grainger was the best accomodation 9 mums on a shopping trip from New Zealand could have wanted! With the tram stop right outside and such a great proximity to the wonderful Brunswick St we were able to dine out and shop til we dropped very easily. The space and facilities were amazing - especially not having to wait for showers with 9 women and having the space to relax with a wine and nibbles as such a large group. Alex was amazing to deal with and was very willing able to help us out and accommodate us. Will recommend this outstanding house to anybody travelling to the amazing city of Melbourne! I hope to return soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from With 6 of us coming from Perth for the Australian Quilt Convention we needed somewhere within easy reach of the Royal Exhibition Building that also needed to have good transport and food options within a reasonable distance. The Grainger fitted the bill perfectly with the bonus of everyone having their own rooms and with 4 bathrooms there was minimal queuing! Would highly recommend for small groups with similar requirements to ours!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Grainger would have to be one of THE BEST properties available to rent for short stays in Melbourne! It is a stately house that is well positioned in the inner city zone with easy walking access to the CBD, Lygon street, Brunswick Street, Gertrude Street and the Melbourne Museum and IMAX theatre.The house itself is beautifully presented and is tastefully decorated throughout and is very, very comfortable! My family recently stayed here when they came to Melbourne for my wedding, it was just fantastic that my entire family (6 adults and 5 children) were able to comfortably stay in the one location which made it easy for us all to get together. Alex the property owner and manager was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was always very helpful and responsive.I would happily recommend any of my freinds or family to stay here as I know they won't be disappointed.
