Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had three families staying here for five nights and were all very comfortable with the layout of the Grainger. It is in an excellent location and we enjoyed walking to many local, inner city areas. There is fine attention to detail within this home, and the hamper and toiletries provided were all of a high quality and ethical standard. We were all very impressed with this house and would highly recommend it to other large groups.

Fantasic Property

  • 5 of 5

There were 14 of us on a Mother/Daughter weekend away formal dress shopping from Sydney. Location was excellent with a tram stop outside the front door of the property but only a 20 minute walk to the CBD. There is a service station and pub/bottle shop only a few minutes walking distance away. The house has everything you need and is very clean, comfortable and well looked after. The welcome basket was greatly appreciated. The only issues we had were the heater in the back room was not working, the split system in one of the bedrooms was not working, the towel rail in one of the bathrooms kept falling off and the shower head in one of the showers would not tighten making the shower unusable but there were 3 more showers so we didn't have a problem and feedback was given to the property managers. Would highly recommend and will be staying here again in the future.

Perfect guest house

  • 5 of 5

The Grainger was our home in Melbourne for eight days, during my son's wedding. We spent the most memorable time there, thirteen of us, under one roof. The rooms were well furnished and comfortable with attention to detail. The property management and staff (thanks Alex, Caroline, Sian were extremely courteous and helpful and went out of their way to cater to all our needs. The amenities provided in the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms, were of high quality and generous. While we attended the various wedding functions in the evenings, the days were spent exploring Melbourne. The location of The Grainger was perfect for this. I would highly recommend Luxico Homes and The Grainger in particular for group stay and most certainly will stay in a Luxico home when I visit Melbourne again.

An inner city gem.

  • 5 of 5

Twelve mature adults from country Victoria recently had the time of their lives exploring Melbourne over three days , based at "The Grainger " , 168 Nicholson Street, Fitzroy. A property offering excellent accommodation from head to toe to please even the fussiest of guests. With public transport right at your feet and eating spots not much further away such as the Pumphouse Hotel and the exquisite Standard Hotel tucked away in nearby Fitzroy Street, what more could you want! Give the Grainger a try. You certainly won't regret it!

fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

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.
