We use the duality between group gradings and group actions to study polycyclic-by-finite group-graded rings. We show that, for such rings, graded Noetherian implies Noetherian and relate the graded Krull dimension to the Krull dimension. In addition we find a bound on the length of chains of prime ideals not containing homogeneous elements when the grading group is nilpotent-by-finite. These results have suitable corollaries for strongly groupgraded rings. Our work extends several results on skew group rings, crossed products and group-graded rings.
