This place is good for self catering or large groups up to 6 people. I stayed at the Stanton Apartment during September with my sister and mother. We stayed for 5 nights and 6 days. The usual cost is around $375-425 for 7 days or so according to their website but when I called I was quoted $215 a night... More

Stayed here for x-mas 2014. had a big family reunion & it was just what we wanted. When I was looking for a place to stay I had to consider everyone;s budget & the Stanton appts suited all of us.

Located right next to a tram stop and very achievable walk to St Kilda beach, we found this hotel to be ideal for a family holiday. We had a three bedroom apartment for 3 adults and 2 kids. The room were large and comfortable. The bathroom was large with a separate shower and bath. The bath was very useful for... More

The apartment was tidy and relatively clean. Unsure what the standard of service was, we didn't have any for the week and had to ask for a change of towels, but no dramas. Only issue was with carpark, there are only a couple of carparks available and they kept moving as to what was available. In the end we always... More

We stayed at Stanton Apartments for 6 days. Barbera at reception was awsome, very friendly,informative always ready to assist us in any way. Apartment was so clean, roomy with a huge kitchen. Great having three bedrooms. Tram stop right outside to go to CBD or St.Kilda. Everything convenient. Would stay there again. Thanks heaps Barbera.

We had two 3 bedroom apartments and they both were unclean,dirty walls mirrors had writing on them from previous guests. Mould behind main bedroom door was discovered on the carpet. Both staff...

We regretted our booking at these apartments within minutes of our arrival. The receptionist and the foyer area set the standard for the accommodation, which was definitely not high. The apartment and all common areas were tired and badly maintained. The apartment itself was grimy, the couches dirty and had cigarette burns on them. St Kilda road and Union street,... More
