Upon entrance I was impressed with this hotel. The conference I was attending was located on the deck and I was impressed with the space, decor, service and food. Seeing it was a 2 day conference I decided to book a room to save travel. I purchased on Wotif for a discounted rate so I didn't expect 5 star luxury,... More

Very nice hotel in excellent location close to beach and dinner area. Clean, modern rooms and excellent service - which has its price. SPA available - same as fast WLAN. Parking lot is close and affordable.

Stayed here for a wedding over Christmas. Nice boutique hotel. The darkness of the corridors was a little off putting as my initial reaction but it turned out to be a lovely stay for 2 nights. The rooms were spacious, clean and nice. Helpful staff. Great location for st. Kilda also.

We booked this boutique hotel based on reputation and to dine at a two hat restaurant! For my husbands birthday we had booked a corner suite, which as soon as we entered the stench of cigarette smoke was obvious. We had been told it was a non smoking room, however clearly the people prior to us did not get the... More

2 night stay with b/fast package. Great location, undercover secure car parking at a great rate. Easy to get to by car or public transport. Food was excellent and good value. Rooms are not large but we'll appointed and very clean. The bed was not the best I've had, but certainly not the worst. Attended the Deck for a wedding... More

Some elements of this hotel feel like a local hidden gem, boutique hotel. The bar, and restaurant and spa are quite nice and the ambiance of public spaces is trendy. Service is friendly. At the same time, the rooms are aged with walls (at least in my room) in desperate need of cleaning and painting. Small things like phones and... More

Having stayed here a few times, I remain pleasantly surprised by both the quality of service and equally the excellent location - as a bonus, it seems to be a really good meeting place for most Melbourne folk. Besides, St Kilda has undergone a great refresh recently and there is a new and better caliber of eatery and a growing... More

Toyed with 3 stars but I'll go to 4 based on the service and the bar area and restaurant. The rooms are really small which is the downside but it's cute and clean and as mentioned before the staff were grand. Location fine for the beach and st kilda and it wasn't expensive so I'd definitely stay here again. No... More

I chose to stay in this hotel based on feedback it received from another site. I was in Melbourne for several days and particularly went out of my way to see what the Prince was all about. The entrance was modern elegance and the bar was great. However there was not much of a welcome or even an acknowledgement by... More
