a nice big room with king sized bed, day bed and desk, all over looking the Upper Esplanade and Port Phillip Bay. Friendly check in. Can,t see the point of a large window between bed area and the bathroom, but fortunately there was a blind. No free wifi. It was actually quite expensive, so I used my 3/4G .

This hotel is a business hotel in a beach side suburb. The rooms are basic but appropriately appointed. The rooms are average size, in good condition, very clean but appear a bit sparse. Their is no additional seating furniture other than one office desk and chair, a it odd I thought for the location. The breakfast was included in our... More

I booked the Superior room with bay view. It is a lovely view! Room is a good size. Bathroom has shower over bath tub. Ceiling in bathroom needs a bit of maintenance. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Parking is an extra $25 a day but very easy to get in and out of. Had a meal in their restaurant on... More

Great stay with tram stop in front of the hotel. Very easy to get from Southern Cross Station to hotel via 96 tram. Rooms very clean and nice breakfast. No In-house movies, a little disappointing for the kids. Very good restaurants less than 5min's down the road. With Luna Park on the corner.

Stayed here in May for one night for work. The hotel was in a great location overlooking St Kilda Beach. An easy walk to restaurants, shopping and the tram into Melbourne CBD is right at the doorstep. (It takes about 15 minutes to get into Melbourne on the tram) Was given an upgrade on arrival to a room with a... More

We chose this hotel for it's vicinity to next days event. Arrived after dark, check-in smooth, room on 4th floor had window that overlooked carpark. Interconnecting room, although locked, meant we could hear our neighbors arrival conversation clearly late at night.Twin room that was clean but very small - in fact beds were touching as space was so limited. 4...
