We booked the Novotel St Kilda on a Wotif mystery deal. I had always wanted to stay there, so took the chance that the mystery deal was going to be the Novotel. I was very excited that it was! The staff were very friendly, professional and helpful, the facilities were good and there was ample on site parking at $20... More

Staff welcoming, good friendly service, king sized bed room overlooking beach, close access to sea baths as well as small outdoor swimming pool. Can't go past St Kilda for eateries, entertainment for families and couples. Liked the relaxed atmosphere, unfortunately could only stay overnight. Will definitely return

I have recently stayed in high-end hotels, so facing a work-related three night stay at St Kilda I was prepared for a downgrade. What did I expect? Smaller rooms, crowded bathroom, no separate toilet. This was the case, but the Novotel at St Kilda has the charm of a beachside suburb as a trade-off. We had a Superior room, which... More

We, my partner and I, stayed at the Novotel in a package deal with the booking of tickets to see Bob Dylan at the Palais Theatre, which is just walking distance away from the hotel. It was a queen standard room, very small. It had all we needed for our stay, though, short as it was. The beds were two... More

We stayed here for two nights as we love the St Kilda area. It was our second time here, but the hotel had not changed much from when we were here last time 7 years ago. The renovated gym was a plus though, offering a good selection. The rooms are getting old, not living up to the typical Novotel standard.... More
