It was ok. Standard hotel. The cost is not reflective of anything much. Paid extra to face the ocean in an upgraded room, but it wasn't anything fancy. It was a room with some windows, a bed, couch, small table and bathroom. I must admit, I liked the bathroom and particularly, the fact that there was a bath for me... More

Excellent location and very comfortable hotel. One of the better in-house gyms of any of the hotels I stay at. The bar can close early, so as a late night person that is a bit disappointing. Sound proofing between connected rooms was tested by some noisy bonkers next door. Highlights of the area were Penguin spotting across the road on... More

We stayed one night. On arrival I was told our room was ready early - which was great and very convenient however other than that this was virtually all the information he told me. He gave me to cards for the room and said have a nice stay! No "you are on level five, you can find the elevators to... More

We enjoyed staying at the Novotel because of the great location. Staff were helpful and the room was nice. We had nice views of the beach and esplanade. It was quiet and we couldn't fault it except a slight smokey smell in the hallway every time we came or went despite being a non-smoking hotel.

Our experience at the hotel was great from booking in to booking out. The customer service is to a very high standard. Our room was spacious (king room) and clean. The breakfast was generous and delicious. We would highly recommend this hotel. The ease of getting a taxi to anywhere we needed to go was fantastic.

If you're looking for an all out - spoil yourself getaway in the heart of the trendy St Kilda hub then this is the place to stay! If you're flying in, forget about a hire car - you won't need one because everything is within a short walk. Acland street - Fitzroy street - the harbour - indoor heated pool... More
