“Great location - shame about the WiFi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Great location - close to the city and good access to the suburbs.

It's a pity WiFi is not part of the package - a small charge of $10.00 per day wouldn't be noticed. Better still free for Le Club Accor members.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Due to the International Rugby game in Melbourne on Sat 29 June all accomodation in Melbourne was booked out for the Sat night so we had to fly across from Perth on the midnight horror arriving Sunday morning at the Novotel around 7:30am. The checkin staff were great wanting to find us a room so that we could have a sleep but due to the rugby the hotel was full. They suggested we have breakfast and they would call us when a room was cleaned and they would make it available to us. This occurred around 10.30am with Erin offering us a room that wasn't in the best location (near lifts) but she said we could use it for a few hours just to get some sleep and then when things settled they would find us another room. This was great as we were both very tired and desperately needing sleep.

The room was very clean and we both fell into a deep sleep. On awakening Erin in her very friendly and efficient manner arranged an upgrade to a spa suite on the ocean side (great views) which was a very big comfortable room. The upgrade was complimentary and considering we had booked the 'mystry hotel' this was a significant bonus. Together with the friendly and efficient staff the quality of the food from room service was of a standard of a 5 star resturant. It was brilliant.

As we had booked and paid for another 3 nights accomodation at a cbd hotel we reluctantly left the novotel for the other accomodation. Our preference would have been to stay at the Novotel. We will be back!!!!

We have stayed at that Novotel St Kilda Beach several times and it is our favourite hotel when in Melbourne. It is in a great location and the staff are always friendly and helpful . It is a hotel I would highly recommend.

The service was friendly and efficient. The room was very comfortable and spacious and comfortable (our upgrade no doubt helped this. The location suited our activities and the ability to leave the car beyond checkout time also helped with this.
