4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My room was a unique setup - In a corner, with an L-shape overall, and the bathroom in the center. There was an entrance "Hall", then the bed area, and a desk/kitchenette making up the rest. As I alerted the desk, the mattress was in desperate need of replacement, as the left side clearly saw the most use, and had... More

location is good for the view and the Penguins!! It is not in the city center with a distance of 45minutes drive or plan for 1hour for public transportation. But it has everything we need. The beach is right opposite the hotel. The penguins are there at the end of the pier every evening :). there is a street full... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights last week and the location is excellent with lots of interesting eating places nearby and the well-known markets on a Sunday morning. We had booked a room overlooking the bay which was nice ... a great view. Whilst the room had everything a hotel room should, it was very small. Our colleague was... More

We arrived at the Novotel to be informed that we had been upgraded to an executive suite with ocean views. This was only the first wonderful surprise. The room is very large, spacious even, and well laid. It's a great room for us to enjoy our weekend off.

Our room was right on the front with wonderful views to the bay and all the activity on the esplanade, and yet amazingly quiet and peaceful. The spa bathe hit the spot and helped us to settle in. The staff were ever willing (although the service a little slow), the evenning food was excellent with a scrumptious breakfast fit for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Novotel Melbourne St Kilda. Great location, great room, close to transport, great views and friendly staff. The breakfasts set us up for the day, and food for the evening meal was top quality.

We stayed here for one night to be close to the Palais for a concert we were going to. The property is great value for money considering the location and terrific views of Port Philip Bay. Check in was smooth and extremely friendly and I wish I could remember the girls name. She also checked us out Saturday morning and... More

We love to be as close to the action as possible but thought we'd give this option a try to explore a part of Melbourne we weren't familiar with. Turned out to be a fabulous option and one we'd choose again. The things that would send us back are the really pleasant staff, a corner room with lovely views (can't... More
