“Quiet hotel in front of St Kilda Beach”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

This hotel is located in front of St Kilda Beach. Rooms are clean and well furnished, equipped with hair dryer, water boiler for tea/coffee, and ensuite. Breakfast has a wide range of food/tea/coffee but too expensive. Gym is small, but clean and functional as is the outside pool. Acland Street is only a 5-minute walk away and offers a huge selection of stores, restaurants, and bars.
City centre is just 20 minutes away by public transport or taxi.
I would recommend this hotel to relax and enjoy the beach while in Melbourne for business or leisure.

Room Tip: Ask if beach side rooms with a view are available. Arrange breakfast conditions/price before check-i...

The room we stayed in was spacious and clean with great features. The food in the hotel was amazing, especially the buffet breakfast! The best thing about staying at the Novotel St Kilda was the customer service here is excellent, especially Anthony at the front desk who made us feel welcome and that nothing was too much trouble! Would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: If you can, get a room with a view overlooking the bay...the view is beautiful, especially at sunset...

This hotel is in a nice location with great views over St Kilda beach. We stayed in a standard bay view queen but would pay extra to upgrade to a larger room next time as the room was small and the ensuite was half in the bedroom. The shower over the bath leaked water everywhere, but apart from that the bed was really comfortable, the location quiet and the view out the window lovely. Service in the restaurant was not great ,but they where very busy and apparently under staffed.

Stayed here for a conference. Good conference facilities, including a great food package. Rooms are simple but adequate, staff friendly and helpful. Cannot fault the location - right on the beach in St. Kilda.

Excellent conference facilities staff were quite good and we were satisfied with their service. The buffet lunch was very good and I noticed an improvement of the food standard there was a wide range and something to suit everyone. The rooms are quite modern although the bath shower combo won't suit tall persons. If you are luck enough to have a water view room it is spot on.

ST KILDA is THE BEST place to stay for nightlife, cafes, arty stuff and fun! This Hotel is centrally located, tram stop to and from Melbourne city is out the front, walk accross the road to the beach and the famous "ST Kilda Pier". On checkin at hotel (for 2 nights) we were upgraded to spa room, big space with king bed, lounge. chair desk etc. Restaurant has small menu, but interesting choice, staff excellent. Breakfast was OK, good value if you are an Accor member and utilise the discount. All hotel staff were happy and cheerful. The best house maid we have ever come by in a Hotel, RINA.
Rina fussed over us and our room, especially when my roomcard wouldn't work, she went above and beyond any room staff person to make sure we were able to get a new card, then rechanged our towels later in the day, and then came in and really cleaned up our room so well , gave us friendly "no worries" with a happy smile. Lovely lovely lady.! Would stay again at any price!
