We stayed here for our honeymoon. Due to the time of year (school holidays and tennis open) it was pretty expensive. Would liked to have stayed somewhere a bit flasher but couldn't really afford it. In the end the location was really good for us. We hung out in St Kinda's quite a bit, went to a Weezer concert over the road at the Palais Theatre, and visited Luna Park which was about 3 minutes walk away. Was really easy to get in to the CBD on the tram and I think that was only about $2 per trip with the myki card.
Beach was about 5 mins walk away. Can be a bit cold in a southerly but really heats up in a nor-wester. Had a nice gelato place there also.
Didn't really eat at the hotel. Had garlic bread and a coke one day in the restaurant but that was all. Swimming pool was nice and had a nice, fake grass area to laze in if required.
Front desk service was OK but sometimes seemed a bit rushed/short-staffed.More
