Novotel Melbourne St Kilda
Ranked #6 of 19 Hotels in St Kilda
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Hi, We live in suburban Melbourne and had a few commitments in the city last weekend so we decided to have a treat and stay in town.

The Novotel St Kilda was ideally located for our needs. The room was terrific with a wonderful view of the beach & ocean and the location was abuzz with activity.

We would definitely stay here again, and again.

Great service, comfortable bed, clean and tidy room. Has a reasonable gym setup and also a swimming pool. The location is brilliant, and easy walking distance to Ackland Street and Fitzroy Street. Definitely stay again!

This is quite a nice hotel but a bit run down. As part of my first impressions I was particularly put off by the exceptional build up of dirt on the thresholds of the lifts. This more than anything tainted my view of the hotel as a whole.

Our stay at Novotel st Kilda was a lovely experience.We enjoyed lovely views each day from our king sized room overlooking the esplanade and bay.Waking up each morning and watching what was happening outside was a real pleasure. trams passing, people jogging,walking ,going to work ,for us on holiday. It made us appreciate it all the more. We didn't,t manage to make use of the dining facilities,but they looked excellent. our room was spotlessly clean,linen changed every day,and the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. We would most definitely stay there again.The location was perfect as our daughter lives in St Kilda and the transport was excellent, plus all the cafes and restaurants a short walk away.Thanks for a wonderful 5 days.

We were offered a room upgrade for a small amount when we arrived which we took. We did expect the room to be abit less corporate but it was clean and functional. Food quality for room service was excellent. Only annoyance I had was forgetting a suit behind. I made an appointment, went to the hotel, and nobody could find the suit. After leaving I received a call to say it had been found. They chucked it in a tiny postbag and sent it to me. I was frustrated at the waste of time, poor communication and crumpled suit missing its hanger.

Thank you for your feedback with regards to your belongings that were left behind at the hotel after your departure along with the great feedback on our room service. It is important to us that all our guests have a great experience during and after their stay here at the Novotel St Kilda.

Please accept our apologies for the way your suit was sent back to you and for the unneccessary time you spent locating it. I have discussed this with our team to ensure we use this experience as a way to improve our service after our guests depart. As we know, it is the first and last impression that has the greatest impact on whether people enjoy an experience or not.

Once again, thank you

No complaints from me. The hotel and conference centre is close to public transport and the nightlife of Acland street. To see the Spirit of Tasmania and RAN vessels in Port Phillip Bay is different from living inland.

I stayed at the Novotel St Kilda for work and would recommend the hotel. It is well located with the city tram at the front door, Acland and Fitzroy Streets - both have an abundance of restaurants and cafes - within a 10 minute walk and the St Kilda beach less than 100 meters away. My room had all the amenities you would expect from a hotel of this standard. My room had a full bathroom, including bath, a king size bed and writing desk. I did not have beach views, but nevertheless, the views were very good across the swimming and suburban St Kilda. Brekfast is buffet style and the selection was plentiful for me.
