I had a horrible check-in experience. Like the previous reviewer, I was also given horrible directions to my room- oh wait, it wasn't even my room. It was occupied by other guests. I had just traveled a far distance, I had tons of bags, I'm pregnant and irritable, it was extremely hot, and I really wanted to get my room. I had to wait for the check in girl to help about 5 or 6 other guests before she could correct my situation- in the interim, I had other guests yelling at me... it was a disaster. The check in girl never could find it in her to apologize to me for how it all went down. Really put a damper on the beginning of my trip.
The room itself was small and not worth the price. Overall, I didn't even really enjoy St. Kilda and my hotel experience was largely responsible for this.
However, the location of this hotel is convenient to transportation, beach (which was not really swimmable), and restaurants.
Look into another option. Good luck!
