I gotta be honest, I thought this may have been a bit run down and pretty dirty and whilst it was a bit old, it was well maintained and the staff were brilliant. Very friendly and accomodating. Food was pretty good also.

It's been quite some time since I have stayed at the Novotel in St Kilda and, to be honest, I hadn't planned to return. However, I'm glad I did! I booked an Executive King room with a view. The two good-sized, ocean-facing windows provided wonderful views of the beach and the Esplanade (which were hosting Sunday markets - well worth...

The Novotel at St Kilda is in a great location but our standard king room was very ordinary. As others have noted, this hotel is overdue for refurbishment. The walls were scuffed, the paint damaged, the carpet tired and the grouting in the bathroom needed a clean. The restaurant and reception areas were fine but the pool area also needed...

We had an overnight stay as we attended a wedding across the road at the sea baths. The location was fantastic, especially if you are a tourist, beach across the road, tram to the city outside the door, Ackland Street and Fitzroy Street right there. Hotel is dated, needs refurbishment. Standard room was very small however bed was comfortable and...

We stayed here as it was close to business meetings I had. The location is perfect. Walk to the beach, walk to the main restaurant and bars of St. Kilda plus is right at a tram stop and the beach! It's not a fancy hotel. Rooms are standard mid tier and the breakfast buffet was also standard level. They have...

Positives: This hotel is in an excellent, convenient location. There is a tram stop directly out the front, and you can catch the 96 tram from directly outside Southern Cross Station. The beach is across the road, and it is an easy walk to the action of Acland st or Luna Park. Our bed was really comfortable, and block out...

Stayed here two nights on last weekend. Tried to book a room with beach view but not available. Booked a standard room. After checking in found the room was too small, smelly (probably from carpet) and unclean carpet. Furniture is cheap for such 4 star rating hotel.
