Looks fine from the outside, but inside was quite old and dirty. There was a thick layer of dust over the window sills, shower, cupboards, basically everywhere. It's in a great position in the heart of St Kilda, but there's better places to stay than here.

Thanks for your feedback. Whilst it was disappointing to hear you were underwhelmed with some aspects of your stay the feedback does provide me a good indication on areas in which we can improve. I will look at some of the items I can fix and work on these. Dust is not acceptable and I will be sure to follow...

Not the best experience I've had in the last year. Old and run down. Side bed table missing, TV not able to turn to watch from TV. Heard the room neighbours talking - ver noisy place. Dust on the shelves dirty kettle. Will not stay there again, luckily it was only for 1 night.

Well positioned, well appointed Hotel with very friendly staff. Also a great location adjacent to Melbourne's great StKilda area and beach. An easy wander down to the quirky cosmopolitan Acland Street or Fitzroy Street areas with plenty of cafes and shops, and a great beach and pier opposite.

Stayed here for 2 nights - comfortable room, great location close to many cafes, tram stop outside, only issue I had was the shower, it was slippery to the point of feeling very unsafe, however I used a bath towel to stand on.

We stayed here for a two week stay whilst visiting our daughter. Our room overlooked the beach and was a good size, everything we needed for our stay, tea, coffee, milk was refilled each day. It was a nice five to ten minute walk to bars, coffee shops and eating places, the tram stop was just across the road which...

I usually stay more in town when visiting Melbourne but I was coming in mid-Feb when temperatures can be as high as 45C, and from experience knowing the sea breezes help staying cool chose to stay at Novotel St Kilda. I was there five nights and had a very pleasant stay. The staff were all without exception very friendly and...

Descent location, you cross the street and you will reach the beach. 10/20 minutes walk to where to coffee shops and bars are. Chilled area, not much things to do around, but the essentials are there.
