Editorial review:

This might be a big, generic hotel chain, but the fact that it’s a stone’s throw away from St. Kilda beach, along with the accompanying views, makes this a great spot. Not only that, but you’re also not far from the area’s twin action-packed streets.

    Locations n beach view

    Comfy bed, great shower.1

    No instructions for the air conditioning and we couldn't work it out to get the room warmer.

    Walked out on the jetty and saw the wildlife

    Breakfast too expensive

  • Couple

    The tram is right on the doorstep. St Kilda Beach is steps away. There are many bars and eateries within walking distance and the hotel staff were very friendly. they even gave us a complimentary bottle of bubbly to help us celebrate our 5 year anniversary!

    The hotel room that we stayed in felt quite small and dark.

  • Older travelers

    location is great, easy walk to resturants bars beach. clean spacious room that we stayed in.11.00am checkout extra hour makes it so more relaxing we enjoyed the staycant

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The convenience of access to the City and to St Kilda and its beach.

    The breakfast room was not sufficient for the number of people at peak time.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    the reception staff where great, very helpful and friendly and could not do enough.

    the cleanliness of the room left a lot to be desired. The bathroom has mould all on the grouting around the top of the bath. Towels had marks on them, and also the room service dishes were left outside our door for over 24 hours.Also found the room a bit too small for 3 days and 2 people.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The view, the comfy bed, room size, the brekky, the proximity to the palais

    the drab corridors

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    convenient location for 'concert'; quiet

    disinterested staff at restaurant

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The room booked was not the room I expected

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Reception appears overly focused on themselves. The chain in Australia tries to gain all benefits from credit cards during reservation and check in but collects surcharges from customers when using the card for payment. Membership in another Accor brand was not acknowledged. Rooms are small. Hotel was evacuated by a blind fire alarm, weekend staff had no idea how to handle the situation.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    A very nice clean room and an excellent breakfast with plenty of choices, fresh fruit and cereals and excellent hot dishes

    The rooms were quite small with one sink for a double room. The swimming pool was tiny and the worst thing was there was no safety rail down the steps into the pool. One young child slipped and hit his nose quite badly. I did not venture into the pool for this reason.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The position of the hotel and the view from our room, the easy access to the city from immediately outside by tram.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The staff where good. The restaurant staff in particular where friendly

    Check out was a little frustrating. People where just gathering around the desk and one person checking out just decided he was most important and pushed his way through when clearly there were other people waiting

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The location was good, staff were friendly, transport was a stones throw from the front door.

    The rooms aren't sound proofed, so you could be heard speaking in the hallway.
