Comfortable hotel in a great location for exploring St Kilda and surrounding areas. Great view across the ocean. Easy area to walk along the beachfront. Sunday market. Lots of restaurants nearby to cater for all foodies.

There is nothing Novotel grade about this hotel. Sub par rooms, smelly carpet and stains on the floor. The toilet doesn't flush properly and the shower is rusty. Room is small and cheep furniture. Water bottle is $9. Seriously? Elevator takes a long time and the pool you see in the photo is stretched to look twice the size of... More

wifi is expensive and slow. they charge you multiple and cheat with the used data. it's not possible to open the windows. the interior is old and crappy - never again. it resembles more a jail than a hotel. prison cells and depressive beige brownish colors complete the picture. such a rip off!

On the beach and right in the mix, the Novotel, St Kilda is a prime site for all St Kilda offers. Staff are friendly, especially in the Restaurant, Overall this is a little expensive for the standard of presentation and value adds on offer. The building is old, corridors narrow, walls in some areas, shabbily dirty and unrepaired and there... More
