My choice when away on Business in Melbourne. Ideally priced. Friendly, professional and helpful staff as always. Clean and tidy rooms. Wonderful central location... easy walking distance to tram, restaurants and the St Kilda Esplanade.

Dear elizabethlD2142UE, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Our fabulous location in the heart of bustling St Kilda, moments from the tram stop and St Kilda's famous restaurant scene, does unfortunately mean that some of our street facing room types do receive the street noise. As you know we have many different room types to...

Only the noise from the tram and bars around there is nothing to comment about but the price is what its tell the quality. The price just matches the quality I get. My family stayed from the bottom to top. Your money will tell you where you are.

I was terribly disappointed with the cleanliness of the two bedroom and the noise levels of the one bedroom. The location was fantastic as it was close to everything and an ideal destination enroute to the airport.

A very nice hotel in St Kilda, close to everthing including the Skybus stop, fairly quiet and great staff, very obliging and helpful. Only downside this time is that they do not do breakfast in their cafe on weekends anymore.

Good value. Great location, close to tram stops, skybus drop off/pickup and tour pickups. Friendly staff. Having laundry facilities was a bonus. Our room was on ground floor so entrance was from the back. Not sure if access to 1st and 2nd floor rooms was via stairs or could be accessed through hotel via lifts. Might be a good idea...
