Amazing property at the beautiful St Kilda. Great location, across the road from the beach. Free car parking onsite, the hotel is trendy and our room was lovely. The bed was just as comfortable as ours at home! Which is rare for a hotel. In room service for breakfast was quick and delicious. We will stay here again.
