Positive Reviews


Great Location and Easy Access

Not only did a number of reviewers rave about the excellent location close to St Kilda beach, a number of reviews commented on how easy it was to move about the city from the free car parking and access to link roads around Melbourne.


Comfortable Beds

The size and the superior comfort of beds rated highly across several reviews with a number of people remarking that they got a great nights sleep at the hotel as the beds were some of the most comfortable they have ever stayed in .


Great Service

Some reviewers mentioned how satisfied guests were about the level of service they received at the hotel, with many guests saying that check-in was a breeze and their requests for help were handled swiftly by hotel staff.

Negative Reviews


Disappointing Room, Paper-thin walls

Some reviewers left this property feeling very disappointed by the rooms as they felt that they were tiny and were too small to be comfortable.  Some guests also thought that due to the small surroundings the sound-proofing was less than ideal and as a result guests had a disrupted nights sleep.


Weak Water Pressure

Some guests felt that the water pressure in the showers was particularly bad given the Rydges hotel chain's reputation. Reviewers commented that they had not had similar problems at other Rydge's properties and felt like this one was slipping a bit.


Grubby Hotel in Need of a Refurb

Some reviewers felt that the hotel was showing signs of wear and tear and was in need of a good deep clean and overhaul of its furniture and common areas.
