Have you any idea what amazing staff you have! Ben, on the front desk was very welcoming and couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect. He went out of his way to make us comfortable when we had a small issue which was dealt with quickly and efficiently. The waitresses at morning breakfast were great with our little grandson and also provided him with a box of toys to play with. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The room and ensuite were very clean and well appointed. Bed was comfortable, towels were fluffy and amenities were good quality. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or book this place again.

We came here for a wedding in the beautiful central courtyard. It was outstanding. It's just a beautiful spot for a small wedding. Utterly perfect, in fact. Gorgeous garden setting with nice light coming in and lovely plants all around. I'm not sure you can get a much nicer spot. And, the staff here were exceptional throughout, especially the young woman server from near Reading and the young chap (also from the UK) on the main bar. They were outstanding. Both were so happy and pleasant and just so service oriented. This is an excellent venue with great staff. We'd happily come here any time

My favourite Hotel in Melbourne. Great location, the rooms are classy and modern with a cool style. Staff and service are amazing and the food at the Prince Bar and restaurant is always tasty and on point.

First of all, the good. The location is excellent and the interior (front bar) clean and nice. Service was good as well. The negative is really just one thing, but it's pretty big. They've changed the name on the exterior to "Kween" (of Wales) and put up gay colouring which I didn't see when I went in. It was almost a Blue Oyster moment although to be entirely fair, it didn't feel that way when I was there. I'm afraid that the "in your face" naming is a turn off and not family friendly. I feel they should respect the hotels heritage and drop the "in your face" stuff. Then I think you'll find the place will appeal to everyone. That said, thank you to the staff: they were great.

This hotel has a lot of history and lends a nostalgic feel. We stayed in the corner room overlooking the bay and Fitzroy St. comfortable, nice balcony, big bath and lounge area. All good but maybe time for a freshen up, without loosing the classic deco vibe.

We had a fantastic stay at the prince - the hotel itself is lovely but above all else the service was exceptional. The staff were able to accommodate an early check in and also extended checkout for us too. It was my birthday whilst we were there and they really went out of their way to make it special. Ben and Deborah in particular were super helpful. We're sad to be leaving and will definitely come back when we are next in Melbourne!

I would like a job here please at least as a manager. As soon as I walked in. The interior was stunning, the room unlike any standard hotel room. It was bigger and the ceiling were higher. I'm telling you right now. Forget all the other reviews (sorry guys) this place yeah ok could use a little more lighting down the halls but it's amazing . And room service is great food! Feels relaxing even if you work here .

Dined in the intimate back bar which was perfect for us seeking a quiet space to converse. The main dining/bar area had bar access and screens to watch the footy and a full menu which we were also able to order from in the back room. The wine selection must be one of the best in the country. Seriously. The Somme was accommodating and helpful and the staff attentive and engaging but unobtrusive. Exactly what we were after with added penache.

Superior room with balconies are delightful, with gorgeous views of the bay, distant CBD and Fitzroy Street. The only issue is lack of soundproofing with constant late night noise, particularly in the 'inner' rooms that don't face out onto the street. Pay extra for a Superior room facing towards Fitzroy Street. Happy, friendly staff and decent prices. Unbeatable location unless you need to be in the centre of the city or clear across on the other side of town.

Steak night? Not worth it! $27 for a 150gm butchers cut, 10 chips in a cup, and two leaves of iceberg in a bowl with some radish drowned in dressing.
Red wine sauce? Very runny. Pass!
Cider, Berties? Yuk!
Going home to cook a proper dinner now, with a proper cider! Mercury. Bye!

Nice stay! The staff were friendly, helpful, & welcoming. We stayed in the boutique room, it was smaller than expected and we were disappointed that the pool area was not open during the autumn months. The room could do with a deep clean but nonetheless we had a good experience & would recommend!

Great venue for the wedding reception.
Food was excellent. Service was very good.
Rooms were good.....Roomy.. Though could have had a chest of drawers.... And a bigger tv that I could cast to.
Also the room we had had a raised wooden platform for the bed area.... Could be a bit of a hazard if you needed to get up in the middle of the night.... Bit if a trip hazard.

Had our wedding reception at the Prince. The venue is at the atrium full of light, big glazing wall, beautiful indoor plants and table set up. The service is top tier, the event team Ella is very responsive, Tara and Hannah served us during the reception night they are amazing! Had a wonderful night, highly recommended.

My favourite place to eat.. casual in the bar or more formal in the restaurant. Food is fabulous, share plates or great size meals that never disappoint, and the wine list is diverse , perfect pairing with 5 star food.

Stayed for 3 nights. Hotel staff were lovely and attentive. Rooms look lovely but need some maintenance. The rooms were noisy, I expected some noise from the bar area but was not anticipating the 2 weddings back to back on Fri & Sat (music till midnight) or the early vacuuming in the hallway at 8am.

We had our wedding and wedding recovery at The Prince last week. It was honestly perfect, and we wouldn't have changed a thing! The entire team at The Prince, from the events planning team, on the day team and the bar staff at our recovery were all absolutely amazing, so kind and professional, and so helpful.
We were hindered a little by rain before our ceremony but the quick thinking team alongside our stylist had everything moved undercover and it was still perfect. Nothing was a problem to the team, and everyone was clearly there to make sure that we and our guests had a wonderful time!
Let's talk food and wine... UNREAL. We were lucky to have a beautiful tasting of the entire wedding menu which was seriously delicious, and then on the night we had so many guests absolutely raving about the food.
We also stayed at the hotel for two nights which was perfect. Very comfortable rooms with gorgeous facilities, it really was the best way to kick off married life!
Honestly, if you're looking for a chic inner-city venue to have your wedding or special event, look no further than The Prince!

As some who loves the heat, the band room gets too hot. Large queues for most things. However, always a fun time and grand staff.

Over the years, the Prince hotel formerly known as the Prince of Wales has embodied the character of St Kilda. We attended the public bar for dinner and had exception service, great food and delicious drinks. Love the interior how they have managed to keep the old charm with a fresh modern feel.
We ate chicken schnitzel with fries and cauliflower salad. Will definitely return especially when the weather heats up!

Unfortunately we went for dinner and found that they had absolutely ZERO vegetarian main meals. We asked the staff to check with the chef if anything could be made and the kitchen staff refused and suggested we eat off the side salad menu. Really disappointing to see no support for a climate conscious diet in a large pub with a reasonable size menu (God forbid if you were a vegan...almost no snacks or salads would fit your diet let alone a main meal)

On the plus side front of house staff were super friendly.

Went to enjoy a Father's Day breaku, I ordered the eggs on toast plus additional items such as mushrooms & bacon. The additional items were another $10 where the bacon was so thin & tasteless with barely two small rations, the two mushrooms were hard & almost like plastic. Fortunately, the staff deducted this from my bill

Great service from Tom. Superb food from the chef. Exquisite wine list.
We had the 700g rib, pork (w crackle) and seafood.
We shared 2 desserts; the lemon tart & choc fudge. Nicely balaced!
Could not fault a thing.
It was a great night.
Great wine bar round the side.
PS. Please visit the Rest-rooms separately (wink wink).

Loved it . Great venue for the wedding I attended , and staying in house was brilliant. Lovely staff and breakfast downstairs the next morning was a perfect cure for the indulgence of the previous evening

One Perfect Stay!
Wow! I absolutely loved my overnighter here. Started with beers outside with my buddy at 5pm, tea elsewhere, then nightcap in the upstairs bar.

Bed was extraordinary comfortable. Very nice decor, magic bathroom, & so quiet & peaceful...

The staff are obviously very happy to be part of the place & are cheerful & content.

I finished off with chilli crab scrambled eggs which was absolutely fantastic. 10/10, which is exactly my mark for the whole experience. Thank you to Ben in reservations when I mucked him around a bit due to circumstances beyond control. And to all the staff who looked after me, not one issue could I find. Can't wait till April 21, when we ll do it all again!! ??'?

We had our post-wedding-ceremony dinner here in the Sainthill room last week. It was truly an amazing evening that we will never forget! It was immediately obvious that all the staff took their work seriously, and did all they could to ensure that all of our guests were well looked after all evening. Plus, the food was DELICIOUS! Everyone left absolutely stuffed, raving about how tasty it all was - from oysters to indulgent cookie desserts. Thank you to Sarah & the rest of The Prince team for an incredible night. We are SO glad we chose The Prince!
