First of all the reception was cold and unwelcoming which is so unusual for Australia. Having not been to the baths before this was not a good start. It took the receptionist several minutes to stop looking at her screen and acknowledge me. I tried...More

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely morning swiming and relaxing in the spa during our visit to St Kilda. The pool entry was $13 a person. We had lunch at the Beachcomber Cafe on the beach after our swim.

What a shocker of a place, dirty, grimy, the staff don’t really want to be there as they are on their phone the whole time. Dirty smelly change rooms. Better off going for a swim in the bay.

Had breakfast. Coffee fruut toast and croque monsieur which were ok. Plenty of staff but took some time to get our order taken. We were not in a hurry so that was ok but unusual.
