  1. i’ve been lucky enough to stay or dine in some of these hotels and they are good – the problem with hotels down under are that there are so many good ones now the hard decision is picking one in each city.

  2. If you stay in the Prince in St Kilda take time out to visit the Stokehouse restaurant right on the water -the food and atmosphere is brilliant and the view of the water is fab. Definitely worth a visit!

  3. I agree with Irene,there are a lot of really great luxury places to stay in new Zealand, pick a good travel agent who knows NZ well and they can makes sure you have an amazing holiday.

  4. I definitely recommend a feed at the Stokehouse, or Donovans which is next door, when you are in St Kilda – Melbourne.
