We’ve been a proud part of St Kilda’s landscape since 1863. Back then, The Prince Hotel was a humble guesthouse boasting beautiful bayside views. After a rebuild in 1936, we became known as one of Melbourne’s grandest hotels – a mecca for locals and tourists, artists and musos, barflies and brides, and everyone in between who were inspired by the famous St Kilda sprint.

What has changed over the years is the extent of what we offer. Award-winning restaurants. An iconic band room. One of Melbourne’s most LGBTQIA-friendly bars. A function space; a day spa; great eats; the list goes on.

One thing that’s never changed is our commitment to the community. Sure, we’ve won awards, but more importantly we have been a steadfast place for the people.

Today, with open doors and open arms, The Prince remains a cornerstone of St Kilda. A destination for all who appreciate a place of local character; we are The People’s Prince.
