Good breakfast selection, friendly staff. The hotel is rather old and looks a little tired despite several refurbs. The beds were surprisingly comfortable, however. Close to many good quality restaurants on the Esplanade. Nice pool, plenty of fresh towels poolside, but we suffered a little from sand fly bites -- beware!

Great location. Room a bit ordinary. Kettle didn’t work. Bathroom plumbing in the dodgy side. Otherwise reasonable.

Pros: Staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make our stay fantastic
Cons: Bathroom is small for what you pay for. Compared to other hotels, a mini bar should be a must if you're paying $350 a night for a room.
Location: Fantastic location and close to the wharf and the shopping centre
Although this hotel is rated 5 stars, unless you pay for an Executive room which includes access to the Executive Lounge (and which is twice the cost of a Deluxe King room), the other rooms should only be classed as 3.5 starts because there's no mini bar, the bathroom is really small (with the shower over the bath). We had a great stay, but the hotel is looking a bit tired.

Good except for the $10 charge to get our car out of the carpark and the fact that our door lock failed and had to be reset
