Comfortable, good pool, convenient location - a short walk to the waterfront or mindil beach markets and lots of dining options nearby in Mitchell St. Close to the supermarket too

Fabulous location within walking distance of good cafes, restaurants, shops and facilities. Rooms are clean and spacious and I appreciate that towels and linen wasn’t changed daily as I don’t like the waste when hotels do that. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Great stay👍

Slightly disappointing The air conditioning unit gurgled and burbled most of the time when running and with this constant noise making it hard to sleep. Towels not often replaced. Floor never vacuumed. If you are staying more than a single night your room is not made up until late afternoon, often after we had returned after a day out. No staff on duty after 6pm.

While we wish you had a better experience, we do thank you for your feedback and we will pass this onto the team for action. Thank you, H on Smith. Sincerely,

Very happy with H on Smith overall - great location, friendly helpful staff and food selection very good. My only complaint was about the mattress on our bed, which I didn't mention until our last day, if I'd asked earlier the staff could have changed it.

Overall it was good. Just a little things like the public toilets always looked untidy, Limited drinks stocked in restaurant bar, housekeeping was hit & miss with restocking items, the edges where the pool water level was needed a good scrub, I used the gym twice & the spray supplied for covid cleaning was pretty much empty, at checkout the receptionist had already settled the account by pre charging my card but perhaps I wanted to use another? Or cash? Don’t bother with the creme brûlée - major disappointment. Struck a particularly rude bar attendant too. The room had a very strange awkward layout with the location of the tv, built in desk & where the bed & lounge were located. Overall enjoyed my time but lots of little things that could have made it heaps better.
