Sails is an excellent place to stay with a great outlook on the water and well positioned. Staff were very helpful but being in a regional location maybe didn't quite have the polish that would be expected in a property at that price in a city location. That is just a regional matter I feel, not to mention the wide shortage of experienced hospitality staff. All in all, great.

Hi David, thanks for your 5-star review! We appreciate you taking the time to notice what we did well and an area in which we can improve. Having worked in several city hotels, it's nice working in a regional area where we can be friendly but formal. But it seems we may have missed the mark a little on your stay so this will certainly be passed onto our leadership to pass onto our team. Looking forward to welcoming you back to Sails!

Before deciding on a room with a balcony ask what part of the property you are overlooking. No point looking at a carpark or shopping centre and paying the extra for a balcony you won't use. Apart from that everything else was awesome.
