Stayed at Skycity for 1 night in the hotel (not the lagoon building). The hotel is looking a little dated, but the rooms have been kept looking fresh. The king bed was big and really comfortable, and we also had a huge spa bath in the bathroom. I thought the bath bombs on offer to use were a great touch... More

We went there for a business trip and am going again at the end of this month. The surroundings is exquisite (ie if you love the sea/ocean). Nice place to relax for a holiday but alas I was there for work. The gym is really very small and not well equipped which was a shame. The room is spacious enough... More

Decided on sky city all you can eat lunch buffet at under $20 pp was pretty good. The person on the register was very slow considering he was a team Leader. He took over 5 minutes to serve 2 ladies then didn't even apologise for the wait and was rude When we finally got in and approached the buffet at... More

This is the second time we have stayed in this part of the casino. The first time was when we got married in 1988. While it is old it was still fine for an overnight stay. Room was comfortable, it had a little balcony but didnt have much of a view so didn't use it. We found that the room... More

I stayed two nights in the old section and it is exactly that - OLD. The rooms would have been OK 30 years ago but are totally out dated now. The bathroom was very small and couldn't fit two people at once. The room also had a very strong musty smell which was unpleasant. The breakfast buffet was pretty good... More

This hotel's website offers complementary parking but what they really mean is use of the free public car park in the casino next door, the hotel car park is now only available for a fee of $15. This is inconvenient on a number of levels, firstly you have to carry your bags across from the casino car park on check... More

A good place to get a feed then head into the casino. I went to ilpiardo for a bit to eat first then went and had a gamble and has a good night out with friends. The sand bar is also a good place for Friday afternoon drinks but is a little expensive
