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

We stayed for 2 nights after our wedding as a treat in the Lagoon King Room in the new hotel with swim up access to the room! It was divine!! The rooms are very spacious with huge bathroom, your own deck overlooking the pool with private access to the water. Unforgettable stay, highly recommended!!

I stayed at SkyCity in December for a night on business. I stayed in the old part of the hotel, and while you could tell it was a bit tired, the room had been refurbished and was quite modern. As others have said, I had a small balcony, but the door was locked. This didn't worry me too much as... More

The newly built lagoon precinct offers a beach, swim up bar, and large lagoon pool to swim around in. The ground level rooms in this area offer a special benefit of being able to access the lagoon pool directly from your private verandah. Spend the day lazing in the pool and then laying in the sun on your poolside lounge.... More
