Booked a table, arrived and shown to a table at the entrance of the restaurant where everyone lined up and walked past. I asked to be moved and we were moved 2 tables over (even though other tables were available). The quality of the food was terrible. The range of food available was very very limited. The desserts were horrible.... More

When I booked, I had not realised that my room would be in the old section of the Casino. Honestly, when I checked in, the room smell was so unpleasant, I had to leave. I paid an extra 150 dollars a night to stay in new wing. The room was very pleasant and the lagoon pool was stunning. I thought... More

Nice place to stay. A little far out of city but would not have been a problem if they had advised us of their shuttle bus service, even when we were getting the desk to phone us taxis. Very limited choice of meals other than breakfast

Very helpful and accommodating reception staff. Good room, comfy and clean beds. Lovely balcony. Very poor room service, sad ham&cheese toastie, soggy chips, greasy spring rolls. Great pool. We had to check out at 12 noon and had the rest of the day to waste before our late night flight. We decided to chill by the pool and use the... More

Four of us attended the spa today for treatment and not one minor complain from any of us. The place is nice, the treatment were absolutely perfect and the staff were very nice, friendly and knew what they were doing. Can't wait to be back.

We stay at Skycity Casino as a bit of a short at-home getaway. So we have stayed here on and off over the last 15 years. We stayed in a peak period for two nights, but were offered a locals discount. CHECK-IN Whilst very busy, there welcome was professional but very cool. Understanding that perhaps the staff at the front... More
