Just spent 7 night at Palms City Resort in a superior motel room. It was a bit dated ( so don't expect modern looking) but was clean and well serviced daily. Walk in shower in 244 was a bonus, air con was quiet also has overhead fans... We asked for room away from hotel noise because we had read the... More

Looks good on paper, but just awful in person. I paid the extra money to stay in the bungalow style villa for the use of the balcony and the kitchen....the kitchen fridge door hit the bed when opened and the balcony was the only place I could get wifi....The walls were so thin, I could hear the man in the...

Nice resort with a lovely pool area, nice gardens and great location. Very basic room on the second floor, no lift and no offer of assistance with bags at all. Two ladies, one in their 50's the other in their 70's and it was not a pleasant experience to go up the two flights of stairs. The single bed I... More

We stayed 2 nights in a standard room. The hotel grounds are lovely and well kept, the room was basic but clean and reception was polite and helpful. Whilst it was well located, loud music from nearby entertainment venues on both nights (even though we had changed rooms the second night) meant that we had difficulty getting to sleep.

Very clean bathroom and comfy bed. Great location with lush gardens that shaded our verandah. Only negative was the loud music/entertainment that came from pub... More

We stayed at the end of May. Unfortunately our little boy got sick, but the room service staff were great working around this and trying to cheer up our boy. The day staff on reception were also wonderful, finding us a doctor to take him to. The hotel is very close to the restaurant strip on Mitchell Street, and is... More

We stayed in a Duplex Villa for 6 nights the first week in June. Room was tidied each day, shower and basin cleaned and toiletries replaced when necessary. Travellers (cms941) should read the Resort guidelines - dishes are the clients' responsibility but if the BBQ is used, that will be cleaned. Reception staff advised on shuttle buses for the market...
