This hotel is one block from the Esplanade. They have free parking and free Wi-Fi. The room is spacious enough and clean. Most of the staff was good, the others a bit stand-offish, but nowhere near the point of rudeness. One complaint-the floors outside the rooms are tile so when the housekeepers roll their carts, it is noisy. No problem... More

The staff was helpful and friendly. We had a standard room with a king bed. The room was large. It contained a love seat coffee table, 2 chairs, a desk and TV stand beside the bed. The bed comfortable. We enjoyed the balcony with wicker chairs and table. The room was clean. The internet was fast.

My understanding is that this place has just changed hands which would explain the injection of capital it seems to be getting. When I was there the exterior was freshly painted and the roof was being seriously made over. The exterior ambiance is relaxed tropical and graceful.. The well established Lipstick palms which I am told are slow growing seriously... More

I booked this place through an offer from Jetstar. Clean, good breakfast, bed was ok. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the location was hard to beat. One block from the Esplanade. .Somewhere I read the rooms had been upgraded....mine had missed out badly. Still with the dark original 60's wood. I am visually impaired and needed to... More

Stayed 3 separate nights in July in 3 different 'tower' rooms. We liked the old style tropical feel of this place. All of our rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean, though the none of the aircons were effective - we slept with the french windows open and the ceilng fans on. Great location close to the Esplanade. Weird experience booking... More

Very close to The Esplanade and all amenities. The building was very pretty and landscape was nice. Bed was very comfortable, room was ok size. My only complaint was the room smelt of stale smoke which with fans going for three days failed to remove.

The rooms are very large, bathrooms a touch old but everything is clean. Breakfasts are ok yet nothing special. Staff is very friendly and goes the extra mile for you. Big plus, the hotel has a washing machine so if you travel around for $9 everything can be clean!!!

Hotel rooms large and roomy with good facilities and plenty of fluffy white towels. Relaxing pool with loungers and towels available. Cold drinks available behind reception. All the staff behind reception, dining room and... More

Great Location close to everything Nice breakfast dining area The room had louvres and let in light, you couldn't open the windows because they were fixed. This hotel has potential and needs a good tidy up. Bathroom was tired. Staff were mostly pleasant.
