We stayed at the Peninsula in a 2 bedroom apartment for 7 nights in room 11A. The apartment was quite spacious and in a good location however the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The apartment looked as though it was not dusted in quite some time. Dust on the plants inside the air conditioning, furnitures etc. Very unhygienic... More

I am sorry to hear the apartment did not meet your expectation. Due to the high standards required of our our contract cleaning company, issues such as these are rare occurrences, I regret that you did not come down and report these items to reception as we would have had the housekeeper go up and rectify the problems, I note...

I chose the Peninsula Hotel because it was on the beach front and I paid extra for a deluxe room but when I arrived there I got a very standard room. Just because the owners, have painted the rooms, updated the furniture and put in "afew" new appliances, does not make it a "Deluxe". When I fronted the reception and... More

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor. Peninsula operates under a strata title as all our units are individually owned therefore the decor in each unit is done by the owners.

I always stay here with family and we have done so for 15 years. This year the room we always stay in was renovated and even better than previous stays. I love this place. The pool, sauna and grounds are always immaculate and are lovely to spend time in.

I extend my sincere apologies for the discomfort that was caused during your stay.
