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. The window replacement program is an essential refurbishment between the owners and the body corporate, the replacement of the windows will guarantee we maintain the quality of product our guests have come to recognize and enjoy. ALL agents were informed of the renovations and notices and... More
