well this hotel is definitely well situated, by the beach, and close to shops. Next door to the Q1 building and one block from the light rail station, and we had a great view from our apartment on the 17th floor. Awesome really. But that's where the positives finish, the whole place is under renovation, that's ok if you are... More

The owners and the body corporate for Peninsula apartments have undertaken the renovations and it is out of The Mantra Group's control.

We have just returned (reluctantly) home after 7 nights here. Despite the construction work, which we barely noticed, it was the best accommodation we have stayed in. We were on the 10th floor with stunning views. The staff were outstanding, the facilities faultless and we could not have wished for a better location. We will most certainly return next year,...

Spacious 2 bedroom apartment that catered for all our needs. Unfortunately front desk staff very unhelpful but overall facilities good, although a little outdated. Hopefully all the jackhammering and renovations will make everything better as thinking of returning next year.

We three adults and one child have just returned from a week at the peninsula apartment. It was nice and spacious, we loved the views, and the convenience of being so close to everything.

We had booked in to stay at the Peninsula for 10 days. We arrived to find the place was undergoing major renovations - construction hoarding all over the front of the property, plastic over the carpets, grime on our hotel door and concrete drilling coming through the hotel walls... Seriously concrete drilling through the walls on a holiday? Jack hammers... More
