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 am happy that you came down to reception to voice your concerns and that one of our team members was able to allocate you a different room. I... More

stayed in a 2 bed 'deluxe' unit which was ok, nothing flash - wonder what a regular 2 bed unit would be like - furniture was dated, bathrooms and kitchen were quite nice though.

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.

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,...
