I have stayed at the Sails once before. 15 years ago. It is still a great spot, right on the water. They are currently undergoing some renovations. The noise didn't affect my room at all, but my sister's car got a bit of builders dust on it (just don't park right under the rooms, there is plenty of parking). The... More

This hotel is in a prime spot on the water, but really really needs a face lift. My one bedroom was small but ok for me, but i can imagine very unsuitable to many people. The room was very basic, the inroom dining choices minimal, limited to a few meal options and the same with wine choices.

My last review bagged Sails since the RYDGES takeover because initially they wouldn't recognise return visitors and offer discounted rooms. RYDGES haven't done much to improve the property since their recent takeover and visitors have complained about high prices for an aging property. Let me give you two important pieces of advice. Firstly, this place is magic provided you get... More

Sails needs a lift – literally. Who the heck would design an hotel with two levels and no lift? Who would sign off on it ….. and why? They might as well omit the front door. Anyway, that’s the way it is. Welcome! Now carry your cases up the stairs by yourself. Otherwise it’s pretty good. Got a bit of... More

I couldn’t agree with you more, a terrible design. The hotel was built in 1984 and why they didn’t install a lift then is beyond my understanding as well. I am sorry that the hotel staff didn’t offer any assistance, they normally do. I will discuss this with the front office team immediately. I am pleased you enjoyed the dining... More

Got a good deal and stayed over a weekend close to everything and was quiet and very clean pool and spa area were good and the restaurant very nice. There is a good well lit river walk around to the cbd and main beach and pub and club area but just in the right spot to avoid all the noise
