Downside: **the receptionists might need a bit more training, the one checked me in barely smile, and next morning the morning... More

I stayed here with family. While the room was just a room with a double and a single bed, it was clean, comfortable and very quiet. It was a home away from home located in a lovely position on the harbour with beautiful views out over the marina. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Coffee in the downstairs lounge...

Stayed here for one night primarily because it was one of the only hotels I could find with a gym. The clarion describes it as a "fully equipped air conditioned fitness centre" which it is not - there are pieces of equipment (one of which was out of order) and some cheap kettle bells in a room about 3m x...

This place we have stayed at a few times with mixed reviews, you have to weigh up the taxi fares back into town if you stay out here on the Marina along with the cost of staying and add breakfast on as well, it soon mounts up to quite a few dollars. Due to the trade in the region reducing... More

I have stayed at the Clarion multiple times and this last visit was my best yet. Breakfast was beautiful, the tea in particular is very special, and help yourself hollandaise sauce always gets my vote! The renovations have expanded Latitude 21 so that the space which was in the weather is now fully enclosed in glass, so you can enjoy... More

Stayed here one night on a business trip just before Christmas. Receptionist didnt smile, washing machine in room didnt work. Ordered room service for Dinner food was mediocre at best. This not a 4 star hotel, save your money and stay somewhere else.

Paying well over $300+ a night boasting 180 views we were given a room that looked directly into restaurant roof in front of the hotel and to the left was a wonderful view straight into the car park and skip bins! Only had glimpses of ocean given the harbour wall and restaurant roof. Was moved one floor up! 10% increase... More
