For $199 a night I expected a bit more. The room was noisy we were told it wasn't noisy but we heard everyone car and truck. The fan in the bathroom even when turned off was still noisy you could hear it with the door closed. In the bar fridge was someone half eaten ice creamin the freezer, when we... More

I stayed here for one night on on a business trip and was left feeling very underwhelmed by the hotel. The place is a maze to find your room, the building is tired, and the service was average. The room was spacious but again was very dated. The restaurant produced delicious mains for dinner and the dessert was also quirky... More

The Kingsgate is definitely showing its age. However, all the basics are there - comfy bed, good bathroom and heat pump. The breakfast was adequate and the Caesar salad was certainly tasty if a little bizarre - prawns and deep fried egg. Overall satisfactory.

This hotel, although a little dated with the décor and long corridors was good for walking to town , although the second day it poured with rain, and we ended up getting a taxi to town and back in the evening. The facilities, pool, sauna etc. were great to have, and although we didn't have any meals there, found it... More

We stayed one night here and it was just great. Had the superior king room overlooking the basin so had a great view. Room was very clean, bed was so comfortable and loved the spa bath! Had dinner at Portobello Restaurant downstairs which was just fantastic! Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for one night and travelled with my husband, 4 yr old and 9 mth old. They have two different types of two-beds rooms - 2 single beds or 1 double +1 single. The later suits us perfectly (they have baby cot for hire, we just didnt want to pay extra). As usual, Milliennium hotel's group of hotels... More

I stayed here recently for a couple of nights with colleagues during a work visit. The location is very good - easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. The room was a little bit dated, although it seems the bathroom had been refurbished with tiling on the walls and a reasonably new shower cubical installed (no bathtub- which was absolutely... More

Stayed at the Kingsgate for one night. Lovely comfortable bed, clean room and super fluffy thick towels.''Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Good experience all round. Close to the city and you can easily walk to the lovely harbourside cafes.

This hotel is large with everything you will need. It is a little bit tired, but clean and functional. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The marina over the road is very picturesque. It is hand for the airport and a 5 minute walk into the town centre.
