An older hotel, with large rooms, large, comfortable beds with a choice of firm or soft pillows already on the bed when you arrive. We always find beds with a doona only, too hot, and our request for a top sheet was met immediately. The hotel has an ambiance of old colonial times - we had a corner room which... More

After more than 30 hours on the road (air), we wanted to check into a hotel that would be comfortable and uncomplicated. Le Meridien was perfect. The room was very spacious, we were upgraded to a sea view, the air conditioning was top-notch, and the staff were all pleasant, accommodating, and strove to be helpful. I know we could have...

We had a delightful three days, in a sea view room. We had great views over harbour, across to islands, in South China Sea. They were re-building the lobby, but still managed quality service, from when we arrived. While it meant a lift change, to get to our room, it really was no trouble.

Aside from the annoying renovation that required multiple confusing elevator switches without adequate signage, the rooms and lobby were worn, the toilet and shower leaked everywhere, remote control was broke, bed sheets were like sand paper, and air conditioning did not turn back after power outages.
