The breakfast buffet is I must say one of the best I've had so far (and I've been to quite a few in other countries)!!! Highly recommended if you're travelling with family as it is quiet, and has that rural... More

The Waterfront Hotel was excellent from the moment of arrival. The front line staff were very responsive, friendly and helpful. The room was excellent for our needs. The room service was excellent. All staff in all areas were always welcoming with a warm and genuine smile. You were made to feel most welcome. We will definitely be back to stay.

Our stay was a memorable one. The environment was very relaxing, a perfect place to unwind. As for our room, it was fair old but nice view facing the shore...i am very particular with the toilettes wherever i go and i would say the toilette need a rennovation. Thats all thank you!
