Nearly Four months in ANY hotel is a long, long time and , even in the best certain aspects will pall and irritate! However , the particular hotel has many "redeeming" features including a great location alongside Five Cowrie Creek. My 9th Floor suite afforded me glorious views and a never ending fascination with the array of superb leisure boats... More

The breakfast buffet was good, though the options were limited. The building doesn't seem to be designed for a hotel originally and the elevators are tiny. The bed is comfortable, the rooms are clean, and the staff are friendly enough. But the air conditioner stopped working in the middle of the night, and water went off in the morning.

I booked through our corporate travel center only to learn upon arrival that they did not accept Corporate American Express as a form of payment. Nowhere in their website do they indicate methods for payment. Only after calling back home to my wife was I able to secure enough funds in my credit card to charge my room. I had... More

This is a well-managed property with a good GM and staff who are motivated to work hard for their guests. The rooms have free internet, the food is edible - they managed to make a perfect cheese and tomato toasty for me - and there is wine available by the glass. Oh and the gym has the best running machine... More

Stayed here for a week in one of the suites. The suite was big and spacious but the furniture is very outdated. There were stains on the seats and the cushions smelt bad. If the hotel could update their suites it will be much better. Apart from that the staff were polite and friendly apart from one occasion when the... More

Our over night stay with our young family was superb. The newly refurbished rooms are really nice and the staff were extremely helpful with the children. The service in the restaurant was fantastic they really attended to us well. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again.
