We were grateful to have accommodation within walking distance to the event, but thats where any positives about this place end. When we walked into our room (114) we were greeted with a a very bad stench (a... More

Stayed here in a 2 bedroom apartment for a couple nights with friends. It was spacious, comfortable & good price. We were at the back of the premises so off the old highway. It seemed like thin walls as you could hear people in other rooms. I'd stay here again though

We have stayed at this hotel on two occasions now. Both times have been positive experiences. First time right at the front overlooking the water and second right at the back. On both occasions rooms were both spacious and clean and have never experience the front office staff to be unhelpful or rude. As far as value for money goes,... More

While I wasn't expecting the Ritz for the money, I couldn't help be disapointed with the accomodation and service.

As I had expected, the decor was in desperate need of a refresh but was clean and reasonably comfortable. You can't... More

We loved the kitchen and the pool area, especially the nice hot spa. The housekeeping lacked, the carpet wasn't clean when we moved the furniture to suit us, And getting fresh towels was difficult although we stayed a week. We finally got some the afternoon before we left. Good value for the price though, and we'll go back next trip.... More

We won 5 nights accommodation at Harbour Side Resort.

Paid $130 a night through booking.com and next day it was $100 a night. thats just bad luck i guess. On arrival, there is a sign advertising rooms from $79 per night out the front, which I'm told by locals has been there for years. Booked a twin room and was told its an extra $25 for sheets for the... More
