We are spending a night at Silvermine Hotel on Lantau island after we land in HK from Europe and before flying out the next day to Guilin. Two weeks later we return to HK for 4 nights. I am considering staying at Silvermine again as both location and hotel look great. It's quiet and peaceful, and only a 10 minute stroll to the ferry, from where it takes 30-40 minutes to Central. When I asked the question on another forum, I was told to stay in HK itself as Silvermine would require too much travelling. I'd like a second opinion, based on the following criteria, please: 1) We are not into light-life (we're a very energetic couple in our 60s); 2) we do want to do ALL the sights in HK (Victoria Peak, Kowloon, Repulse Bay, the Giant Buddha etc etc); 3) we'd like something not too expensive to stay but with atmosphere (Silvermine does seem to meet those criteria). Besides, although the there would be a ferry ride at both ends of the day for us to go places, isn't the ride really nice, with great views of the city etc? Thanks for some feedback! I'd really appreciate it!
