Stayed here for three weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The staff are very friendly and always very helpful.
I stayed in room 2302 in the new wing and found the room to be of a good size, the bed was huge and the shower was excellent.
Breakfast was average but perfectly edible.
There is a convenient shop in the lobby of the hotel selling cold drinks, cigarettes, snacks and medicines. However, I found the shop to be a little expensive. For example a tin of Bintang costs 37,500IDR and a packet of cigarettes cost 30,000IDR. If you leave the Harris resort, turn right and walk 100 yards up the road there is a shop that sells these same items for 10,000IDR (Bintang) and 13,000IDR (Cigarettes)
Taxis are available from outside the hotel - negotiate your price before getting in. A taxi to Nagoya should only cost around 100,000 IDR.
The nearest ATM's are at the nearby Holiday Inn or at the Ferry Terminal. Both are around 10 minutes on foot from the hotel, or 2 minutes and 50,000IDR in a taxi.
There are a number of bars nearby at the waterfront near to the ferry terminal. The best of these are New Place, Aussie Bar and Kevin's Bar.
