We have just arrived home for a short break, and stayed at The Dorchester. I can't express how wonderful the location and view is. The building is right on the beach, with no roads to cross. We also really loved the location because it was very quiet. It's only about a 12 minute walk to Surfers, so you are not very far, but you don't have to deal with all the noise at night. All you can hear are the waves crashing, it's the best sedative, we slept so well there.The beds were very comfy, no sore back in the morning. The apartment was very spacious, heaps of room to move. Did I mention that view? I can't get over how awesome it is. There is also a pool and BBQ area, which was fantastic.
I would have to say that my only complaint as with the previous review was the cleanliness. The bed covers were stained, this grossed me out a bit, so I washed them and put them through the dryer, but they were permanent stains. The kitchen bench top was grubby. We even found a peice of frozen steak in the freezer. So the cleaners obviously don't do a great deal, which is a bit of a let down. I'am pretty fussy and I would stay there again, but I would just give it a good clean myself and probably insist, the bed covers are changed.
