5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I stayed here just last week,feb 2013,for 4 nights,it was just *THE BEST* the rooms,the food,the service,cant fault it !!! you must go up to the rooftop pool,and spa,a view never to be forgotten,you may think the hotel is a little way out of the middle of kowloon but the shuttle bus is always on hand and only takes 10mins( and its free) so use it !!! there was no irons or hairdryers in the rooms,or at least i didnt find any ???? I was on the 6th floor with a harbour view,and what a view,it was also a smoking room,just ask!! I am a solo traveler but at no time did i ever feel un-at-ease, I will definatley stay here again!!!!

Room Tip: ask for a harbour view

Stayed here for 10 days in November 2012. Hotel itself was well appointed, if a little removed from the centre, although the courtesy buses were frequent and convenient. However, the wonderful views across the Harbour more than made up for this. The room was excellent and the service also. The food was good, although we only ate breakfast. Fortunately we had booked room and breakfast, because the food was very pricey which meant that my brother and sister with whom we were travelling walked down the road every morning to a coffee shop for
breakfast ! Our only small complaint was having to pay for HK$10 a day for wi-fi access - many hotels provide this free !

Room Tip: Well worth paying extra for a harbour view room.

stayed here for four nights, was excellent. service was great. we upgraded to a club room, definitley worth it just for the views we had. Right over the harbour, couldnt fault it. rooms were very tidy and up to date. no iron though, but they did provide laundry services. shuttle bus every 30 minutes into town. The location was good as you are a little bit out the way from the hussle and bustle, but close enough to be there within 5 minutes. excellent hotel and would stay again.

Room Tip: upgrade to club room with harbour view

We stayed at the Harbour Grand for two nights on the way to Sydney and it was fantastic. The hotel staff were excellent in every way. We arrived at about 8am after travelling for about 12 hours but they managed to find a room with just a short wait so we could have a much needed sleep and shower! The bars and restaurants were very nice indeed - we loved the Chinese restaurant which served amazing food. The Waterfront Bar was also very enjoyable with a happy hour which seemed to last about 3 hours. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.
There is also a free shuttle bus to downtown Kowloon which is very handy. And last but not least, we loved the rooftop swimming pool - just what we needed after sightseeing round Hong Kong and Kowloon on a hot day!

Room Tip: If I were to return, I'd select the club rooms as you get lots of little extras!

It took us less than an hour from getting off our plane to entering our room. Airport Express MTR to Kowloon Station and then a free shuttle bus to the hotel. The Hotel spotlessly clean and the staff extremely helpful. It is worth the extra money for a Harbour View. It is a lovely situation but a little out of the way. The warm swimming pool was great in February but nippy when the wind blew,
There are a good range of restaurants nearby if you don't want to pay hotel prices. The Star Ferry and The Symphony of Lights are only a thirty minute walk which we enjoyed each evening but if it's too far or too hot a taxi is only £2.50. There are also many more bars and restaurants along the walk. The only downside is that the hotel is a little characterless and they need to review the price of their wi-fi. However, taking all into account we would certainly return.

Great 5 star hotel at a fair price but dont eat or drink £20 for buffet breakfast and 6 pound for a beer but views of harbour are breath taking and try the pool on the roof?
Free bus to town every half hour

We were told we could use the pool as our pool was closed for refurbishment again!

The pool is located on the top floor and provides delightful views over the harbour.

Changing room was beautifully appointed and I was given slippers to wear to the pool area.

The pool area was quiet and we found well placed plungers to soak up the first signs of sun on our trip. The pool temperature was on the cold side. Whirlpool was a good bit warmer.

We returned to our lounger and dozed. Only to be awoken by a member of the management team in an orange polo shirt barking orders at a female pool team member. Not quite what I expected in a 5 star hotel. Shortly after 2 men started rummaging right behind our loungers. Quite distracting and forced us to leave. Surely the team could exercise a bit of judgement given that the pool area was so quiet.

Annoying, distracting and certainly not putting the customer first. All the more so given we had travelled for 25 minutes to get there because our pool was out of action. Again!!
