Still like this place. Great location and friendly staff. But..why do we always get asked both here and Rydges Esplanade if we have stayed before. We are locals and have stayed both place multiple times. Surely the computer system would show this. Also we are priority rewards members and went to the bar last night to see a list of...

We had one of the king executive deluxe suites (I think it was called) and it was lovely. Huge rooms, huge comfortable bed and a lovely huge bathroom with a spa.

Typical chain hotel but very clean and nice rooms. There is an elevator and it is a multi level tower. There is an attached restaurant and a large outdoor pool. The food and rooms were on the pricier side but our group only stayed one night.

Its a nice property with a wonderful pool and clean spacious rooms. The breakfast is really good with a big spread. The rooms have sea views. The balconies are quite spacious too. Cleaning was done promptly and the reception desk is quite helpful and understanding as well.
