We booked a Holiday Inn and by the time we got there, the hotel was a DoubleTree. Not a big problem but as there are TWO hotels side by side with the same name (hello?? Hilton Marketing?? does anyone care about the concept of Change management?) we had to investigate (with our cabbie's assistance) which was our hotel. The room had a terrific view of the harbour, a very good bed, and the worst bathtub I have ever seen. Why anyone should have to climb up and over a ledge to take a shower is beyond my comprehension. I think the halls and hall carpets need a major renovation too. That said the staff was extremely kind and courteous, the service in the restaurant was friendly and competent and the food OK to good. One comment about breakfast, I think the self-serve coffee machine confused nearly every person I saw using it during our five day stay. Urns of hot water for tea would ease the morning congestion, I gave up competing for a cuppa when there was a large tour group also staying at the hotel.
