Had a very pleasant overnight stay, we'd booked a harbour suite/do not disturb package for our anniversary. On arrival, valet parking was swift and courteous, entering the hotel a passing staff member gave us a big smile and hello - fantastic first impression. A lovely girl checked us in at reception and wished us happy anniversary, the duty manager also came over to congratulate us. It's gestures like this that make you glad you've chosen a hotel. We were given the best suite and it was gorgeous, sparkling clean, huge terrace overlooking esplanade park with comfy outdoor furniture. Really good bathroom with twin vanities, excellent shower (hot and lots of pressure which I love) and a two person spa bath. The bed - I can honestly say the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. Huge king sized, choice of pillows and a mattress you never wanted to get off. We had a very decadent and delicious high tea on our private terrace before heading out to visit the markets and enjoy drinks at Rosie O'Gradys - all around 5 minutes walk. Buffet dinner was included in the package, I'm not usually a fan of buffets but this was good, I especially loved the cesear salad and the roast beef. A minor hiccup when I was brought peach iced tea instead of the lemon I ordered but it was sorted out quickly, with one of the staff making me a tall glass of very nice fresh iced lemon tea. The breakfast buffet had plenty of choices, I didn't enjoy the eggs benedict because they were kept in a warmer tray and the muffin was soggy, but I replaced that with scrambled egg which was delicious. A very courteous checkout by the same lovely girl on reception, our vehicle was retrieved quickly by the valet, and we were on our way home, very relaxed and happy after a lovely stay at the Esplanade.
