Excellent Hotel - we stayed in 2 deluxe rooms that were interconnecting for 5 nights - ideal setup for us with 3 kids (7, 4 and 1) Check-in seems to take ages for some reason, but that's about the only criticism I can think of. Rooms were spacious and clean, with a good housekeeping service. We used the heated pool (with the underwater music!) and jacuzzi regularly - excellent facilities, especially after sightseeing/visiting in the heat with young kids. We ate breakfast in the hotel each day, as we prepurchased, but wouldn't do that if we returned - good selection as you would expect, but expensive, especially for kids who don't eat much. We also had the dinner buffet one night, which also had an excellent selection of good quality food - expensive (and wasted on the kids really) but 50% off normal pricing for hotel guests the night we went. With the shopping mall easily accessed from the hotel there are also other eating options there - great with young kids to takeaway meals back to the room.
Location is good, we found the hotel shuttle service to Tsim Sha Shui wasn't that regular, but we used the Mong Kok MTR which is about 7 - 10 mins walk away (well signposted and undercover) Alternative is taxi which is about HKG$30 from star ferry area in TST to Hotel, which for 5 of us for the convenience was good value we thought. We found the housekeeping and restaurant staff very friendly - I think they all took a shine to our 1 year old.
Found a laundry service a short walk away from the hotel who charge to wash and dry your clothes by weight - 9lbs was HKG$39 for same day. Sunshine Laundry on corner of Fa Yuen and Nullah St's from memory - definitely cheaper than using the Hotel service.
Overall, excellent hotel and we would definitely stay here again upon our return.
