We stayed at the Quayside for a week in late June. We chose the Quayside based on its location to the pier as we were doing a week of shark cage diving and it was barely a two minute walk to the pier, so the location is fantastic if you're diving. Based on the photos from their website I was expecting a very nice hotel. The ceiling was cracked, the door to the mini bar was broken and the bathrooms needed some work. The front desk staff was good although twice they missed giving us messages and one message was to say our dive had been cancelled for the following day due to bad weather and we got up at 5:30 am for nothing.
The breakfast buffet was okay, if a tad pricey, with a good selection to choose from. The Bertha restaurant just below the hotel is very good and the prices are reasonable, as is the Seaforth restaurant by Boulders Beach. The Meeting Place across the street is also nice but the best value is the Salty Sea Dog, right by the pier. Excellent food and good service.
Make sure to ask for a room with a balcony because the views are fantastic. We would stay here again just based on the great location.
