Stayed at the Kingsgate for two nights in May 2016. As two couples travelling together we were offered a two bedroom unit at a very reasonable price. The unit was spacious and clean and we certainly didn't feel like we were encroaching on each other's privacy. The view from our unit was spectacular. Staff were extremely obliging and friendly which...

Rooms were clean and tidy, and at a reasonable rate. Walking distance to the shops, restaurants, market etc.Evening meal had very little choice. And noise of very large loud family in the pool below was a bit annoying.

Thank you for your feedback, we apologise for the limited options in the restaurant are in between menus at the moment with our new winter A La Carte menu about to be released.

Very handy to shops and attractions. Comfortable and clean room. Reasonably priced, I booked for two nights. I stayed on my own and joined family on Sunday morning for Mothers Day walk. Several run/walk shirts around the hotel complex. Several families had the same idea.

However, the rooms were clean and the staff friendly.The dining room felt like a school canteen,with long tables that were far too overcrowded, and being required to go up in table groups to queue for food. However,...
