Stayed here for a week, was impressed the minute we walked in. Very friendly and polite staff easy to work with. Explained everything. Room was perfect and modern with new facilities. Location was walking distance to everything we didnt use the car once. Would stay if coming again. Even saw dolphins at the restaurant at dinner! Highly recommend.

Lovely spot on the water. Great sized apartment, well appointed and quiet. Would have liked a higher level as we were on the ground floor, so view was limited and you had people walking past on the boardwalk all the time - got used to it though and better than a pool view room. There are 3 restaurants underneath the...

We only had a night on-route to elsewhere but what a wonderful place to stay. We booked a corner suite and requested a higher floor, and got it. The apartment was spacious with fabulous water views. The kitchen facilities are excellent so we choose to eat in. But dining options are close. In the morning, the hotel is at the...

What a great hotel. I stayed here for work and can't recommend it more highly. The check in staff were great and the view from the room spectacular. It was like you were sitting on the river !!!!

Reception was hardly ever there, and when they were there had attitude. The room was not as described. The housekeeping shouldn't have bothered. The location is central and very convenient. The staff in the restaurant were always fantastic and the beds very comfortable.

First but not the last visit. Met up with friends We both had self contained suites on the riverfront. Excellent suites although need a bit of refurbishment. The free secure parking and the hotel location is much appreciated. Experienced and courteous staff. WE have booked the penthouse mid 2017. The restaurant is disappointing..but many top class eateries within walking distance.

We had a lovely time in a one bedroom unit overlooking river. The layout was stylish with fold back louvre doors that opened from the bedroom onto the living area so the river view could be appreciated throughout. The king bed and pillows were comfortable. There was a kitchenette where meals could be prepared and a good sized deck across...
