There was maintenance at the hotel while we were there so was a bit awkward regarding the elevators but the staff were great. plenty of free parking at the hotel which is rare...

Hello Gem, Thanks for your positive feedback, we're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The rooms have been given a major facelift and are a definite improvement on the old product.

Don't be fooled by some of the outdated reviews on here! The hotel has undergone a HUGE refurb and has been upgraded to 4.5 stars! The rooms are of the best quality; huge spaces with dining areas, kitchens, big bathrooms, smart TVs, a lounge and huge balconies! It's more of an apartment than a room now! Absolutely beautiful views of...

The hotel as a whole however still has many improvements to be made which I am sure they will continue in the future of the renovations. The most disappointing and honestly annoying part of our stay was the Bunk backpackers which is joint onto the hotel. The Islander...

Hello Michaelasawle, Thank you for providing feedback about your recent stay with us at The Island. The property is still undergoing renovations but half of our inventory is online currently, newly renovated and very comfortable. Since your review, we have instigated processes that nullify backpackers using hotel facilities. Moving forward this issue shouldn't arise again and we appreciate you bringing...

Room antiquated although without charm. Mostly used drug bag in hallway. Incredibly loud neighbours - possibly an entire football team - who counted each other's pushups very loudly.
