Staying for three nights over New Year and really struggling to choose between the following:
Deluxe Sea View room on the 8th floor of the Eliott.
Top floor room with balcony at The Rock Hotel.
Obviously, The Rock is iconic but there are so many poor reviews at the moment and trying to correspond with them over the last 10 days via email is like pulling teeth! Even when resending the same query to both the reservations manager and the operations manager, they still fail to reply as promised, even with repeated prompting. (Don't they want the business)?
On the other hand , the Eliott has almost nothing but good reviews and is my instinctive choice.
So I would greatly appreciate any feed back, especially from anyone who has experienced both or know how the rooms compare.
My thoughts are that the Rock might be quieter both inside and out and might have bigger rooms. However, the Eliott is not so far away from everything (does that mean it might be noisier as well)?
If there are any residents out there who want to take a sneaky peak at the rooms and report back I'll owe you a drink during the festivities!
Thanks in advance for any input.
