The Holiday Inn is situated across from the harbour and close to all the hustle & bustle. So great position.We stayed here before in a beautiful Spa King suite up the top floor, this time we were in a normal king suit, and not nearly as good. Bathroom very small, couldn't soak in the bath as too small.The biggest problem was the air conditioning, we had to keep the door to balcony open to stop it coming on and freezing us ( we were there in winter)cool in nights. This was fixed once while we were there, but it kept being faulty our whole time.
The view out to the harbour was nice, bed very comfortable. Staff friendly. Breakfast quite good. Unfortunately the pool spa was freezing cold, and when we asked about it, we were told the manager refuses to heat it, even though they get many complaints about this. This was a real disappointment, they should at least heat it in winter.
For the price you pay here, things should be up to a better standard, we wont be back to this hotel again.
