We recently enjoyed a stay at the Moorings in a penthouse suite. The service is second to none, friendly staff who can't do enough for you. We felt like we really were welcome guests as opposed to a nusiance which a lot of other places make you feel like! The room was very spacious and clean and contained everything we needed, kitchen, laundry etc. The pool and BBQ area is lovely, kept clean and tidy. Right outside are bus stops for both directions and we were just a few minutes walk from Cavill Mall with cafes, restaurants and shops. Situated on a main road so a little noise is to be expected but it wasn't excessive or dominating. The views were lovely and we had two little balconies to sit and look out over the river.
The important thing to remember is 'penthouse' refers to top floor and not necessarily super amazing as the word penthouse leads people to believe. The room was really less 'penthouse' and more 'apartment on a top floor'. Also good to remember an apartment is not a hotel room so you may have more conveniences such as kitchen and laundry but you will need to remember to bring or be prepared to buy things like soap, toilet paper, extra towels, hair dryer etc and housekeeping isn't a daily occurance. Might have been nice to see small things such as salt and pepper supplied as these types of items can't be brought in small enough sizes.
Overall a recommended place to stay.
