Typical big chain hotel. Standard reception, standard rooms. My room on the sixth floor did have a harbour view. The air conditioning/heater in the room was painful. The remote wasn't the easiest to work out and the heater was that efficient. Considering the massive southerly that came through while I was there, I wasn't overly impressed. There were also hand prints on the wall above the toilet.
The hotel was pretty full the first night and the next morning the restaurant was massively under staffed, tables empty but covered in dishes. I had to wipe the table down my self to clean it.
The staff were polite without being overly friendly, but didn't check to see if taxis were needed when checking out, which I did need.
Considering this is a reasonably pricey hotel, I would have expected much much more.
