It is not easy choosing a hotel in a huge city like HK when you have never been there! We opted for the Royal Park because of price, good reviews, the pool and the room size. Rooms indeed are very large, which is handy if you travel with (a) kid(s) and stay a number of days. The rooms have a vague 70ies feel to them, but this is just the design - nothing is worn and all is impeccably clean. Room is also well designed with a safe, a desk, lots of sockets and room for all your stuff. Large window, so lots of light. Pool and gym both very nice. Staff is also friendly and helpful and English is very good.
Obviously, this place is out of the way. It is very well connected to ShaTin MTR station (you walk directly into New Town mall from the 3rd floor of the hotel. A 10 minute walk through this nice but very crowded mall will get you to the mtr).Even though the MTR is very efficient, you will have to change trains about 2-3 times each time you want to get to TST or island (4 times for Disneyland). This does wear you out over time, especially if you are with s stroller, stay multiple days and want to do lots of sightseeing.
We did not have breakfast in the hotel. Note that tgere are lots of options in New Town mall, but they do not open till 10 am.
We ended up not using the pool that much. On a next visit i might therefore opt for a hotel in Kowloon proper, even though i really liked Royal Park, the room and their service.
