Stayed one night in Auberge, Discovery Bay Hong Kong. This hotel is rather unique in cramped and over-built Hong Kong as it is located in an island resort yet only 50 minutes driving distance by comfortable and complimentary hotel shuttle from the Hong Kong island city pickup point outside Exit B of Wanchai MTR station. This hotel has a sizeable hotel lobby, high ceilings everywhere and full seaview in guest rooms. There are a number of function rooms which mainly cater for weddings.
The guest room I stayed in on 11 Floor is adequately large with a 250 sq ft bedroom plus a 70 sq ft bathroom and toilet area. Both the bedroom and bathroom have full seaview. The bathroom has a rain shower plus a traditional hose shower. All the water tabs and temperature controls are simple to use. All parts of the guest room are clean save some dust on the bedside telephone. There is a 42 inch flat screen TV, a small metallic safe with electronic lock and a mini fridge. The mini fridge was completely empty though. The TV programs are rather limited so don't expect to be able to surf lots of TV stations.
The bed is queen size with clean bed sheet and blanket, and comfortable pillows.
The rooms are insulated from noise from the adjoining rooms by rock solid walls but for people who are sensitive to noise of any kind, they should be aware that there is quite a bit of wind noise from the overhead air conditioner vent, about 8 feet above the floor. This is a blemish on the otherwise extremely quiet environment.
There is a small cluster of eateries ( not part of the hotel ) within 2 minutes walk from the hotel but the food on offer are not appetising. Dining at the hotel's Cafe Bord de Mer on ground floor is preferred. Prices there are lower than comparable grade hotels in Hong Kong. A bottle of Tsingtao beer will set one back HK$50 and a pasta dish costs around HK$180. There is no complaint about the waitress service.
