Reviewed 14 August 2014

Positives:
- Rooms were decent
- Swimming pool and Jacuzzi was good.

Negatives:
- Though it is near to a "beach", the location is too far away from about everything of worth.
- They had empty toiletry boxes in the bathroom. Thats shameful.

this hotel is hidden away in the new territories away from main part of HK. This is not the best place to stay if you need to frequently travel back to the city. They have free shuttles to the Tsuen wan district and from there you can take the MTR to where you need to go. Taxi rides back to the main part of HK will cost you about 50+ HKD. I stayed here because i wanted to end my HK trip with some peace away from the bustling city. It was a great escape right along the beach with great views of the bay from my room on the top floor. Beds were very comfy. Very clean rooms and spacious.

Not a great location for sightseeing and a pain to get to from the airport. Taxi was $200 and took about half an hour. Scary ride with driver speeding and seatbelts that didn't work.
No free shuttle but they did give free wifi in the room, which was a bonus. Pool and changing area was great, staff were helpful and friendly. We discovered a free coffee bar on our floor with refreshments. This was unexpected and generous- biscuits/cakes/coffee machine. Room was very good, clean, well equipped. Recommend this place if you have no desire to sight see and just want to rest, otherwise pay extra for a better location.

This is probably my bad choice for hk trip. The hotel is located way far from tsuen wan area. From the website, there is shuttle bus provided to MTR. So we waiting outside lobby, when the bus arriving and we push our heavy luggage into the bus by ourself. None of hotel staff helping us. Then a very rude staff shout at us and request us to buy the ticket in Cantonese. I further question where should I go to buy the ticket? The staff didn't answer and keep shouting. Then I move all my luggages down and go to lobby and ask to buy ticket. When I ready with my ticket and the bus just leave us without waiting. This is really bad service. how can a hotel treat their guests in such way? They didn't help to carry luggage, speak in Cantonese, didn't ask the bus to wait us just for one minute , and the $10 per person charge for the bus trip to MTR.
Please do not book this hotel for the lousy teribble services.

The hotel as its name has quite a view !! situated amidst mountains, series of winding roads with steep elevation lead you to the entrance & I loved it !! The hotel lobby was bustling with tourists some waiting to check-out or check-in. I had to wait for 2 hrs (at least) to get my room !!

The room was of excellent size for a solo traveller. I liked the simple décor of the room. The view from the rom was soothing with endless trails of mountains.

I LOVED...
1. The in-house café LIDO. Breakfast buffet was sumptuous; the sheer variety blew me away !!
2. The staff was quite helpful & courteous.
3. The Concierge service staff were helpful & informative.
4. Hotel shuttle service offering pick-up & drop from major attraction & nearest metro station that made commuting simpler despite its location.

I DIDN'T LIKE...
1. Location !! its too far off from the main city. I spent over 2 hrs daily to travel till the city centre & back :-(

Room Tip: 1. Higher floor will give you better views. 2. There is a beach near to the hotel. 3. I found buff...

Was given this hotel by airline after a missed connection. This is not suited to western business traveler. Room is tiny dirty and in poor condition. Staff were a little under pressure with so many stranded travelers but really were quite hopeless. only food option was rice and pork and it took 45 minutes to produce. Wifi is hourly which is a pain. Location is the pits. Miles away from MTR and really not close to anything.
Worst hotel I have stayed in in HK by a mile and I've stayed in dozens.

Hotel is away from the shopping district ,but it's right beside the Ting Kau bridge and top with a Superb seaview that only the riches of the rich can afford in HK.
a short walk (4km ,20-30 mins ) along the coastline to local town -Tsuen Wan is good exercise.
Hotel room is decent in size ,in fact bigger than most in HK
Room with seaview , big double bed , desk ,2seated sattie with table and a 42" tele ,a mini kitchen .
Rain shower was nice after a long day in the city.
nice gym ,outdoor pool, sauna n hot tub
a short taxi ride to Ting Kau town and you can try the famous roast goose ,reasonable price than city and taste better (roast in the shop ).
After a long day ,looking out to the beach with tipple in your hand -That's what living is for !!.

Room Tip: Higher floor with seaview
