I haven't stayed at the hotel...so I cannot comment on the rooms but what I say from the ones that looked onto the restaurant...they looked fabulous. EXACTLY like the website photos. I stumbled across the hotel when I was looking for somewhere to have breakfast/brunch, I could tell it would be expensive, but I could see the view would make it worthwhile (like everyone should have brunch at the Pink Hotel in Hawaii). OMG...it was one of THOSE memorable travel experiences. I took my time and spent about two hours, sipping, eating, being pampered, and devouring the magnificent scenery. The food was probably as good as the scenery but I was in senses overload. The staff were attentive but unobtrusive. Well, they didn't ask me to leave!
I cannot afford or justify AUD500 per night (unfortunately) but this place is def worth it and I would pay it for this hotel. I looked at their online rates and they have a fantastic three for two deal until December 2011. But if you're passing through, at least go for the Sunday brunch.More
