We last stayed at The Bay about 6 years ago and loved it, so I was looking forward to returning.
Location wise, this hotel can't be beaten. I love listening to the waves at night, although it was very noisy at the weekend, which I can't remember from last time. Possibly the higher up the building, the less noise from the street.
Staff were wonderful, breakfasts were great but I have to say that the rooms are looking a bit tired and in need of some TLC or, better still, a renovation. Particularly the bathrooms, which are very dated. Niggely things like chipped tiles and the shower door that wouldn't close, so the floor was always soaking wet, detract from it's five star rating.
We had taken advantage of a winter special which was very reasonable, not so sure I would opt to pay full price in peak season.
