Hotel was in a great location. Perfect for walking to and from the restaurants. Clean and comfortable. A little noisy can hear next door at times but it was New Years Eve so understandable. Only ate breakfast in the Restaurant on the one occasion and that had everything that a normal buffet would have. No disappointments there. Staff in the...

We stopped here on our honeymoon for 2 nights the room was lovely and clean nice size and even had a balcony, bath rooms are nice and modern, lovely central location. The view from the restaurant is the best thing about this place we would definitely go back.

Hotel close to town, port and food. Son enjoyed pool which I thought was too cold. Breakfast yummy and breakfast staff very friendly and welcoming. Gym excellent but couldn't use on a Sunday which was a nuisance. Very noisy as carparks right in front of room which was very handy for car travellers.

Thank you for your feedback. We apologise about the gym but this is a different business to the hotel, we lease the space out to the Fitness Hub and in return our guests do receive complimentary access but we have to adhere to the timings set by the owners.

Kingsgate has a great location, waterfront, close to the wharf, shops and restaurants. Great service from staff. But the bed was too soft, almost broken, uncomfortable to sleep. Not great sound proof, we could hear people talking loudly at night in the corridor.

Hotel is close to port and provides a background view that is hard to beat. Very convenient walking distance to the center of activities. Very clean facilities, although the walls are rather thin. Swimming pool is lovely. Laundry facility is available and the free laundry packets of detergent is a very nice touch. Reception staff is responsive to questions but...

Stayed 2 nights with my boyfriend, we were in a ground floor room which was tidy and clean when we arrived, no complaints with room itself but having a long corridor meant that the children of other guests took to running and squealing down the hall. Easy car park straight outside our room. Location fantastic easy walking distance to town,...

I was there on a family holiday. The location is very good just across the bay. The breakfast is very good. Since we are Vegetarians (No egg, fish, meat) we did not have much options in the Buffet Breakfast but the Restaurant Manager "Billie' went out of the way to make an arrangement for us. Overall a very good experience.

This offeres a great location and facilities. While it has a waterfront location, the rooms themselves do not have a view. Additionally, it could do with more attention to cleaning, as our room had an empty bottle by the bed when we arrived.

this is a competitive industry and we are very well travelled, so to be precious doesn't cut any ice. not only was our second night to be an extra $60 on top of the price of the other night, but there was only 30 minutes of wifi for those staying. Perhaps not the best place to stay if you want...

Superb location on waterfront. Two min walk to restaurants, wharf, cafes etc. Nice and quiet with comfy beds and excellent staff. Lots of car parking. On site restaurant was good. Swimming pool looked inviting but not for this trip.
