“Excellent Establishment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

Views, location, nearby amenities, about 50m from the ocean.
We will be staying again.

The twin matresses were a bit soft for us, and the beds not too rigid, and the queen matress in the main room was a bit hard for those guests, but overall, I would still stay again - even in the exact same room.

Considering price, interior, view, location, management, this is probably one of the best choices we can make.

Can't speak highly enough of One The Esplanade. Been back twice now and we intend to keep coming back. Great location, amazing beach and coast views and clean comfy apartment. Judy and Chris were very approachable and lovely providing informative tips throughout our stay. Thank you so much!

Room Tip: Higher floors have great views.

My husband and I just returned from our week stay at One, having the best time. Chris and Judy are most helpful, very kind and had many great suggestions for dinner restaurants. All of which were delicious. The apartment we rented was #19 and it had wonderful views of the strip and beach. A very lively view from the balcony, but just steps away from all of the action. Perfect balance of tranquility and busyness. The apt itself was updated enough for our liking; I would choose it again if it was available. The kitchen was the only space that could have used an update but was very clean and usable with tons of necessities. We chose not to cook, many ppl use the BBQ or their kitchens but we chose just to enjoy light breakfasts in our apt and go out for the other meals as we wanted. We did alot of sight seeing so we were never around for dinners anyway. It was the perfect location with reference to busses, beach and the strip. I give it an A+! Thank you Judy and Chris for your many chats and helpfulness.

Loved our time at One. John and Sandra

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view so no worries. You could ask about the updates in each apt as they are...

Estuve en Octubre de 2009 en este maravilloso hotel. Para entonces sólo habían tres comentarios de él, pero eran buenos y la zona era inmejorable, así que decidimos probar. No nos lamentamos para nada y fue uno de mis hoteles preferidos durante mi viaje en Australia. El apartamento era muy acogedor, los muebles eran modernos pero sencillos y la habitación era perfecta con una cama enorme y muy confortable. Las vistas eran increíbles…. El amanecer des de allí no tiene palabras. Judy y Chris fueron encantadores, des de los diferentes mails antes de la llegada hasta el último día. El primer día llegábamos tarde y la recepción estaba cerrada, pero nos dieron todas las indicaciones para la entrada. Nos recomendaron un zoo maravilloso mucho más cerca que el que teníamos pensado ir y era ideal ya que no era enorme y turístico, era perfecto para un contacto con los koalas y los canguros. Nos recomendaron más sitios, pero solo estábamos 3 días y no tuvimos tiempo. Aunque han pasado dos años, quería dejar mi comentario ya que se lo recomendaría a cualquiera que viaje por esta zona. Calidad-precio perfecto. Zona inmejorable. Limpio, confortable y perfectamente equipado.

We stay in October 2009 in this marvellous hotel. At that moment only there were three reviews about it, but they were good and the area was perferct, that’s way we gave it a try. We didn’t have regrets about it and in fact, this was one of my favourite hotels during my trip in Australia. The apartment was warm, furniture modern and simple and bedroom was perfect with a big king bed very comfortable. The views of the sea were amazing and the daybreak has no words! Judy and Chris were friendly and lovely, from the different e-mails before arriving to the last day. The first day we arrived, they gave us all the indications to enter because we arrived really late and was closed. They recommend us a really good zoo closer than the one we were intended to visit. This was ideal because it was not really touristic and big and was perfect for a first conctact with koalas and Kangoroos. They recommend us some other places that we missed because of the time. This review is a bit late, but we don’t wanted to miss to review this hotel because we would recommend it to anyone who visit this area. Quality-price impeccable. Area perfect. Clean, comfortable and well equipped.
