Had a great experience at the Harbourview Hotel! Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff and service was equally great. Stayed here over three weeks and everything was terrific. Would definitely stay here again!

It has a beautiful view and the owner Bill is one of the warmest, chillest, Zen-nest persons I have ever met. He has made my short stay there memorable and enjoyable. He will always asks if you are comfortable and stands ready to provide assistance.

Hi Gene, From the moment you arrived I enjoyed your great sense of humor and easy going nature! I like to think of the Harbourview as a bit of a Zen nest and look forward to keeping you updated with our ongoing improvements. Very happy you enjoyed your room and the peaceful setting we enjoy here. Also happy you enjoyed your stay with us generally and your adventures with whalesunderwater! I really appreciate you taking the time to leave us such a fabulous review and hope to catch up with you again, either here, or Sydney or maybe even in Singapore - one of my favorite places! Until we meet again I wish you safe and happy travels! Best regards, Bill

Hello Topui, As discussed, The Harbourview was still being renovated in early July, with no rooms available. We have been fully booked since July 15 and will have rooms available again from October 17th. We were unable to access our Trip Advisor listing until recently due to complications with past owners and their past name listings. Thank you for you enquiry and we hope to welcome you at a future date here in the new Harbourview. Please check our website for pictures of our rooms, our gardens and our current prices. Please note that bookings outside the July - October period will be offered at discounted prices, depending on your length of stay and numbers in your group. Malo!
