Had a very enjoyable stay here. Staff were very helpful from the beginning to end of stay. Loved the warm cookies on arrival. Room was nice although bathroom was a little small. Good location-short walk t heart of esplanade. Only downsides would be pool that is not very “resort feel” and some aspects of breakfast were quite average (scrambled eggs).

We stayed there for 4 nights and I’ve nothing to complain. The staff took extra care and kept checking on us & our comfort on daily basis. The welcome cookie was a nice touch. The room was very cosy & comfortable, the linens were clean. The swimming pool & jacuzzi was so good, we would go there every evening. And above all, the staff - all of them, extremely well mannered & friendly. I’ve stayed in many Hilton & doubletree hotels around the world but my experience here was the best. Definitely recommend it highly and I’m going back and staying with them again.

Check in this afternoon with James was an absolute pleasure. I'm here for a few days with work and then I am staying on for a couple of days for a wedding. James ensured that the original 2 bookings were combined so I wouldn't have to change rooms after a couple of days. It can be rare to find hospitality staff that deserve a 10 out of 10, but I found one today in James. Great way to start my stay.

Selecting this motel with the Hilton name was supposed to be a special last night holiday stay before flying home. Sadly, despite a great location for an ocean view room, our first room smelt musty. We overlooked it but later discovered the air con was not working so at 9.25pm (after lying on towels on top on bedding after getting wet in the shower, in an effort to cool down) I called and requested we be moved. That happened, but not pleasant packing up again at that time. Anyway, next day a morning water call with the loo revealed the new room had no water. Hubby visited old room for toilet purposes returning to the new room to shower. But that was when he truly discovered definitely a cold water issue as he only had hot water burning him, no cold no matter how much he turned the tap. So, I then traipsed down to old room for my shower. New room was not the better view room either. Breakfast that morning included mushrooms that looked & tasted like they had expired. To sum up, cold breakfast, hot room. No complaints with people working there though. Very sad and disappointing way to end a holiday. And no follow up from motel yet either. When I informed them of new room issue, was told thanks.
