This motel is undergoing MAJOR renovations but the temporary arrangements are well thought out, well signposted and easily accessible. The reducing parking needs to be looked at however as arriving late I really had to pick the only park available near a storage container. There is no street parking option. The next morning I was partially parked in by a...

You can't beat this location. It is beautiful. Overlooking the river and the boats and attractive landscaping especially around the pool area. I would have given this excellent but for the breakfast. The shower (rain head) was powerful and the room comfortable. There is an enormous re-construction going on which we were warned about. However, we had a very quiet...

We stayed at Sails for 4 nights during the Ironman weekend, and for us it was conveniently located close to the transition area making my Sunday morning a little easier. The resort is being refubished, so there is construction happening during the day, but this is not something we really heard unless we were in the corridors during the day....

On arrival we were a little disturbed to notice that there was some building and renovation work going on however, as our room was overlooking the garden, this didn't affect us at all.

Enjoyed our stay here over Easter, lovely hotel and good location. They have renovations going on however we were lucky to get a Pool facing room. Great rooms, bathroom needs a bath tub, easy access to shops and restaurants. Very nice pool area which backs onto the river/bay. Parking is a problem. Hotel food options didn't look that great.
