Once again I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Slipway. I keep coming back because the rooms are comfortable, they have beautiful views of the peninsula from their new hotel extension and the staff are always friendly. If you are looking for a great place to stay close to the CBD, I would recommend Hotel Slipway.

Staying here again has served to confirm just how good I feel about this Hotel. The best way I can describe the rooms is, lightly crispy, so clean, so fresh, so light. The rooms are also spacious, and it's a very comfortable sleep.

Love the design of the rooms, the size and general feel is great only thing that I found a little odd is that there are no exposed power sockets in the room, which means your moving furniture to plug in your phone charger. Otherwise tough to beat with the quality of facilities available at the Slipway..
