Very friendly staff, very helpful. Rooms have recently refurbished. King bed was so comfortable. Really tasty breakfast in our room. We had dinner at the Soldiers Club. If you join the club you get a discount on your room. Meals at the club are delicious and the view is sensational.

We stayed here for three nights in the Ocean View Room. A delightful spacious room opening onto the balcony looking over the water. A separate lounge/TV/dinning table and in the second room was the bedroom also with a balcony. A beautiful spacious bathroom with a separate toliet. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Esplanade for one night just before Christmas. As a result the hotel was very quiet. The hotel has recently had an extensive refurbishment and it felt like it had just reopened as everything was still fresh and had that new smell about it. In fact it had been opened a few months earlier. We arrived late...
