    Everything was generally satisfactory. I had trouble getting the meal that I wanted but your maitre d was very attentive about rectifying this situtation.

    I booked online the day before my stay and the system accepted my booking. However, when I arrived there was no record of it.

    Location is excellent for those wanting to be on the North Shore. Hotel is close to lovely beaches ,good restaurants and shopping. with reasonable freeway access to the Airport.

    Not happy with housekeeping services.No cereal bowls available for breakfst cereals ,not enough cups and spoons etc . and no hangers in cupboards.Even though every day sign on door placed there before 9am requesting room be serviced .Room was never serviced until much later in the day and on one occassion forgotten all together. However staff on reception excellent at managing these small problems.

    Prompt, efficient and friendly service - room well appointed - lovely views - hand location.

    appreciate the fact that the room is large and has a separate living room

    Very noisy neighbours and a failure of the hotel staff to manage this at all. The next morning when I complained they offered a 20% discount for the totally sleepless night but did not apologise or seem at all concerned. We left a day early as we were so disappointed with their lack of care.

    Convenient to local restaurants and beautiful beach. Also bus stop if you needed to go to city. Beautiful pool and well equipped gym. Magnificent view of the city and bridge and also water if you get a corner suite. Were able to use kitchen facilities and wash and dry all our washing.

    Felt the room was looking a bit tired, especially the bathroom. All the tiling needed regrouting and made the room look dirty. Also fridge kept fusing and not fixed. Hotel did offer to move us to another room.

    It was my patners birthday and the reception seem to know this on our check in and we were given a complimentary bottle of wine. That was a lovely touch.

    Check out was a little perfunctory - needed a little more attention.

    Clean and spacey room, friendly receptionist.

    Furnitures looked dated, and design and atmosphere in the room was like a business hotel.

    Our extended family stayed for 2 nights in 3 rooms and were thrilled with the location of Spencer on Byron - perfect for beach walking, shopping and close proximity to many restaurants.

    Our extended family stayed in 3 rooms for 2 nights at the Spencer on Byron and were concerned with the number of faults with the rooms that should have been picked up by maintainence or housekeeping staff prior to our stay. (Numerous light bulbs not working, 1 TV not working, 1 fridge not working, 2 toilets that wouldnt stop running water, 1 balcony door that wouldnt shut/lock, 1 extractor fan in kitchen not working, 1 bed with "filthy" sheets on it. However...staff did try to rectify some of these problems when they were mentioned each time we went to the reception desk. Not happy with standard of rooms as a 4 .5 star rating hotel.

    I enjoyed the view from both rooms. The additional items contained in the kitchen provided a number of options for cooking in preparing quick meals, excellent. The furnishings were comfortable attractive and functional.

    The location is great and gives you the best of both worlds- sea and shopping.

    secure location with all facilities I require. Great view is a bonus - love the fresh air by opening the door

    pillows are too soft and no others have ever been available

  • Group of friends

    The room was cosy and clean. the front desk staff were helpful and friendly. the pool and spa services were good.

    our room had some faults when we first got there i.e. fridge had been defrosted and was leaking, microwave display was broken. aswell as the stereo missing buttons. but these issues were quickly rectified. also strange that there are no plates or bowls when there are microwave facilities in the studio suites. the cleaner backchatted me also.
