The Gurney Resort Hotel & Residences

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Overall the hotel was quite all right. Air conditioning works well, bathroom was pretty clean. Old lamp stand was unstable and leaning over with loose connection. Told bell-hop but no one ever came to fix it. I eventually fixed it myself. Day two as I sat down at edge of couch, cushion sank in and pushed the side open, and a syringe with tissue wrapped around popped out. Scary? Housekeeping should have cleaned that out before I checked in!! Called housekeeping to pick it up. I didn't file a complaint.

The hotel is very old. Staff are not as friendly as they should. When asking for the charge to the airport and was quoted 3 times more than a regular taxi outside the hotel. Overall very disappointed and should go with G hotel that cost a bit more.

Very good concierge service. Nice to pick up and return rental car in the hotel. After a day's sightseeing and shopping I am very disappointed the gym and sauna closed at 7 pm!

Very good concierge service. Bachan Singh goes extra mile to meet our enquiries. Recreation area is a unique concept - bringing the beach to the doorstep. However, sand is all over the sauna room and an great inconvenience. Need threadmill or stationery bicycle in the gym.

nice hotel, great pool for adults and kids. close to shopping, but slightly far from old town. great breakfast spread
