I've booked two nights but had to reduce it one night due to delayed schedules and gave them notice two days earlier check-in but they have charged me two nights. Rooms were smelly with mold and had to ask change the room. Told a lady at the receptions when leaving for dinner but no actions were taken when I'm back. Different ladies were on duty and said no instructions were delivered for them. Changed room was bit less smelly but still moldy. Toilet flushes too strong and watered on the floors. TV programs were only Freeview channels any extras were not featured.

I was only there to drop son in law at airport
I thought it was a self contain room with plates, but all I found was 3 cups one plate one knife and 2 tea spoons. Having worked at the once named Duxton I was surprised that no more cutlery was available. The biggest gripe I have is that there were 2 adults and a 2yr old in the room, but only one casual chair and one for what should have been the for desk but the deskwas in fact used for making coffee etc. We arrived late with dinner but had nothing to eat it with. The room was awesome but lacking. As for the service staff they were excellent, I had to ring for plates and cutlery plus milk and coffee as my son in law stayed up before his flight to aussie which we had to be there at 4am. I did appreciate the desk manager allowing me to leave at 11am as I had gone to sleep after returning from the airport at 5.30am and her call at 10.30am woke me..

The property was handy to water front, staff nice and helpful upon check in. Room ok in general. Really small bathroom only enough room for one. Ordered room service hot drink came luke warm. Asked reception for milk but never came. Bed was hard as, pillow was high. Room was hot stuffy so had to slept with window open in turn there was lot of road noise and wind noise. 3rd floor i got little bit of a view of harbour. Had horrible sleep. When i got to sleep i was woken up by girl who had been locked out. She kept banging on door it seem like ages. I had to get up and tell her to shut her cake hole and go to reception to let her in. I had an early start and i woke up tired not the best start for the day. Lucky for us we only had one night here.

Reasonable, if tired, hotel close to city venues
This was the fourth time I have stayed at the Bay Plaza in the last 16 years - for both business and leisure. In that time it has been consistent, although this time it was swathed in blue fabric because of an exterior redecoration. The note at the lifts was dated August, so the decorators are not the fastest workers. The fabric meant that the 'Harbour views' of the hotel's ads were seen through a blue filter! I would stay again.
