Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
All the staff at The Botany Bay Hotel are very nice and welcoming with a big smile. Laura at the Reception is very helpful and gives us all our needed information and same as the lady when we checked out. The hotel room is super comfy and clean with a seaside view is perfect. The food are very delicious and is affordable. I highly recommend The Botany Bay Hotel to everyone. I will definitely would love to comeback and stay for more longer days. Botany Bay is just a few minutes walk. Had a lovely afternoon walk to Kingsgate Bay and Joss Bay. Check out for Captain Digby cliff restaurant as well.
