Fantastic hotel

We stayed at the Victory Annex which also has some of the classic style the hotel is known for but don´t forget to take a round trip at the Heritage Wing which is the original building of the hotel. Rooms are very fine except for uncomfortable chairs on the balcony. We also enjoyed the cocktail hour each day with free drinks and appetizers. Breakfast is incredible - especially the fresh juices made to order.

Romantic weekend

The E&O is a fabulous hotel. The staff went out of their way to make our stay a memorable experience. The room we stayed in the heritage part of the hotel was massive and beautifully decorated. I highly recommend the hotel.

just lovely

My stay at the E&O was perfect. Room was spacious and very comfortable. Meals were excellent. Only regret is that I was not able to stay longer. (minor criticism is 8.00pm close for pool, maybe this could be later?)

Trust the reviews here

Always have a thought that the members' review may not be 100% correct; but I searched the review here and elsewhere, all good and bad reviews are valid. I was offered a 15% discount, so I must say the overall service is super worthy.

great location, enviroment, very comfort

I like the style of the hotel and it is elegant. the room is very clean and comfortable. It offers complimentary cocktail at planters lounge if you stay in Victory Annexe and you can also enjoy complimentary soft drinks in the fridge in your own room. absolutely will stay at E&O hotel again when celebrating the annversary with my beloved one.

3 stars service for a 5 stars price

Nice clean rooms with complimentary mini bar and cocktail, but that's about all. Service level is horrendous for a 5 star hotel, with staffs who do not take the initiative when guests are looked lost or needed help. Happened at the recep, the concierge, and the breakfast lounge for 2 consecutive days where other guests were directed to the same table and you will always need to approach the staff first even when they are just 2m away pretending to be busy.
