Portola Hotel

Clean upmarket hotel right in the middle between the town centre and the wharf, great location for walking at night for bar / restaurant. When you enter the lobby it feels a grand luxury hotel and the rooms were certainly luxury 10-15 years ago but like everything with age deterioration creeps in and complacency occurs. Given the area and the location of this hotel they can pretty much charge what they want - unfortunately on top of the room rate you will have to pay for WiFi and Parking, these little things make an already expensive hotel more expensive. It is a reasonable 4 star hotel but overpriced for what you get but this is as much to do with the area as it is the hotel. We only stayed one night and at $300 all up I wouldn't stay again here. Service excellent, rooms ok, location great, amenities lacking.

We travelled with a 15 month old baby so the quality of the hotel was very important. Service was exceptional and room was lovely. Wish we could have stayed longer.
