The rooms were extremely spacious and excellently decorated.
the rooms and the staff were superb, would defenitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.
The best part of our stay was the manager's decision to upgrade our room without us even mentioning it. They gave us an amazing room with a huge balcony and spectacular view of the waterfront! We loved the modern design of the room - it was one of the nicest hotels we've ever stayed at (and we are frequent international travelers).
The furnishings and fittings in the room - exotic!
The luxury room setting and the atmosphere around the hotel itself
The breakfast buffet was not great. I think they need to improve breakfast choice.
The room and the front desk service was excellent.
The breakfast buffet was awful and the waiters clueless.
Rooms very modern and spacious with attention to detail. Excellent value for money - will definitely stay there again.
The overall impression we got from staying at The Rex was extremely positive. The rooms were very comfortable and had a wonderful feeling about them. The decor, fixtures and fittings are top of the line and so tastefully presented.
The staff were friendly and the hotel was beautiful, the room was lovely comfortable and clean. I would recommend to others and definately stay there again. The food was great too
The entire impression of the Hotel was excellent with the inside passages giving one the feel of being on a cruise liner and the rooms with balconies being more like junior suites.Staff made one feel special in all interactions and with the "small touches" like truffles left in the room each night after turn-down service, we were reluctant to leave.
Whilst the location is very central / convenient and only a short walk to the Water Front Development, the immediately surrounding area is not great. This will presumably change over time as the area becomes rejuvenated.
