6/10 Good

Always hard to review 'accurately' when rooms that are 'individually owned' may vary. For our experience, I would describe the room we were allocated as tired and long overdue for a reno. The Equinox is convenient for public transport, walking, and has lovely views with good facilities eg pool, spa, steam room, bbq's etc.

Reception checked us in early & were obliging above & beyond. The ocean & mountain views from our studio apartment were magnificent. A superb view from every window. For the price, our stay was sensational.

Hey please do better for long term-ers
Different owners for different rooms with different set-up. The answer I got from reception for balcony chair for 2 rather than 1. Had to ask for missing sink/ bath stoppers, or even a cutting board. I had to bring my own pair of food scissors for kitchen use. We had to improvise where we can move the big microwave so we can use the kitchen bench for food prep. we're hoping we get a better room when we get back, as we've re-booked Equinox again in near future for long term.

10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic location!
Fantastic location, directly across the road from the lovely beach. Proximity to cafes, pubs, restaurants and shopping was great - we walked everywhere! The hotel has seen better days but the location and the ocean & canal views from our room definitely made up for it tenfold! Added to that, undercover secure parking was free. Service was great upon check in and again upon check out. We will definitely stay here again.

Nice apart from the reception
We had to book the Equinox resort late around 5.30 pm on the day we arrived. Contacted Equinox switchboard who confirmed our booking and informed us that the property manager will meet us on site. The property managers reception was not nice. We were told off for booking late and how did we inconvenient him because he had to come back after working late that day and had to come back to check us in. The unit was nice with good views , close to entertainment, shopping and transport
