Best for Value for money - Expert review of Silvermine Beach Hotel

Beach in front, mountains behind: but yes, this is Hong Kong.

I lived here for several months while my house was being renovated, and look back on my stay with great affection. Half an hour’s ferry ride took me into the city centre and the office; while back “home” I had a pool, beach, tennis court and bar at my disposal.

Location: 

Airport, city, golf course, and that ultra Big Buddha statue – they’re all just a shortish hop by road or sea from Mui Wo (aka Silvermine Bay), a small town on the southeast coast of Lantau Island. The three-storey hotel is about 10 minutes’ walk from the ferry pier, between the sea and the older part of town, Chung Hau.

Bedrooms: 

The hotel has a number of attributes, but imaginative interior décor is not one of them. Nor did the construction budget run to anything so exotic as balconies. The 128 guest rooms are divided between North and South Wings; those with a sea view sell out quickly. There’s cable/satellite TV as well as broadband access.

Public areas: 

The most enjoyable part of the property is without doubt its outdoor dining terrace, looking out over the beach and Silvermine Bay towards Hong Kong Island.

Eating and drinking: 

The kitchen produces a mix of western and Asian food tolerably well. Weekend barbeque buffets are a good deal. The bar sports a good line-up of imported beers.

Leisure facilities: 

The pool’s more suited to a dip than Olympic lengths; the tennis court is little used, the (museum-like) gym almost always deserted.

Service: 

Surprisingly willing, especially given that some staff members are not exactly in the first flush of youth.

Who stays there: 

Budget-minded business travellers, mainland tour groups, school field trips, some long-term expats.

Price advice: 

"Best Kept Secret" is a bit of a cliché, but this must be one of the best hotel deals in Hong Kong.

Pros: 
The only Hong Kong hotel with a pukka beach
Cons: 
Ho-hum decoration
