I really enjoyed my 3-day stay at the Spanish Bay. The room was large, airy, clean, and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in!!! Great location close to the water with a nice view of where the cruise ships come in. Super friendly staff and an adorable communal dining area where you can grab coffee and... More

Very nice ,quiet hotel near the Sydney waterfront, and much warmer than the typical chain hotel. The rooms were clean and very welcoming. We had a great view of the ocean and the location was perfect for walking distance to most restaurants and shops. When visiting Sydney again I will definitly be staying there.

We were traveling with our two grown children and found our suite excellent and spacious for all of us. The hotel was conveniently located. The staff was terrific and very responsive to our questions. All in all a great stay.

Very nice ,quiet hotel on the waterfront. Antique furnishings except for the bed and bathroom which was quite modern and comfortable. I had made the reservation on line with no trouble and there was a receptionist present when we arrived at about 3;30 PM. We were a little surprised to be advised that no one would be on duty after... More

This hotel is a lovely boutique-style inn with hardwood floors, a very comfortable bed, and decor to fit this historical building. The staff were extremely lovely, and were keen to get to know us and provide some sightseeing recommendations to a couple of Albertans. Although it didn't affect us at all, it would be worth noting that there are no... More

I never got the opportunity. I tried. I tried pretty hard, too. I called their toll-free number and reach a voice mail box which stated their hours of 8 AM - 5 PM. What? A hotel closing at 5 PM? OK. It was about 4:50 so I left the voice mail as requested with my name, callback number and the... More

The hotel is a smallish old hotel (as in a basic century old inn - don't know how old it actually is, but go with that). And while it's old and was basic, it is fixed up well enough. The location is right downtown. The breakfast is simple: yoghurt, cereal, juice, toast, and the sign on the coffee maker asks... More

We recently stayed overnight at this lovely property. We arrived late and were met by one of the friendly staff. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The price was great, the location is very convenient and the kitchen area provides a... More

Premier. Nope. Executive. Nope. High quality. Nope. Prior to arriving guests are asked to let the property know the time of arrival since there is typically no one on site constantly (so I understood from the email). That wasn't a problem, nor was the fact that there is no staff on site on the weekend except sporadically. The room was... More

I am very sorry you were not happy with the Spanish Bay Inn, I understand your comments regarding no one on site all the time, this is something we will have to re-visit, we have mostly repeat guests that are familiar with the place so staff being on an on-call bases works for those. This however does not help folks... More

Tucked right in downtown Sydney, you walk right off the street into a historic and very clean and tidy Inn. Friendly staff, very clean rooms with an awesome bed. Set no alarm and you'll sleep in ! I would definitely recommend this Inn to friends as it was recommended to me. Price was great and a fix your own breakfast... More
