Great pub/restaurant serving quality meals for extremely good prices in Sydney. We ate here 3 evenings in one week and also took part in the trivia/quiz which was good. Despite coming last we enjoyed ourselves and were also given a $10 food and drink voucher!

I am only commenting on the food at the Strand. It was excellent value for money and very tasty. The service was spot on, with Miles the bar manager leading the way, great bit of Aussie banter, he made us feel very welcome, always spoke and always had a smile on his face. I would recommend the Strand to everyone.

Decent average room. Shower area and kitchen seemed dirty at times, place could do with a good deep clean, it does get hoovered daily, Bit if a pain if you need a pan etc as have to find someone in the bar downstairs, staff aren't quick to serve anyone and frankly seem rude on most occasions. Also not much space... More

It seems as if many of the reviews for this hotel start along the lines of "We were staying at the hotel across the street and stopped by to eat..." While the restaurant may be good, that is not a reflection of the quality of the accommodation. I stayed in a six person room, and the room was terrible. There... More

We ate here 2 nights whilst we were staying at the hotel across the road. Great food, amazing prices, lovely friendly staff. Just a complete bargain. We couldnt recommend this place more. Considering the prices in Sydney which is such an expensive place. Go!!!!!!

We went to the Strand for dinner one night, as it was recommended as a 'cheap eat' on a map of Sydney we picked up. My boyfriend had a $16 mixed grill, which had a variety of meat on it, with chips and was really well cooked. I had fish and chips which were $10. The portions were good in... More

We stayed at the Sydney Boulevard hotel, which is directly opposite the Strand hotel. We ate in the Strand a couple of nights and really enjoyed our meals. There is plenty of choice and its a lot cheaper than most other places to eat in Sydney and the food is excellent. Also the alcohol is a lot cheaper than most... More

We stayed in the Boulevard Hotel opposite the Strand. We popped in for a beer one afternoon and saw how fantastic the food looked so we went back to eat that evening. An old style Aussie pub with a multitude of customers, great for people watchers. Sydney is a very expensive city and we ate here for 10 dollars each!... More

My rating reflects that this is a good pub, but this is NOT a backpackers, it is 'rooms above a pub'. A real backpackers has an equipped kitchen that you don't have to find staff and pay extra money/a deposit for and has an indoor communal area open outside of pub hours. We did have an old fridge in our... More
