Stayed here from 9-11 December using Reward Points. The hotel has a great location in the Rocks area, very handy for Circular Quay, the CBD and of course the bars and restaurants in The Rocks. Our room was at the rear of the hotel (728) but still had a great view of the Harbour Bridge, but the best view of... More

Have stayed here a few times now and have to say while the location is hard to beat, it is way overdue for a rennovation. Stayed in a wide variety of Holiday Inns across the world and this would have to be the lowest standard I have found. Rust stains on the bathroom wall, scuff marks all over the walls... More

The hotel is centrally located. It is near the museum, the Opera House, the Botanic Gardens and Central Biz District. It also has shops and eateries nearby, and is very very convenient. The roof top is not to be missed; it has an excellent view of the Opera House, Sydney Harbour, and CBD, and is a good photo taking site.... More

This is an old hotel in the Rocks area right on the waterfront next to Harbor Bridge. Great location...step outside and you have all the restaurants and best of shopping. But rooms are small and expensive. Food is great - ordering late night meals from 24x7 room service is a joy.

The rooms are a bit small, especially the bathroom. But were clean and comfy. The big plus for this hotel is the incredible location and the view from the roof top pool deck. The pool deck is small and kind of isolated but the view from up there can not be beat

This hotel is in a fabulous location if you only have a few days in Sydney, say pre or post cruise. Its ideal. The cruise terminal at Circular Quay is an easy walk.

This hotel is located in the middle of the Rocks with a short walk to circular key (two minutes). The open top bus tour of Sydney, also linking in with Bondi beach, stops just across the road from the hotel. The family rooms work well for two adults and two children and are good value for this location. The rooftop... More

Only visited Sydney briefly so location was great for exploring close to the wharf. Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms clean and tidy. Having a pillow selection was nice. Pizza on the room service menu was a bit like cardboard though. Great value over all and would defiantly stay again!
