Absolute gem of a hotel - great ambiance, friendly staff, stylish decor and a convenient location. A home away from home that's much better value than even some 5-star properties. Would definitely stay again!

I stayed at the Kirketon for 4 nights for a little vacation to Sydney. It was my first time in Sydney and had no idea where to stay and picked the Kirketon almost at random, and I couldn't have been luckier in my selection. Good location, very good cafés and bakeries in Darlinghurst and you can still conveniently walk to... More

A great location - we enjoyed walking to Surrey Hills, Paddington, and Potts point, plus fantastic restaurants and cafes nearby in Darlinghurst. Friendly staff but the room was very tired. We paid for a more expensive room - 'supreme'? - but it had no frills. The bed was ok, but the couch was very worn and the bathroom was not... More

The Kirketon Hotel is in a great location on the eastern fringe of the Sydney CBD - it is small and our booking was as "secret deals" hotel so offered really terrific value for money and that probably explains why the bed was only a double. For one night it was more than comfortable, but for any extra nights, I... More

Dear Fraggers, We are delighted you found the Kirketon to great value for money!

We stayed for one night and found the staff to be incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room had a beautiful view over the street and the nearby church and the ability to open our window and get some fresh air was a welcome addition and not something you can do in a lot of other hotels!...

We booked this as a "secret" hotel to get a good deal and were surprised it was rated 4.5 stars. This rooms are clean, and redesigned, but are so small you have to shuffle sideways against the wall to get to the bathroom. Our first room had an overpowering stink of gleaner, but the windows do open in the bathroom,... More

I recently stayed at the Kirketon Hotel with my fiance for our anniversary. The staff (Alice in particular) were extremely helpful, very friendly and very welcoming. There is great asian downstairs (they can even deliver it to your room), a great spot for breakfast across the road you can get a voucher for, and a brilliant cocktail bar downstairs too.... More

I recently had a two night stay at the Kirkton, which is well located to great cafes and restaurants. I had minimal contact with the staff although when I did they were all very helpful and friendly.
