Fantastic service. I loved staying here. The bar on the ground floor, Eau de Vie, was amazing. We didn't book but it got very busy very quickly, so book a place in the bar to avoid disappointment. Great cocktails. Reception were chnarming and accomodating. Highly recommended.

Midweek getaway in the City. This boutique hotel was so much more than expected for the price. Staff were AMAZING, room was large and bed extra comfortable. This hotel is perfectly situated. 5 mins by taxi to the city and walking distance to many wonderful restaurants and cafes.

I stayed with a friend in mid April. This hotel is located in an excellent part of Sydney. It is outside some of the main tourist spots, but close enough to get there quickly (We walked around most of the city, but a taxi is quite inexpensive). There are a lot of cafes and great restaurants within a 5-10 minute... More

I chose the Hotel so I would be close to Sydney Day Surgery where I was attending for an op. This Hotel is clean, sensibly priced, comfortable and very well located so we will return for a more relaxing visit next time.

The best thing about this hotel is the location - set in the middle of some of the nicest restaurant, bars and cafes...everything you need is a short walk away. We booked Kirketon after reading reviews about the quirky boutique decor of the hotel. In all fairness, the lobby and common areas are just that - snazzily done, fresh and... More
