It's really great for the stay here in Sydney. Location is perfect for traveling to the city center as well. Rooms are comfortable and luxurious. Staff are very welcoming, friendly and professional. I will definitely be staying here again when I come back to Sydney.

There was nothing to fault from the soft bed to the large bathroom and views over the water and city skyline. The concierge, reception and valet all had friendly and professional attitudes which is sometimes hard to find these days. Large opening windows was a bonus alonh with an ipad with internet.

My partner and I stayed here for our anniversary and could not have been happier. The room was beautiful, we had a front corner room with views of the street and the water. It was clean, quiet and very comfortable. Close to great restaurants and bars. And you can enjoy a lovely walk on the wharf. I would definitely recommend... More

Stayed here for 1x night in a loft room with a view over the water. Loved the decor and room design. Very friendly and helpful staff. Had plenty of room in the downstairs lounge part then the bed was on a mezzanine level overlooking. All in all it was fantastic. Only thing I would comment was that we wanted to... More

Checked in on a Monday 25/8/14 for a Work / Personal break and was welcomed by friendly staff that took our luggage from our car and advised reception of our arrival which made checking in painless and a personal touch while they took our car keys and parked the car within their secure parking. While checking in we advised we... More

This is a beautiful unique hotel and a pleasant change from your run of the mill hotel. Our room had 2 double beds and overlooked the water and the iconic Harry's Cafe de Wheels. The only negative is that you have to pay for internet. Really? In this day and age having to pay for internet is a bit ridiculous... More

Me and my husband had stayed at this hotel during our honeymoon and we are very pleased to have chosen this place. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and professional. Though we had reached before our expected arrival time, they still managed to arrange and service the room at a very short notice. Plus on knowing that we are honeymooners,... More

Hotel is fantastic quality, rooms are comfortable and luxurious, I got upgraded to a corner suite which was fantastic. The hotel staff are extremely professional and service orientated which is nice to see. Awesome restaurants like China Doll and Crinitis are downstairs. Would definitely return however it's being sold to a new owner and I believe the prices are increasing... More

We spent onenight in this hotel, a Saturday night. Having said that, noise was not a problem. What could be a bit disappointing is the view. Several rooms face the street or are very near to it so don't have much 'marina' or 'pier' view. And the hotel appears to only occupy the street end of the old wharf in... More
