What a fantastic property, with so much history, this property certainly takes you back in time with gentle reminders of days gone by. The staff were truly caring and couldn't do enough for you. Definitely one of THE best breakfasts i have had in a long time for a hotel buffet, and I've had a few, The Blue certainly delivers... More

It was a first time stay at Blue and we loved it. We had a two night stay in a loft room with a marina view. Lovely décor, unique and very spacious. The bed was comfortable and our nights sleep was restful. Lovely view from the room and we enjoyed the night view from the sky lights in the ceiling.... More

I had a lovely stay here with my wife. Really nothing to fault it. A very cool building with some a nice bar etc in the atrium. Good (if slightly unusually laid out) rooms, and a good standard of cleanliness. It's one of a small handful of hotels where you actually stay right on the harbour's edge, which makes it... More

We stay at Blu regularly for weekends in town. Its a brilliant location...., walk into town or the art gallery, easy to get to restaurants in the east subs and how could you fault the hotel. Great service and wonderful how its been integrated into the old wharf and its history. Only thing is that we stayed in 304 which... More

My parents stayed here over the Easter weekend in one of the 'Luxury Marina View Loft Suites'. The hotel was GREAT! Perfect location for those not wanting to stay in the noisy CBD and for those that love the water, boats and views of the city skyline/ botanical gardens. It was walking distance to the opera in the gardens, local... More

This hotel is located at the woolloomooloo warf with loads of excellent restaurants and just a few minutes away from the botanical gardens which will connect you to the city.

We stayed for a Saturday night. Checkin was great because we were given an upgrade, from the cheapest room class up to one of the best-- means we had a two floor unit, with a lovely sitting room downstairs, and a bedroom in the mezzanine. The bathrooms were small ( one person at a time) but functional. The bedding was... More

We recently visited the Water Bar at Blue Hotel for a drink before dinner. The tables were dirty and it took a further 10 minutes after requesting this be addressed for the tables to be cleaned. Drinks service was extraordinarily slow despite a large number of staff on duty and the bar not being full. Settling the bill took an... More
