5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for 2 nights for a conference. The hotel was prepared for my arrival and checking was very simple and quick. Our room was spacious and clean. We had a great view from the room. The gym is well equipped. Close to lots of restaurants and to Darling Harbour. Very friendly staff. Really comfortable bed and pillows.

Stay was very nice, rooms were tidy and spacious, staff was extremely helpful and smiling all the time, especially a particular guy named Jimmy, never hesitated a second to help in any and everything we could possibly need. Because of all the great staff, the stay was amazing! Cheers to all! I would definitely do it again!

Stayed here for business on a Friday and Saturday night. The hotel is in a great location, right near Central station close to the fantastic restaurants and cafes of Surry hills and easy walking distance to CBD, Chinatown etc. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. There is easy onsite parking and the staff are generally helpful.

We stayed here for three nights in July 2015. Check in was fast and efficient, they convinced us to commit to three buffet breakfasts - well done. Room was sizeable but tired. Dust on most surfaces and the door hiding the bar fridge had seen far better days. We never did get it closed - other had obviously tried more... More

We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience in all areas of the hotel, and it's apparent in this case with Mini Bar & Breakfast we fell short. I am glad you spoke to reception about your experience... More

Stayed here in July 2015. Nice, clean and comfortable rooms. Complimentary wifi was great. Breakfast buffet was acceptable but the spread was the same the 2 days I stayed...with the limited selection, it could get boring after a couple of days. Get a coupon from the front desk for a cheaper rate for the breakfast. There was a great burger... More

We were greeted well by the reception staff. Arrived early but they were helpful with the luggage and put it in the room for our return - thank you.

Great location, very friendly and helpful staff and comfortable bed as well as good size car parks. We only stayed the one night but would reccommend staying longer as it was very comfortable. 15 minute walk to the SCG is very convenient also.
