Very attentive staff in all areas of the hotel. Room was clean and quiet. Easy walking access to many tourist locations. The neighborhood was clean and you felt safe walking in any direction. The breakfast options were nice with a good variety. We felt like we were very well taken care of and really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend this... More

We were allocated a loft floor bedroom on the 4th floor which can only be accessed via steep and narrow stairs. It really was disappointing and very little space to stand upright! We asked to be moved and staff were very helpful. Room 215 was much more suitable. The hotel is well maintained for an older style hotel and it... More

After visiting our first intended hotel (which was god awful) we walked down to the Vulcan and were met with the most amazingly friendly staff (good one girls). We asked to inspect a room before booking, and were shown straight away the most beautiful, elegant, clean and comfortable room. The bed was like a cloud, best night sleep, and they... More

People I met were nice, professional. But... Poor review based on rate vs e.g. QT and the following feedback: Room 310 - Arrived in room with toilet permanently running which I had to reach in the top and stop - Minibar wide open with a towel stuffed in it - Peeling window frames - No hotel made room service (think...

My partner and I stayed here with our family and friends after our wedding around the corner in Chippendale. It was a great hotel with nice boutique rooms. There is a courtyard and a bar where you can also have breakfast in the morning for an additional cost. They didn't offer a cheaper wedding rate even though we had quite... More

Stayed overnight on a business trip Nov 2014. Reasonably nice pub style hotel, clean, although I found my ground floor room (112) pretty small. The place was very quiet considering the noise from Wattle street, (roadworks outside at 11.00pm), so the heavy stone walls and thick widows certainly help. Air conditioning works well, and I think this is a great... More

The room provided the space and amenities that I needed. The room was clean, the bathroom modern, and the air-conditioning worked brilliantly over a very hot weekend. The staff were terrific and the breakfast at the café was tasty and reasonably priced. For the price, the location was unbeatable. I was within 10 minutes of what I needed and this... More
