We keep coming back to the Mariner's Court. The service has always been good, and the motel is well located for Woolloomooloo, Kings Cross, Botanical gardens, and isn't too far from the city. This motel doesn't pretend to be more than what what it is rated. The rooms are a bit dated, but the price is right, and the included... More

Hotel was quietly placed but central to Botanic Gardens etc. The room was large, with fridge, but the bathroom was not particularly clean, with broken toilet fixings, dripping pipes, and tiles that could have been better repaired and cleaned. Bed comfortable. Saving feature was the breakfast. Very good food on offer and plenty of it. Our room did not look... More

Had kitchen facilities as well which we didn't use due to so many great restaurants nearby. Cooked breaky included with only negative being there wasn't enough seating so... More

Although not fancy in any way, we have to say that this hotel was an excellent find. Rates in central Sydney are generally very high, so we were surprised to find this hotel which was reasonably priced - breakfast even included - and quite close to the city centre. Takes around a15 minutes walk to get to the opera and... More

This was a nice however pretty basic place to stay for spending a few days in Sydney! The hotel is pretty close to almost everything and we could reach everything we wanted (city center, shopping areas, restaurants, harbour, ferries) by walking. The rooms could use some TLC as it's all a bit worn out but the place was clean, the... More

There are restaurants & pubs nearby & taxis are reasonable to get you to centre. The breakfast is superb - well cooked & a great choice of dishes the coffee... More

We stayed at the hotel for 5 days in Feb last week. Paid AUD 154 per night. Considering it is basic hotel it is over price. Its 7 min walk from King cross and 20 min walk from opera house. Only catch is you have to walk on steep slope while going King cross or take 88 steps to opera... More

This hotel stands in the heart of Kings Cross, the entertainment district of Sydney. Only two min walk to Kings Cross station (Sydney airport to Kings Cross station takes only 15 min by train), 10 min walk to Martin's place (CBD), 15 min walk to Circular Quay (Harbour Bridge and Opera House), and less than 20 min by bus and...

When we checked in the receptionist told us that our room was not prepared yet. So she told us to wait for an hour and a half. Nearly two hours went by and more than 5 more customers got there rooms but our rooms were still not ready. It really was time consuming as we had booked a trip for... More
