well, its not flash but its clean, quaint and comfortable enough for one night's stay. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The free breakfast bar outside the rooms was really neat & homely. The location however, was fantastic - 6 minutes walk from Darling Harbour. It was quite an amusing experience staying here.

Not the classiest place, but good average accommodation at a reasonable price. Check-in is at 2.00pm, and not 1.00pm as advised on the web site. I stayed in room 2 and there is a little noise from the ceiling mounted speakers in the bar downstairs but it all stops at midnight. I was so tired after a day of exploring... More

I stayed for 3 nights in the twin room on 2 separate occasions and have stayed in room 6 and 7.Room 7 is definitely much better because everything looks newer compared to room 6. Lucy attended to me on the first day and she is very friendly. She let me use the phone to contact my tour company without any... More

Based on the reviews to date we really had higher expectations but encountered a number of disappoints that would question whether we'd stay there again. CHECK-IN: Starting with check-in...The website states check-in is after 1pm but when we arrived we were told check-in was 2pm? Having travelled since 4am in the morning, and on a cold, miserable day, with luggage,... More

My daughter and I just needed an Saturday overnight stay in Sydney to see a concert. I must admit that we usually stay in apartments opposite Hyde Park, which are very nice, but of course they wouldn't do the single night on a weekend. Fair enough....I manage a beachside apartment building and know the drill. I'd stayed at the Glasgow... More

Glasgow Arms gave us a very good accommodation in Sydney just a short walk from the CBD. Tasty breakfast served in the large room. Clean bathroom with daylight. The old pub in the first floor had a nice flair. The staff were friendly - and the area was very quiet at night. To stay at the Glasgow Arms Hotel is... More

The room is large, basic decor, small t.v & fairly comfy bed & clean. Double shower was great & good air con. On a main road but very quiet. Pub downstairs was great to have a couple of drinks before going upstairs. Breakfast was self serve toast, cereal, coffee etc... was all we wanted/needed. Staff let us leave our bags... More
