A wonderful location as previously noted. But why do they still only have one bath robe in a room for two. Also, no free wifi for us older travellers who don't have smart phones. And that radio. Argh, why do hotels etc never have radios that can be tuned. But if after a studio apartment, seek one above floor 12... More

I stayed here on a work trip. I found the hotel comfortable enough but the room is very dated and did not have the best atmosphere. It was quiet though, which was nice. My bathroom light also flickered constantly so I let the staff know but I said not to worry about fixing it as I was leaving the next... More

Yes, the location is great. if you get a harbour view, then the bridge, opera house, luna park etc. are all there. Easy ferry connection to Circular Quay. If you're looking for well-placed, but basic then this is good. Unfortunately, my apartment smelled like a nursing home - had to have the windows open all night. The furniture is 1980's... More

This place would have to have one of the greatest views in Sydney. The location is great, a short walk to the ferry or to the train. Blues Point has some great places to eat and drink if you don't wish to go too far afield. The rooms are very clean and functional. The apartments that have been renovated are... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend last year and absolutely loved it! We booked a studio harbour view room and were upgraded to one bedroom apartment! Staff were so friendly, and I really can't rate this place highly enough. It goes without saying that the view was spectacular! We are currently in the process of booking another stay here. Highly recommended:)

Very well located to buses and ferries for those visiting Sydney. Catch the ferry and get it for free as there is no where to buy tickets. No one checks either. Beautiful views of Sydney. Great restaurants in local area . Accommodation well established (studio apartment) and modern. But there was only one robe. No air conditioning so if staying... More

One of the most disgusting places I have ever stayed (and I used to be a backpacker!!). The views are fabulous but don't be fooled by the glossy pictures this is clearly the only renovated apartment in the building, what we actually received was a filthy very dated 60's apartment that looked like it hadn't been cleaned properly in years....

I can only reiterate what everyone else has said. The views – wow. Just magnificent, some of the best I’ve ever seen. We spent hours watching life on the harbour – cruise ships, fireworks, sunsets… It was great entertainment. The accommodation – very dated, reminiscent of a student flat – particularly the kitchen (complete with ancient appliances and food splatters)... More

I last visited this place in 2007, but in the 8 years since then it has really deteriorated, and now it is quite awful. The windows are filthy with worn blackened frames,the window blinds were spotted and dirty. The bathroom washbasin had a plug that let the water run through, the television remote did not work, the only spotlight had... More

The view has to be the best on all Sydney. The staff was amazing, the location is as convenient as it gets with access to the ferry, bus in a 3 minute walk from the lobby door. The apartment itself was spotless, with all ammenities needed to sleep, cook and do anything you would normally do at home.
