“Didn't sleep there, but...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

We had reservations at the Captain Cook for the night before we flew from Sydney to LA. Before that we went to New Zealand. Since we did not need our second suitcase, we asked the folks at the hotel if we might store it with them. Graciously they permitted us to do that. Case was stored in a locked room. Took a bus from downtown to the hotel and back. Looked like a great neighborhood close to the airport. Unfortunately, our flight from NZ to Sydney had a time change and we were unable to stay at this hotel. We were very concerned about flying from Wellington at 6:30 am, arriving Sydney 8 something, going through customs, retrieving the suitcase and making an 11am flight to LA. We called David the proprietor the night before, explained the situation and made tentative arrangements for him to deliver the case to the airport. And he did just that. Very pleasant. I would recommend this hotel based only on the folks who run it. Everyone we encountered was pleasant and helpful. Thank you so much Captain Cook Hotel for helping us avert disaster!

Enjoyed our stay. Friendly staff. Rooms small, but fitted 3 in our room & good value. Close to a good choice of restaurants. Close to city & airport. Pub noise settled down well before bedtime. Street parking, but appeared quiet street & no problems.

Although I was ripped off by the taxi that took me there from the airport ($16.80) must have been the long way the hotel itself is just like a country pub. The only thing that shocked me that I have'nt seen for a very long time was the "topless waitress". Had a giggle at all the men trying to focus on her eyes. The food was good and staff very helpfull. Will stay there again.

The Captain Cook Hotel was a revelation. Close to the airport, modern comfortable rooms, reasonable price, a great Thai style cafe for evening meals and a full breakfast across the road for $7.50

This was the only place that had a vacancy for New Years Eve near Sydney at short notice (booked in Dec.). The one review I did find on the internet gave it terrible terrible reviews so I had my trepidations. But I was desperate so I booked it. And what a very pleasant surprise to find it was not at all horrible as the review gave. Perhaps the person had stayed before they renovated. But our room #10 was very modernly furnished with coffee maker, TV, alarm clock, A/C. The pub offered no food b/c the cook had apparently just quit. There are a few other places down the street that offer food though. The are located right by the bus so it was just maybe a half hour to ride into the city. Also located very close by the airport. My only regret, not getting to sample a drink at the bar.
