“Nice view of bridge, not opera house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We were on floor 12 and had an awesome view of the bridge. The opera house is hidden behind another building. We arrived at 10 in the morning and expected the room only to be ready by 2 pm but the extremely friendly and helpful staff member provided us with the room key! this was very nice. The hotel smells fresh and we were impressed with the room and the service. We also heard the noise from the trains but we are used to noise. Really spectacular views both day and night. We walked to the nearby mall but were unable to find any eatery open after 4 pm on a Saturday. The food court was also locked. you can walk to the bridge and opera house from the hotel. Careful when you search for directions on the internet for this hotel as there is also a pub on the other side of the bridge (not in north Sydney) with the same name and we ended up there.

Room Tip: Pay more for the rooms with a view - it is worth it.

My husband, my 10month old and I stayed here last weekend for 1 night. The room looked recently renovated and felt fresh and clean. We were on the 3rd floor and we still had a lovely view of the harbour. The staff were very helpful, friendly and very happy to help with setting up a cot, storing some homemade baby food and heating it up when needed. It was an enjoyable walk over the bridge to the CBD. Otherwise, it is very convieniently located to either North Sydney or Milson Point train stations. OVerall, we enjoyed our stay and thought it was very well priced for under $200.00 for the night.

I ended up on the 3rd floor of the train station. I was really surprised by how noisy the trains running under the building were. If you are a light sleeper then this isn't the place for you. The great view and nice rooms don't make up for the noise.

We feel thoroughly spoiled and relaxed after our stay here. Everything was above our expectations and we are so so happy :)
The food was fabulous, the bed really comfy. The view just spectacular! We will be staying there again!

Stayed one night for a game at the SGG. Great spot for access to city and game. Price is better value than across the bridge.
If you can get a room on the higher levels the train noise is ok and you can sleep. The view is a great bonus and a thing that everyone should see

Room Tip: Make sure as all other Reviewers state, Get a high level room

This hotel has a really central location, accessible by multiple modes of Public transport. I read past reviews relating to the Train Noise, and they are certainly not exaggerated sitting in the bar you feel the rumble of the trains below you,

I read the reviews and requested a higher level room as a condition of me staying ( if they didn't have a higher room I wouldn't stay) and I'm glad I did, they put me on the 11th floor and you still do hear trains, not as much, however if you are a very light sleeper (like me) either pack some ear plugs.

The beds were super comfortable, the rooms comfortable, new and clean, all staff were extremely friendly and the food (I only had a pizza) was very good. Again through, be warned the trains are loud!! But it's now my new "go to" hotel for North Sydney.

Room Tip: Level 7 or above, bring ear plugs, just in case it's still too much.

Upon first glance this is a fantastic hotel, and what luck I have a Harbour View room, wonderful. I did notice the train lines below going over the Sydney Harbour Bridge but didn't really take that much notice of it as they didn't seem outrageously noisy, In the evening though it is a different story. I think the whole of Syndey must be supplied by train. Every 5 minutes, literally, a train would come or go, travelling under the Hotel and making the room resonate with ear hurting bass, and just for good measure they would sound their horns just before going under the Hotel. they stop between the hours of 2am and 5am so you do manage to get 3 hours sleep. I checked out the next day and went somewhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for a room NOT over the train lines, this will mean you probably won't get a Harbour View bu...
