I was in Sydney to meet an international colleague who had booked in to this hotel.
Arrival was fine and the reception was warm. However, it seemed to finish there. The rooms although were quite spacious and clean, they left some things to be desired. Normally in hotel rooms you are provided with some amenities such as Shampoo, soap, moisturising creams. Not is this case. One soap and one shampoo nothing else.
Room service was testing. It took 3 calls of which the first 2 were not answered to get through. After ordering something light and simple to eat it took approximately another hour for it to be delivered. Colleague asked for a bucket of ice twice only to be told the second time that room service was closed and they couldn't do anything. The fact he ordered it before they closed meant nothing.
I will find alternate accommodation for future business visits to Sydney.
