We found this small hotel on Trip Advisor and it lived up to it's reputation. First, the location in a very short walk to Circular Quay which gives you access to ferries going everywhere you want to go. The hotel itself is quaint, service is very good (concierges vary in experience and usefulness but all were nice). We only used the restaurant for breakfast which was solid but not spectacular. Our room was large (traveling with our daughter) and had a small balcony overlooking the botanical garden. This is good as the hotel does not front on the Quay which is quite lively.
We were there over Christmas and it was quite homey and included a Wombat that, although stuffed, seemed to move around the lobby alot. It was seen reading the paper, drinking tea, etc. Very cute.
Front desk staff was excellent and even caught a mistake on our bill as we checked out that we didn't even know about. Gave us a refund on the spot. Nicely done.
We did use the pool on the rooftop and it is heated in the cool season. The view is nice up that was well with a patio to sit and have drinks on as well as a health club.
