Located in a great spot, near to all tourist and sightseeing spots but without being bang in the middle of it all. It is on a quiet street on the Darling Harbour side of the Rocks and the Bridge.
The hotel room decor is very much colonial style with nice timber furniture and framed historical (reproduction) engravings.
The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning functioned as desired...most important on hot summer days.
The swimming pool is quaint. Being in the basement/lower level, it does not have windows and is dimly lit for effect; the roof of the pool area is lit like the night sky and the main pool is somewhat dark. There is a spa as well as separate steam rooms and saunas for each gender.
Overall, a very nice hotel.
