“Pricey, but Classy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Like the Sofitel brand, the Sydney Wentworth was an aesthetically pleasing property. Luxurious cocktail lounge (but drinks are crazy expensive), gorgeous lobby, and lovely wet bar in the room. The location is excellent for walking down to the Harbor and catching all the ferries, and also good for strolling to the Rocks area for night life.

Excellent location, just five minutes walk from the circular quay and botanical garden areas. Easy to access from the circular quay train station although it is all up hill so something to bear in mind if you have heavy cases. Hotel foyer was lovely, very spacious with free wi-fi (there was none in the rooms). Check in was quick and easy although we had to wait a while for our room to be ready but were able to leave our bags with the concierge desk.

We were in a corner room which all appear to be designed for wheel chair access so it was pretty spacious. Only downside was that the bathroom was very "open plan" and the water from the walk in shower ran out over the floor. Although in the centre of the city, the room was quiet with little traffic noise. Bed was large and comfortable. We found a cafe that did reasonably priced breakfast just up a bit and across the road, which also had free wi-fi.

Concierge staff were especially helpful and courteous, only too happy to help, offering advice and even providing chilled water after a particularly hot day's adventuring. A minibar was available although we did not use it other than the milk, which was free. Unfortunately on our return to the UK we found we had been charged for using it but after querying this were refunded in full.

All in all, a very nice hotel and we enjoyed a pleasant stay. We definitely would return if we ever went back to Sydney and would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large, designed for wheel chair access.
