The Goldborough is a hotel well past its prime and well and truly due for renovation. The best thing about the place is its location, with very easy access to Darling Harbour, the monorail and within walking distance of the city centre (takes 15-20min). Be aware though that there is absolutely nothing open on weekends immediatly around the place, so you will need to go to Darling Harbour just to get a coffee.
Its fairly cheap at the moment to get a room at the Goldsborough and there is probably a good reason for that. The hotel is generally shabby. I stayed in a 1 bedroom 4.5 star apartment and thats what I thought I would get, unfortunately it was more like a cheap and badly cleaned motel room (arrived to find half chewed buscuits on the carpet and stains on the sheets). I don't mind places being a bit old as long as they are clean and well maintained, this hotel is not. The place is noisy as well and while the hotel guests seem to be fairly quiet its the permanent residents on the lower floors who seem to be the worst, especially on weekdays from about 6.30am. The problem being that for some strange reason the bedrooms face the open walkways.
This is not a good hotel and not good value for money even at the bargain prices being offered.
