The staff do try hard and a view of harbour is wonderful when requested is really good. So imagine you are on vacation and related when a horde of selfish bus patrons unload and take over a whole water view eatery, let their kids run around like spoiled brats and no control etc.. Avoid, management refuses to restrict their usage... More

Right on the waterfront meant great views from room to the worlds largest fiddle and the cruise terminal. Room was spacious and well equipped. The bathroom was good with fluffy towels. Reception staff were helpful with what to see in the area. We had dinner in the Salt Spray restaurant both nights as they had a good choice. Most places... More

Only stayed one night and had good night's sleep with ear plugs. Hotel restaurant ok, but limited menu. Good service. Good room facilities, breakfast bit expensive. Make the most of the hotel because there is nothing else in Sydney! We won't be returning.

One-night stay before heading out onto the Cabot Trail. Queen room, middle floor. Love seat and desk. Pleasant staff. No problems with check-in. Luggage carts readily available at door. Free parking. Pro tip: If your room is across the corridor from the ice machine, make sure the door isn't propped open (flip up the little kickstand). If you buy the... More

I did have a mini fridge tucked into a cabinet, and a very nice bed with a little sofa and great view of the water. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The... More

The location and view from this hotel are really very nice which is why I rounded up to a four. I was stuck in the room a lot this stay so it was nice to be able to pull the chair to the window and work looking out at the water. We were visiting for business but came a couple... More

My room had a spectacular view on two sides of the room, one overlooking the water directly and a side view looking towards the cruise terminal. Beautifully clean and a very comfortable bed. Had a meal in the bar in the evening and breakfast in the restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff were wonderful. I would highly recommend... More

This hotel is right down on Esplanade Street in downtown Sydney. There is metered parking on the street or a small lot next to the hotel that is free. The hotel is very close to a number of restaurants and bars and has it's own restaurant/bar on site with live entertainment. There is also a separate breakfast restaurant on site... More

The Hotel is located right on the harbor, the front desk staff was very friendly. The rooms are average, nothing out of the extraordinary. We stayed here as our other choices were booked, our mistake, we booked late.

The location is convenient to everything that is walkable in the area. There are two main parking lots, one right outside the front doors and another just down a short hill. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and check in check out was fast. There are many tour groups that stay here so if you arrive or leave at... More
