The staff at reception was very helpful.The room was adequate for our one night stay,although the TV was not working.Would have liked there to be a dining room and cafe available as we arrived late and the children were hungry.

I understand it's Sydney and location is great but it was way to expensive for what you get. There was pen all over the walls. Mould in the cornice of the bathroom and the beds were impossible to sleep. Also maybe put a family of five on the ground floor if there's no lift. I thought the staff were lovely... More

We've stayed here before and have always found the rooms clean with everything we need to make our stay comfortable. It's a good location within walking distance of the places we need to go. The staff are always amazing at listening and acting upon the requests of their customers.

Extremely poor quality mattresses on beds, a very poor quality nights sleep and sore back next morning. Traffic noise was horrendous very early morning and the whole family struggled to sleep not good with children. Staff were friendly, rooms clean and it was located well, easily accessible to public transport.

We went in Juh, which is winter time. The room is cold as there is no heater. There is no constant supply of hot water. Therefore, we could not shower at certain time of the day. However, the hotel location is good.

The staff where fantastic and willing to help! The room was clean and we had no problems, other then a light blowing on the first night, but was promptly taken care of by the night manager. The whole hotel was clean and tidy and had a very relaxed feel to it. The vending machine was a welcome plus as well.... More
