From checkin the experience was fantastic. The young man at the desk (Gabriel) was extremely helpful. We had arrived late and were pusged for time to attend a show at the criwn casino. He helped with the quickest way for us to get there and advised where we could get something to eat quickly before the show started. The room... More

The staff at reception desk were rude and disrespectful. My daughter has a physical disability and required an access room with an adjoining room for other people staying with her. Despite this being organised and booked 5 months prior, this was disregarded, and when questioned about this and asked to speak to the Manager, staff rolled their eyes and treated... More

If you decide to drive into the CBD of Sydney (and I really advise against it) be aware you friendly voice on the GPS may not be up to date due to continuous road works. We found our hotel then spent half an hour wandering around trying to get into the street. When eventually we managed it, I discovered there... More

We stayed for a night to attend a show. Although a little dated we had a very comfortable night. The bed had a topper on it that felt like a pillow and I had the best night sleep. The hotel is very close to everything in the city. The buffet breakfast is also most enjoyable. Overall a great stay.

There is construction occurring right beside the hotel atm which is not much of an issue, but makes parking inconvenient (5 minute walk to parking in darling quarters, $40 per night). Night time traffic was very noisy, windows were not very sound proof. The staff at reception were not welcoming, in fact we werent even greeted! We were told to... More

Loved the location being in close proximity to all the places I wanted to go to. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast delicious. Fitness centre not adequate for number of people wanting to use it at the time of my stay.

Can't complain about a thing. Staff friendly. Check in was fast and room had a cosy feel and a nice view (7th floor) had all we needed for a quick one night stop over. Great location. Breakfast was good with lots of different options to suit all dietary requirements. Went for a drink in Pumphouse bar which had lots of... More
