I stayed here for 6 nights as a lone female. Perfectly safe & secure place to stay. Other reviews mention the music from the bar below, in all the 6 nights heard it for a couple of hours once! Again, other reviews mention the mad dash for breakfast. It doesn't happen, in 6 days i saw other residents on 2... More

Let me start out by stating that this hotel is not for everyone. I stayed here because it was fairly close to the White Bay Cruise Terminal. I had originally planned on unpacking my bike and riding it to the terminal with my luggage but my plans changed. The hotel room we had was quite large, the bed comfortable and... More

The Glasgow Arms is located just outside of the city in Ultimo. It is a great place to go to watch some sport, have a punt and drink some reasonably priced beers with mates. The publican is a top bloke as well.

First of all you should know that this is a nice little pub with older style pub rooms upstairs. Definitely not a luxury hotel but the rooms are clean and good value. Some rooms are quite large with a large bathroom and others are very small with a tiny bathroom. The location of the Glasgow Arms Hotel is great if... More

I stayed here with a friend, and while both of us were relatively satisfied with the hotel, it did have some definite issues. First of all, the staff are very friendly and accommodating, and the food in the pub was generally good, for a reasonable price. It's very basic, but pretty good. And the nightly specials are a very good... More

Nice staff - very accommodating. Continental breakfast was good - staff should outline breakfast details @ checkin. Liked the location as it was walking distance to the Opera House, Bridge and transportation.

Great little hotel with a nice hand ( help yourself breakfast ) Staff where friendly and for the price, I don't think you could find anything in the area close to it. If we are staying in the area again, we will definitely stay here. Superb value

Was looking for somewhere to stay at a very last minute as i was turned down by an airbnb. Chosen this because of its location. Stayed in room 1 and it is very spacious but its very very old! Theres a creepy old cupboard and the floor is squeaking! The sink is not working properly and it take an hour... More

It's quite clean but it's obviously very old. Good stay if you plan to walk outside for the whole day and just for sleep, if you're those type who likes to stay in hotel longer, perhaps you should try to find other better hotels. The staffs are overall helpful. Airbus services to airport are available, you need to purchase the... More

By this time I have visited quite a lot of pubs in the Sydney area, so when I got to this one my first (and only) thought was boring. Okay, staff were nice, and the place was reasonably quiet, but that wasn't anything about it that really thrilled me all that much. Not a place that I would visit again... More
