I found this property using Wotif and looking for a modest priced overnight. I found the Glasgow Arms and its accommodation upstairs (no lift/elevator). I found the staff helpful, the room, including bathroom clean. Beware Saturday and possibly other nights with live bands performing. The lights outside by night were a concern for a light sleeper. I managed to make...

Spent one night here, as my wife and I visited Sydney for a Vivid Cruise. Rooms were above a pub. Rooms looked old as well. Inadequate light along the corridors as we arrived back during the night from our cruise. "Breakfast option" was bread and your choice of cereals from the corridors. I think that we were drunk enough to...

Basic rooms above a pub. Rooms are clean if a little dated. I asked to change my room on first day and had no problem with the staff who are very friendly and helpful. 24 hr self serve continental breakfast is excellent. Free wifi available and noise from the music below was not a problem. The hotel is directly opposite...

The sign says "We are not a 24 hour hotel." They could drop the "24 hour" and be accurate. They have a few rooms above a bar. Steep stairs and no elevator. It doesn't open until 11:00 am most days and does not seem to be associated except they hold the keys. The continental breakfast means there is a loaf...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
