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

We spent 4 nights at the Glasgow arms whilst staying in Sydney and had a mixed experience. The staff were friendly, the breakfast was basic but as advertised and the bar downstairs was good. However the room we stayed in was very noisy, with the room shaking every time large lorries drove past, and a large spotlight outside the window... More

But the Glasgow Arms is not for everyone. Here's what's good. Location is great. Wi-Fi way better than average (at least in room 6) I could stream Netflix which is not usual in the hotels in Australia I visited. Not do good ... Rooms small an dark. I don't like single beds. And for my money, the Cambridge Hotel a... More

Looking at the reviews of this place before I booked I thought it would be perfect for my modest needs. However, other than a clean bed and bathroom, it was a disappointment. Although there is supposed to be a continental breakfast included upstairs, all there is is some small cereal boxes, milk is often non-existent, as is the juice. If... More

Where should I begin?! We started in room 3: extremely noisy! The hotel is on a main road and has thin windows and this room has 3 of them so you can hear everything from the road. It even shakes as large vehicles go past. This room also has bright lights which illuminate the hotel at night and shine directly... More
