Shortly after checking into the room we noticed blood stains on our quilt and curtain, along with various cigarette burn marks throughout the room. The room directly faced one of the main bars making for an extremely loud evening. The property and premises are quaint and lively, however our stay was tarnished with a pretty poor first impression. Free breakfast...

Hi, Lets hope someone wasn't murdered in your room but I agree it looks bad. I sincerely apologise for the massive shortfall in cleaning and maintenance standards.I am not 100% sure which room you stayed in as I can't identify you from this review but I do know that we had a comment recently and this was followed up immediately...

This is a real find in the hustle and bustle of Sydney. Our 2 night stay was perfect although the weather was not kind to us. Our room was spotless, spacious and modern. Loved the large comfortable bed and all the little extras that were provided. Breakfast was included and plenty of everything to suit all tastes. The dining areas...

Amazing vibe & views. Loved the trendy decks drinking prosecco & sitting people watching in the sunshine. One of my favourite stops whilst in Sydney. Lovely little beach & ferry hopping to different places

Came here for a work function and definitely don't recommend it. Food was scarce, staff were rude and main dinner was 40 minutes late. The meat in the burgers were raw and it seemed like everything was rushed. We were so excited to be coming and it was such a disappointment!!!0'

We were lucky enough to stay in this fantastic Hotel for our last few days in Sydney before the trip back to London . Fabulous room , comfy beds and of course that view ! It is noisy as it's above a very popular bar . But is not an issue - just enjoy the moment ! Most of the...

We really enjoyed our night at WBB hotel. From time of booking to check in, breakfast and check out was all professional. Received a call a few days prior from the hotel which was a nice surprise. We had a huge harbour view room. Bed was comfy and room was clean and tidy. Only negative was you couldn't watch tv...

Booked a one night stay to attend a wedding at Dalton House, the weather was glorious with picture perfect view. On the website guests are advised to select a room away from the pub to help with a quieter night sleep, which is a great tip no nasty surprises. Our room was tastefully decorated with a beach theme, the room...

I've been there for 2 days business meeting with overnight stay. The conference facility was a bit small for us but the service compensated for that. breakfast and lunch served in a nice way with great quality and taste. my room was simply awesome and i regret that i was only for one night there.

This hotel is a not what it seems from the outside on arrival. But looks are so deceiving from the moment you walk inside and see your room. I was pleasantly surprised and very impressed. The photos don't do it justice. Loved my room overlooking the park and the feeling of comfort and peace. The breakfast was good and satisfactory...
