We stayed in this hotel as a stopover before hopping on a plane. We took our little dog with us, our room was pretty small but had everything we needed including access to a private yard so that our dog could go outside. It was our first time in a pet friendly hotel and I would definitely recommend it for... More

A delightfully Victorian building converted to boutique hotel with period look and feel through style, furnishings and artwork. Staff were helpful and breakfast was good. My room was quiet (out the back) and was just big enough for one - a couple may have found it cramped. Well located opposite Centennial Park within walking distance to Paddington.

My experience was truly amazing. The staff is friendly, are open and ready to assist you with everything you need, and the breakfast is really good! The space accept animals, has midnight snacks, lunch and parking available. During the night they serve wine near a fireplace with piano live music. Also, they have a exchange books station, that is amazing... More

This is a place that is in the best location. It has the Queen Street shops but metres away one way and Paddington shops a few more metres the other way. The hotel is a converted house and you can tell. This does not detract from the feel of the place as it is warm and the atmosphere encourages conversation... More

This is an old-fashioned "boutique" style hotel perfect for a short or weekend break. Very good buffet breakfast. Ideally located in the inner eastern suburb of Woollahra (defined by many art and antique retailers) not far from the Woollahra Hotel and suburban restaurants. It is also within a 10-15 minutes walk of the Moore Park sporting venues and about half-hour... More

This place is lovely, it's a boutique. Pet friendly & for those that don't like staying in a hotel that are pet friendly ask for a none pet friendly room. Customer service was great.

The Hughenden Hotel is well located and the parking is on site although for a $25 fee. The standard room we initially booked for $178, was a matchbox and the so-called bathroom which was an after-thought was a very poor excuse - one could barely stand up in it let alone do anything else. Suit cases could not be stored... More

Dear Mr Bullwinkel, As with majority of hotels, both chain and boutique, we have a variety of room categories to suit all budgets and needs. Unfortunately booking a Standard Room when your tastes are more inline with a Deluxe Suite is simply an error on your part. However due to our high level of service we were more than happy... More
