Really enjoyed the stay. It is so artesian like going back in time. Only problems is some of the clients love to slam doors through the night and parking outside the grounds. Breakfast is great coffee is exceptional and everything is Fairley close by. Nice experience

The room is so small that if you place the luggage stand out for your bag you need to climb over the bed to get to the bathroom. Arrived after a 4&1/2 hour bumpy flight from Perth to the worlds smallest hotel room. No AC, a wardrobe that's too small to fit a suit jacket in and at 10:30pm no...

Dear Mr Burke, Thank you for your review, however as with all guests we do prefer the opportunity to rectify any issues you way be having while you are still staying with us.

I stay here regularly and while there are things you could complain about as it isn't a luxury level 5 star hotel like the Sheraton on the Park (where we also stay regularly), this is a fine historic hotel that is wel worth the visit. The rooms are a little small, some even tiny, and the hotel itself is old...

Small room but comfortable. The bathroom was tiny with no where to place any toiletries at all. I had to put them on the floor. Great location, a short walk from central Woollahra. The breakfast was pretty good albeit pretty limited. The laundry was self service laundry mat style which was a little annoying after a long flight and the...

It is a great location to access Oxford St and the SCG. However, it is expensive, rooms are small, mine was noisy due to the fountain outside. I had my own pet cockroach, and the reception staff did not let me know about the WIFI access on arrival, nor was it listed in the hotel amenities brochure

HGDaily, Thanks for your review and Im sorry to hear of the unfortunate events which lead to you having a bad experience. As our rates are very much on par with the Sydney Market, next time you are in town why dont you opt for one of our higher room categories which offer more space. Kind Regards, The Hughenden Team.

Worth a little extra for unique heritage style building with fascinating history. Standard Room smallish but comfortable. Included Breakfast a highlight with so much choice of quality food and places to sit. Would stay again. Meredith

I stayed in one of the smaller rooms. The room was small but not cramped. Good decor, well appointed & well maintained. The included breakfast was excellent. Good selection of hot & cold food. On site parking. A short walk to Oxford street. Perfect location to explore the city & surrounding suburbs. Highly recommended.
