My wife & I tried this hotel for the first time 2/3 April 2012 & quite by accident. We needed a comfortable room for just one night & very close to Central rail station due to our travel schedule. Despite a late arrival we were offered an unsolicited upgrade from a standard double to an executive suite on the top floor with views to the north. The suite was well equipped, neat & well presented. We had an excellent night's sleep in a very large & comfortable bed with no building or city noises; a real surprise as this location is one of the busiest traffic wise in Sydney. We did not dine in the restaurant or purchase the breakfast offers available at reception. This is a listed heritage hotel which may not appeal to all ages. A slight criticism would be stains in carpets which detracted somewhat, a minor criticism in the overall scheme of things. Night reception lady was efficient, polite & helpful. Check-out staff at 1000 very busy & some delay of 10-15 minutes should be expected. Having the option of a shower/bath was a real plus after a long day of rail travel. We came away refreshed & assessed the GSH as representing very good value. Whether a standard room without the much welcomed upgrade would have impressed us as much is, of course, open to conjecture. We will return to the GSH next time in Sydney & recommend to other travellers.
