Great location, the hotel is just across the street from the entrance to the Central Station and we had arrived by train from the airport at 9.a.m
We were greeted by Rolla who was so pleasant welcoming and helpful and made us feel at home. What a lovely introduction for first time visitors from Ireland to Australia ! We were able to store our luggage while we took a trip to the city .We actually were assigned two rooms. They were spacious clean and comfortable. Had tea and coffe making facilities and fridge We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to stay in a convenient, clean , safe and quiet hotel. Rolla made our stay even more pleasant. Well done!

In London you would not consider staying in above a pub so it was definitely a first for us.
The owner was very kind and helpful, the place is super clean and located in front of one of the tube exits so perfect to commute to the airport. We had a recently renovated room I believe so beds were comfy, the bathroom was new & clean. There was double glazing so the room was pretty quiet. We did not try the pub food but the drinks were expensive. Overall, it does the job at a good value for Sidney.

Room Tip: rooms on Devonshire street are more quiet.

Fab room (huge) clean, comfortable, oh so cozy bed. Tea and coffee facilities, but above all, great location. Just across the road from Central Station. We had the corner room overlooking the station, but the room was double glazed, and it was whisper quiet. We were going to our niece's graduation at the Australian Institute of Music, so we only had ashort walk and we were there. I would recommend this place to anyone. Value for money, really good place to stay.

Room Tip: Leave the car behind and go by public transport, it's easy

We chose this place to stay as we were going to the Football at the SCG and it mentioned that the buses for the SCG stopped opposite. Actually they didn't and it appears that the bus stops had moved to Eddy Ave. A bit confusing for us but it was just a few minutes walk away. It was still a convenient location with an entrance to Central Station right opposite. We had caught the train from the airport but came out of the wrong exit, but going back to the airport was so much easier, using the entrance directly opposite. The hotel was very pleasant to stay in, the staff were courteous and friendly and the food nice. No breakfast though so you have to find it elsewhere. Guests use a side entrance accessed with the same key for the room and also the lift. A big bonus as a lot of this type of pub accomodation only have stairs. Our room was only the standard one so was not luxurious but was large and very clean. Good housekeeping, but no toiletries other than soap. The windows are double glazed so it was very quiet. We would stay here again especially with the convenience of Central Station and also being a point for the free City Shuttle Bus (555) that runs every 10 mins or so.

We stayed at this hotel for a night on our last day in Sydney as we wanted the convenience of the Central Station which is bang opposite the hotel . We just picked the hotel off the internet and were not expecting much. However we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms ( we had two rooms!) were large, well lit and adequately furnished. There was a fridge, cutlery, coffee and tea making facilities and though it is located above a pub (and we stayed on a Friday), there was no noise or disturbance whatsoever.
Leaving next morning was a breeze, all we had to do was walk across the street to catch the Airport train.
It is within easy walking distance of many Sydney sights, the trains are available to go to the Blue Mountains, to Melbourne, or to the Circular Quay; there are a number of restaurants close by. We had Thai food which was good. if not exceptional.
Loved it, and would recommend it
