We stayed for 1 Saturday night only. My Husband and I were there to celebrate our 10 year Wedding Anniversary on our own (time out!!).
I booked a package on their website for $309 (PARKVIEW KING ROOM, BREAKFAST FOR TWO & SELF PARKING). Seemed great value, as breaky is $42pp & parking $45.
Booking was an easy transaction. We received an email straight away confirming our booking & also another email two days prior to the date to re-confirm our booking!! Wow this Hotel is on the ball!!
We were not disappointed.
Easy parking being guided by the Hotel Staff through the basement, then a quick lift to the Lobby/Reception.
Check in was easy enough, and the lady that served us was very friendly even though she did have a very strong asian accent!! She asked were we here on hols or a special occassion and we told her about our Anniversary, so she handed us a written note from the Hotel to have a complimentary glass of wine each in the Conservatory Bar. - very nice touch!!
When we opened the door to our room we were hit with a wonderful fresh citrus scent. Quite welcoming I think!!
Our Room had a Park View from the small bay window. The other window was facing the Hotel, so I had to keep the curtains closed at all times, as I noticed that I could see clearly into the other rooms - and obviously they could do the same into our room!!! LOL....
The room itself was a little small I thought. Maybe because our bedroom at our home is twice the size, but I suppose its a little bigger than a standard main bedroom. I think the feeling of small was because it was quite congested. It had an L-shape couch, with an office table & large long buffet that had a small plasma & fridge attached. The furnishing was good quality, so it looked very beautiful. The bed was very confortable, and the pillows nice & luxurious. It would have been great if the tv was a little bigger, as we watched a midnight movie (and as ours at home is a 54") and I felt I needed to sit close to capture the movie!!
The bathroom is really really beautiful. Love the all black!! Its quite glamorous!!!! Just a pity it didn't have a tv by the bath....that would have topped it off!!!!! I used the shampoo & conditioner - and they were quite good products. The shower was large & so too was the bath.
The tea/coffee facility was fantastic. The variety of teas available was heaven!! I love my tea, and I love all types too - they had green tea, earl grey & english breakfast. Also there was decaf coffee - which my hubbie loves. There was even two Jarrah Choc sachets, consumed by us during our midnight movie!!
Breakfast buffet was to die for!!!! I was in heaven!!!!
The variety was endless!! From cereals, variety of yogurts, fresh cut fruit & fresh juices. Hot food included fried eggs, Eggs Benedict, sausages, hash browns, baked beans, baked tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms & lots lots lots more. It has an Omelette station - the chef makes your own to your taste!! The pastries were delicious, around 8 different varieties!! Lots of different breads to toast & rolls too. There was a mini freezer with two gelato flavours - the vanilla pod gelato was delicious with a pastry!!
I ate like a Queen!!!
There was even a fresh brewed coffee pot on our table when we arrived - very nice touch!!
Or if you preferred, any type of tea or coffee (latte's, caps, macchiatos etc) available upon request & included.
Botanica Brasserie Seafood Buffet never came close to the variety available for breakfast. And I do have to say (sorry Sheraton) but I don't rate it at all. We were so disappointed!! I wanted to know where was the Calamari, Octopus & more!! See my review on Botanica Brasserie.
But as for the Hotel, its very charming, very clean, great service & lovely atmosphere.
For travellers staying in Sydney, this is a great Hotel to stay, especially for location!!. Close to most of the tourist things to see & do in Sydney. Across from HYDE PARK. 2min walk to DAVID JONES. 4min walk to MYER & the new WESTFIELDS (must see - very nice - great food court upstairs). For the romantics only 4min walk to TIFFANY & CO!! 10min walk to THE ROCKS, 5-7min walk to OPERA HOUSE & CIRCULAR QUAY (where all the ferries are available). 1min walk to ST JAMES STATION. 15min walk to SYDNEY AQUARIUM & SYDNEY WILDLIFE PARK, & DARLING HAROUR!! Across from ST MARY'S CATHEDRAL, 15min walk to BOTANICAL GARDENS etc.
Totally recommend this gorgeous hotel, quite charming & good value I say!!
