Brilliant spa facilities - cleanest swimming pool we've seen, sapphire-turquoise-colored reflections in the water, eucalyptus oil in sauna, rain showers, excellent herbal tea and friendly people all around made for a very pleasant experience.
Even though we are fond of modern style when it comes to the interior design, we found junior executive suite we stayed in to be magnificent and with lots of character, reminding us of The Tzar's Palace rooms (The Hermitage) in St-Petersburg.
Room service was beyond expectations. We ordered main course with an entrée. And, unlike in many hotels, where you find yourself hungry after eating small portions out of big plates - to our complete satisfaction, both portions were huge and tasty! Ceaser salad (with anchovies and the crispiest bacon) is highly recommended! As well as the creme brulee and chocolate mousse, which you can order at any hour of the day or night.
To conclude, The Observatory Hotel is a fantastic place to relax and unwind in the heart of the city, whether you are a Sydney-sider or traveled from far.
