“FANTASTIC!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Stayed here with my daughter for a night out at the opera house. From the car park attendant to the front desk staff, everyone was welcoming with a warm smile. We were able to get a late check out and then the wonderful front desk staff held our bags after checkout so that we could wonder around the Rocks for a while.

We stayed in a studio balcony room which provided us with great views of the local historic architecture and fabulous side on views of the harbor bridge and clock tower. The tea and coffee facilities were great. The room was spotless! The bed very comfortable, even the fold out sofa bed my daughter slept in was very comfortable. The breakfast.....we're staying again at the end of February so we'll let you know if things have improved.

My daughter and I cannot say enough about the front desk staff. Smiles that could,outshine the moon and nothing was too much trouble.

We can't wait to stay again at the end of February. This time in a harbor view balcony room! This hotel.is our favorite place to stay in Sydney and would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: Go a balcony room if you can. The added ambience is well worth the extra.

Our family of nine-3 generations-loved this charming hotel. We had 3 harbor view studios for 4 nights. The rooms were much larger than expected with small kitchenettes. The hotel is within walking distance of the Harbor bridge, the opera house, circular quay and many other tourist destinations. There are many restaurants within walking distance. Did I forget to say how clean it was? Yes, maybe it is a little dated, but then the price is right. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

P.S. the wi-fi was only free for 3 hours, and to get any reception you have to go to the computer room.

Room Tip: The harbor view rooms were great. You might want a balcony when the weather is nice.

the location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the Rocks. the bedroom could do with a makeover, it did not look that clean , we found a pair of underpants on the settee, we had a room with a hourbour view , when a cruise liner is in thier is no view. we asked reception to book a taxi for us to take us to the airport, we waited an no taxi turned up, the hotle had forgotten to order one, they then had difficulty in locating one, a receptionist did call one from teh street, the breakfasts were good.

Unfortunately some things are out of our control, however I do hope that these did not impact on your impression of Sydney and am glad that you were able to explore the Rocks area during your stay.

Excellent location,very helpful reception staff.So bitterly disappointed at the room.Very dated and unclean.Filthy,bloodstained duvet on bed with no cover,just a sheet each side.Uncomfortable small double bed with dirty stained base.All soft furnishings in room needed replacing.
Cracked basin in bathroom,mould,dust and hairs in corners.Noisy air conditioning and constant noise of lift going up and down.Garbage Shute outside door of room.
Although hotel desperately needs renovation there is no excuse for dirt.
We wrote a letter of complaint to the Manager after the first night and the room was cleaned,surely this should have been done anyway.
We were told there was no point in changing rooms as none had been updated.

Fantastic location to drag our cases and weary bodies back from our cruise ship. Excellent front office staff, very respectful and helpful. Hotel is in a very good location and respectfully does not take over the fantastic history of the area. The hotel is very modern, exceptionally clean and a fantastic view from the balcony. Would definitely book again when on our next cruise!

Stayed two nights after Christmas in twin room on Level 2. As others have noted, rooms are a bit dated, and the single mattresses need replacing. However, the hotel has a bright and cheery ambience, especially in the breakfast cafe and pool area. Staff are lovely and keen to help. Location is perfect for strolling around the wonderful Rocks precinct and Circular Quay/Opera House area. We took the included breakfast deal and this was fine. Wilson parking station next door, $40 per 24 hrs is OK for inner Sydney and very convenient. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Twin rooms only on second level. Higher rooms can have harbour views. Converted two-story terrace ho...

Good central location with parking right next door via Wilson car parks. Parking really easy with lift access to lobby and reception.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Rooms have seen better days although booked through Wotif so maybe allocated a room close to being renovated. The aircon control was broken so needed repair.
Apple iPhones had no contact through inhouse Wifi for our stay although Samsung worked so suspect an apple network outage.
Very central for lots of visiting, we used 2 fold away beds and these were not comfortable and barely fitted.
