What a beautiful hotel, spacious, incredibly comfortable and welcoming.The mansion has been lovingly restored and is very well maintained (although I do note some issues mentioned by others). We had a huge room upstairs, with a superbly comfortable bed, nice bed linen and towels, flat screen television etc. Bathroom was on the smallish side with a shower over the bath, not much space to store things, but perfectly adequate. Our room was huge, very tastefully appointed although perhaps could have benefited from a bit of modernizing with a more contemporary twist in terms of the bed spread etc. But don't get me wrong, it is all still nice and the house otherwise does mix old and new in a stylish way. I did have the thought that the house would have been really special if it had some nice china in the rooms and at breakfast instead of the plain very white basic stuff they use but this is a small point. As people have written, the breakfast is pleasant enough, not inspired, but it is OK. The hotel is certainly not cheap, so something a little more creative would have been appreciated and taken the hotel from a lovely place to a terrific one.
I notice the comments about children, there were quite a few while we were there and they were treated nicely by the hosts. In fact, you wouldn't have known there were children in the house generally and although the place was fully booked, you wouldn't have known it, you hardly saw anyone else, it had a nice sense of ease and space about it.
The hosts were very welcoming and warm, nothing was too much trouble, and they made us feel at home. The hotel is in a fabulous position, so handy to everything and walking across the Botanic Gardens to Circular Quay was really nice, as was simply walking around the corner and going down the steps to Woolomoloo wharf.
All up, this is a very professional and well run, beautiful old hotel with lots of charm and interest, in a gold mine position. Who would want to stay at a hotel when you could stay herel!
