“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We arrived at the hotel around 10am after two very long flights from the UK. The staff could not have been more helpful. They offered to look after our suitcases and suggested we went to a cafe up a side street and come back in about an hour when our room would be ready at no extra cost. We got our room around 11am. After showering, the reception staff were really helpful again, giving us directions, with aid of a local map, of where to buy a day bus ticket and which bus to get on to take us to the harbour where all the siteseeing trips go from. We found the bed comfortable and room quiet but quite honestly nothing would have woken us up after the long flight! The bathroom was a bit dated but it had all the facilities, was clean and everything worked. We stayed two nights. If you like Victorian buildings then this one is for you. I agree with others that the breakfast is ok but could be better. Not overly keen on plastic cheese and tin fruit, no facilities for cooked breakfast, but there was a toaster. Interestingly, in the public lounge there are lots of photos of famous people who had stayed at the hotel, some dating back to the 1960's. Noticed that lots of them looked very young, no recent photos of any celebreties though!

Room Tip: Good sized double L-shaped room called "Edward Barton" on the first floor recommended. It...

I stayed here for one night, as an alternative to the normal Novotel, or Vibe option I usually go with when staying in Sydney for work. It was fantastic! Very homely, friendly service, and really made you feel like you were in a home rather then a hotel. Would absolutely recommend, and will be back again soon! Love it!

It was Ok, best thing about hotel was the position. It is a very tired looking hotel and is in need of an upgrade.....Staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a king suite and on the ground floor. You could hear a lot of noise from the room above.... Not a bad hotel and a lot better than most, but in need of some sprucing up.

Room Tip: Stay up stairs as it might be quieter.

When i book a twin room, and the hotel accepts my booking, I expect a twin room.

I don't expect to be called a half an hour before check in to say that they've double booked and yadda yadda yadda. There is NO excuse for doing this. It's NOT brain surgery to mark off the room as booked so as to avoid double-booking.

When either my wife or I have to sleep on the floor because of the messed up booking, AND we have to pay for the privilege, it's NOT acceptable. Add to that the fact that the apologetic staff said that they would discount the room, and then FAILED to do so is just poor management.

The breakfast is poor to middling. The cheese offered is that "plastic" bright orange cheese slices that are probably the genesis of the next mutant race of humans that will dominate the earth. The help yourself coffee is that filtered "stuff" that was typical decades ago.
Cereal choice is poor. No eggs etc.

For nearly $200 a night I'd like the bed I reserve, and at least a decent coffee! Pod machines are cheap enough to invest in.

The staff is very pleasant, but failure on the critical stuff = failure to satisfy the customer.

I wouldn't stay here again.

The hotel is very cute , like a little manor , very British .
There is a nice lounge were you can rest, watch TV , drink free coffee or tea .
The only thing the room is quite small not so much place to open your suitcase but charming with old furniture where they even hide the mini bar ....
The breakfast is included but nothing fancy , not even eggs .
A good choice of restaurant not far and many clubs for gay people , we didn't knew that when we booked .

The staff were helpful and made the stay comfortable and pleasant, thank you John and Raz. The room (suite) was clean, well appointed and comfortable.
The room decor a little dated and could do with a refresh. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows. Breakfast could have had fresh fruit instead of tinned fruits.
Location was perfect for us, bus stop directly across the road for trips to the harbour, restaurants and cafes were in walking distance with a great choice in either direction.
The shower in the bath was difficult to get the water on without getting your hair wet and if you are unsteady on your feet it is a little difficult to get in and out of.

Room Tip: Choose a room up stairs away from the staircase, the suites are best.
