My wife and I spent a lovely week here, wanting a small independent hotel close to Sydney city centre by public transport and we weren't dissappointed. Excellent links into the city make this an ideal location in a suburb which was busy but not over-bearing. Atmosphere was relaxed, breakfast lacked a little choice over a week period but was perfectly adequate. Plenty of places to eat locally from take-away pizza right opposite the hotel, lovely ice-cream parlours, through to good restaurants, recommeded by Alan, our host at the hotel, all within easy walking distance. Some of the hotel furniture and fittings are looking a bit tired as has been said in other reviews but, for us, this added to the charm. One tip on the public transport system if you are going to be there for a week; buy a "MyMulti3" ticket for A$60 and you can travel by train, bus and ferry pretty well without limits, even a train to the Blue Mountains. We used the ticket just for a mini "cruise" on the river down to Parramatta. The hotel is excellent value-for-money at a time when, for UK people, everything looks quite expensive in Australia because of the exchange rate.
Overall good value, great location, welcome, service and cleanliness.
