Selected the Abby Hotel on location that was available on the Australia Day long weekend to take 2 teens to a concert in Centennial Park. Pricing was great for 3 and the Location was better than expected. Only short stroll to Oxford Street and taxis available all hours to get to the park. Discovered it was only approx 5 mins from Museum station and it was a nice downhill walk from Centennial Park which took me approx 20mins. There is also a handy convenience store 2mins up the road.
We arrived around 1pm and was told there would be a delay on check in as room was not ready but within minutes was allowed to access our room. Our room was spacious and clean. We had room 218 in the pool area. Sound does travel abit when people are having fun in the pool but the hours 830am to 830pm- not really a problem.. This room had a window which opened to a window well, lovely breeze but the noise travels right up and can be very loud. Heard what am assuming a/cs or similar kicking in at different times. Would recommend only using A/c with window shut if noise is a problem for you to sleep. My teens slept through everything no worries> not extremely noisy just woke up once or twice. No decent lighting for reading but no real concern there as only spend 1 night. Loved the ambiance of the room and décor. I did order room service and was very impressed. reasonable priced meals from a local pub (?), served within timeframe told, and was excellent! Very friendly staff at front desk.
Only confusion was in arriving. We told our taxi the name and address and he replied you are staying at the Cambridge? We said no..found out Cambridge Hotel and Abby Hotel are same in building. Would have been easier if on booking as Abby on Wotif came up 208 Riley and Cambridge is 212 Riley, mentioned co-sharing but again no real big issue. Teens spent some time in the pool and loved it. Over all, great value in an amazing location. Would stay again.
