Stayed 5 days early July at 1888 Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed this boutique hotel.
Stumbled across promotional material for 1888 while on a work trip in Wellington NZ on an AIR NZ flight (Air NZ's Kia Ora Magazine) and from this we made our booking.
Wasn't disappointed when we arrived ...
1888 was exactly how it had been sold in the pictures.
1888 has a fresh exciting feel to it which is complimented by the youthfulness of its staff.
1888 staff members I applaud your customer service approach and acknowledge your management team for the emphasis they have taken with their staff in ensuring customer satisfaction during your stay is a priority.
1888 team up with Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre which my husband and I used during our stay ...awesome facility, don't pass up the opportunity to go while your there!!!
1888 is situated a stones throw from the hub of Darling Harbour ....food, vino, shopping, rail etc....
Other essential amenities are in close proximity e.g. local superette & laundry plus the bonus was we got to explore the local community.
Our room was a welcome retreat at the end of our day ...crispy sheets on our super soft cloudy bed coupled with the most comfortable pillows.... OMG ....heaven....Expense is not saved at 1888 to ensure your stay is memorable
Kirk -Thanks for directions and navigational skills around your fast paced city ...we love Sydney & your mall at Parramatta
Priscilla - Your calm demeanor when I was pushing the wrong phone digits in our room was appreciated
Peter - Love your effervesant personality ...keep people smiling, sometimes we don't do enough of this
So in ending....If we could we'd happily & permanently cross the ditch and move in forever ....
DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT 1888 Hotel ....it's got real soul!!!!
