I stayed at the Collingwood on a recent business trip when the CBD hotels all seemed ridiculously overpriced. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room and the private balcony was a nice addition. The hosts were absolutely lovely and put on a great breakfast. The nicest surprise of all was getting to wonder round Paddington on a sunny morning. A gleaming, friendly and buzzing place to be - even at 8am! (a time when people in my home city can barely bring themselves to grunt hello!) Will go back.
