We booked a 2 night stay in the courtyard room, it was well decorated, modern, clean and equiped with a safe, Bosse sound system, tv, Nespresso machine, hot & cold water billi. Decent size bathroom with a rain shower and nice toiletries. A very comfortable large bed with a selection of pillows. Outside the view is a very tiny bamboo/pebble garden with a very tall grey wall backdrop, this complements the trendy boutique style and provides visual privacy.
The breakfast was superb! A selection of fruit, yoghurt, cerials, breads and a choice of mouth watering cooked delights, my favourite was the spring omelettes. The roof top bar is a must with great views of the city and Story bridge.
It is approximately a 20 min walk from the hotel to Queen street or a 10 min walk to the nearest ferry station. City Hopper provides a free ferry service and runs every 30 mins. We found it easy to get around on foot, although it is quite hilly. There are some great eating establishments around the New Farm area.
The staff were friendly and attentive. I would not hesitate in recommending this lovely hotel.
