Great position and views! I would stay again! Breakfast buffet is one of the best and probably the best part of the stay that was part of the package purchased. Good Value. Also received two lovely beach towels that were also part of the package that were well used.

Arrival was efficient, and swift.
Rooms were immaculate, well serviced, and had everything required for a couple of nights away.
Location is fantastic, being in a quiet area, but a short stroll from Crown Street Mall.
I didn't have dinner, but breakfast was a very good attempt at a buffet, with some minor quibbles.
Excellent value all round.

This hotel is fairly new, modern, squeaky clean, our room was tastefully decorated. Comfy bed, very spacious bathroom . We had great views overlooking the golf course & the ocean with extensive views down the coast. Situated directly opposite the footy stadium. Plenty off street parking directly in front. Easy walk into CBD & restaurants.macdonalds around corner...too easy .we had a great deal on room rates...unbeatable. !! Weve stayed in a view hotels in the gong, but we've decided Chifely Hotel will now be our first preference. We had some finger food downstairs .....delicious !!!
Staff very obliging. We had a great weekend.

We stayed over the last weekend and found the Chifley to be a rare find.From the check in which was prompt courteous and friendly to the overall efforts of all staff we encountered during our stay was outstanding.
we dined in their Cgrill restaurant and found the food a great suprise as it was the best steaks we have had in a long time and the presentation to be up there with Sydney restaurants.The death by chocolate is a must for dessert.Restaurant service was very good and attentive.
Next morning breakfast was excellent with all you could want in choice and quality all that of a five star hotel..Recommend the bircher museli..
Checkout was a fitting farewell by Jerlinda who was excellent,friendly and a great smile.
Recommend the Chifley anytime.

I absolutely loved my stay. I booked this as a special on booking.com for a week night and it was fantastic. The staff were friendly, the room was HUGE! I MEAN HUGE! The views were one side over the water, the other view was of construction being done in town. Had to pay for parking but it was very secure and close. I'd definetely go back, but not while 8.5 months pregnant as I could not get out of their bath!! Top job Chifley!

Bunkum to the No party policy...you should have seen the empties on the 9th floor. Noise was not good either. Third stay but now really put off. Pity that trashbaggers ruin these hotels for other patrons.

Room Tip: Try Novotel next time...
