We travel and stay in hotels frequently so it was a joy to stay in one with a bit of personality. The welcome was good and friendly.
We stayed in room 1 which looked out onto the carpark. Good very comfy twin beds and it was useful to have tea making facilities. The room was spotless. The availability of wifi was appreciated and we were invited to print off our travel tickets using their computer and printer. The bathroom was a little small and will I am sure be one of those to be refurbished but it served us well for two nights.
The library was excellent and looked inviting. The display of memorabilia was interesting.
The choice at breakfast was good. I like tea in a cup and saucer so that was appreciated! As was the chance of a teapot in which to leave it to brew. Even the small leak in the breakfast area was fine - we live in a leaking old house so for us the experience was just like home.
An ideal venue for those who like the Notting Hill/Kensington vibe in the UK (trendy, fashionable etc) - not really us but it was easy to get into the centre.
If we come back to Sydney, we shall stay again. Being English, we liked the whole atmosphere. A bit of comfort and relaxation on an otherwise frenetic holiday. Thank you for having us.
