Reasonable

This is not high end but it is a good value for your money. Our room was small, congested, clean and equipped with a good bed. Food service was there but, again, not high end. For downtown Sydney, this is a deal.

Half the Room for Half the Price

A very interesting experience. The hotel rooms are tiny -- I really had to walk sideways to get around the bed. But everything was clean and the service decent. The room price was half what you would pay for typical CBD hotels. The breakfast was fine, and also half what the big hotels charge.

Best value ever!

Amazing room! Amazing location! Very clean and our room was much more spacious than other reviews described. The blankets are a bit rough and the walls are a bit thin but no other complaints! The staff were very courteous and helpful. Castlereagh Boutique Hotel is definitely a hidden gem in Sydney. Best value for cost!!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Hyde Park is just two blocks away and the Opera House and Sydney Harbor are all about a 25 minute walk. The fish market is also about a 25 minute (brisk) walk as well!

Lovely old hotel right in the heart of great shopping

What a great find, this lovely old hotel was located within easy walking distance to fine shopping, the town hall and other amenities. The staff was most accommodating. Sophie was a jewel of the first order. The renovated dining room had its own charm. I would recommend this lovely space to anyone interested in a step back in time.

Jewel of Sydney

Grand boutique hotel. Beautiful cozy room with mini bar, flat screen TV. updated shower, a/c, really everything we needed. Ate breakfast in beautifully appointed dining room.. great value for the money. Location was perfect: taxis, buses, Starbucks, pie shop (meat pies, etc.) bars, nightlife, Dior, Chanel, all kinds of shopping, eating, exploring. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to everyone. Plus it is within walking distance of Opera House, Doyle's and Circular Quay.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Can walk to Circular Quay and Doyle's other restaurant is. Or you can take a ferry nearby to go to Doyle's on Watson's Bay. When you get off the ferry, there is a Doyle's take out (cash only) for 1/2 price of sit down Doyle's, but without the ambiance.

Castlereagh basic room

Standard rooms do not have a window and are at the rear of the hotel, got moved to a room at the front and this was better, at least we had light. A bit of traffic noise even on 10th floor, staff friendly, great location 10 minutes to all the major sites and 2 mins to train station with links to airport, but the best and cheapest way to the airport is the hotel transfer service €16 p.p

Great hotel in central location.

Great position just 15 minute walk from Darling Harbour and just 5 minutes from train station. The twin room we had was rather small and had very little natural daylight but was spotlessly clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Great value for money
