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!!

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.

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

Half the Room for Half the Price

I needed to overnight in Sydney, and I found this 4-star hotel for half the price of other 4-star hotels in the area. I probably shouldn't have been surprised that the room was the tiniest imaginable. In order to get past the bed and reach the tiny bathroom, I needed to walk sideways; I couldn't fit walking forward. But things were otherwise what you would expect regarding cleanliness and quality. There was an elegant old dining room, and a decent buffet breakfast was also half the price you would expect in a 4-star Sydney hotel. The hotel is, by the way, also the local Masonic lodge, so look for that on the awning, not the hotel name.

Great Staff, Average Hotel

The staff were very nice and hospitable, letting us fill our water bottles every morning from the bar (helpful since water costs an armload and there are 3 fountains in the entire city). The room is small, with an uncomfortable bed and the scratchiest blanket ever. Shower leaked into the main room. Half the tv channels were snow. I remembered that internet was included but then the booklet said $10 a day but then the staff gave it to us for free, so who knows. Great location, a block away from Hyde Park and 15 min walk to the Opera House. If the hotel is just where you sleep and not a big focus of your vacation, I'd recommend. If you want to come back and relax and stay in a day or so, not for you.
