adult family trip

Staff were very helpful and friendly. Within walking distance of the top tourist spots. Right across the street from train station, close to stop for hop on, hop off bus. Even though it was drizzling while we were there, we were able to walk most places without any problems.

Excellent location

Arrived early but was booked in and unpacking within 15 minutes. Excellent location within 10 minutes walking distance from Harbour bridge and Opera house. All staff very obliging and friendly. Prices on a par with outside bars. This is not a ultra modern hotel but I am glad this has not been demolished and the building is being preserved.

Large, modern hotel Ideally situated for Cirrcular Quay, Buses and Wynyard Railway Station.

Not cheap, but only to be expected in such a popular place and handy location. Staff more than friendly, helpful and welcoming. Would have no hesitation in returning in the future.

Rooms are tired. Windows need

Rooms are tired. Windows need cleaning, we asked and were told it was a film on inside of window. WE took a damp face cloth and with a wipe they cleaned up easily. Bed was also very tired, edges of bed mattress appeared to have broken down, centre was OK. Holes in the sheets provided. Some mould in bath/shower. Security is very lax, anyone can use the elevator to access a floor, no security key slot

Was surprised at how run down

Was surprised at how run down the rooms were even though I am aware it is an older hotel. There was gungy black matter around the taps in the bathroom and the bathroom did not appear to be very clean. Whenever we changed the channel on the tv it made a loud clunking sound, like someone was banging on the door. The air conditioner was very old fashioned and I could not work out how to turn it off (there were no instructions) whihc resulted in me coughing all night. It wasn't the relaxing, comnfortable night I was looking forward to.

My Partner and I booked this hotel

My Partner and I booked this hotel purely on the picture featured of the "Billiard Room". The pool tables there definitley need some refurbishment!! Not as glamourous as the photo depicted :-) But a very enjoyable stay anyway. Will most likely stay again, Cheers
