Rooms were comfortable but very stuffy. Staff at the front desk were very rude when I called to enquire about my booking & even more rude when I went to check in. Great location though. Close to everything.

Lucky enough to have harbour views. Room has everything we need - fridge for wine and breakfast / packed lunch bits. Central but peaceful. 10 mins to kings x tube, half hour walk across the gardens for opera house and views of bridge. Harry the night manager is a star!

I stayed here at the end of last year for a few nights at the end of a trip to Australia.

Watch out though for the closing time of the gardens......

There's a Woolworth's grocery store directly across the street as well as a wonderful deli called Bottega del Vino. We arrived early and the hotel staff was kind enough to allow us to...

Potts Point - lots of shops & restaurants. Kings Cross Station - 5 minutes walk. Opel...
