I have stayed here a few times. After an absence of four or five years, I arrived and was apparently recognised by a member of staff, which made me feel welcome. This is a quirky hotel, with an old fashioned feel, which I liked. Staff were polite, helpful and businesslike. Housekeeping was excellent. There's also a laundry area for clients....

Fantastic views across the harbour. Staff friendly and shuttle bus was good. Bathroom was a little bit tired but clean. Supermarkets and restaurants close by, kings cross area. 30 min leisurely walk through the botanic gardens to the Opera house.

I booked one of the studios with bridge view and I wasn't disappointed. The view was amazing, specially during night times. The roomsize was acceptable. The old bathroom was clean but needs maintainance. The small poolarea was refreshing after a day of sightseeing. I liked the suburb very much.

The rooms are extremely small for families with a camp bed being laid across the foot of the other beds. This camp bed is a fold up Spring mattress with I found so uncomfortable to lay on that I had to lie pillows down to lie on. I imagine the room would be good for 2 or even 3 but...

This hotel is located in the the Potts Point area of Sydney which is a upscale area with a number of shops and restaurants. We had a nice room on the seventh floor that had a picture perfect view of the harbor. Although not very large, the room had a small kitchenette that allowed us to have some meals in...

We stayed here over NYE and the experience was lovely, in terms of the party on the roof to see the fireworks, and the staff throughout our stay were great. But to be honest, without the fabulous view from our room (I cannot call it a suite) and there are only a few rooms on each floor with a view...

The location of this hotel is it's major asset. It's central, pleasant and vibrant neighbourhood which will cater to most needs of the urban traveller - whether on a business or family trip. However the hotel i quite basic but clean. It unfortunately oversells itself a bit by the photos on the website. Staff is very friendly and helpful with...
