We have a room on the 8 floor , looking over the bay.
It is truly magnificent. The room has a king size bed, a desk , an armchair .very spacious .
The hotel is actually on the waterfront.
We can see the largest cello in the world that is standing next to the Cruise port.
The hotel clerks are very friendly and helpful .
Price is decent. We are very pleased.

There was a fool up with our room booking so we were upgraded to a king suite. It was only for one night. The girls were very helpful at the desk did thier best to make us comfortable. The hotel is beautiful and very clean. We took a walk that night down the board walk and took our little girl to the play ground located at the end of the board walk. Excellent stay and service. Look forward to staying there again next summer.

The service was great and the room was clean. We received breakfast coupons and the food was great. The waitress was kind and checked up on us regularly . We would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Sydney area.

Have stayed here numerous times. Lobby newly renovated and very nice. Rooms are dated but very clean and have everything you need. Beds are comfortable and clean.

Great location and near all sorts of restaurants.

We stayed here waiting for our ferry to NFLD.

Everything about our stay was lovely. We were in a king suite with a pullout coach on the 8th floor with a harbour view! The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and the kids loved the pool! We stayed 2 nights. One breakfast was off the menu and one was buffet-included in the room price! The staff was friendly and helpful. We walked the warf each evening (right outside of the hotel) and enjoyed live music and beautiful sunsets! We would definitely stay again and we'd recommend this hotel for any visit to Sydney.

We booked this hotel last minute while travelling around Nova Scotia. We were very impressed with how friendly the girls at the front desk were. Our room was as promised, clean and had a great view from the 7th floor. Having the boardwalk along the water is a big plus. We took a stroll after dinner.
We had breakfast in the dining room in the morning. A little pricey but a great view while we ate. The restaurant was understaffed and quite a few people came in and could not sit as there were numerous dirty tables waiting to be cleared.
Overall though we were happy and would return.

When I arrived the room I was given we saw the room wasn't cleaned yet, sheets and bedding were on the floor. My family and I went back to front desk and we were immediately upgraded to a King suite with a pull-out couch on the top floor. The view is beautiful of the harbour, the bed was incredibly comfortable, I'd say the room wasn't that clean, there was stains on the carpet, and the bathroom floor and tub needed a thorough cleaning. Overall impression of the room was pretty basic, but the bed and view made up for it. We had breakfast in the restaurant in the morning - only the 'buffet' was available. Standard basic food, faux scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, cereal, juice. Have of the hot food chafing dishes were empty (no eggs, sausage or waffles), so we had to ask for them to replenish and that took an extra 30 minutes. Not a fan of having to wait when all you want to do is go out and do the tourist thing. Overall, I'd probably stay here again strictly because the bed was so comfortable and my hub and son liked the pool.

Room Tip: Ask for higher room, with a harbour view. Make sure to check the room and if dirty at all, they wil...
