Good friendly reception. Room was clean. The bed springs were completely sunken on one side of the Queen size mattress. You could see it even without lying on it - impossible to sleep on. The other side was fine so ok for one person.
The room is very noisy if you're looking for an early nights' sleep - quietens down closer to midnight. Excellent location, close to the airport, great places to eat and good service by staff.

If your looking for great "Original" Sydney pub to stay in then look no further than the Captain Cook in Botony. Nice clean room, cold beer , great food and a perfect location to the airport with only $10 cab ride.

Great place to stay if your not looking for all the bells and whistles, good friendly staff, room was very clean and tidy, down stairs the pub was great nice cold beers and meal without the price tag of the larger Hotel chains. Already know were I'm staying on my next Sydney Trip.

From the moment you walk in the door to the time you leave you are treated with respect. When I arrived in the early evening there was only one person on manning the pub and reservations. Ally was amazing. Not only was she great at multi-tasking but she also never lost her cool. She was so helpful and made one feel very welcome.

The hotel room was great. It was spacious, clean, newly renovated & quiet. Which was a surprise due to it being above a pub. Had a great night sleep and when leaving was greeted again with a smile. And to top it off you are able to do your clothes washing for free with the washer and dry provided on the ground level.

Buses stop outside the hotel every 15 minutes to the city.

I highly recommend Captain Cook Hotel and will definitely be staying again when in need of a room again at short notice.

I was caught out by the weather and crazy curfew at Sydney airport while in transit to Dubai, along with 1000 or so other people that night. I was fortunate enough to find a room at the Captain Cook Hotel in Botany. Arriving early morning and leaving late afternoon I found the hotel to be an oasis of calm and ideal place to spend my enforced stopover. Located around 8 - 10 minutes from the International terminal by taxi it is an ideal spot for laying over in Sydney. There are plenty of eateries around the hotel and there is also a supermarket nearby. If you like, you can hang with the locals in the public bar. The room was well appointed and clean and the shower was superb. The bed was very comfortable and very welcome after a sleepless night stuck in the airport. Free WiFi internet was provided. I found the staff to be very welcoming, efficient and helpful. All in all, it was a very satisfactory experience and I can thoroughly recommend the Captain Cook Hotel as a great place to stay in Botany.
