“Trip to Sydney”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

I would like to say the hotel staff and service is very good. The view from my room was outstanding. Breakfast very filling and "happy hour" in the bar interesting. But like most people sharing my room with North Sydney Metro Station was anew experience. I was on the 3rd floor and it is my understanding that the higher you go the less invasive is the train noise. Value for money it is a good deal but you have to consider the noise. Its OK if you have just arrived from London and you fall into bed!!!
Outstanding complimentary shoe shine!!!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the bridge are outstand - but get a room on the top floors!!!

the hotel is built on top of the the train line. the noise from the trains made my whole room shake. the train may as well have been running through my hotel room it was that loud. the trains go until 1am and start again at 5am. so good luck sleeping. apart from that. the room was clean and service was great.

Dear Mike T,

I am very sorry you did not find your stay at the North Sydney Harbourview Hotel as enjoyable as you would have liked. I have noted your comment regarding your room allocation and subsequent train noise, and am sorry you were not happy on this occasion.

We can put a notation in our system to ensure you are allocated a room on a higher floor, should you choose to return.

If you would like to contact me direct I would only be too happy to help - please call 02 9955 0499.

Kind Regards,
Levon Karkour

Having secured a great four day stay rate we were looking forward to our excellent value accommodation. No sooner had we pulled into the reception area when the magnanimity of the postion became apparent...A VIEW TO DIE FOR. The wow factor kicked in immediately. The helpful and cheery front desk soon had us pointed in the right direction.
Opened the door to the room and there it was in all its spleandour...the most gorgeous view of the harbour and city that you might ever imagine, partner and I were mesmerised. OK the room was a tad smallish but completely adequate and with all the inclusions you would expect.
The room was delightfully clean and the bed with its crisp white linen was a true delight and afforded us a plush, comfortable sleep. The lifts were a treat with fast and efficient delivery to your designated destination.
The only reason my rating missed 'excellent' was because of the so so restaurant...pedestrian fare for a princely sum...but no worry plenty of eateries within a stones throw of the building. Positioned over North Sydney rail station made it a park the car for the weekend deal with excellent public transport available. All highly recommended.

Room Tip: As it is built in an arc shape all rooms have a view!!!

We went here and booked a weekend getaway for my partners birthday. Rooms were clean, view was fabulous and the service was amazing! They left a hand written note, chocolates and champagne for us which was a lovely touch. Reasonably priced, will definitely be back.

I stayed here for a week visiting family with one of my kids in June. The room is a great size with a fab view of the bridge. The bathroom is really nice and the beds were comfortable and the room was nice and clean throughout our stay.

We landed in Oz early morning so went straight to the hotel hoping we could check in and was VERY, VERY happy that the room was ready for us so we could shower and change after our long haul flight. Check in was great - and staff during the entire stay were always very friendly and very helpful.

We only ate at the hotel a couple of times - dinner one evening which was very nice and staff, again, were very friendly - and we also did the breakfast buffet one morning. Again, staff were fantastic but the food on offer was just ok. I've seen much better. It seemed to be more geared to a business traveler so there really wasn't much that was appealing to a 9 year old unfortunately. There were lots of cafes nearby to get a much better coffee and breakfast from though which is what we did!

No doubt about it, you do hear the trains but it didn't bother us. It's a rumble that gradually builds then subsides - so it wasn't a problem for us as we were pretty jet-lagged. The flip side of that is the convenience of having the train station so close which was really handy.

On many occasions now I have stayed at this hotel (booked by my employer as a place near to Sydney Office.)
Location is very good - directly above North Sydney Station and only 1 stop between North Sydney and the city.
Views from the rooms are excellent - Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour .... see photos.
Staff are always friendly and professional and the bar is welcoming. Restaurant is also excellent which also extends to room service.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good place to stay in Sydney.

Had 2 nights at this hotel with the team. Accommodation was great had a lovely view of the bridge and luna park from my room. Room service was very good and there was plenty of choice for breakfast. Only down side for me was no gym and when you leave in the dark and come back in the dark you don't want to be going for a power walk so a gym on site would have been good. Standard overall was very good and in a good location. Some of the team heard rumbles in the night from the trains as it's next door to north Sydney station. Great for restaurant and bar ops too!
