We needed a clean comfortable hotel for a night before leaving on a cruise. The Great Southern didn't disappoint. It oozes character and the management has done a great job of highlighting the Hotel's history. The room we used in the heritage section was clean and comfortable but may be a tad small if you were planning an extended stay. Staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Try out the restaurant where you will get an excellent meal at great price. This hotel is located in close vicinity to Central Station making it an easy walk if you are arriving in Sydney by train.
