We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon trip.
The hotel is all abouts its location. You are in possibly the best spot to sightsee in Sydney.
You are smack bang in the middle of the wonderful Rocks. The weekend market is literally out the front door.
As for the hotel, we paid and had the breakfast once, but there are cheaper places nearby. A bakery just down the road has a courtyard where you share your visit with wild parrots!
The rooms were fine, fairly standard, and the same as every other Holiday Inn I have ever been in. We changed room after 2 nights as we were on the 1st floor and it was noisy with deliveries early morning. The other room, on the back, overlooking the cobbled street and restaurants, was much better.
We paid for a taxi to and from the airport, which was £15 one way and £8 the other....either way it is the easiest mode of transport.
