Very spacious and comfortable room with a great view across the city. Great amenities - kitchenette which was great as I could prepare food/drinks whenever I wanted while I was suffering jet lag! Ideal location for exploring the CBD and Surry Hills. Restaurant on the ground floor is fantastic. Definitely go for a high floor room.

The same location but world apart facilities. Our journey began from Abbey to Cambridge to Adge ...... and it was only because of Adge we managed to survive. A big thankyou to some of the staff members other wise the trip could have been a disaster.
Hotel has a nice location and toy can walk to all good places.

Hi Kashif S,

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. It is great to hear that you were able to experience all of our 3 hotels. Abey is 3.5 star good value for money, Cambridge is a good quality fully refurbished 4 star hotel and ADGE a 5 Star upscale boutique apartment style hotel.

It is also pleasing to hear that we were able to find your niche and accommodate at ADGE hotel.

Abey was the original hotel that you had booked which as mentioned offers the best value for money. We are glad to hear that our team were able to help you with your needs.

The location of Surry Hills boasts abundance of cafes, restaurant, shopping where you truly receive a Unique Sydney experience.

Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to ADGE.

Kind regards,

The room was a bit spartan but very clean.

The reception staff were very helpful and gave us good recommendations for restaurants in the area.

Good location in Surry Hills. Everything you need is in walking distance.

The pool area was a bit noisy in the morning but it didn't disrupt us too much.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the pool area if possible.

Hi milo2009,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. Firstly I’d like to apologise for the interference you may have incurred from the pool area. Due to the pool being surrounded by rooms we have restricted hours of access. However it is great to know this didn’t disrupt your stay too much and you were able to enjoy your clean room, along with the location of the hotel. It is pleasing to know you experienced the high standard of service from the Front Desk team, assisting with recommendations for local eateries. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

King Regards,

Our modern spacious premium room turned out to be the most basic small room reminding me of a hostel rather than a 4 star hotel. The staff were lovely and symperthetic but this hotel really needs to address its problems. Our room was down a narrow corridor close to 3 more doors the noise was bad and the smell of smoke was terrible. We did have patio doors that opened up to a dark alleyway with cigarette stumps and a wall of another building. In our room 2 beds that were comfy and very clean a old wardrobe resembling something from the 1960's and inside it a safe a kettle a mini bar and candy bars sitting on top. There was a small square table resembling a pasting/ craft table with 2 plastic chairs in a small nook behind a built in cupboard that you near hit as you entered the room. We had booked a week here but moved on ASAP the next morning to the Swissotel that was amazing!

Hi Shaz D,

Thank you for sharing your recent experience with us, we take all feedback received seriously as it is vital to ensure continual improvements throughout our accommodation.
Cambridge Hotel offers a great value for money in a 4 Star Sydney hotel category. It is great to hear that you found the other hotel amazing however disappointing we were not able to meet your expectations.
We are continually upgrading the furnishings throughout the whole hotel and it’s disappointing that you found the room old fashioned. However it’s great you enjoyed the comfort and cleanliness of the room along with the high standard of service our team provided.

Kind Regards,

The hotel was located nicely (close to Oxford Street and Central Station with good pub just outside), the room was nice and quiet. The only complaint we had is that, if you had to bathroom door open, you could hear the lift doors open and close and chime.
