This is going to be a repetition of some of my previous comments. My lovely princess and I stayed here again last week for two nights and were impressed that they continue with the high standard previously set. There are not many hotels where the General Manager will join you in the bar or lounge to make sure you are enjoying your stay - Heather (the GM) does.
We booked well in advance and got a good deal on a lovely room on the 10th floor overlokking the Botanic Gardens and down the Harbour. Be aware that if you book through a third party your booking might not be what you expect. Check with the hotel.
The location and price are the best in Sydney. The ferries, trains and buses are five minutes away and you can catach a train direct to the airport. The Opera Houes is about seven minutes walk and The Rocks about ten so location is prime.
Our room was ready early and Kylie (?) at reception made us very welcome.and we were able to unpack and go out for the morning. The concierge Cod showed us to our room and explained all the necessary equipment. We had lunch in The Bar (a haven in a busy city) and recommend the chicken wings - senational.
Be aware that all rooms appear to be different. Ours had a large bathroom with one sink but we have been in others with a "his and hers" sink. Plenty of hot water and towels will wash away the cares of the day. We had a king bed and a choice of pillows, the flat screen tv had all we needed. Remember that your luggage spends more time in the room than you!. Try drinks in The Bar and if Ronny is serving ask him about his kick-boxing skills.
Evening drinks in The Bar are very good with a wide choice and knowledgeable staff. The weather was warm so we enjoyed the roof top pool several times.
This hotel is not glass and concrete but has a nice warm log fire in the lounge and is full of antque furniture. The staff are not antique and will really look after you.
I would again wholly recomend this place and we will be back in November.
