“Great Hotel in need of a refresh”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I stayed at the Grace for 5 nights on a business trip. The room was good, clean and quiet and the Wifi worked, albeit somewhat slow and, as often, expensive. It should be free or at normal prices. Staff are OK and not too visible. The building is very interesting and some 80 years old with an interesting history. The hotel is at risk of looking jaded. The location is excellent, the building and the interior could be spectacular but just feel tired. More should be made of its past. Breakfast, expensive again, is just average or even below par. I can stay there again but without expectations of a spectacular or romantic experience.

We had to head to Sydney for a wedding and chose The Grace due to it's convenient location. It was quite easy to catch a cab over to Mosman for the wedding and we could also explore most of the CBD by foot.
Unfortunately the reception staff mucked up our check-in, forgetting to take the holding deposit on the first day so we had to re-check in on the second day.
The hotel itself is very clean and well renovated. The room was amazingly spacious for an inner city hotel and we loved that it had a proper shower rather than having to stand in the bath.

Room Tip: Get a good deal by booking 30 days ahead of your stay for 20% off.

We stayed two nights on a special package with breakfast. We were very impressed with the cleanliness, the friendliness and the convenience. It is a delightful hotel, very quiet and comfortable and full of character. We will stay there again.

Stayed just the one night on business and could not have been more impressed. Company had me booked in with free wifi and parking which was a bonus. Room was terrific and the bed was bliss. Stayed on the 5th floor and the water pressure in the shower was marvellous! The hotel is right in the heart of the City with so many places to go to which are just a short walk.The building is also magnificent in its won right. Could not fault from check in to check out.

I was very happy with my stay at the Grace Hotel. The room was wonderful. Clean and tidy. The staff were helpful and polite. The location was fine, close to the train station. Within walking distance to attractions.

I really enjoy the Grace, as it has such great charm and character. The king coil beds are amazing, but I was allocated a double room this time which have cheaper beds, as they are part of the family room configuration. No use wasting good beds on kids right? Anyway, I was in room 513 with a boring view of the old pub and offices across the road. The service staff were great and the amenities were good. Next time I'll pay more attention to the room selection.
