We stayed recently overnight in their refurbished rooms above the hotel. What a great place to discover. We had been to the hotel on many occasions for a drink and food but we only discovered a short time ago that the hotel offered accommodation. On first look, given the age of the building we didnt expect much but the website showed a completely different picture. The rooms were refurbished about 10 years ago but all look new and up to date AND they all have ensuites, which to us was a real plus.
The room we had was spacious, plently of light, comfortable king size bed, good pillows and warm. Just an inviting place to stay. Cost was very reasonable at $200 per night. I challenge anyone to find accommodation that competes at this price in the Rocks.
Included in the tariff was a continental breakfast. I am generally a bacon and eggs man but I stayed with the continental breakfast and was glad I did. Plenty of cereal and toast and individual fresh fruit plates, with tea and coffee. Plenty of food to start the day.
The only downside is the 3 or 4 flights of stairs to be climbed to the rooms. Its to be expected in a building this age and really wasn't a problem but it may be an issue for anyone with overly bad legs who may struggle with stairs, no lift.
We love the Rocks area and always look for opportunities to spend time here. Now that we have found ongoing reasonable accommodation, our visits will be more frequent.
You wont be disappointed with your stay here
