Only stayed one night here for a gig in Sydney. The hotel is really easy to walk to from circular quay train station but there's a lot of steps. I went into the bar to ask for reception and one of the staff looked after me, even carrying my bag up stairs for me.
The room was fine. Bedclothes were clean and the carpet looked relatively new. I was a bit worried about noise as the bar downstairs is busy. When I got back at nearly 11 the bar was still going strong but I managed to get to sleep and when I woke up a bit later all was quiet.
My room was right beside the breakfast room which meant being woken at about 6.30. Breakfast was toast and cereal.
I didn't realise when I booked the room wasn't ensuite and I hadn't brought flip flops for the shower. Regardless I had a shower in the two shower bathroom and it was one of the best showers I've ever had. The water pressure was amazing.
This hotel is a good option if you just want a bed in a central location. As seems to happen a lot in Oz the term heritage seems to mean not refurbished or well maintained, my window wouldn't close on the top pane. It's got some nice heritage features but needs a lot of TLC. I may stay again but probably not. If you do go bring flip flops for the shower.
