I stayed in 2 rooms over 2 nights at the Shepherds Arms. I was pleasantly surprised when shown to my room upon arrival. Had a four poster bed with a large leather sofa, sideboard with a mirror, copper plumbing which had the most amazing water pressure. For a large room, it was very warm and the spa bath was a treat on the cold wind. I extended my stay, the room had been previously booked and so I was shifted to Rm 11, which was in the main building, towards the back of the Hotel. A bit smaller, I found this room to be nice and cozy, floor was a bit creaky and then I noticed how the traffic noise was missing. I noted that housekeeping changed my towels ea day, which was nice. I never bumped into any other patrons throughout my stay. It surely was a treasure and though I didn't partake in the restaurant, having the bar there was handy. Location was handy to CBD, straight down Bowen Street to Parliament, The Terrace or Lambton Quay. Would recommend this Hotel for the romantics, or the leisure travelers travelling the country. Old english, tasteful & cosy.
