Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Because it is a central hub for bus services and contains an entry point to Wynyard Station it usually goes unnoticed.
    if you have time it is a nice place to relax with ample seating and nice garden features. Good place to sit with your takeaway coffee and relax!

    I got a tip from a local to go to the station to see the "escalators on the ceiling"...I wasn't sure what to expect but, as I like to find interesting objects/places in a city, I went to check it out. Wow, what a cool find in Sydney! I love that they made the old escalators into a sculpture as a way to preserve the history.

    For those interested in military history, this is one of two significant war memorials very close together in the CBD.
    The main memorial is the ANZAC Cenotaph, which is prominently located in Martin Place. This one’s not so obviously positioned. You’ll find it across the road, on the opposite side of George St and set back in a small, open square.
    It commemorates the formation of Australia’s first regular infantry regiment. This didn’t happen until after WWII. In 1945 a small regular army of 3 units was created, drawing volunteers mostly from Australia’s World War II AIF Divisions.
    Modern in design, the memorial consists a long, low sandstone wall which features a series of 3D bronze figures. On the right hand side, an infantryman appears to charge from out of the wall, his rifle in his arms. It’s a dramatic image.
    On the other side, three figures have taken up a sheltered position and lie with their rifles ready. One appears to take aim while another is keeping up surveillance with a set of binoculars.
    Installed in 1976, the memorial is unusual because there are not very many monuments commemorating Australia’s involvement in the South-East Asian wars.
    The conflicts are listed on the memorial and include Korea 1950–53, Malaya 1955–63, Borneo 1963–66, Malaysia 1964–65, Vietnam 1965–75, Somalia 1993, Rwanda 1994–95, East Timor 1999, Iraq 2003, Afghanistan 2005.

    Before joining Laura's class at Spanish Blackboard Academy, I was using language Apps to self-teach Spanish for several months with very little progress. On starting a course here I realised just how much I underestimated just how incredibly helpful a good teacher can be! Within several weeks my Spanish had improved dramatically, and I ended up staying in Laura's class for 2 years, progressing from A1.1 through to B2.3, and am about to start a C1 course in Colombia. I can now speak confidently with my partner and in-laws in Spanish and am so grateful to Laura for all her hard work and patience. She really has an incredible gift for teaching and an infectious energy that helps to bring anyone at any level out of their shell to give it a go without fear of judgement. The classes are always different, flexible, full of fun, interactive activities and are highly tailored for varying levels. Laura's method of teaching is really practical and follows a logical progression to get you speaking with confidence as quickly as possible.

    The school was able to accommodate the shift to online learning during the pandemic with ease and we rarely felt we were missing out on anything during our online classes. They also provided great flexibility for those who lived further from the city.

    The extra-curricular activities for the school are a fantastic bonus that you would never get with self-taught learning, including Spanish language picnics, group outings with games and topical conversational classes where you can practice with students outside your own level. These were a great way to meet people and to practice with our peers in a light-hearted environment,

    Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this as a language school for any level of Spanish. Muchas gracias Laura por todo!

    Had a great time there for my son farewell on the 13 Jan. The music is the top amusement. Very good vibes. Top customer service! Food need to improve in quality and variety.
    But the ladies toilet need a full makeover PLEASE!!
    Waited for 20/ 30 minutes each time I wanted to used it. Two spaces cube for that kind of crowd is IMPOSSIBLE.
    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this venue in the future and I will definitely go back.

    Came here for take away lunch with colleagues. Upon arrival, Covid-19 checkin was strongly enforced; big kudos to management 👏. Had the cheeseburger with waffle chips for take away. Wait time was less than 10 mins. Burgers were fresh, not oily, the wagyu beef patty was cooked to perfection and nice thickness to it. Thoroughly happy from start to finish.

    What a find. Dieter has his regulars that seem like family in the way they are treated. Such a cool vibe and delicious menu. I had the Salmon Poke bowl, and my partner had the sauerkraut stack. both were amazing. Our takeaway coffees and muffins still kept us smiling into the afternoon.

    I played pub poker here with a few work friends and while the game was fun, the venue was ok. The bar service was good and the prices about average. The general consensus was that the food is standard pub fare, but inconsistent.

    Not the worst, but certainly not the best

    As My experience is in July its a cold winter month...
    I am a male mid 30s looking to party, I was excited to explore this place by myself and at first 15 mins I was checking out this place it was okay, then I went to grab a few drinks, and got a bit cold, so I put on my hoodie and dance. Then with in a meter there were a 3 security and one of them looking at me and signal for me to take my hoodie off. So I think he was around mid 20s middle eastern with facial hair trying to be tough and wanted some action. I ignored him and walk out immediately thinking I wanted to find a place to escape and enjoy.. Anyway I didn't want to be like a fool so I went to ask the manager about the dress code here if its allow to wear hoodies and he said its fine. I would not go back there because of the manners showing from the security. we pay for their wages, so be reasonable, if you cant have a good reason of doing something then don't start. Newbie security. Here is my 2 cents ' staffs action reflects on upper management', I am a reasonable man so please have boundaries with in reason.

    I stopped by this store as they were closing at 5:00PM. Eamon let me in, and was so gracious. I was there during a business trip and wanted to rent a bike. Eamon was very patient and showed me bikes and maps, and provided guidance on how to rent. Other stores on the same street were NOT as helpful.

    I called to reserve the bike, and rented the next day. Eamon and team adjusted the bike, provided a helmet, gave a tool to adjust the seat, etc. etc. Everyone on staff was equally helpful, kind, and courteous. They even recommended some great restaurants (e.g. Sake for Sushi in Circle Quay). And the staff are all avid riders too.

    The experience was awesome - I even bought a Clarence Street bike jersey. If you're going to ride a good road bike, save your time. Just go to Clarence and rent. The prices and bikes are awesome. Best part - the staff is really, really good.

    Highly recommended.
