I stayed here for 3 nights in December, using it as a base to catch up with friends.

The positives:
This is no cookie-cutter hotel, being an historic home so it feels fun and unusual staying here. My queen room had a small sitting area with chaise lounge and desk (neither of which I used) but handy to have.

The location, on the beautiful Queen Street Woollahra shopping strip, Oxford St literally around the corner and stunning Centennial Park across the road, not to mention a quick drive to Westfield Bondi Junction, the city and the airport, makes it a winner every time.

The car parking with the electronic security gate at $33/day is a bargain compared to getting a ticket so all good there although I was never convinced reception had actually worked out how many customers were using it each day, so I tended to park by 6pm each night to make sure I got a spot.

The negatives:
You get a voucher for breakfast. It would be kinder and more accurate to call it a breakfast snack, choosing from a muffin, or toast, or a ham & cheese croissant etc plus a coffee or tea. My croissant was barely toasted the first day although I did ask for and get a much hotter croissant the second day but nothing out of the ordinary.

There is a huge sign on the bathroom that you MUST KEEP YOUR DOOR SHUT as steam will trigger the fire alarm and a false alarm calling out the firies will cost you a $1,700 callout fee. Well, nothing like making you feel relaxed, hey?

The first morning I had a shower and discovered the shower curtain is too short, and thus floods the floor. Paranoid about setting off the alarm, I threw open the window and thought I'd rather be seen naked than wear a $1,700 fine WHICH I WOULDN'T HAVE TO PAY IF THEY HAD INSTALLED A CEILING FAN TO TAKE THE STEAM OUT...

As others have mentioned, reception hours are 7am-3pm so you've got to make sure your flight arrives before 3pm so you can get into your room.

Despite all this, I would probably stay here again.

The hotel is in a great location and has car parking. We stayed in a Queen Suite which was clean and comfortable. We also liked the fact there was a lounge area to relax in and a upper level deck with tables and chairs. There is a cafe which opens until 3.00pm, at the front of the hotel, which is very convenient.

Our experience was very pleasant and we found the staff friendly and helpful. We'd certainly stay there again, as you can't beat the awesome location of the hotel.

My husband and I have stayed in this hotel several times before,& I wonder if it has changed ownership.
It’s lost it’s warmth & friendly staff, & the charming antique furniture in the king room we stayed in was gone. At $250/ night we expected a welcome back, but had 2 women at reception telling us they knock off at 3pm & nobody is around till 7am, so if you lock yourself out bad luck. At 7.20 this morning there was nobody at reception to call us a taxi.
The breakfast is not worth having. We were issued with vouchers which entitled us to 1 item & a drink. Two pieces of toast with Vegemite & a coffee was it, & my husband was charged 60 cents extra for soy milk in his coffee!!- I think that’s cheap & rude.
On the positive side, the bed was comfortable & the room clean. The bathroom was large but there was no surface large enough to put a toiletry bag upon where in the past there would have been a little washstand or table. This place has lost its mojo which is a shame as it’s a great Sydney location.

The Hughenden is in an awesome location. Environment and rooms clean and comfortable. Bath is fantastic.

The shortened reception hours attributed to COVID is disappointing. Whilst we were busy and only there overnight I missed being able to say hello to staff as we came and left the hotel at various times. It seems that as much of the check in and check out procedure as possible has been automated. For me, staying in a Boutique Hotel is about personal service and attention, and this simply felt as though it had been minimised as much as possible.

Would I stay there again? Maybe. But then given the level of service and the room rate, I'd probably look for an Airbnb for about the same price in the area. The only expectation then is a clean property.

We really enjoyed this lovely old mansion accommodation which is situated in Queen Street across from Centennial Park and close to the SCG where we were seeing an AFL match.

We loved the easy walk to the ground and when we came back went to the local Woollahra Hotel for dinner. A fabulous hotel with a great menu and only a short walk from the Hughenden accommodation.

The room we had was the Manor Suite and it was spacious and comfortable for an overnight stay. Off street parking is handy and costs $33.

We liked the leafy street with a nice safe feel and the hotel has good security systems so night access is via a coded gate.

You also get a $10 voucher each to have a coffee and breakfast snack in the morning. The coffee was excellent along with friendly and efficient service.

If you enjoy a cosy, comfortable hotel with lovely history and keeping in the old charm style then you will enjoy this place.

Definitely recommend if you like a nice area close to the SCG for watching sport.
