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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Probably one of the best Hotel in Sydney. Best location (North Sydney) if you wanna get away from the busy Town Hall area but it’s convenient and very close to the most visited spots around Sydney. Service is very good and not to mention, the view is amazing! I’ll be back for sure!

Stayed here for 3 x nights and had the harbour view king room. I requested a high floor and was given a room on the top floor which was fabulous. We arrived by train from the airport, the stop is North Sydney and the fair was $20 each one way and there were two of us. When we were leaving we decided to get an Uber and that was only $43 but it was on a Sunday so maybe more at busier times. We walk everywhere so we crossed the bridge many times to get to circular quay and the centre this would take us about 45 mins. We visited darling harbour and took the ferry to Manley beach which was excellent. We had the buffet breakfast one morning and it was really good and plentiful. All in all a great stay and would highly recommend.

This is truly a disappointing hotel experience, and I am extremely let down. Having stayed in numerous hotels before, I have never felt so disappointed. I had booked a week's stay due to a conference, with daily departures at 8 a.m. and returns to the hotel at 10 p.m. The first two days seemed relatively normal, despite the noise from passing trains beneath the hotel, which I could tolerate. However, on the third day upon returning to the hotel, I found the bed unmade, the toilet uncleaned, and the shower mat missing. Additionally, the pillowcases were left on a chair. Despite my exhaustion, all I wanted was to shower and sleep. On the fourth day, the same situation repeated itself, except this time there was an extra charger in the room that wasn't mine. I was quite surprised and immediately called the hotel to report that someone had entered my room. They checked the surveillance footage and claimed that nobody had entered. When I asked about the charger's origin, they said they would investigate, but I never received any further updates. If you wish to avoid unexpected items like an extra charger mysteriously appearing in your hotel room, I advise you to think twice before choosing this establishment.

Right from the get-go, the service was absolutely outstanding. Not only the front desk made the whole check in process easy as a breeze, but there was a great surprise waiting for us in the room: A bottle of champagne, a box of chocolates and, best of all, a welcome card with our photo from the wedding ceremony that took place less than 24 hours prior! Such great customer service and attention to detail, especially when it's for such a significant occasion, make a world of difference and are second to none.
