I stayed there for one night and found it to be a nice hotel, clean and great staff. Could do with a spruce in the near future as it looks and smells a little tired. Overall very comfortable. Dinner meals aren't anything to write home about but OK if you don't feel like venturing out.

We stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights, the room is very clean and within acceptable price. The place is cozy, the breakfast included was great , the places we visited is within short distance from the hotel. The only problem I encountered was that there's only few choices for the night room service menu. Otherwise,it's a great hotel...

Our harbour view room had a great view and parking was fine. Sad to see you could not get a coffee until 5:30 and was told there was no kids menu available and there would be be no diversions from pre made pizzas. The beds were comfortable but the room was very tired. The food and beverage and room quality...

Very spacious two bedroom apartment for families. Within walking distance to trains. Nice Cafes in local area. If staying more than 1 night you can opt out of housekeeping and make your own bed, as a reward you get $10 food/beverage voucher. Friendly efficient staff. Affordable rates. Offer free wifi which is a definite positive! Would not bother with Buffett...

Well to say that you would feel pampered, cared for or relaxed after your check in is a very big stretch. First off.. reception staff could benefit from a hard sell moment of which was not explained clearly being sold previously as travelling is but a draining event for most. The weary traveller must be moments away from a hot...

This was my first time here but not the last. It's in a lovely garden setting inside the North Sydney high rise wind tunnel and the room was apartment style with kitchen and lounge.

If you have to worry about parking and wanting to visit the Luna Park and the Taronga Zoo, this hotel would be a very good choice. Moreover, shops are only a few minutes away. The apartment we stayed in was spacious, clean and tidy. The city view was nice too. All amenities were functional. The additional portable air-con unit cast...

Hotel staff were accommodating however the room we stayed in is very dated, particularly the bathroom. Air con is quite noisy and the noise from connecting rooms is heard easily. I would only recommend for short visits ie. 1 nighters.
