This classic old world hotel is still a favourite of mine and the accommodation and location is fantastic. I have reviewed this hotel numerous times before, but I have to state, the breakfast really needs to improve. Service can be more personable and really, if you can't make a good coffee, bake a proper omelet and can't ensure there are...

Thought we'd like to try somewhere near Circular Quay and we're thrilled by our room and facilities. Easy to drive into and easy to walk to city centre or Circular Quay. Very quiet in spite of busy road.

Excellent hotel very close to Circular Quay and the cruise terminal. We caught the train from the airport to the Circular Quay train station and it was a 3min walk to the hotel. The rooms are very large and the bathrooms are well appointed. The only downside was not having free wifi but we were able to get 30min free...

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times but on this latest occasion we ended up in a room that had numerous mechanical problems eg toilet kept running, air-conditioner did not work. There were also loud external noises which hampered our ability to sleep. So sadly our experience did not meet previous stays.

The hotel doesn't look all that from the outside but on the inside it reminds me of old english aristrocracy. As you walk in there's a wonderful entrance hall and lounge area with lots of comfortable armchairs and settees. Having been travelling for 48 hours we were desperate to go straight to our room.

Booked the romance package and it was amazing! Being off peak season it was a reasonable rate. Now we can't wait to book it again! What was included was wonderful and we left feeling like we had had a holiday even though we only stayed 1 night. Wish we could stay there every couple of months!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
