    Our room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The rooms are quite small but we were aware of this before booking. Nice walking distance from restaurants and the downtown area. Great place to stay!

    A very clean and comfortable hotel. Loved the look of the establishment and the service by Claire and another staff. They were helpful and accommodating. They all helped make our stay very comfortable.

    A few steps away from the hustle and bustle of Potts Point and on the doorstep to Woolloomooloo and Circular Quay. Great location and a lovely terrace beautifully restored with attentive service from staff.
