We booked a 'Standard' room because the 'Cosy' ones sounded rather small. But the room we were given was tiny anyway, hardly any space around the double bed. If you'd opened your suitcase on the stand, for example, it would have blocked your way to the bathroom. There was an ironing board on small legs in the cupboard - but...

My husband and I spent a week at The Hughenden with another couple from NZ and our sons while watching the Ashes Cricket Test. The staff were helpful, charming and professional. Unfortunately our Terrace Room overlooked the main intersection which meant going outside with our friends for a drink in the evening was impossible due to the loud traffic noise....

This hotel wasn't for us. If you like shabby chic, quirky bohemian style then I can see the attraction of the main part of the hotel. But the bedroom accommodation is dire. We had been told that the 'cosy' bedrooms were very small so we opted for a Terrace apartment (T7). This was in a separate building across the road....

Just returned after a night at the Hughenden. This was a special night away to celebrate my husbands birthday. We chose Room 23 , one of the larger rooms that had been renovated. We have had lunch and dinner there once before, and had sent my son and his partner there for a package once before, so we were really...

This was a huge disappointment, my wife and I had been really looking forward to staying in this hotel for some time. We had booked a standard room, as we were out sightseeing most of the day. The first room they gave us was tiny, the shower room was just a small cupboard. In fairness they gave us a larger...

A great place to stay in Sydney is the Hughenden Hotel (http://thehughenden.com.au). It was a family residence built in the 1870’s which renowned children’s author Susanne Gervay and family has turned into a boutique hotel. It feels more like a home away from home than a hotel. Each room is different and breakfast is included. The hotel is filled with...

My twin sister and I stayed here as it was pretty close to the Allianz stadium as we were seeing Taylor Swift. I love buildings that are rich in history and so this seemed like the perfect place. The outside of the hotel is very beautiful and I like how the restaurant has an outdoor seating option. The inside did...

Super little gem very much a home away from home and so close to everything the Eastern Suburbs has to offer. If you are sick of the same old sterile kind of hotels check this place out and you will love it. Price included breakfast, free newspapers, lovely outdoor setting to enjoy breakfast. It's different, but that's exactly why you...

I loved this hotel experience. The hotel is quirky, full of hidden gems, rich with history and a perfect place for writers! A literary boutique experience. The ambiance transported you back to long ago. The artwork and decor I found most inspiring. Along with that, there is a French restaurant attached, which was booked out on a Tuesday night! The...
