Small, well run boutique hotel that has great staff. The coffee and breakfast is lovely making it good value for the room rate. Close to Paddington and Centennial Park. If you have trouble with steep stairs make sure you get the ground floor.
We stayed at the Hugenden for 2 days in November. Our welcome at reception was distracted but there was a computer glitch. The room was small but nice, very clean and and very comfortable. However despite asking for a QUIET room we got a room facing Queen Street. It was noisy.The alarm clock was rubbish trucks at the crack if dawn.

It was the first holiday with our puppy and we all had a great time. The staff were excellent and our puppy felt right at home, so did we. It was great being able to have our puppy with us in the restaurant.
