We stayed here for a three day city break. Whilst the rooms seem dated, they are in kepping with the period of the hotel. Rooms are comfortable and the on site restaurant gives good value for money. The bar holds happy hour and is a comfortable relaxing place to settle for a while. Hotel location is very good and staff obliging.

Date of stay: March 2018

Terrific central location and so convenient to Central Train station. All staff from reception to the breakfast buffet staff helpful, friendly and courteous. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. Loved the art deco touches throughout the hotel and hope that the historic look never changes. Breakfast buffet substantial with a good variety of choices. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed three nights on this hotel just to figured it out that they serve the same breakfast every morning, medium taste. Wifi doesn’t working so well. The only pros is the location. Located just in the middle of “Chinatown” area which you can find many restaurants and shops.

My husband & I stayed over night this week and were pleasantly surprised, the staff from check in & out, bar staff, bar manager & bistro staff were all amazing and made our stay more special.Our room was spacious & clean. We can’t speak high enough of The Great Southern Hotel & can’t wait to return.

Conclusion:
Great location: Close to station, Chinatown, Darling harbor, approximately a 30 min walk to opera house.
-Breakfast very very disappointing.
-Bathroom with fungus
-Would we return: No, price/value far too high for offering

Basic room small with “antique” furniture fitting the hotel style, bit noisy (door between rooms). Aico seemed new and working well without noise. Paid WIFI …
Bathroom small no place putting toilet gear, noted some fungus on walls. For me room quality wasn’t in line with a 4* star hotel.

Breakfast buffer: below average, far below a 4 star hotel breakfast.
Fuzzy what to expect for what buffet voucher (green one), Buffet not tasteful, over boiled green eggs not too warm, scrambled eggs also not too fresh (standing far too long) no quick refilling of empty items (yoghurt fruit add-ons) similar experience for both timings (~8 hr and ~9 hr) we had breakfast. Filled in the questionnaire of breakfast quality …
Since breakfast was so disappointing we didn’t check the restaurant which uses same kitchen.
Price/value: below average
