Stayed here before, did the job so booked to stay again over New Year. Worst decision I made.

My partner had taken an engagement ring to propose on NYE, he didn’t know there was no safe before we arrived (probably unusual when you think about it but hadn’t need to use it last time as had no valuables) but stuffed the ring box in a rolled up t shirt, inside a coat, inside a bag, inside a closed case. It looked like it was packed not like something was hidden ( Remember it was a secret at this stage)

Fast forward to NYE and my partner goes to retrieve the ring for the proposal to find the ring box empty.

Reported to hotel and police and returned to UK and the email trail with hotel stopped as they accept no responsibility for loss / theft ( probably the norm) but as it totally ruined NYE and the onward travel I expected them to do more than merely apologise. Never even offered to refund the cost of the stay.

Been to Australia 5 times and visited much poorer countries and never experienced anything like this.

You don’t expect people to go through your baggage. Nor do you expect to have to carry valuable belongings 24/7 that people ‘might take a fancy to’
A hotel room is a home away from home.

Very disappointing.

We are extremely disappointed to read your comments relating to your recent stay at our property.

At The Bayswater Sydney, we treat the security and privacy of our guests with the utmost care.

When you reported the ring missing from the room, we were shocked and very concerned. All of our team have cooperated with the Police in their investigation. The case is now closed and the Police have stated there is no evidence to suggest any staff members were involved.

As mentioned in previous conversations regarding this sensitive and serious matter, we maintain our offer to make a statement for your insurance company. We trust you still have our direct contact details.

We had two separate stays here recently and on both occasions got room upgrades because we booked direct. Upgrades are understandably subject to availability but on both occasions they were offered with no prompting. Rooms are well equipped, very clean and well furnished. Basic rooms are small but bigger ones are available. Good beds. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. The area is buzzy and very "inner city" but we loved it. No bar or food operation but plenty of options nearby and a good coffee/breakfast kiosk just outside the hotel front door. We will use this hotel again I am sure.

Room tip: Front rooms, small suites

The room was clean. I like that you could open the windows. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lovely lounge to have a meal brought in. Only downfall was the tiny bathroom. Location was great in proximity to multiple venues and travel options. Definitely recommended.

I stayed at the Bayswater because it is very well located and was very cheap for that location. It has a bus stop outside the door, a lovely coffee shop at the bottom, 3 minute walk from Kings Cross station. The bed was comfortable, the room was a reasonable size. The only thing I found odd about it was that the positioning of the toilet and washbasin doesn’t leave a lot of space around the toilet. Otherwise, the place is fine.

Stayed for a family wedding. Great location in the heart of Kings Cross. Plenty of eating places out the front door, supermarket down the road as is Kings Cross station. Caught the Big bus tour from Kings Cross and loved it. Really close to the CBD with a taxi stand outside the door as well as a bus stop, transport isn’t an issue. Will definitely return next time in Sydney
