Thank you for the rating we hope everything was as expected

3 out of 5
The staff was wonderful. Upon check-in we were given a lot of specific tour information (in addition to the vast amount of tour pamphlets in the lobby). The hotel and room were clean, but our room was very tiny and dated. Bathroom in particular was old and in need of maintenance, however it was fully functional. The sink and shower were both very small, and the sink was chipped in several places (I though it was dirt at first, but then realized the surface was chipped) - however, again, properly functioning. There was a kitchenette complete with hot plate and tea kettle, which was great. But with three of us sharing a room, it was tight fitting all of our luggage. The view was wonderful and we could see the bridge and opera house from our window. There was a lovely outdoor sitting area, but there are no lights at all for evening use. There is a small pool, and though a fitness center was advertised, it is actually a free pass to a gym down the road. Overall, a good stay, but it would have been tough if we had stayed longer than a few days.

Everything about the hotel was perfect. From the location, the room, the cleanliness and by far the most accommodating and friendly staff. In a city full of friendly kind people this place stood out. I would bring my family here again every time we visit Sydney. I miss it already.....
