Having a dear friend coming from Melbourne I booked a couple of rooms so that I could stay and play as well. A reunion of old nursing buddies up to celebrate my birthday (a biggie!)
Although we were always greeted politely it took ages to...More
Sydney was the penultimate stop on my 19 day first time Australian tour. I picked this tour because it included most of destinations (icons) that I have seen on television. The tour included Perth, Alice Springs, Ayers Rock, Cairns (Barrier Reef), Sydney and Melbourne. On...More

We had a lovely overnight stay in the hotel which included a room upgrade and breakfast. Went onto the roof top to watch the Vivid light show. An excellent trip all round. The location is central to most of the tourist attractions of the city...More
Got to love reception staff. “And you’ve been upgraded to one of our king rooms”. Not sure what that is normally but this is a smaller room than I’ve had at this hotel before. And the mini bar is completely empty, not one thing in...More
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.

There are local opportunities that are easily booked once you get there. For example, Captain Cook run Sydney Harbour tours and they can be booked at the wharf at Circular Quay which is a 5 to 10 minute stroll from the hotel. There is a lot to see and do within walking distance. I am sure the hotel can also recommended and book tours as well.
Yes there is a washer and drier for guest. I believe it is on the fourth floor. They are relatively new machines and there are 2 of each when we stayed there. This is one of the reasons we stayed at this hotel. Also a room... More
Yes there is a washer and drier for guest. I believe it is on the fourth floor. They are relatively new machines and there are 2 of each when we stayed there. This is one of the reasons we stayed at this hotel. Also a room in this hotel was a prize on the Price is Right show last year.
