We booked our 2 bedroom apartment through a special and as a result it was a fabulous bargain. Rooms are wonderful. Everything you need and much more. Kitchens are huge, too big in fact, who needs a FULL kitchen on holidays? We had a Pyrmont view room and it was great. No real need to book the city view and pay extra. Balcony was a good size, with space to take out chairs from room. If you are a gambler or going to a show at Lyric these are great rooms. If not , then feel you can get great rooms closer to restaurants and Darling Harbour for less money. Breakfast remained a mystery as no information given at check in and agree with previous reviews, room information , really told you nothing. 5 minute walk to Darling Harbour and endless cheap places to get great meals. Wonderful meals at Pyrmont Bridge Hotel, just around the corner. I had the best rump steak and mash I have ever had for just $8!!!!! It was delicious. Hubbie had fish and chips and salad and he said it was great. Eating in casino area was not as good as it used to be. We used to enjoy just sitting and eating and drinking and watching all that goes on. But nowhere to do that now. We wanted a nice cup of coffee later in the evening and no staff could tell us where we could get one. We wrongly directed 3 times, and eventually found coffee shop in walk through restaurant area down stairs, and it CLOSED at 10.30!!! This is too early.
You can get a ferry from wharf a couple of minutes walk away, and they will take you anywhere on the water, up the river and all over the harbour. If you are a senior, remember to use your $2.50 day pass for all trains , buses and ferries. We went everywhere, over to Manly, up to Parramatta, out to Bondi and all over the city. It was wonderful.
