We stayed here for a weekend break to see Turandot (Handa Opera) on the harbour. Primarily, we chose the hotel for its' proximity to that location. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel for our weekend. Close to some of Sydney's finest sights, it was an outstanding location for any short break in the city.
Set in a beautifully restored period building, on the longest wooden wharf in the world, the hotel's quirky decor is unique and visually refreshingly. The added value inclusion of (outstanding) continental breakfast, happy hour, free mini bar, room snacks, wifi, etc, make the room rate deal attractive and pretty good value. Our (twin) room was spacious and extremely well appointed with comfortable beds and pillows and excellent AC. A minor hiccup with the in-room iPad was remedied promptly and with good humour. Room service arrived with indecent haste! Hotel reception, bar, breakfast and concierge staff were - without exception - friendly, charming and 'can do'.
One very minor negative comment would be that the grouting in our shower (407) was in need of more robust cleaning attention - as were the dusty skirtings on the bathroom party wall. I gather bathrooms are being refurbed - but, until they are....
Overall - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are already planning a return visit, hopefully once the pool upgrade is completed.More
