This is my favourite hotel in Sydney. The staff is so friendly and helpful…especially the lady in charge of breakfast. I also love the view from our room and the fact that you can take walks on the waterfront right outside our hotel.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I prefer windows that open and a non-carpeted floor. However, the room was very clean and comfy with a great view; very comfy bed. The pool is good; I couldn't find towels but not matter. The pub was open for room service and the food was excellent; breakfast is also offered. Staff were very friendly which is key when travelling alone on business. All round a good experience.
