    I loved everything about this hotel, I was wonderfully surprised when I was upgraded. The staff were wonderful and very accomodating, especially the concierge, who rang and made dinner reservations, at 10pm. Wonderful, I will be recommending this hotel to my friends, and will definately be returning myself.

    We really enjoyed the staff that worked there. They were all very welcoming, nice & friendly. The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The view of the Harbour Bridge & Opera House was exquisite!

    We didn't like the fact that the drawer kept opening, and the desk chair was damaged.

    Superb

    The room and service was fantastic with polite and helpful staff

    I think it needs to clearly state on the internet regarding accessibility to the city for people wishing to access it without using transport. The steep hill for a person with a diability is restrictive.

    Superb

    The hotel room was very comfortable and the fabulous king size bed was pure heaven. The bathroom was very well appointed and luxurious. The location of the hotel was perfect overlooking the harbour and had easy access to downtown Sydney, Circular Quay and all the bars and restaurants around the Rocks. Had a wonderful stay here and would definitely come back.

    Although there were six lifts, it seemed to take forever to get one no matter what time of day or night. Not sure they were all in working order.

    The hotel is in a very good location, close to Sydney harbour bridge and opera house, also very close to ferries. And of course, shopping.

    Fabulous

    The bathroom was awesome! Such a big shower and the bath was lovely (seen as we dont have one in our home). It was a very nicely set up hotel and the way the room was decorated was lovely! For the price we paid we would stay there every weekend if we could!!!

    When we went into the room it smelt like cigarette smoke which I really do not like. And the mini bar listing is written incorrectly people could argue if they wanted to as it says 2* coca cola can $6 this wouold make any normal person think that it is $6 for the 2 cans. Other then these we loved our stay.

    Very good

    The rooms were generous in size. We were glad to see that our bathroom had a bath as well as a separate shower. Staff were very helpful and courteous.

    The room we were allocated was next to a double apartment (507/508) and we had an adjoining door that was illfitting. The considerable noise of our neighbours especially at 4am spoilt our first night.If rooms such as ours is to be allocated separately, then the doors and soundproofing need attention or blocking off altogether.
