    A nightclub (Bar 100) on the other side of the street was "sharing" it's music so loudly that we could feel the reverberations in the headboard of our bed!! We rang reception to say that we couldn't get to sleep and asking when the club would be closing - hoping that we might be offered another room in a quieter part of the hotel. No room was offered, instead we were informed that the club shuts at 3 am. I donned ear plugs and was able to get to sleep, my partner can not wear ear plugs and was kept awake until 3am. Not a great experience given that we had to be up at 6 am to begin a hectic 12-hour day's work at the Aroma Festival. We would recommend anyone wanting a good night's sleep to stay away from this hotel towards the end of the week.

    The hotel is ideally located as a springboard for all activities in and around Sydney. I was able to have 2 of my grandchildren to stay with me for 2 nights (7&9 years old) and they were completely at home and comfortable. The food from the restaurant was excellent

    The area in the foyer used for evening meals. The steps down into the area are rather treacherous. I was unlucky enough to fall and badly hurt a knee but the duty manager who was very professional did everything he could to assist me. Since coming home I have sought medical advice just to affirm that no permanent damage has occurred and all is well. I am a trained nurse so was able to initiate my own immediate treatment which was a help. I'm sure some simple remediation of the area could help prevent any future incidents but I understand you may already have some tentative plans to effect this. I would not hesitate to use the faciilty again in the future.

    Good basic simple & comfortable hotel without frills in a great area of sydney. Room was clean, good condition and a good size. Has a great view of the opera house and harbour bridge from the roof terrace and pool & spa area.

    We were on the second floor overlooking a bar/pub at the rocks - it got pretty noisy when we were trying to sleep - wouldn't recommend staying on a lower floor with this view. Breakfast was a bit of a let down, the hot breakfast was a bit rubbery tasting, however the continental breakfast was great - lots of variety.

    Location in The Rocks was excellent, just two minutes from Circular Quay and a great spot from which to explore Sydney.

    The room at third floor level was noisy. Not much the hotel could do about it but someone putting tables and chairs out at 5.00AM in the morning in the square at the back of the hotel was "unhelpful"

    The situation of the hotel is excellent and the swimming pool as well.

    The hotel is old and hasn 't been renovated for a long time. The spa and the swimming pool are not warm enough. The spa is definitely not working properly.

    Location Good large bed. Good cocktails downstairs

    No hot water on first day - very very poor. Empty fridge - reeked of low-quality, budget hotel guest relations strategy. Needed more pillows. Huge amounts of noise from street into the early hours - to be expected at that location I suppose but better glazing etc. called for.

    Room service was prompt.

    Staff at checkin was dismissive. Room was not serviced during stay. Had to call reception for extra towels. Bathroom was very cramped. Close to nightclubs so noisy at night.

    The location of this hotel is lovely, and right on for everything. The reception desk staff were wonderfully helpfull with directions and nothing was too much trouble. The open top tour bus stops right across the street, which i enjoyed. Only a few mins walk from circullar quay and the site of historic landings also across the street. Good and varied restaurants within a few minutes walk. The room had a very clean and fresh feel to it.

    I found the rooftop pool an exiting prospect when booking, but was dissapointed when the hot tub did,nt work. Hotels seem to employ young workers for breakfast times. I felt overall a general smarten up would,nt go a miss. I like to see a chef in smart whites but not with outside trousers and shoes on, the "egg station " chef was scruffy to say the least, looked like he had just got out of bed.Its all about presentation i guess, especially at the price of the Hotel. Maybe afresh paint job !!!

    Great hotel, lovely and comfortable beds and cushions. Fabulous location. Great italian restaurant at the back of the hotel!

    We thought the staff were great! Upon arriving we were up-graded to a king suite which was a bonus. Finding a spot to park while we checked in was difficult but that's because of the location and it was a Friday night. Breakfast in the morning was lovely and the staff were friendly. All over it was a great weekend, located closed to everything! thankyou!

    We thought everything was great, except there wasn't a top sheet on the bed and house keeping didn't put any milk in our fridge on the second day.... but it was a lovely hotel and we had a great experience.
