    Location

    After a query with the bill the young lady who talked to us was excellent. She was informative, friendly and extremely competent. She was able to make us feel validated rather than frustrated and we left happy rather than annoyed.

    The airconditioning was very loud and in fact kept me awake most of the night as the room was so hot.

    Very good

    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.

    The location suited my needs. I was effected with food poisoning, contracted enroute, & was looked after well by the hotel staff.

    Good

    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.

    Very good

    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.
