              Lobby very old and budget, the hotel is dated.

            • Fabulous location in The Rocks, the city bus tour is great to get your bearings and pillows best of any hotel we have stayed in. Room are adequate, comfortable, pleasant and the pool on the roof top is heated to 27 degrees and the jacuzzi 37 degrees centigrade. Staff friendly and helpful and arranged late checkout on our last day.

              Bathroom area not as big as appeared in internet presentation, for the price, this was not a good value.

            • The location is very good and a day on the ferries is great. The situation of the hotel is excellent and the swimming pool as well, just 5 minutes walk from Circular Quay. The staff are also nice, the room had a very clean and fresh feel to.

              The area in the foyer used for evening meals, holiday Inn Old Sydney and bathroom is small.

            • The view is worth, stay for free and late check out at 2pm, spacious room and a roof top pool. Restaurants serve great food and coffee.

              The location could not be more convenient, easy walk to the ferry at the quay and the hotel is old.
