              All the staff were very professional and helpful. I had overpacked so needed to send home some items. They found a suitable box for me straight away (within 15 mintues) and brought it up to my room. They were also efficient in organising transport.

              the rooms were lovely...very comfortable, the hotel was very inviting from the moment we stepped inside, great location

              we were not impressed with the parking, the price was double to what we were told, no one mentioned anything about parking when we checked in or out, the service in the dining room for breakfast was very poor, apart from that it was excellent

              The foyers on each level, didn't really keep up with the standard of the rooms. But other than that, it was perfect

              Close to Circular Quay making up for all the things i needed in this Hotel. Handy to trains,ferries,Sydney Harbour Bridge climb easy to travel to Manly & Taronga Park Zoo. Loved it..........

              Yes...hearing guests in adjacent rooms into the early hours of the morning & during the night was the only downfall of this Hotel.
