Editorial review:

This 83 room boutique hotel is an elegantly restored, heritage-listed property located in the heart of Sydney's commercial, retail and entertainment centers. It features a sandstone frontage and stunning heritage architecture which is accentuated by the elegant and luxurious furnishings. Holding a small but significant piece of Sydney's history, the building was the first reinforced concrete construction seen in Sydney and became the yardstick for all of the other buildings built in the 1920s. If you need money there is an ATM on the premises. Don’t miss the Cello's a la carte Restaurant, ReaghBar, and Castlereagh Lounge. The sleeping rooms have a luxurious and ultra comfortable décor.

Overview

Castlereagh is a 4-star property in Central Business district of Sydney close to boutiques, markets and a zoo. An example of original architecture, this hotel opened in 1927 and was fully restored in 2004.

Located in the center of Sydney, the hotel is steps away from Sydney Opera House, Belvoir Street Theatre and Sydney Theatre Company. Just 10 minutes from the center of Sydney.

Castlereagh is set close to a tower and an opera house as well as The Sydney Mint, The Cenotaph and Metro Theatre.

This hotel is located within a 10-minute walk of the Capitol Square MLR tram stop. Due to the hotel's central location, it will only take you a 10-minute drive to get to Kingsford Smith airport.

          Individual guest reviews

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Convenient to shops, theatres and restaurants.

            Nothing that comes to mind.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Central to all the sites and easy to get too.

            Too formal did not know that it was part of the masonic. Room very small. No window view at all but that was to be expected. A little to formal for my liking

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Stayed 2 nights (16-16 May) and was impressed with the hotel's decor. The room was not large but well furnished for our stay. The bed was a bit hard yet we slept well. A very good location. Will recommend.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Location fantastic. Friendly and helpful staff. Liked that you needed a room key to access the lift to your floor.(even if it was reeeeeealy slow). Good sized rooms and nice reception waiting area.

            The room was the most dreary and depressing I have ever stayed in. No natural light at all and poor room lighting. Bathroom so small you needed to dry yourself in the large shower. Beds comfy but would be nice to have at least king singles and a bit more length - thank goodness I am not 6 foot.

          • Single
            8.2

            The decor was lovely but the bathroom could do with a refurbishment

            The bathroom

          • Couple
            7.4

            Conveniently placed, very clean, friendly staff.

            Room service should be open for longer.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Beautiful old style hotel, right in city centre. Very central to everything. Very nice continental breakfast at extra cost of $15, very reasonable with very friendly staff. All hotel staff very nice. Always stay at this hotel when in Sydney and always will

            No iron & ironing board in room

          • Single
            6.2

            Helpful staff

            poor lighting in the room and lack of TV chanels

          • Older travelers
            4.6

            Good location.

            Our room was dark,with one tiny window which you could not see out of as it had opaque glass.So you had no idea what the weather was like in the morning. A cockroach was on the wall. The bathroom was tiny and had a sliding door that didn't close properly.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Very pleasant and polite staff. Nice bar facilities at good prices. Good location.

            We thought the room was a bit on the small size for the price, but it is in a very central position.

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            Location is the main advantage of this hotel. The room was clean and quiet and the air conditioning efficient.

            The lighting was very poor and the bathroom completely basic, looked like a 2 stars hotel room.

          • Single
            5.4

            the location was the best for me.

            the bar closed too early, 8:30pm! the early morning wake up call by the maintenance that was happening and the building site next door.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Hotel is in centre of city and beautiful room.

            Door of bathroom isn't tight and air condition looks like no effect.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            The location was fantastic as my Son who works in the office located on the corner of Elizabeth and Park Street made easy access when visiting me.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            It is a beautiful classic hotel in the centre CBD if you want heritage class and very central to everything in Sydney. The foyer & reception area is all marble and the staff are so friendly. The rooms are heritage with old world charm, so different from modern decor and you have your own airconditioning control. The continental breakfast offered is an extra charge and so tasty. This was our 3rd time staying there and would stay there always

            would like iron and ironing board in each room
