You couldn't get a more convenient location with an easy walk to shops. Only motel I've used in a while which doesn't give you the option to re-use your towels. Bit stingy on facilities - i.e. having to share the one chair.

Hi Paul! Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your time here at The Rex Hotel as it is our goal to exceed your expectations.

Feel free to give us a call before your next visit so we can book you in at the rooftop bar and if there is anything else we can assist you with during your next visit please don’t hesitate to contact us!

The bed was rock hard, the aircon leaked and dripped all night , so made it impossible to sleep. We booked as it had a bar . But both bars were booked out for private functions, what about your guests US staying in your hotel, odiously not a priority! Have stayed here many times before, never an issue. But sorry won’t be back at all. Only delite was the staff , young lady on check in , she was so lovely and the security guard also extremely accomodating.

Position excellent, walking distance to cafes shops etc. Staff were very courteous and went out of their way to assist at all times and so friendly, always with a smile. Room was good, everything I needed - one small gripe - to turn on the lights one has to access the gadget inside the room so the door shuts and it is very dark, difficult to find where to insert the key card.

Do not book this hotel using the Wotif site. No refund or ability to postpone our booking when Covid prevented us from travelling. They just took our money!

Dear Anonymous, Unfortunately, you booked through a third party website. Booking through Expedia means that at the time of your booking you also paid for this in full via their website. Making any changes to these bookings has to be done by the guest directly through Expedia. We were offering a one time date change for those effected by the Sydney lockdown that had booked advance purchase/non-refundable bookings within the cancellation policy of 24 hours prior to arrival. Sincerely, Zoe
