Couldn't park to unload luggage as they had the driveway blocked by painters. Breakfast was expensive and very average. The room was not clean, especially around the windows, dead moths and bugs. Light in bathroom was very dim, couldn't see properly to shave. Breakfast very average. Not worth the money I paid. Spoke to the manager and said he would personally check the room. Was that supposed to make me feel good?

I liked the historic charm of the building with a touch of luxury to the decor and the inviting lobby where you could sit by the open fire to reflect on the days events with pre dinner drinks before dinner.

This is a well renovated historic hotel. Great facilities. Very convenient to galleries & other points of interest. We arrived just on the closing time for lunch, however, the staff made sure we were able to get a bite to eat before we completed our check-in. We don't usually dine in the same restaurant on consecutive nights, however, after the first night the menu just kept drawing us back for 3 nights. Would highly recommend the Hotel Kurrajong.

Hotel Kurrajong is a gracious hotel and we enjoyed our stay there. It did lack a few creature comforts though. The loo paper was not replenished and we ran out - not good. There were no instructions for the coffee pod machine so we could not have coffee in the room, and there were too few teas etc. and one of the beds lacked a quilt on a freezing night - all of which made a difference. The front desk staff were very obliging and helpful but we should not have had to chase these things up.

The executive suite was lovely but the water in the bathroom was cold; no biscuits in the room; tiny cups to drink tea; minimal selection of snacks to purchase; corridor outside was dirty; staff seemingly unable to help out. I wouldn’t go back.

Dear Ms. Janet, I would like to first thank you for taking the time to provide such a detailed account of your recent event held at the Hotel Kurrajong. It is only through feedback such as yours that we are able to maintain and, where necessary, improve upon service levels for our valued guests. It is disheartening to read your comments concerning the overall service provided as it is truly not a reflection of our Kurrajong standards. There were various oversights which occurred due to human error in both the preparation and execution on your stay. These oversights resulted in the various issues you encountered being no hot water in the bathroom, uninformed staff who are not much of a help, limited snacks and the corridor not being clean up to the standard. The aforementioned issues should not of accrued and I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you encountered due to them. I have shared your feedback to our management team who have taken action to ensure the issues you encountered do not reoccur. Your feedback will also serve as opportunity to reinforce the importance of customer service and guest satisfaction to the greater team. We pride ourselves in delivering great experiences to everyone who dines with us, be it for a casual drink or a special event occasion such as yours. I hope that you will return in the future to enjoy a true Kurrajong experience. Kind Regards, Jay Bhandari
