Great location & well priced - tucked away at a quiet end of Castlereagh St - despite being central to everything. Beautiful conversion of an old Heritage building (bank?). Staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Room/bathroom was a little smaller than used to, but spotless missing none of the expected hotel room trappings.Bed was great - slept like a log! I was only there overnight but could have stayed longer. Recommend for anyone wishing for some old world charm & peace/relaxation in the Syd CBD.

The hotel is a very lovely architecture building with a classic boutique feel. The bar and restaurant area was well stocked with generous happy hour timings but not open on Sundays. The double room was a little smaller than expected but was cosy enough for a single stay.
