We enjoyed our stay in clean but basic accommodation. No bells and whistles. Only thing missing is somewhere to hang clothes. A small rack might be useful. We went to the ICC for a show and it was a block away. Would recommend this for anyone visiting the Darling Harbour area.

Friendly staff, clean room and good meals. Shutters in room could be replaced by block out curtains to stop street light at night

Overall the room was fine and not a bad location, not far from darling harbour. The bathroom needed a much better clean. Great idea to supply lots of coffee, sugar and fresh milk, as well as bread for toast, however we only had one coffee mug in a queen room and no butter for toast.
