Arrived and the reception was closed, door locked. There was no sign to help with access. Clmibed up stairs of neighbouring building in case that was the entrance. Not a proper hotel. Ended banging on the door the bar on Goulburn St.

Great for a night out!

My room was upgraded to a suite (sweet!) as I only booked a single but was advised that it could be a little bit noisy being a Friday night - slept right through it once I got back and enjoyed the comfy bigger bed and bigger room. Great base for a night out! Thanks again for the upgrade, thoroughly enjoyed it!

A surprisingly large room with all the facilities.

Pros: Everything except the above mentioned noisiness.
Cons: As above.
The room had everything to enjoy a stay with comfortable accommodation and plenty of the little touches that make the difference. Unfortunately it was unbearably noisy from the music below and sleep is out of the question. I would never stay here again under the current conditions however if it was,nt for the extremely excessive noise it would be a great place to stay and real value otherwise. For anyone who wants to get to sleep after 2.30 then this is for you. And P.S. I do love music!

Pros: Love being in a 1912 building with lots of charm. Room was clean and comfortable.
Cons: Maybe do something about the noisy water pipes if possible.
Location: Great central, lively location close to many places to eat and drink. If you do not like noisy, lively urban areas, this may not be for you.
An early 20th century building with a lot of charm, very lively (read noisy) bar on the ground floor which could not be heard from our room. The room had access to an unexpected outdoor area. Being an old building the water pipes are very talkative and can be a bit of nuisance if you are a light sleeper. All in all a good place to stay which makes a nice break from clinical new hotels with a personality by-pass.

Great location for Sydney CBD and tourist sites.

Pros: Its location and car par park nearby.
Cons: get the idea that it is a pub first, a hotel second.
Location: the main attraction for us was the closeness of the city. Plenty of shops and restaurants around the hotel.
The hotel is a pub and first impressions need to be ignored.Hotel section on 3rd floor and the sound proofing is superb. Does not appear to be access to lift so narrow stairs a bit of a hassle with luggage. Car parking available nearby, city within walking distance.

Great hotel, bring ear plugs

Lovely hotel and excellent staff. The hotel is centrally located and easy to get to whatever you need in the CBD, but the only downside was the noise. The music from downstairs was pumping. Even with ear plugs out was very loud. All in all the hotel was great and we would book again
