The property is very well positioned for accessing by foot Circular Quay, many coffee shops and galleries etc. in The Rocks area and the Harbour Bridge. Unfortunately my shared bathroom and toilet were a floor above my bedroom which made it very awkward to access, via a narrow set of stairs, during the night and this was not mentioned in the description of the room I chose. You could also hear other guests moving around downstairs and in the room above and if they had been the very noisy type, it would have been a problem. The property feels like it is in need of some TLC.

Nothing to like about this accommodation. Photo’s that are shown.i don’t believe are in this accommodation. We were allocated the loft. It was filthy the carpet on the floor was putrid and was rotted at the access to the balcony. No window only door to balcony which had broken furniture and timber venetians and dirt on it. No soap in bathroom. The ceiling fan didn’t work only a small fan that had been attached to the wall. The room stunk of mould and mildew. The bed was on its last legs sinking in the middle. Sorry this accommodation has left a very bad taste in our mouth. Feel completely ripped off.

We arrived late and the checkmin process was excellent. The room was clean and comfortable. We chose to sleep in and missed the 9am cut off for breakfast so we didnt take advantage of that inclusion. However we dont usually eat breakfast anyway and got a coffee down the road later. Took advantage of the express check out service. Overall very happy

The toilet has a constant leak which is a terrible waste of water. Other than that the property is simply gorgeous, in a spectacular location and the staff are lovely.

Thank you for your kind words and we hope to welcome you back in the future. We have fixed the toilet now as over the new years shut down it was virtually impossible to get trades people to come to the Rocks. We hate the waste of water as well. Warmest regards TheSHBBteamx
