Great location at the Rocks. Short walk to Sydney Theatre Company and circular Quay. Good breakfast. Overall my room was very good. Bed and pillows comfortable. I had a view of the cruise ships and opera house. Good electronic pass security for main front door. Bathroom fine and clean. My main light which was big and round, so had a large surface area, was quite dusty, and the picture rails were very dusty. Not a problem unless you're allergic to dust mites which i am. Also tea and coffee supplies had not been replenished and the cleaner took my face washers after one night and didn't replace them. Time the curtains were replaced too. All small things and still worth staying here

Close to Circular Quay.

Pros: It was in a very handy location - close to sightseeing and public transport.
Cons: Toilet and bathroom facilities in each room.
Location: As above
Location was excellent however there were no toilets, shower or hand basin in the room. These facilities were shared.

Hi there, Thank you for your review. If the bathroom facilities are shared, it is mentioned in the description online and is taken into consideration in the reduced price. Alternatively we do have Ensuites and private facilities but they are slightly more. Please feel free to contact us if you need assistance with room selection in the future. Warmest regards
