The accommodation was everything that was described. The staff were very hospitable on arrival and during the stay. A great bar atmosphere with a good range of beer and food. I would definitely stay here again.

Hi Peter, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Our rates are reasonable given our central location and proximity to Sydney's leading restaurants and nightlife. We do hope that you give us another chance in the future. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.

Annoyingly my blind didn’t fit the window so had no privacy. Bathrooms not checked, ie no toilet paper. The bath/shower had been painted but large flakes of paint had peeled from the bath and blocked the plug hole, that was when I arrived and still there the next day. The water took forever to get hot, I was convinced twice there was no hot water. My key was a poor fit and awkward, the manager said he’d bring a replacement but forgot. I got it when I went down for a remote for the TV. All in all it was pretty poor.

Whilst the venue had a midnight close down and the loud music stopped, it came on again at 4.30am!! Do we really need to be woken by music at that hour of the morning and given tha ttis venue is in a residential area, I am suprised that this has not been noted before. I would seriously like to be reimburdsed for the stay.

Hi Patricia, As you mentioned, our bar closes as midnight Monday - Saturday and at 10pm on Sundays. We then do not reopen until midday so we are unsure of where this music was coming from at 4:30am. However, we do apologise that you were woken at this time and we will further investigate this. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we hope that you give us another chance in the future.

Staff were lovely. Room was everything I needed. I didn't use it, but there was a guest kitchen with a few things. The bathrooms were fine. By the time I had my shower there was little hot water left but it wasn't icy cold. Loved the art deco building. Great location and service for the price.
