“Best in RUDENESS and SARCASM” I hate to argue, but she made us feel unwelcomed and belittled. Hotel and food itself are nice, just a let down in terms of guest service. She acts nice but you’ll know that you were being ridiculed and treated like a dum dum.

This was a real find. The staff are so nice and helpful. The room really nice and the food is amazing. All at a very reasonable price and walking distance to Darling Harbour. Parking was a little tricky, but next time we will get the train into Sydney and this will be the best place to stay. The set up for breakfast was unreal, and all so clean and new for such a beautiful old building in the heart of Sydney. Love this place.

Drinks and dinner last Friday night. Corner pub decor, been there forever. Great staff, in particular David, who apparently only works Friday nights. Very helpful , nothing too much trouble. Has a great "Hot Rock" eye fillet steak, you cook it yourself on a blazingly hot rock (stone slab) that seems to keep hot forever. Cooking it yourself you control exactly how you want it cooked slice by slice as it comes out just seared all over. And a side of delicious peppercorn sauce. Fries and side salad, just OK. Worth a visit.

I ate here as in the area and was surprised at the quality of the restaurant food. The special was the 200g fillet steak on a hot stone for $15. This was a quality piece of meat and you'd pay much more for it in a non pub environment. I loved it and will definitely go back just for this item. There was a great menu but this was not able to be passed up. $4 more and I had prawns to cook with the steak

First impression, the staff were lovely, the room was around the back, entrance from the lane and it was sufficient for our stay... we didn't have butter for our toast nor any biccies that the front entrance rooms had. The bed was comical as it rolled easily on the wooden floor! Though old, the room & bathroom were clean. We didn't get towels changed having left one on the floor for a bathmat, but the delightful barman was only too happy to bring us up some when we asked. I used the small shampoo & conditioner on my long hair first day but they were not refreshed. The web said free wifi but we had no instruction given or in our room regarding it. Our room had an adjoining door (locked) and there was nothing private in conversation etc from the people in the adjoining room, ALL was heard, till after midnight! That said, great proximity for our 3 day stay and staff were wonderful.

We wanted to stop overnight in Sydney to catch up with family. When we spoke on the phone I explained how we would need to drop off our luggage earlier than normal and how we needed secure storage for it. I was assured that wouldn’t be any problem and our booking was confirmed. On arrival however their idea of secure storage Wes on the floor in the front bar near the door in an extremely vulnerable location. So we trundled around with our luggage until we could gain access to our room. On entry to our room it was obviously newly renovated but with some issues such as mould and water leaks, light fixtures missing and poor quality fitted drawer handle to name a few of the issues. Maybe they have just done the renovations but the whole experience was one of over promising and under delivery.

Our room was neat & tidy. Location is great, not too far from anything & light rail is just across the road. They give you a good amount of spreads, butter, milk, juice & ceral in the rooms aswell. For the price, its great! We’ll definitely stay again

The location is wonderful and our room was always clean. The cleaning girl was very friendly. These are the only two positives we could find, location is pretty important in Sydney though! The walls are paper thin, tv is for show, the door was often not locked. If you are looking at this a few months from now beware, the bathroom had no fan in our room and will likely be beginning to grow mold! We had a few other things that went awry that made the stay more miserable but that was circumstantial and will likely not occur should you choose to stay here.
