Staying in many hotels for work, my needs are quite simple. Although my requirements are straightforward... Efficient and effective. The accommodation is appropriate and sufficient Dining offers a tasty alternative to walking the streets, however, after waiting 45 minutes for a starter when there are 6 people in a restaurant is extreme to say the least. Sadly, there was not...

It is the start what leads the overall experience ... and this was no good. Unfriendly and unprofessional front desk staff, with the exception of the check out lady on the 18th. Bed was good, so it was the shower. Cleanliness just in the limit of the acceptable, specially in common areas. Breakfast was just edible. All this said after...

In general, there are not many options for hotel stays in North Sydney, which is surprising considering the number of businesses and corporations in this area. I have stayed at this property on a few occasions. The lobby, bar and restaurant have been refurbished in a modern, updated style. The breakfast is quite good, but the coffee that is included...

Stayed here before which was not all that great, but decided to return. Checking in was normal. Open room door and the room was not far under 30 degrees (Mrs said it's cooler in the hallway). There was a portable A/C machine in the lounge room so I crank it up. We decided to go out for dinner and asked...

Comfortable clean and modern hotel, great room service menu, staff very attentive and friendly. Lifts were under construction for refurbishment but that is a minor thing, am sure only temporary and didn't delay movement much

It was nice to be upgraded and the bed was comfortable but I had no views; the room was rather tired looking - cracked tiles in the kitchen; air conditioning very noisy and didn't extend to the bedroom; no ceiling fan in the tiny bathroom. The food from the room service was awful - salad had bottled 1,000 island dressing...

We has an enjoyable stay on the premises. There was a noisy fan in the room even when the air con and bathroom light turned off. The dining room was the best we've seen and the breakfast that was served was delicious. Im not sure a coffee should be chargeable, other hotels do not do this.

Though advertised as a 4-star hotel, it is at best a motel and an expensive one at that! The interior is old and shabby. The website pictures of a 1-bedroom apartment is nothing like what it look like in real life. Very disappointing and I will neither return or recommend this place.
