I stayed corner room with an amazing harbor view. The room was well-sized and well-cleaned. I really enjoyed the lovely view. Their gym was spacious and have various machines to work out. The swimming pool also has the same amazing harbor view. When I went there, it was empty so I could enjoy and relax well. The champagne bar also provides a nice view and a good atmosphere. All the staffs were friendly. Highly recommended!

Fantastic views and beautiful property so convenient to ICC. Breakfast is excellent but for one thing - powdered eggs for scrambled eggs - not cool in a hotel of this calibre. Otherwise magnificent stay and is my hotel of choice for this part of Sydney

Disliked: Staff & service
When we arrived around 11pm no one in front door or anywhere , only two staff checking in and took us 20min to check in, including 15 min waiting. Staff could not record information clearly have to repeat twice. The two beds room was tiny. First day had to call for room service. Found a take away box under bed. Corners around bed were dusty. Reading lights above bed directly to eyes and couldn’t turn off unless turn all lights off. Can hear traffic during night . Air condition was noisy especially turn to low mode. Wardrobe door couldn’t shut properly. Didn’t feel like a 5 star hotel at all.
