    The location was.

    The noise levels were bad. Could not sleep and the noise from the bar below was extreme. The bed was also hard to the point of uncomfortable.Hotel needs upgrading, is looking worn. The bathroom ceiling had mould.

    Fabulous

    Great location. Quieter than you would think even in the rooms facing the street. Quirky. Some rooms very small and no bathroom but ours was very good and had a great bathroom with a bath (recently renovated) Staff generally friendly and helpful. I would stay there again.

    There was a door between our room(18) and the one next door and minimal sound proofing. Two of the nights we had rather loud Americans next door who argued and we could hear every word and then the next night had a family with 3 small children who were noisy. However the positives outway the negatives. Would love a decent coffee at breakfast . There is a machine but not used at breakfast time. Better Internet access with access to a printer would be good.

    Exceptional

    Love the setup of the whole venue. It was comfortable and quirky and the same time. Close to everything in the Rocks and even the city centre, train connections feries etc.

    It what would be great if the breakfast offered some warm selections even if it was at extra cost to the guest especially during the cooler months

    Exceptional

    I lke the scale of the hotel - I also like the decor, the cleanliness and the quiteness inside the hotel. I am particularly imprewssed by the lift!

    The only slight deterrant is the noise from outised if you have the window open at nibht. A minor issue.

    Guest rating

    Hotel Location on the Rocks at Sydney.

    Room extremely cramped, no space for luggage or to move. Very noisy all through the night as businesses at the back of the hotel were cleaned or re-stocked. Impossible to sleep. Things may be better in other rooms, but 29 is a big no no!

    Exceptional

    I love the comfort of the old world charm. The location is unbeatable right in the heart of the rocks.

    I needed a pen and paper which was not in the room.
