It was conveniently located and provided a good sized family room for the three of us travelling together and was well priced. Thank you
Location to many walk able sites in Sydney was better than most hotels of similar quality.
The staff was very helpful. Because we were staying a number of days they gave us a room upgrade, which we enjoyed. This hotel is close to a grocery store and many restaurants.
