Very Good Five Star HotelPosted Jun 10, 2015
Pros: The room, the view and the service. Location.
Location: Lots of good restaurants and good walking in the Botanical Gardens.
This hotel is a proper 5 Star. Some 5 star hotels are 4 star trying to be 5 star but The Blue is definitely the real thing. Great room with large bathroom with excellent shower and bath. Service was excellent in every respect. Lots of restaurants nearby and you can walk through the Botanical Gardens to the Opera House. Delightful. Taxis always available at the front of the hotel. If you are looking for a quality hotel just outside the hustle and bustle of the city centre this is a great place to be.

Very central without being right in the city.Posted Jun 8, 2015
The staff were extremely helpful. The rooms are a good size and the beds were very comfortable. I would stay here again. It's a good option if you don't need to be in the CBD but you want something central and within walking distance of a lot of attractions.

Lovely room, great locationPosted Jun 8, 2015
Pros: Location, water views, comfort & cleanliness
Cons: Faster lifts
Location: The location on the wharf is perfect - close to an incredible number of top restaurants with water views and the city skyline.
Took my wife away for our ten year anniversary. We were dining at a local restaurant (and let's face it, there are some amazing restaurants on the wharf), so Blue made sense. We weren't at all disappointed, the hotel was nice, the bed large and comfortable, the facilities great. But in the end, it was all about the location and the view over Sydney Harbour!

Great location lovely hotel - but I was COLD!!!!Posted Jun 4, 2015 on Lastminute
Let down by cold corridors, cold room (though staff were lovely and explained I could have been sent a heater!! but really - a heater, in a 4-5 start hotel? They did explain because heritage building etc, but I would only return in summer after this week's experience. Such a shame - but warmth is a basic comfort, and critical to overall experience in my view. Staff very very lovely and good concierge etc. In winter, i would be reducing rooms open, and making sure areas kept warm to ensure no bad impressions. First impressions matter to business travelers. Good luck with refurb, hope it includes sophisticated heating / cooling :)

Outstanding HotelPosted Jun 4, 2015 on Hotels
Always a great little place to stay. Rooms clean, layout exactly what it needs to be and staff more than accomodating. If there has to be one opportunity for improvement, it would be the 'Water Bar'. Service practically non-existent and, despite the well-appointed fit out, no atmosphere at all, irrespective of the time of day.
