The only thing missing from a superb five-star experience is Free Parking
Need a parking of its own.

Good value for money
We stayed there with our 6 and 8 year olds and we all had a really good time. Beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. Staff were really nice and room service meals were good too. They do not charge you the exorbitant $6-9 to bring your meals to your room like several other hotels do. The hotel is bit dated but very clean and rooms are tidy. Roof top pool is excellent.

Great location
We stayed here after a function nearby and it was great. The room we booked was a bit small for 3 adults but given the purpose it was fine as we weren't in the room for long

Hotel was ok. Small dated rooms with a constant air conditioning drone we couldn't turn off, beds were not particularly comfortable, there was a gorgeous view from the rooftop but the pool & surrounds were so small , crowded & uninviting we didn't swim, staff were friendly & helpful & the location was perfect.

Good location
Good location in The Rocks. Our room was on the first floor, and I was concerned about noise, so they moved us to a higher level immediately.
