    We regularly dine at The Shakespeare so thought we'd try booking a night after going to the Rugby Test. It was great. The room was comfy. Communal bathroom was not a problem. Staff are amazing & patrons friendly. Definitely stay there again.

    If you are ok with pub accomodation you'll be fine with a stay here. Shared bathroom/toilets, this weary but not worn out hotel can get busy on weekends, but the crowd is friendly and the food is good. Rooms are tidy and have a nice feel to them, staff are great.

    You get what you pay for, and it’s not a bad thing.”
    Classic upstairs pub room. We had a beautiful view of Surrey Hills housing commission. Obviously the hotel is old and in need of some Reno’s (which the pictures definitely don’t show) but I guess that what gives the ‘Shakey’ it’s charm. I probably wouldn’t stay there again though. A suggested improvement would be to give clearer instructions about checking in and maybe some cups and a jug of water in the rooms.

    Dirty”
    The place looks nice from outside and in the pub but it’s not until you get in the room. The room was dirty springs hanging out of the chair and the clothes rail smashed in bits but the guys who showed us to the room didn’t seem to bother in moving them after being told. The bed was a small bed inside an old bed frame that didn’t fit either way. Apart from that it’s a room to sleep in.

    A tad expensive for the "non-existent" hotel staff n housekeeping”
    Good thing about this hotel is the short 5min walk to Central station. The room,toilet n bathroom are clean. Coffee n tea are free-flow. Poor thing about this hotel is there is no proper hotel reception. The reception is the bar downstairs n the bar can be pretty busy at times. There is noise coming from the bar n dining rooms every evening, the worst being Friday. There is no housekeeping n to change towels requires advance notice. Also, it is difficult to control the hot water temperature in the bathroom..

    Very Basic- Great location- Superb Pub food- terrific friendly staff”
    For the budget travellers... The "Shakey" would have to represent best value for money in Sydney. Don't have high expectations.... rooms are basic, no fridge and its a shared toilet/ bathroom scenario. The hotel can be noisy but not unbearable.... I liked it's location and as per the title. Will definitely go back

    A great one nigjt stay!”
    Stayed here on a Saturday night....what a great pub! Happy hour was great and meals really good and value for money. The room itself was large, and decorated like we were in shaespearian times with gaudy colours, wallpaper and chandeleir! Bed was super comfy and room had decent air con. Bathroom shared (1 between 6 rooms) but they were clean and wasnt an issue to share. The pub was right in the middle of Surry Hills, close to other pubs, restaurants and Central station. I would highly recommend a stay (i was.in room 2) if you want something a bit different that is great value for money.

    We really enjoyed our stay. The room (we stayed in room 4) was private, with great light and comfy furniture. The food and atmosphere downstairs was great and pub staff were no fuss and friendly. It would have been nice to have access to soap and a hair drier in the bathroom/room. And some extra pillows.

    Disgustingly dirty”
    The food is good quality
    I could talk about the surliness of the staff, being woken up by the so-called cleaners at 6am everyday, the peeling wallpaper, the cobwebs, dirty bathroom tiles, broken taps, or blown lightbulbs but it's the following that makes this place the most abysmal place I've stayed in: On the floor by the bed was a $10 note and a used sanitary towel. The towel was disgusting enough but the $10 is a true testament to the lackadaisical performance of the cleaners.
