    Love the feel of this place! (Not a group as I was just with my mum but no other optiones were available) - A really beautiful place that I've always wanted to try! I loved hanging out in the common bar area at night doing my work and they pretty much let you stay until whenever you wanted to. The cafe is lovely and the staff were very friendly. The only downside was that the carpet might need to get redone as it was old and quite damp. The bathroom fans were also super loud and it came on when you turned the lights on, which wasn't ideal for when you needed to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night as I didn't want to wake my mum up!

    Great staff, very cosy room but too far for wifi!For the location and the attractiveness of the the hotel, this was a real bargain. The room was definately 'cosy' but just enough space for the two of us and two large bags. It was clean and functional but cold! Although the aircon unit worked as heating. We did book this room on the basis of the wifi but our room was quite far out of the main building and picked up no signal at all, which was a bit annoying. We could use it in the lounge and main hotel areas though. Breakfast was nice and simple but all we needed. Good value that it was Included. The food and wine were fantastic and the atmosphere was great. Would stay again!

    Marvellous Hotel and Friendly Staff”

    I stayed in a standard room for 10 nights (room 21) and had a great time. The room (and hotel) is a bit faded but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was small but everything worked well. The bathroom was more modern than the room. The breakfast was a good and fresh continental with more options available for a supplement. The staff was very friendly. The hotel was ideally placed between Bondi and the city by bus and I would thoroughly recommend it.

    Buffet breakfast, service, foxtel included

    Lovely! Delicious buffet breakfast and great service. We were very excited to see how beautiful our bedroom was for the weekend! Very tidy apartment. Beautiful area of town. Public transport super easy to get into the CBD. Only downside to staying in Terrace Room 1 is you can hear everything on the floor above. It didn't sound like there was any sound barriers, even for bathroom use above! Perhaps street parking passes would be a good idea for guests? Otherwise you have to move your car every 2 hours to avoid a parking ticket as there aren't enough Hotel Parking spaces available for all guests.

The room and bathroom was clean, and breakfast was very nice, a nice selection of breads, savories, fruit, and the rest, and a lovely space to dine. The staff was very polite and helpfull. Lovely location, not fair from the airport by Taxi. I would definetly stay again.

    Location was fantastic, lovely old heritage. Nice and clean

    Great, the hotel was really a lovely little slice of old charm and privacy in the heart of a fantastic area in Sydney. A few steps in one direction you have vibrant Paddington with great shopping and art, a few steps in the other direction you have a the quiet village atmosphere in Woollahra. Hotel was very clean and well presented. Modern bathroom inside a heritage bedroom with a lovely sundeck to eat and read outside and enjoy Syd's perfect weather.

    Old-fashioned charm.

    Quirky private hotel, old-fashioned building and furnishings with grace and charm. Great lounge and bar areas, comfy library and very accommodating staff. This is not a hotel for bright young things looking for noise and it is not close to night life, not that I found anyway. But if you are after respite from a noisy city, this is a haven.

    good location with off street parking”

    24 hour reception and friendly staff

    We booked a Queen Victoria room and were upgraded to King Deluxe Suite with King size bed and renovated bathroom which was away from traffic noise of Queen Street and spacious. Traffic noise can be a problem with the rooms overlooking Queen Street which can be noisy at weekends. Breakfast which is included in the tariff is very adequate with good choices The breakfast room is adjacent to the lounge area. On the morning we went down for breakfast a family with a large dog were eating breakfast in the lounge area with the dog sprawled out in the middle of the loungeroom floor. Whilst the Hughenden is dog friendly and we have never encounted a problem previously we thought this was inappropriate. We have seen small dogs here over the years we have been staying, which are never a problem. We recently had dinner in the Hughenden restaurant and would highly recommend it to guests.

    characterful place”

    characterful place, excellent location

    This is lovely characterful place to stay, an ideal antidote to chain hotels. I felt very much at home in the pleasantly rambling Victorian character of the building and the interesting things on the walls. Also liked the garden courtyard, a peaceful place to sit. It's in a great location - lots of buses into the city and also to Bondi and Bronte beaches. Queen St is a delightful neighbourhood with one-off shops and cafes,and there are also takeaways and a decent Thai restaurant in Oxford St. Breakfast was good, different each day, and always included something hot as well as standard continental items. In the first room it was accompanied by ghastly musak though..... not so audible from the conservatory, fortunately. And on this same subject, the live 'music' on Thursday evening was so awful that we couldn't even face having a drink in the bar. That's a pity, as everything else was good, and I would certainly stay there again. Recommended.

    have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions, the staff are friendly and helpful and the reception is manned 24 hours which is great if you are arriving late. the cosy rooms are small and not much hanging space, so we pay extra and book the queen victoria rooms which are larger with better hanging space with a queen size bed as opposed to a double bed in the cosy rooms. there are pet friendly rooms which are tiled generally with a courtyard or balcony.
