"Friendly staff, comfortable hotel. Good value."
Arrived before 10am. Staff courteous, and friendly. Booked us in straight away. Room was comfortable. On a busy road but did not notice noise, as there were blackout blinds and I think double glazing. Roof top pool nice. Small gym. Breakfast best price if booked at reception night before. Kylie lovely breakfast manager, very helpful.
If 2 people or more, for couple dollars more, a taxi rather than shuttle is best airport transfer. Ours was about 50 bucks, but that was not rush hour.
The hotel backs onto a lovely park and small marina. It s about 5 min walk from Kings Cross station, but this is mostly up steep hill. We got lost on way back, so good to take address of hotel, and maybe couple snaps of it s location on your phone, no one we asked had heard of it, so waited at bus stop and asked driver. It seems it is in Bayswater Rd, but another road starts a few yards on from the hotel, and that's what was shown on our map, hence confusion.
Suggest you check out an Opal card if you re staying a few days. For 20 dollars we made lots of journeys, rather than the 8 bucks daily return. Simpler too no queuing for tickets, just buy at news agent just outside of station. Was valid on the ferries too.
Food at hotel was great, no complaints, we asked for poached eggs as only scrambled at buffet, this provided without problem.
Found the hotel good value for money, great staff, comfy rooms, would definitely use again.
