Check in was speedy. Unfortunately I was not able to get in my room until noon.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lobby has several variety of coffee, plus tea and hot chocolate, and pastries to start your day. Bottle water available also.
Overall a great stay, but disappointed not much in the way of a kitchen, just a cupboard with a jug and fridge in it. Asked for a toaster and got told it would cost $9.00 a day, we went and brought one at Target for $7.50, also a microwave would have been great.
Lovely experience. I used to stay at the Kirketon back in the Early 2000's .. the interior back then was incredible and designed by Burley Katon Halliday .. I find the interiors dulled down now and not as appealing or contemporary unfortunatley.
The hotel is well placed in the west of Sydney, with easy access to several bus routes into the city centre. Bus stops are within a stones throw and get you into the city centre in 15 minutes.
Hotel staff friendly and helpful.
Our room was a bit small for a 'double' size
A few criticisms of the room made my overall rating a 4 instead of 5 for this hotel.
1) the bedsheets were not changed in the 12 nights we spent there
2) The bath water from the Hot tap flowed out in a rusty brown colour. So bathing was uncomfortable. Shower was OK because the spray did not show the 'brown'.
Room carpet was a bit worn due to age and appeared dirty
Breakfast was very good for continental style, plenty of cereals and fresh fruits.
Yoghurt included and cheese and sliced tomato.
But I did miss having a slice of cold meat such as ham or salami.
Hotel facility included a celebrity guest lounge with use of a computer if required.
Tea, Coffee and biscuits were provided F.O.C. and a large Flat Screen TV to watch throughout the day. Comfortable Chairs and sofa to sit in provided a relaxed feel Celebrity photos of old and present stars adorned the four walls some of which had stayed at the hotel.
The receptionists were very helpful and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable.
Our arrival time was 10am, we were given a free breakfast and allowed to use the lounge until our room was ready.
Last day our flight home was 10pm.were allowed to stay 'til 4pm.
A nice hotel not quite brilliant.
