                      8.6

                      I chose the hotel because of it's close proximity to Central Station. A short walk with luggage in tow. Early checkout, and off to station for train to International Airport.

                      Great location for inbound/outbound travelers taking trains to or from airport. As well as being near the heart of Sydney.

                      Pleased to say I have no negative comments.

                      The front staff were just lovely I would stay there again and I have already told my friends from the Central West nsw. Excellent

                      Value for money, easy to get to from airports

                      Too far from central city, no cafe's close by

                      Very spacious room. Large and comfortable bed. Pretty clean inside the room. Good room service

                      Still renovating. Interior fit outs are largely not finished. Painting on room doors and unfinished swipe locks make hotel corridors look old and trashed. Should look heaps better when it's all finished. O, and the lobby aquarium was not anywhere compared to the photo on the website. The spa was broken when we went too.

                      In room dining menu and convenient location

                      Tardiness in making up rooms. Also unable to assist in location of a scissors.

                      The staff are always efficient but the best thing is the size of the rooms. Great.

                      Coffe wasn't great and wasn't replenished when room was serviced.

                      Location

                      Toilet was not cleaned properly.Carpet in the room behind the sofa set was dirty.The walls of the room had patches of different paint and was not white washed.

                      I liked the beds comfortable, Doonas & pillows soft and cuddley

                      Large room, correct number and type of towels, parking on site.

                      Upon check-in, the room rate was more than the Booked.net price we had confirmed. This was changed but the assistant then had to find another room and this took some time.

                      Position was better than I thought, easily walked to places that suited us and if not, could drive or catch public transport quickly.

                      Disappointed with room interior and cleanliness. I would have expected the Sebel to be maintained at a higher standard.

                      6.6

                      Its close by to the city and also to the place where we were attending to our business while we there for 4 days.Staff were helpful but very agumentative.Guest need to be told also in advance through making reservation that you will be charge for parking.I have know idea how they worked that amount they charge weather its short or long term you will be charged for $30 .

                      Parking as a house guest we should be allowed to park for free.Breakfast vouchers should be a choice for the guest to make not being force into it.Confusion on our bookings we were being overcharge to another extra $300aus .Our total booking cost from Booked.net was around 650 upon check in we were told that we have 950 something that we need to pay upon check out.The hotel got the information that it was 3 adults checking in not a couple with a baby/

                      The friendly and incredibly helpful staff on the front desk.

                      Not enough bath towels.
