The location was the key: close in to what we wanted to do & ready access to public transport. Unfortunately, this was the typical Holiday Inn: poorly maintained with worn out fixtures & amenities, charge for every conceivable thing...including
services neither used nor wanted...& very aggressively priced. We are returning to Sydney in 2 weeks, but not to this hotel.
The reception and Concierge staff was helpful and friendly and the location was good but the restaurant experience was terrible, the food choices are poor and if you ask for any simple things like an egg omelet which is not in the buffet and you
will be charged an arm and a leg. The food and drink choices were very limited and you have to make your own Juice if you need one, so have your apron ready with you as well. Internet was also very expensive, bath room wasn't that new. Overall what you pay what you get and if you add all the extra expenses you will incur you will be paying like a 5 star hotel price but not the service.
