Quiet perfect stay

A great stay, comfortable bed, shower perfect ( plenty of hot water ). Perfect location and a short walk to all shops, cafés, train station etc. Close ( 200m ) from a great pub, the Rag and Famish, if you want a great drink and great atmosphere. Off street and under cover parking available for 10 cars only. Only down fall, but got over it, the room didn't have Foxtel.

Bad experience

Bad hotel. Hotel was renovating so they give us free complimentary breakfast. Guess what- breakfast with bread coffee tea or juice and they charge $8 for that. Can't believe it. It far from north Sydney station and you have to walk a slope far enough to reach the hotel. It will be gd if you are drinking.

Family night in the city

Great little hotel Has a lovely old world feel but totally modern. Staff where really friendly and courteous, showing us to our room and explaining the inclusions and options. If you plan to travel to North Sydney this is an ideal spot to stay if you don't want to pay the exorbitant prices of the brand hotels. The room was quiet with a separate balcony area and was quite adequate with good inclusions.

Quiet boutique hotel

Lovely quiet leafy street, easy walking distance to cafes and the harbour. Friendly staff, delightful breakfast room with sunny courtyards. Comfortable room with door to private courtyard; nice to be able to have fresh air.

Very comfortable and convenient hotel. Staff are most obliging and friendly. Love the quiet ambience of the building, no lift noises and hustle and bustle of big hotels.

Nice hotel in a nice quiet street

All good except my room, No 2, is situated next to a very noisy piece of machinery that kept switching on and off all night, and most times it started operating, it would me up. Not good

Quaint Hotel Northside

Hotel was very nice and the standard room was very spacious. The only negative was a slight musty smell which I seemed to clear after having windows open. The staff were friendly and a continental breakfast was a very reasonable $7.00 a person. There was free car parking which was excellent. The location was great and only two train stops to Sydney and there was plenty of restaurants nearby.

Great work location

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful; overall the stay was very good value in a very well-maintained character-filled federation-style building with ready internal access to parking, comfortable breakfast area and good facilities. Will stay again.

excellent value for money

quietly located in a busy area (north sydney) with relatively easy access to CBD and downtown (800 meters to north sydney station, 10 mins walk). clean room, good facilities (cosy sitting room and dinning room at lobby), a family B&B feeling of hotel experience (a nice 2 floor house with a small garden). very kind and helpful staff (especially Lily).
