Another great Design Hotels property. A beautifully refurbished space, they kept a lot of the old and added just the right amount of modern. Funky, chic and class, that whole old and new mixture. A fun staff. A comfortable, attractive room and a great looking bathroom… all you need for a few days in Sydney.
Great Bar and the restaurants are super-duper. When I was there, there was a Pop-up breakfast/brunch in the hotel. Truth be know, I had reservations at Automata and didn’t realize it was located at the hotel until I checked in, how convenient is that!
Speaking of Automata, a wonderful restaurant, the best meal I had on this Australia trip. A changing 5-course set menu with local wines and beers to compliment the food. Totally tastey and fun dining.
