... In addition she found a really nice check top shirt and so we bought those. By now I was getting ****** as it was already marching on for 12:40pm.

We got back and said our goodbyes to Dad and loaded Barbara’s car and off to the airport.

She dropped us at about 1:40pm and we proceeded to check in. We had a scare there as they wanted to charge me NZ$40 for excess baggage. Now as I had taken the double to go and get an extra ...

4 Sleeps To Go....

... I did finally see him again I made him god-parent to my daughter Jessie-Mae. I remember thinking at the time: “That should fix him” – and sure enough I was right. Jack stopped seeing me all together for a while. If I saw
him at all it was a coincidence, Mick too for that matter. But I managed to put enough positive Ice-O-Topes out there into the atmosphere (that’s a Vancouver hockey team reference for my friend Mike Mowatt) and eventually ran ...

I see dead people

When we finally awoke again it was back to just the 2 of us. We decided to lie in again and regain our strength.

We finally got up and got ready and headed down to the rocks for an afternoon of exploring.

On the way down we stopped off at the shops and purchased some more books - we are actually reading quite a bit on this trip. Takes me back to my English A-Level and all the reading ...

Must impress

A travel blog entry by sophieackland


I've managed to get myself a set seat at work which I am so happy with. I was having odd down days because I didn't have a permanent spot at work, it was great moving around the firm and experiencing the different departments but I realised I was more of a settler and just wanted a set seat. I had such an amazing time, with so many laughs at Freshfields and being here and floating around was totally different and ...

"G'day" the Immigration guy said. Yes, I was definitely in Oz! I was scanned, frisked, stamped and ready to see what Sydney had to offer. I saw the airport concierge who told me the best way to get to my hotel (cheapest) was to take the Airbus, door to door. Great, at 7 that wasn't too bad so I bought my ticket. I waited as instructed for the "guide" to take me, together with 6 others, to the pickup point. Thats where the fun began! The guide appeared and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Altamont Hotel Sydney - by 8Hotels

    Backpackers Only


    This hotel is the first hotel in Australia that I've stayed in that doesn't provide soap. At the price, that came as a shock - OK if you're backpacking, but not for a business traveller. Although the bed was comfortable and the TV worked fine, the room had a number of problems. There was no shower curtain, so the water goes everywhere and the hot water tap on the hand basin leaked (had to turn it off to get any sleep). The room had a thin door to the roof garden and as there were 3 backpackers outside until very late, the noise was a big problem. There were lots of other problems in the room, but, basically, this hotel is poor value for money and not the place to go if you want a good nights sleep.

    Didnt work for us


    Maybe I just didnt "get it", maybe I was spoilt by 3 weeks in Thailand, but I was dissapointed with my stay here.

    The room would have been nice when it was opened but now was worse for wear, not enough lights, mirrors hard to use, no handtowels or face cloths. The breakfast buffet was minimal, no fruit (in Australia no fruit?)

    And there was junk stored in odd corners. Yes I know boutique hotels are supposed to be a bit quirky but this just felt like amateur hour.

    I dont know what...maybe 'class'


    A lovely warm welcoming atmosphere,a great feel,as opposed to the sterility of others....and even a fabulous.

    Excellent Hotel!


    Excellent hotel in a great area of sydney! On a busyish road but suprisingly quiet at night!

    Nice large rooms and a relaxed atmosphere!

    You will not find a better hotel for AUS $90 anywhere in sydney!

    Loved it!

    Great hotel and great location


    I loved this hotel and loved the location. It was walking distance to plenty of restaurants and bars. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and always had great suggestions for dining. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. I wish it had an in-room safe but other than that I had no complaints. I'd recommend this hotel to my friends and I'd stay here again.

    Cute with loadz of charm


    we were reccommeded to stay at the altamont thru friends..we normally stay at larger hotels but decided to give it a chance.....the hotel has so much character...our room was large and airy with a cute little courtyard which apparantly is hard to find in sydney.....the staff were very helpful and made us feel right at home.....also the location is superb...central to everything worth seeing and doing in sydney...we stayed for two weeks and would defintely recommend....

    Give This Place a Big Miss


    This place is SHOCKING! Totally incompetent staff from booking right through to check out. The whole place smells of cigarette smoke and is very dirty. The room I stayed in had walls crumbling off and were covered in mildew, the blinds are litterally brown with water stains, the bed had springs sticking right through and only 1 lamp worked in the whole room. Dont do it! Sure the location is great, but this place is gross!



    A gorgeous little hotel located in the heart of Darlinghurst.The decor is really interesting and comfortable, it has Indonesian furniture throughout and a stunning rooftop garden.

    The best part was the price and the warm service offered by the management.

    Highly reccommend to all types of travellers.

    Simply BAD


    I booked this hotel one year in advance based on the write ups I had read. One month for arrival I was contacted and forced to prepay although I was told that my reservation would be held with a credit card until check in time.

    I paid as requested, but when I arrived the room was not as advertised.

    The bathroom was covered in mold, the shower leaked into the main bathroom area and the carpet was filthy.

    They CHAINED the main entrance after 8PM because they claim that reception is then closed. At the same time they do not allow any incoming phone calls.

    I requested a refund for the balance of my stay but the refused to refund me. This is more like a youth hostel than a high end hotel as advertised.

    The most unique friendly well priced boutique hotel


    This little hotel is perhaps the friendliest, best located , best priced and generally really cool boutique hotel that i have stayed at and I see alot being a travel writer.I highly reccommend it, and a tip, negotiate a great rate with the management,they encourage it.Enjoy
