We booked directly with the hotel after reading great reviews on tripadvisor and checking out their website. We rented a car and it was a little diffuicult to find the hotel, but that may have been because it was dark, raining and we were driving on the wrong side of the road! :)
The hotel staff was very nice, although one girl gave us the wrong train station exit when we asked for directions. By the way, it's a 2 minute walk from the hotel to the train station. Literally around the corner.
The rooms were lovely, we stayed in the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. The living area was large and had a dining table, the kitchen was well-equipped and the fridge was a good size. The bedrooms were nice, I liked that they were far away from each other. Only one had a TV, but they were both well-sezed with closet space and plenty of room to walk around. We had 5 people, so our 5th person slept on the pull-out bed in the living room, she said it was very comfortable.
Internet access was offered in the room (for a fee) but it was kind of annoying because it was through a cable that plugged in behind the TV. So we had to pull a chair up next to the table the TV was on and sit there. As we were using Skype to talk to friends at home, there was no privacy.
We had a corner room, so we had double windows in our dining area, one of which was a sliding door through which I took the picture I uploaded here.
The hotel provides you with a small amount of laundry soap, dishwashing soap (there's a dishwasher), and plates, bowls, utensils, etc. They also replenish the toiletries everyday and they were nice quality.
The bathrooms were nicely sized. The bedroom with the TV had an attached bathroom and the the other bathroom was in the hall next to the other bedroom.
The hotel has a pool that we uysed each day we were there. It was heated and clean. However, the hot tub was NOT clean.
It's right across the street from a mall, a Target, a theatre, and lots of restaurants. There's actually a little shopping area right outside the door with banks and a promenade area where there was a music festival while we were there. This area seemed to be heavily trafficked by Asian people (not a problem, just an observation), but most of Sydney is like that.
The hotel provides menus for takeout in the room from a variety of restaurants - Indian, Italian, Thai, burgers, etc.

... I'm English not British!!. Then this afternoon we drove to Palm Beach, this is where Home and Away is shot, it must be 20 years since I last watched it though. We first stopped at West Head which is on the opposite peninsula and overlooks Palm Beach, you could see a surf ski competition taking place in the water, there were hundreds of vessels. From there we went to the duck ponds which are naturally formed billabongs caused by a loose stone ...
... an order or two to boot. I noted that a lot of the stalls were infact the local shops, just selling their stuff out in the street, as well as the many cafe or restaurants. There was certainly no shortage of food stalls with every kind of grub imaginable. Having perused the first street, we reached the Royal Oak. Staff in this place didn't look all that happy, and Poppy was not impressed that she had been blanked by the girl who she had gone in to see about being included ...
... on a chair next to the baggage carousel. This was riveting. Both Dad and I fell asleep for varying durations. When it was finally time to check in we jumped at the chance, only to wait another two hours at the gate lounge. We finally boarded the plane to the sound of tanty kid but at least we were getting closer to home. Fantastic greeting from Charli at the airport and then home to unpack. What a great ...
... of 2012 I started the serious planning with many variations to the itinerary occurring as it took shape (I think the final plan is number 12 of the different itineraries) but at the centre of the plan was to catch the Trans-Siberia train.
I have learnt heaps about trains in Europe and when to book and where they go and how they can fit in my timetable.
The internet has a wealth of people’s experiences and discoveries to learn from and is ...
... and padlock it, I was surprised and queried it. The check in lady, who was very pleasant, re-weighed the bags and guess what? It was a mistake! So no excess!
Because of all this I didn’t even bother to check what seats we had been assigned.
So we then proceeded through emigration. Here was a great concept. You go to a machine and put your passport in with the photo page showing and a ticket would come out.
