The bunk bed was comfortable and I slept well. I got woken up by the girl who was on the top bunk rummaging her suitcase to pack her back pack, she left early for some trip.

Then later the church bells rang, it was Sunday and the other two girls woke up, they were from Switzerland and really friendly; they told me they had …

... will have to wait. **** do I regret that decision. I mentioned how big the waves were this week didn't I? Did I also mention that waves that big are no good for beginners and/or long boards? Did I mention that my board is a second hand cheapie? Well I paid the price for all this when a wave neatly folded my surfboard into two pieces. I must admit travelling on public transport without a 7ft tall bag is a hell of a lot less stressful though. Maybe I'll buy ...

... Bondi and Manly searching for the perfect rip. All 3 surf spots have been completely rammed full of like minded wave riders and despite venturing into experienced surfer territory for clean, unbroken waves, I've made a pretty good job of staying out of trouble. Then a dreadlocked dude (no ****) came out of nowhere and now there's two scrapes on my leg from his fins. I hope you got my snapchat claiming I was shark attacked.

... me. It was very exciting to return to the school, even if it was not open. We will have to come back during the week so we can see the inside and meet some of the teachers who are still there. We can’t wait.

The sports grounds at Shore have been greatly improved since we left, with a Grand Stand on the main oval and the Football field and Tennis courts redone. It's a fantastic school that is ready to celebrate its ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Sydney Wentworth

    My favourite in Sydney - superb!


    This would have to be one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at in Sydney - and I've stayed in many including the Intercontinental, Menzies, etc. The remodelling is beautiful, even if the rooms aren't overly large. The staff are so very accommodating and helpful, the location is perfect, and the king beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept in at a hotel. One of the biggest pluses is the sensational buffet breakfast. I look forward to each visit here and this is my third stay. This place must have great feng shui - it has a lovely outlook with its little balconies overlooking the terrace and it is sometimes hard to believe it is in the middle of the city. On my previous stay, during the renovations, there was a mix up with my last minute internet booking. I was politely asked by the staff member at the desk if I wouldn't mind waiting a moment while he talked to his manager. I thought "Here we go, we're out on the street". But no! After pointing out that the hotel's standard rooms were fully booked out, my family was accommodated by the hotel in two of its gorgeous One Bedroom King Suites (for the price I had paid for two standard rooms). They were phenomenal! With customer care like that, plus all the other good points mentioned above, I couldn't recommend this hotel more highly.

    Excellent Hotel


    My wife and I stayed here recently after all the renovations were completed. Staff excellent and efficient. Check in and out took less than 2 minutes. Room was beautifully decorated with many personel touches. The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. We paid only $200 per night for a Sat which is great value for a 5 * hotel. The bathroom was beautiful with wall to wall marble and a large cast iron bathtub that easily fits 2 people. The soaps and shampoos were all first class with many lighting combinations. The room whilst not overly large was spacious with a chair/table and a single lounge chair. All lights can be controlled from the comfort of your bed. Porterage was excellent with no expectation of a large tip. Valet parking excellent and efficient for $30, good value and as we used the car several times we found it useful. The buffet breakfast was first class and not rushed and although expensive at $35 not excessive for a 5 * hotel. Being an Accor hotel entitles you to substantial discounts if you joint the Advantage club. Newspaper arrived on time.

    Stylish hotel, great bed, great location


    Really enjoyed a recent stay at the Sofitel. I book various hotels in Sydney on a regular basis, usually based on locations of meetings or price.

    This was a little more than I'd usually spend (about A$250 through wotif) but it was worth it. The room was a decent size, it was really central (close to business area but 2 blocks from beautiful botanical gardens) and the room service food I ordered was actually VERY good - a rarity in hotels I find.

    I really enjoyed my stay.

    The Wentworth is back in style!


    I had stayed in the Wentworth a few times prior to it's recent refurbishment and back then it was not one of the places I preferred to stay. Well how thing's change! The decor has had a fabulous face lift the lobby as always is lovely. The rooms are now all fitted out with blonde timber fittings, lush bedding and soft furnishings and all the usual creature comforts you would expect. Maybe I was super tired - but the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever had. The bathrooms are older but still in excellent condition, a real shower (none of this shower head over a bath tub business) and as a female a much appreciated fabulous touch - having a wall mounted make up mirror that lights up. The L'occitan products in the bathroom are also great. Another great feature is the lighting in these rooms, no more dingy hotel room lighting they have really thought it out. The location as always is very good, right across the road from Chifley Plaza not too far from the Opera House and in a nice quiet area. Also the bar downstairs has great entertainment on Friday/Saturday and extremley nice bar staff. All in all The Wentworth has now moved up the ranks to my favourite hotel in Sydney!

    Pleasant and comfortable


    Perched unassumingly in a location that suits both leisure and business travellers, Sydney's Wentworth Hotel is unusual in two respects. Firstly, it has some sort of history - admittedly, most of it not in the present building. Secondly, its design has some old-fashioned features of the kind that frequent hotel stayers pine for these days, such as properly soundproofed rooms and windows that can be opened (at least on the lower floors). The Wentworth could almost be called a venerable hotel - sufficiently venerable, anyway, for it to be the regular location for the current Australian Prime Minister's recurring election night celebrations.

    Loved it! Service was wonderful


    I booked a number of rooms to accomodate my hens night and my husbands bucks night before the wedding.

    The Wentworth is back !


    The Wentworth is back and that is excellent. Recent reviews have panned it due to the extensive renovations that had been undertaken but these seem to be mostly complete and this Sydney icon lives up to its billing. I stayed there for two nights just as the Olymopuc flame reached Sydney - in fact they had the flame arrive at a fundraising breakfast there!

    Wentworth Not Ready for Prime Time


    The Wentworth is undergoing a serious renovation. During this time there is no air conditioning, shops, pool or many amenities. The rooms are in shabby condition in certain ways, including carpets, sinks and bathroom fixtures. Windows when opened to cool the room admit moths that are relentless. Hammering and drilling lasts until the evening of most days making the rooms rather noisy. The hotel staff refuse to admit that there are problems and when asked to make the rooms cooler they send up electric fans. The hotel at the moment is barely two stars, although the restaurant and bars are attempting to make up the slack. You should not stay there unless necessary.

    Worst Room I've stayed in


    Probably the worst room I've stayed in.

    The only thing 5 star about the Wentworth is the loby. I would rate the room 2.5 star. Not worth the money I paid. The only good thing here is the location.

    Their standard room is tiny and stuffy and the windows are small which makes for rather dark rooms.

    The air-conditioning was not working and opening the windows was not an option as moths are everywhere. The room looks tired and the bath is chipped.

    Would probably look better once the renovation is finished but there is nothingthey can do about the size of the rooms and windows.

    First top hotel in Sydney


    Elegant, well located, this was the first hotel inSydney to be considered five-star. You can'tgo wrong staying here. Very Australian upmarket.They have a lot of government receptions, etc.
