The Corus is an excellent base for a stay in Sydney.It is well maintained and clean with friendly staff and good laundry facilities.Its greatest asset is its position---a short walk from Circular Quay and right by Wynyard Station making it very easy to get to from the airport.We would certainly stay here again
A very good hotel. Perfect location and helpful staff. We would certainly stay here again.
Excellent positon, 10 mins. from Circular Quay, & the Rocks, 50yds from train station that comes straight from the airport.
We were 2 adults and a child. The room with one queen and one single bed was tiny. There was no space for our suit case. Getting into and out of the bathroom almost required a sideways turn. We asked for an upgrade to an appartment/suite but found we were discriminated against because we had a six year old child. "No kids in the appartments" we were told. There were available appartments but not for us. I wondered who but a family would require the extra space an appartment has? The staff were friendly enough and they gave us 'til noon to use their parking area on check out day but we don't think we'll stay with them again.
Stay here during the first week of my honeymoon in October 03. It came recommended for it's location and price, which where good, but I wish I had paid a little extra to stay elsewhere. The hotel generally was ok, nothing special, however it was not very well run. We request a non-smoking room when we booked and also phoned two days before arrival to confirm are details. During the phone call it became apparent that the non-smoking request had not been receive by the hotel, but the guy on the phone said it would not be a problem. On arrival at the hotel we where give the room keys (or card as it was) and proceed to the room only to be confronted with the most terrible smell of smoke. I return to reception straight away and was told that they had no such request on there system and that there was no way they could change the room as the hotel was 'very busy'. The offered to send a member of house cleaning staff up to spray some air fresher to try and remove the smell as best they could. After this we went out for a while and assumed that when we returned the member of staff would have been and done something, however nothing appeared to have been done and it was late so we went to bed. At about 11:45pm there a knock on the door and a guy was a small can of air fresher was stood outside. Needless to say the quick spray with his air fresher did nothing and my new wife was a bit embassaced!!! We tried several more times to get the room changed but without luck. In the end we went to a local supermarket a brought some air fresher of our own to try and mask to terrible smell.
Needless to say I would not stay there again and would not recommend it to anyone more due to the unhelpfulness of the staff and lack of communication.
Stayed there in Sept 2003, and its actualy very good! The service is great and friendly. The room is actually much bigger than I expected for 1 person, it had 2 queen size bed, very nice toilet like in 5 star hotel. The only thing is they installed the water limitation thing to the shower head to save on water, so you have to shower for a little longer than usual. The room is very clean, no odours, the corridor looks 5 star as well!
A Fantastic Deal!
We loved our stay at the Corus Hotel. It was conveniently located to the train station, a short walk to the Circular Quays (Ferry terminals), and less than a block away from a grocery store and "cheap & fast" eats. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room we had was nice and bright, and was not in need of updating. We liked having a refrigerator and hot water in the rooms for coffee/tea and hot cocoa.
The gym was small but had good cardio equipment and physio balls. Great for a quick workout. The only caveat is that on the weekends, not many of the shops are open right around the hotel. It livens up considerably on the weekdays. I don't understand the star ratings between Australia and US standards. However, for the under $100 price range, it's a great deal.
Was very disappointed with this hotel given it's 31/2 to 4 start rating. Rooms were tiny and if you're unfortunate to be were we were initially (at the side of the building) it meant that you were directly looking into someone's office across the way!! We ended up spending more money to upgrade to a bigger and better room. Wouldn't recommend.
A good Tourist Hotel
After a 29 hour flight, we were hoping our room would be ready early, and they kindly let us have a room as soon as we arrived.
Very nice room, not the Ritz, but funtional and clean.
I admit, if you want 4 star to mean glam and glitz, you won't get it.
But as a hotel for the tourist who wants comfort and convenience it is perfect.
My rating is higher as I found all of the staff very helpful, and always knew the answer to any questions I had. Rare in a City Hotel.
Disaapointed with the Corus Hotel, Sydney. While the location is good and easy access to/from the airport - and the staff friendly and efficient - the rooms are desperately in need of refurbishing - and look old and tired. Definitely not worthy of being classed as a 4 star hotel - more like 2 to 3 star. If you want somewhere nice to stay - don't stay here - if you just want a bed it's fine but you can do better elsewhere.

Today we boarded the coach for a city tour. We passed a lot of historic buildings, some as old as 80 years!!. Our first stop was at McQuarie's Chair, near the Botanic Gardens. it was a real tourist spot as there is a prime view of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. The place was full of Japanese gabbling away and taking photos of themselves, plus …
Breakfast was orange juice and the remains of the custard tart - it was OK actually. To the post office again to send yesterday's souvenirs - another $51.
We got the luggage out of the apartment at 9.15 and tried to leave our carry-on bags at reception for an hour while we went to the Botanical Gardens. They insisted they'd take them to …
... Hmmm. Walked back up George Street which was adorned with loads of colourful flags advertising Australia Day on 26 Jan, and got back to the hostel at 18h30. Had an avo, free milk and a peach for supper and read all the pamphlets I had picked up along the way today.
Australia is the world’s largest island and the smallest continent. It covers an area of over 7 million km sq and 60,000 km of coastline. It is twice the size of Europe and about the same size ...
... my appetite for a good serving of meat! A month of eating out of a small Chinese bowl with chopsticks had also brought a real appreciation of the knife and fork and their superior ability to aid food consumption! Similarly I noted the prices for a pizza were off the scale, on a few occasions a $24 magarita was spotted, and not even in particularly noteworthy restaurants. I spotted a regular sized magarita for $24 from a late night take-out, and yes, plenty of people ...
... in their 4x4 all around the mountains and saw loads of wild kangaroos, and even a kangaroo with a Joey in her pouch!!! We had already been to the Blue Mountains with OzIntro but because it was a guided tour we had to stick to a particular route, whereas this way we got to go to places that we hadn't seen before that were right off the beaten track, a lovely lovely day and nice to be with family!!
