As former residents of the area, we have regularly stayed at this hotel over the past 2 years. It is an easy walk from Central Station and with good public transport access to the city & airport. Although a little dated, the rooms and ensuites are spacious, clean, quiet and value for money. The hotel is open late and the bistro provides a variety of pub fare for lunch & dinner. A number of breakfast options are available within a short walk. Try the unnamed cafe run by an elderly chinese couple at the bus stop on the corner of Devonshire & Elizabeth Sts. Full english breakfast and good coffee for under $7 cooked exactly to your requirements. If your not 5 star travellers, then this is a good value option.

... 8230; the Tudor style hotel was a landmark - now renovated and unrecognisable – more 20th Century than 16th Century.

I thought there used to be a popular pie shop there but now Maccas and a Subway shop seem to be the only commercial food places … well that I could see. There’s nothing these days to make us want to stop there apart from a “rest” stop at Maccas and a couple of FWs to ...

... of birds ranging from the smaller sparrow types, to beautiful red and green parrots! It was wonderful to just stand and take everything in for a few minutes. It suddenly dawned on me, within a few days we would be leaving Australia; this wonderful country that holds so many wonderful memories for us, enough memories to last us a life time. It’s a funny old place, somewhere so far from home, yet we have been made to feel so welcome. It made me ...

... Shard, but thankfully the rainforest canopy shielded the height. On the Skyway they both stood on the glass bottomed area which is 275 metres above the rainforest and took great delight jumping up and down on the glass! The following day we went on the "I'm free" tour of Sydney, which as it states is a free tour (always useful) and we were really impressed by the knowledge of our guide including in the QVB (Queen ...

... the weather. We decided to head into Madam Tussauds. As we walked there it continued to rain, the hoods on both our jackets were definitely welcome. I did have umbrellas with us, but it was too windy to use them. For the first time all trip, the girl selling us our tickets to Madam Tussauds actually knew what the digital Entertainment Book voucher was and exactly what to do with it! Yay! It was an enjoyable hour or so wandering through the wax figures. It is ...

... of fun to watch with everyone because Casey and Carter knew what was happening, I had a pretty good idea, and mostly everyone else was entertained with Casey's celebrations. We were given the blow up tubes for free when we entered the stadium. So naturally Casey pulled them out and played with them the entire game. It was really cool to watch the game and see how different sporting events are down here compared to back home. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the respect fans had ...
