          Its in the centre of the city so it depends very much on traffic - maybe 30-60 minutes by taxi. There are trains though you would not get there directly.

          Hi we are staying in Sydney on the 2 Feb 2017 and seeking quality accommodation with views if at all possible. The snag however is my husband is in a wheelchair and as a result rooms are usually of standard nature with no view. I see you rooms detail rainfall showers would they be level access and suitable for wheelchairs? I would love to be able to stay here as the reviews are superb. Please can you advise on which of your rooms may suit our needs. We would of course need the lift!!
