Excellent location; walking distance to both lines of "Hop On/Hop Off"; near waterfront and restaurants; clean comfortable room; allowed us to store luggage at 9 a.m. with check in much later in the day; helpful and friendly; planning upgrades to bathrooms; comfortable room; good value for the money; breakfast is far above average and is included.

The Mariners Court was initially designed as a retired marine officers house, and this can be seen in the internal and external design. The age of the hotel (more than a quarter of a century) can also be seen - it looks tired and 'old' without being in style. The location is at mid distance from the nice harbor area,...

Stayed here 3 nights waiting for a cruise ship arrival. The bed is very comfortable, the towels are very thick and soft and the location is great - it being 150 yards walk down to the harbour. Good quality restaurants nearby - try Siena Marina brasserie for lovely food. Breakfast included was a bonus and offered good fruit juice, cereals,...

The breakfast was perfect for us: a range of cereal, fruit, toast, a small hot English buffet. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bed is extremely comfortable. The fixtures are outdated, however the bathrooms are being renovated this Summer. Amazing location in Wooloomooloo wharf, 10 minute walk to Hyde Park, the botanical gardens and the city centre, 25 minutes...

After taking 5 days to reach our destination from Toronto to Sydney, Australia, that should have taken two days and keeping the hotel informed that we were experiencing flight delays and would not be making the first two nights of our booking - the attitude of the manager was that we should make a claim with our insurance company to...

The manager is fantastic, helped us with what ever question we had. This hotel is close to Navy yard, yet within walking distance to eating, and near public transportation or just walking to center. Unfortunately we had to tell the cab drivers how to find it :)

Me and my husband went there and stay for a night. Overall everything is good. Bed comfy and clean. Shower has a nice hot water. The Aircon nice and works well but we have to turn it on every couple hours because it was set automatically off every couple hours. I love their pillow feels good to sleep on. Had...

We stayed 4 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The location is exceptional, ideal for public transport or walking to the centre of Sidney. The harbour can be seen from the breakfast balcony! The breakfast is superb, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, and hot food. Lovely rooms with balcony and so quiet. The reason I have not given 5* is...
