The hotel staff was friendly at the time of greeting. The check-in process was straightforward, and we were show the room in no time. Room was clean and had a view of the main road. The best thing about this hotel was the location, as it was surrounded by many restaurants, cafes, supermarket, a pharmacy, and public transportation. It was slightly hard to find the entrance of the hotel, as it's located on top of the pub. The complementary continental breakfast is very basic, so we ended having breakfast outside of the hotel. There is no safe. No late check-out option is available, even if the hotel is practically empty. For a 4* hotel, it's very basic.
Head upstairs past the noisy pub crowd to the restaurant and you'll find an elegant and quiet place to enjoy a superb meal. I recommend the Australian fish known as barrumundi. The menu has a good variety. The meals are beautifully prepared and presented. A bonus- the prices are reasonable as well.
Had the most amazing meal at this restaurant - has a pub facade but awesome bistro upstairs with really friendly staff. Large servings and Sunday roast was amazing - do yourself a favour - you will not be disappointed and all at amazing pub prices.
we were very surprise with the hotel and the room, due to it being in the Surry Hills area, as most of the buildings are Heritage. The breakfast facilities were fantastic with a lot of choices. Star was brilliant, her customer service skills were first class.Even though the hotel was in a very busy part of Surry Hills and had a cocktail bar with music, we didn't hear anything in our room. The windows were double glazed. We usually stay in the CBD area of Sydney we would certainly stay at the Crown again.
Arrived early morning after a long flight from the UK, owner couldn’t have been more helpful. We were able to check in straight away, and our room upgraded! Room was extremely clean, modern and very spacious. Above a sports bar, but soundproofed & 30/40 mins walk into the main city centre, would recommend.
