We had a terrible experience, they said that they didn't receive our room reservation and that they had no spare rooms, we called Expedia, they called the hotel, and suddenly they have a room for us. worst customer service I've ever had. at least the breakfast was good.

We found this place online when we were booking to go to a trade fair at the Hordern Pavilion. I'm so glad we did. It's on a tree-lined street, and oasis of calm near Oxford Street. We booked a "Cosy Room" because we're trying to save money for our very young business, and because we weren't spending much time in...

We have stayed in a standard room in the past for about $200pn. Whilst small, they were fine for our needs. We like the ambience of the old features, the lounge and dining areas are really pleasant. We have really enjoyed staying there in the past. On this occasion, we could only secure a deluxe room for $450. WHAT AN...

Stayed here 3 nights. Beautifully kept, a wonderful blend of history and modernity. Breakfast was included with the room, nice selection of fruit, cereal, cold meats and hot buffet. Conveniently located to the Allianz Stadium and great eateries nearby. We will definitely be back!

My family (2 ad, 2 kids) stayed overnight to be close to the SCG. We had to get 2 rooms, one with a king and the other with a queen bed. We didn't really spend any time in the room. The king room was big enough and had a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom was VERY small! The...

Hi mharborne, Thanks for your review! We have a lot of guests that stay with us for events at the SCG and Allianz stadium due to the close proximate that you would have found it to be. Regarding the parking, I totally agree! Our car park is subject to availability and due to the restrictive parking situation in the area...

A beautiful piece of history tucked away into the historical area of Woollahra. Close to a main street of cafes, restaurants, bars and retail stores. Near to bus routes. Neat, clean, tranquil with friendly staff and pet friendly. I have enjoyed my stay here.

We booked a Standard Plus room for a 5 night stay. Could not be faulted. The room was a good size and very well appointed. Breakfast was good, with a reasonable selection.

I was staying overnight in Sydney on business. I wanted something close to the city and Woollahra worked for me. The room I was offered was beyond tiny, so small it made my room at home when I was a 5 year old seem like a palace. There was no window in this tiny converted broom closet, if one ignored...

prof_skunk, As you would have found when booking with the Hughenden, we have six room types which range in price and size. Our lead in room, which we label as a "Cosy Room" is quite limited in space, but has all the facilities required by our many regular guests who frequent them, either passing through or traveling to Sydney for...
