As long as you are aware that areas of the hotel have peeling paint, thread bare carpet and the occasional mozzie, it's clean, basic, good value, great staff and amazing location. I'd stay again.

Love the location, the Harbour Bridge end of George St. An Irish pub, great food, the staff are terrific, the hotel's very old, being renovated bit by bit.
