I've stayed in wonderful hotels, all over the world. Finally after 20 years, Australia catches up with stylish, hip hotels of the pedigree one finds in the uk and Europe.
Loved everything about this venue; 3 nights in a superior king room with fabulous arty details, a make your own espresso martini kit, fabulous bathroom and shower, loved the robes toiletries, free in room wifi and movies.
Parlour lane coffee bar is great, Gowings restaurant serves brilliant cooked to order breakfast and the spa is spectacular.... I could go on and on.
Location is 5 mins from st James train station, over the road from queen VIC luxury shopping and darling Harbour also close.
Want a weekend away in stylish surrounds with a special someone....? Book it and don't have any regrets. I loved the staff's enthusiasm, the style (finally a place in Australia where people dress respectfully and stylishly with pride.... Not a single thing wearing vibrant singlet toting bogan in sight....).
There are brilliant touches, such as the life sending how many of you are inside it's playing songs appropriate to the number..., it's quirky, kitsch, custom made and absolutely an experience to savour.
Far too much fun to stay there on business, you'll be frustrated you can't linger longer and have fun in the room. More
