Wonderful Woolstore
Has a lovely night at the Woolstore! Very comfortable room and so nice to be able to take my Frenchie along for the holiday. Highly recommend...oh, and the lolly bar is such a cute extra touch. Love it all ❤

Exceptional stay in a gorgeous boutique hotel
After a cancelled flight and late night arrival, this tired and grumpy traveller was greeted with the most delightful service from Sam working the night shift. Upon seeing the room, my lightening spirit escalated into joy. If you love ingenious architectural interplay of heritage and modern, this hotel is a must. Even more sumptuous is the open space lobby/bar/dining area; intimate and just so cool. My departure the next day was as heart warming as my arrival, with Sam organizing my last minute shower in a lovely bathroom (having checked out much earlier). I couldn't recommend this hotel enough.

A different vibe to this Hotel, and it was great! Very friendly, efficient front desk staff. Excellent laundry for the use of patrons free of charge. All the extra touches and thoughtfully applied differences really did make our 6 night stay delightful. Thank you.

I love the funky atmosphere when you enter this beautiful hotel that has been restored from an old wool warehouse. The staff are very friendly and amenable willing to assist with any question. Although the restaurant has a limited menu for dinner it is quite a nice spot for breakfast. The room I had was smaller than expected but was quite comfortable for a long weekend in Sydney to see a couple of shows.
