Our Opinion”

Comfort, Location & clean

In general the stay was fine but not over the top. We are members of the Rydges Priority Guest Rewards and have stayed in a number of Rydges before in NSW and ACT and the service was always really good and friendly. Our opinion is that the Reception staff were very friendly and "Rydges" like, the service at the rooms was nice and friendly, as well as the staff and quality of the food at the Italian restaurant and Breakfast facilities. Parking was too expensive and not convenient. Service from Concierge was not there and could not assist us with a simple request and treated the request in a pedantic way, inclusive of mentioning that the hotel policy was of not doing that, while explained that in Canberra they have assisted us with the cable as well as in Cronulla and North Sydney Rydges. The hotel is nice and the service from some staff need to be reviewed, especially when dealing with clients that enjoy the way Rydges normally service us.

Excellent experience”

Quality room, good room size, great location

This was one of the better experiences I've had in awhile. Comfortable bed. Large room. Work-out facilities. Two minute walk to one of my favorite hamburger spots in Sydney (Chur), very short walk to Central Station, and within ten minutes walk of hundreds of restaurants and pubs from Surrey Hills to Central and only few minutes more of a stroll to Darling Harbour area. Front desk staff were great. Really pleasant and helpful. And the room rate I had was very good - unfortunately its Sydney and rates can fluctuate seemingly randomly from $120 to $520 from one night to the next. Excellent experience. Recommended.

Clean and well-maintained. Up to expectations.”

Wonderful swimming pool - nice and warm and very clean.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Very close to free Sydney CBD Shuttle Bus, which makes it a convenient place to stay without having to be in the bustle of downtown. Quiet area, close to Central Station. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast (which was included in our room rate) was exceptional quality, and was available until 10.30 a.m. which allowed a holiday sleep in. Check-out by 11 a.m. was also really appreciated. We definitely want to return.

Sebel Surrey Hills Review”

Great location and clean comfortable rooms

The Sebel was the base for our recent trip tom Sydney. It was the first time for both me and my girlfriend travelling to Sydney and the hotel was located a 2 minute walk from central station, which made it easy to do all the sightseeing we wanted. The rooms were clean and comfortable and there was no noise to complain about. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and would recommend the hotel to anyone travalling to Sydney.

Sebel Surry Hills Hotel - Sydney”

Spacious and comfortable newly decorated room at good price within short walking distance of Central station.
Could offer a cheaper option for breakfast.

The newly renovated hotel is ideally situated within one block of Central station making it very convenient for either a short train ride or the slightly cheaper bus ride from Sydney airport. Whilst not located at Sydney harbour it is only a 40 minute walk or short bus ride away, a free bus service being available upto 3:30 pm. The price was very reasonable for the standard of hotel and location and although the breakfast was expensive a discount was available for pre booked breakfasts. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and umbrellas are available at reception for wet weather.

Pool is bits dirty...

It's a great deal for staying central of Sydney. Room is in decent size & bed was big. Most enjoyable was "Happy Hour" in bar of hotel's. 5 to 7pm , all house drink , including house wine, sparkling wine, beers & sprite were all in 3 dollars. Dinning was convince too, Chinatown is just walking distance from hoetel. Sydney tourist attarctions are close by, could access by walking or taking train from central station.

Convenient hotel with large rooms”

Easy walking distance from Central Station. Very helpful staff.

We chose this hotel mainly for the location - a short walk from Central Station, and a longer but enjoyable walk from Sydney Cricket ground. The older part of the hotel, converted from a grand old Sydney building and lovingly restored, has large high ceilinged bedrooms with wonderfully comfortable beds. Service is excellent, but the dining room and bar have little ambiance. The hotel is proud to claim that it is the successor to the very famous (notorious?) Townhouse Hotel with its late night piano bar hosting famous names from the world of entertainment. Unfortunately the current bar feels more like a late night cafe at a railway station - not at all the same thing.

Good facility, good location”

The location is good, the facility is quite new

We arrived in the early morning in Sydney after a long trip. After arrive at the hotel, nothing surprised that the room is not ready and we can only check in at 2pm. The reception is very friendly and helply. We left our bags in the hotel and hang around in the city. The location is good and easily get access to China Town etc. by walk. After check-in, the room is quite big and the facility is pretty new. We like it. Overall, we are quite satified.

A lovely hotel”

This hotel had the most comfortable king 'cloud' beds. I enjoyed the spaciousness of the room. The added bonus was the indoor pool, spa and sauna to unwind after a long day of shopping and sightseeing. It is very conveniently located near central station and near the free 555 bus line.
I kept tripping over when getting out of the lift as one of the lifts seem to stop just before it reaches the floor level, leaving a little step gap between the elevator and the floor.

I got a fantastic rate for this hotel from Agoda. I searched many websites for a 3 night stay in Sydney, all had either the Saturday night booked out or at nearly double the one night rate. Agoda was the only one with rooms available at the normal rate for this hotel. We had no trouble getting to the hotel using the airport shuttle - only $12 from airport to hotel. The front looks quite unassuming, until you enter and realise the floor of the foyer is actually a giant fish tank. Checking in was a breeze, everything was all ready for us, the staff was friendly and explained all the facilities and services available clearly. Our room was quite large, nearly a suite. It had a king size bed, bedside tables, a sofa bed, coffee table, desk, bar fridge plus an extra single bed(This wasn't requested but someone thoughtfully added this to our room- we were going to use the sofa bed) plus all the usual furnishings. The beds were so comfortable, it was a pleasure to return to them each night after a hard day of walking, sightseeing and shopping! The location was fairly good, on a quiet street but not too far from George St, Central Station, free 555 bus stop... Darling Harbour, Chinatown and Paddy's Market are all within walking distance (if you walk in the right direction!) - unfortunately we managed to take a wrong turn the first day and it took us ages to retun to the hotel.

Recommended hotel in Sydney”

Good hotel, excellent location with a friendly service

During New Year Eve till New Year Day, Sebel Surry Hills Hotel provided us a good service, clean room, nice staffs in the best location in Sydney. I love the hotel style, so chic and feel very comfortable. These is a good memory for me and my family in the special holidays.
