A Visit to Sydney

We stayed at the Rydges Jamison from 27th December to 2nd December 2005. After contemplating which hotel reservation sites to choose from (the choices were Orbitz, Priceline, and Expedia), we booked our stay through

For location in Sydney you can do no wrong. This is slap bang in the middle of the city. The Harbour Bridge is 10 minutes walk max, and around the cove to the Opera House is another 5 minutes.

The hotel itself was very nice. The entrance lobby is kept tidy and quite, and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.

You have to use your room key/card for the lift, which we had no problems with, but some people seemed to have trouble with this as their cards would not work.

We were on the 29th floor, and although we couldn't see the bridge or opera house, we had a view of harbour and we had no sound from the road below.

The bathroom was great with a large walk in shower and seperat deep bath. The room was complete with tv, hair dryer, iron, drinks (which weren't overly expensive) etc.

There is a food court just down the road (literally 20 paces) which was great for snacks, and there is a 24/7 store and a McDonalds (should you wish) just down the road.

The mattress on the bed was extremly comfy, but I felt the carpet looked a bit grubby. I booked an airport transfer through the hotel and they were there to greet us in a lovely new BMW 7 series which was great to slide into after the long flight.

If we ever go back to Sydney I would definatley stay here again, the location is perfect, and the value for money was also very good.

The island to the South of the main Australian continent. Tassie, as it is known to the locals, is a very pretty island. Steeped in convict history, in some places it is though time has stood still.
