Hotel's Favourite
Everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel itself has a young, cool vibe. All of the happy, shiny staff could not have been more accommodating. They got us into our room shortly after we exited our cruise ship in Sydney, well before the usual entry time. The rooms were super spacious. Beds and sheeting were most comfortable. Throw in free drinks and other goodies and you have a great experience. There are numerous great restaurants on the wharf right by the hotel. Location is great too. Near the Botanical Gardens and art museum. Cannot recommend this brand enough.

This has to be the best experience I’ve had at any hotel I’ve ever stayed in, and that says a lot because I’ve stayed in so many. Firstly It’s super clean , neat and tidy and has such a fun and quirky charm about it that sets it apart from all the other hotels I’ve stayed in. Love the decor so much! all the other hotels I’ve stayed in tend to look the same and don’t have that special touch that this hotel has The view from my room was amazing and the location was perfect for me as it was close enough to the city but no noise . The staff were so warm and friendly it made you feel like you were staying with family and nothing was an inconvenience for them, this is great for me as I love to chat and the staff were always happy to have a chat and a laugh with me. The bedding is crazy comfortable I didn’t want to get out of bed in the morning. Great shower and bath too which is essential for me, I’m a clean freak and love my baths ! I also forgot my speaker but was so glad to see they had one already. Can’t wait to return!!!! This is definitely my go to hotel from now on , keep it up ovolo, will be back for sure .

It has so much going for it. The building is so cool and the location is amazing. So close to the city but at the same time so far that you can really feel like you are on a vacation and you can relax. The rooms are spacious and bright with great views and the atmosphere is really great. Only improvement I would suggest is for breakfast. The buffet was very average and the other options were weird. At breakfast, the service was not good. An easy fix. The rest was great and we will return.

Hi Bullie, We couldn't agree more that our awesome home, the iconic finger wharf has such an amazing personality on the foreshore of Sydney harbour and definitely allows for the close but far enough way feel as you experienced. thank you for sharing your thoughts on breakfast too, we are currently looking into our offerings and this will be refreshed very soon, watch this space. We look forward to seeing you back for some more R&R soon. regards Kieron

Great staff, brilliant location and funky room. From booking to exit it was a faultless experience. We had a stunning view and room was appointed with all the features to make it comfortable and lounge in whilst looking onto the wharf and precinct. Bonus was the AMAZING pillows.
