The doorman Davide was so professional and courteous - we had to change rooms and he was so helpful. Loved our stay here easy walk to opera house, art gallery and lovely restaurants on your doorstep. A big thank you also to the duty manager who was also very helpful. We will definitely be returning to this hotel again soon, loved our stay.

Very comfortable- this was a special treat for me after an event. I have stayed here once previously and was keen to come back. Lovely views, fantastic staff, great location. I just love the conversion of the warf, as it keeps all the character and features of the working warf's history. If you fany a splurg, stay a couple of nights, it's lovely. I had a standard room this time on the city side, but last time I was lucky enough to get a deluxe suite over two levels that was sublime.

A bit more expensive than my usual budget! Wish I could afford to stay here all the time!

the concept of a wharf and it location

accessibility to the pool was bad. It was far and we have to walk through the breakfast area.

staff were excellent from the moment we pulled up in our car. Check in was easy. Complimentary bottle of wine was unexpected but welcome. Facilities were magnificent and the stay was very enjoyable albeit breif.

The location. We used to have an apartment almost opposite and watched the Wharf being rennovated. It was very familiar to us.

When I thought I had left my keys behind in the room after I had left, I phoned Reception who put me through to an extension with a digitised voice. My call was never returned.

Everything, I felt like me and my son (7 years old) were vips of some sort (and my kid is not the eazy guest I should admit, but all staff looked after him very well and dealt with all his little dramas with exeptional grace). We were there for international fleet review and location for it was the best.

Can't stay longer

The staff were outstanding and very accommodating. Our room was ready early at our request with no extra charge and we were given access to it hours earlier. Great location to beautiful walks through the gardens to main attractions. Would definitely recommend to friends. (Was actually recommended to me by another friend.

The only thing that was not entirely to our liking was that the beds were extremely soft. This didn't both us too much as we were only there for two nights and is really a personal thing.

Great location, quiet rooms, views of the water if not the harbour. Well appointed. Good configuration on loft bed.

Could be hot upstairs and separate air conditioner (essential 'cos no open windows) was V. noisy. No problem in August but Summer may be another story.

I enjoyed the Woolloomooloo Location.................the walk thru the Domain.......it's closeness to Darlinghurst and Paddington and catching a Cab was fairly easy. The Restaurant strip, which we visited was excellent.

It was a very pleasant stay; hardly anything to complain about.

Breakfast really too expensive for what it is (30aud). Suggest skipping it.

The Taj is in a recently redone dock building that has nicely incorporated some of the old structure with a very modern building. We found the accommodations very satisfactory. It is near the opera house and botanical garden, not far from downtown and the ferry docks.

Bed was a bit soft for older travelers like us with stiff backs. If you need a really firm bed, check with them if they can accommodate before booking.

the staff were magic which makes the hotel. good bed and room facilities we couldn't fault.

no hangers for clothes in the bathroom and nowhere to hang wet towels. if you were a little infirm the step up to get into the bath for a shower would be a real problem.

Loved the bath. Loved that it was the equivalent of a twin single but it was twin double beds. Loved that my daughter got to try on a kid sized bathrobe and slippers. Loved that when we came back for coffee we could have it in the foyer which was also beautiful. Loved the design of all the rooms. Loved how close it was to the naval base.

Not a thing.

renovation of old wharf was well done, beds were very comfortable

a cafe would have been good, there was very few in the area. The breakfast was very expensive and awful, most cafe's do a decent Eggs Benedict, the hotel version was horrible.

A Hotel where you can relax and kick back, close to the city centre but far enough away to feel you are somewhere else. Rooms and room facilites are excellent

Breakfast is appalling, little choice and in the main cold by the time you get it back to your table. Could do also do with a lot more atmosphere.

Design, rooms, room service, staff

Bath tub was difficult to get in/out; also slippery; fortunately a staff member took the initiative to go out and purchase a bath mat for us because we complained and Blue had none available. A/C control did not work well so room was often too cold or too warm.

I am a regular client of the Blue at Wooloomooloo ....either on business or on week end trips to Sydney ...this time I booked the hotel for my brother and his wife and myself as it was their first time to Australia and Sydney ...and I thought it would be the best location to discover Sydney ..to walk to the best spots The Botanic Gardens the Arts Gallery the Opera House the Harbour the Rocks ...and the CBD for shopping and business !!! The rooms luxurious and services friendly ...the skyline views are top and the restaurants on the Wharf are world class ....

We liked the location. It was centrally located to all of the places we wished to visit/see. The studio suite offered much more room to relax in and we have never slept as well as we did on the comfortable bed along with the wonderful feather pillows and down comforter. It was quiet and all of the staff were very attentive.

We did have a bit of a problem with mildew in the bathroom shower area which we did address.

Loved every minute of our stay. The old converted woolen mills the hotel now occupies is beautiful and lovingly restored where the old mills meets the modern hotel located right over the water. Staff were excellent. We will be back!
