    Very good

    I like the style of the apartments and the building design

    Noisy with the windows open. My partner does not like airconditioning. Water at $14 a bottle ridiculous

    Very good

    The room style is beautiful, the location from the city is a short walk

    The toilet wasnt clean when I checked in, in fact, it wasnt not only not clean but it was 'dirty' on the outside of the bowl. Each time I stay at this hotel, I never ever get a sea view, so dont think you are getting a sea view, even though its on a pier. Very disappointing.

    We loved the whole look and design of Blue A Taj Hotel. The whole stay was luxurious and I really couldnt complain about anything. The staff were excellent, helpful and made us feel very well looked after. I used the Day Spa and was very impressed with their service too. Thankyou to everyone who made our stay in Sydney truely wonderful.

    We liked the unique design.The location was great,close to the city and lots of good restuarants and of course being on the water is always a bonus.It was also suprisingly quite considering it was close to tunnel freeway.

    the staff were attentive, the rooms comfortable and the location was great, close to the cbd

    I think it should have been pointed out on Booked.net that the payment for the motel was to be paid when you checked out. I was under the impression that it was paid for when the booking was made

    Good

    The quirky use of an old wharf building and location

    We felt the emphasis was on business rather than leisure travellers. Breakfasts were a big dissappoinment - recently started buffet style but just hadn't got it right. Restaurant staff were delightful but needed more direction from experienced management.

    Fabulous

    I liked the quietness even though the “city” is within walking distance. The hotel is located very close to the botanic garden which is excellent for a morning run.

    The prices of the different services, i.e. Internet, laundry, valet parking.

    Helpful, friendly enthusiastic staff, Decor and view, style, room size, food

    Internet overly expensive - it is mandatory for most and I was missing a cable so had to pay twice for iphone connection and computer.

    Great location. Breathtaking facility and design (if you like architecture). All in all, a special experience. I like the few Indian touches that Taj brought to the Blue. The staff was extra helpful in everything.

    Fabulous

    Excellent position on Sydney harbour with a large choice of restaurants within the same building. Upgrade appreciated. Nice bar on Friday PM.

    Internet charges in a 4* hotel, particularly when signal is weak and connection is slow. Maybe better close to reception.
