                          The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the lcoation was superb. There were 3 adults in our 'party' and the room was very comfortable.

                          High standard of room, beds and facilities

                          Breakfast and dining area (in extended foyer) too dark - needs more dayligh or better re-location so that there is a view.

                          The most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in - perfect matress, perfect pillows. Exceptional service from all staff. Immaculate presentation. Very peaceful and quiet rooms. Great selection of good restaurants nearby.

                          Reception staff were wonderful...especially when we arrived & our booking with Booked.net had not gone through & there were no more rooms left that we paid for. We were no way made to feel that it was our fault & an upgraded room was provided to us at no extra cost!

                          The staff is the bar area were rude.

                          Excellent location, friendly staff, well designed rooms.

                          No resdients lounge - soulless atmosphere in the old wharf building. Outrageous prices for breakfast.

                          The building has been remodelled into a very funky and interesting design with ccomfortable rooms a great central Bar area with a very cool vibe. The restuarants onsite are excellent and the staff were very helpful in organising a car and restuarant bookings. I also loved the great swimming pool and fitness centre

                          Rooms are big and very comfortable. And the setting is just marvelous within the Woooloomoolloo wharf. Staff very friendly. Surrounded by very good restaurants (try the China Doll). Taxis just in fornt of teh Hotel, also at 07.00am. Ideally located for an early morning or late afternoon run along the waterfront with nice views on Sydney bridge and Opera house.

                          Restaurant and bar were a bit too cold of temperature (winter time). Room was located on the road side which made it a bit noisy.

                          I really liked the service (the staff were excellent) and the availability of very good resaurants connected to the Hotel. My idea was to give my wife a bit of luxuary which we have never been aforded ouselves before, this was easily achieved at the Blue A Taj Hotel. The Hotel is only a short walk to the city which was good. We liked the heated pool and spa facilities although they are somewht distant from the rooms, having said that we really liked the hotel in the old Finger Warf setting so appreciate that the hotel had to be fitted into the old building and the limitations of the building needed to be considered. In short we loved it.

                          We did have a little difficulty getting to the Hotel. We had looked up the location but being from out of town found it difficult to find the correct way to approach the hotel by car. Getting out and away was a much easier excersise. Prehaps some tips for drivers on access routes on the web page would be a good idea?

                          The location of the Hotel was the best part of our stay and the excellent house keeping - having everything clean and tidy when you returned to your room. The room was tastfully furnished. Staff were friendly.

                          Noise level from the downstairs bar.... Drove us absolutley mad!, We were looking forward to a peacful room at the end of the day but had to put up with a night club going on downstairs. Really disapointing!

                          The staff were all very helpful, rooms clean and bed comfortable. What more can one ask!

                          Something to take note of: As the hotel is in a old wool warehouse, it is quite open and sound carries from the 2nd floor bar. We were not affected as we were in a room not directly leading off the open area, however I can imagine it being a problem in some of the rooms.

                          Unfortunately I have no positive comments to add as it was all negative

                          Where do I start - Late check in, Far too expensive for what was provoded, Room service very expensive, Mini Bar out of this world expensive, kept awake all night with people in next room - even had a room service next door arrive late and the staff member delivering the meal knocked loudly on their door and called room service out loud. Had drinks with some friends at the bar and was blown away at the price of drinks at the bar. Take a good look at yourselves as you will certianly not be receiving any reccomendations from me - in actual fact my negativity will be shared amoungst my friends & family.

                          The quality of the hotel is outstanding. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and the beds are exceptionally comfortable. The building is a large converted warehouse by the water and is unusual and impressive. The staff are friendly and keen to help. The buffet continental breakfast is good value as it includes everything on offer except the cooked items. The quiet location is beautiful and only a 15 minute walk through the Botanical Gardens to the Opera House. There are good restaurants in the building. I would recommend this hotel for luxury and comfort away from the busy city centre.
