good value

We stayed at Hides Hotel twice our recent trip. Nice simple breakfast included in the stay - quality choice of breads, cereal, boiled eggs, cup noodles, tea/coffee and juice. There is an old section and a new section of the building. We stayed in both. In the old section, our room was directly above the pub and we were woken by the noise on a couple of nights until we worked out to close the bathroom door as well as all the windows. Otherwise, quite a good location - close to everything.

Helpful value

Warm welcome to a traditional pub with big verandah sand a good continental breakfast including pot noodles, boiled eggs and Milo, as well as the usual basics: but no fruit. Room problems - non functioning TV and noise frown the big verandahs in my heritage room were quickly sorted by the desk staff, as well as reconfirming tour pickup. It's a big rabbit warren of a pub, centrally situated and a short walk to rail station and waterfront boardwalk. Would be very happy to stay there again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Really welcoming Greek restaurant directly behind the pub in Stratton St: Fetta's Taverna. Was greeted like family: bloody good reef trout too.

Booked a Heritage Ensuite for 2 nights and got upgraded to Superior Ensuite! Nice aircon, TV, clean room. Great location - just 10-15 mins walk to Esplanade; Woolworth just opposite the street, many eateries around. Best of all, nice breakfast at veranda included! Overall, a great stay.

Look elsewhere

The room was fairly good, the sheets were rather old with small holes in and well worn not really sure that they ha actually been changed didn't have that clean feel about them. Servicing of rooms entailed changing the towels only. Duty staff informed me that it is now hotel policy not to make beds during your stay. Off street parking was bonus though not secure as the gateway on the side street was always open.

Good location

Second overnight stay in just under two weeks and in different location of hotel consequently an extremely disturbed night with little sleep due to very noisy patrons below. Much smaller room than before. Not sure how well bathroom cleaned as soap holder caked with soap and a "different" towel over shower rail. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again if could be guaranteed of a quieter room location.
