Hotel 59: Good Hotel in Kings Cross Sydney

Stayed at small family run Hotel 59 for 2 weeks over New Year 2009/2010. On the edges of Kings Cross but near enough to CBD (central Sydney) to walk there and back but the bus and train connections are on the door step.
The owner, George, was a mine of information and gave us so much information about Sydney we did not need a guide book!!
Clean, bedding and towels changed daily and the price included a very good (and I mean very good) breakfast which was chosen from the menu in the small cafe underneath the hotel.
Very much recommended.

Well situated for local transport, shops and beautiful park and marina nearby.

Cottages on Mount View: Hunter Valley luxury cottage getaway!

Sometimes we all need an escape from the urban sanctuary! With the tedious business of everyday life it’s hard to believe that there’s anytime for anything else other then “to-do” lists, appointments, important phone calls, household chores, and work, work, work!

Sound familiar, well schedule you’re next weekend to relax! There’s a place that exists in Hunter Valley that truly embodies rejuvenating your mind, body and soul. Visit Cottages on Mount View to re-connect with nature, the human spirit, and the best that the valley produces.

Your hosts Brian and Delia Metcalfe, make you instantly feel like part of the family with some good ol’ country charm & hospitality! Jill & I were flabbergasted by the views and quite possibly a bit high from the clean mountain air. There was a certain serene feel to Cottages at Mount View and almost instantly we noticed our shoulders were the most relaxed then they had been since stepping foot on Australian soil.

Delia showed us to our deluxe 2 bedroom mountain view cottage complete with a fireplace, woodpile, barbeque, hammock, breakfast basket, bottle of wine, hot tub! Delia also had a very detailed itinerary planned for us virtually taking any brain work out of the equation, and a plethora of places to go in the surrounding area that might be of interest.

Before we had a chance to unpack Jill and I were whisked away on our “Trio of Cellar Doors” tour which included: cheese, chocolate, and olive sampling as well as seemingly bottomless glasses of all your favorite wines! Full day and half day tours, as well as exclusive tours are all available to the wine enthusiast. Brian is a fully licensed tour operator and I dare anyone to challenge his knowledge of the history of Hunter Valley, the best places to frequent, and of course the Cellar Doors!

After a somewhat tipsy trip back up the mountain Jill and I saw our first wallabies! Being no Steve Irwin we decided we were ready to max and relax and make ourselves at home in the hot tub with a glass of local wine and a toast to the future. Jill and I had an inspirational evening chock full of an appreciation for life, and new fond memories of what’s become one of our favorite places in Australia.

Sadly Jill & I were only able to stay one night, but had we stayed longer there are plenty of other activities to check out such as: helicopter tours, boutique shopping, fine dining, golf, gardens and galleries! All VERY affordable!

As put plain and simple by the Metcalfes they have, “Everything you need, and nothing you don’t!” So check them out at http://www.cottagesonmountview.com.au and book yourself into one of the best places the Hunter Valley has to offer!

Tell Brian and Delia we say hi!

a great hot tub on your front patio with a beautiful mountain view and rotating coloured lights in the hot tub!!

Victor Lodge: Food delicious, travel happiness

The facility is simple and the room is little, but never mind. We didn't stay in room daytime and here is quiet at night. It's enough.

Good breakfast, fine kitchen we can use and comfortable dinning room are most important for travelers. You can see photos here.

Cheap Hotels: Cheap Hotels

Well, this is not actually the hotel. It's the web site where you can find some cheap hotel deals. Pretty interesting if you are short on money. Tons of hotels to chose from, with wide range of prices and reviews. The hotel where I stayed was OK. Great Southern Hotel in China town. The good thing about this site is that you can read reviews from visitors who visited that hotel (and who weren't lazy to write a review).

Cheap, good service (if you don't ask for too much)
This applies to the hotels I stayed in.
Web site "service" is good. Easy navigation and comprehensive steps to book your hotel.

Backpackers: Wake up Hostel in Sydney

I didn't sleep here as it was full when I tried but seemed to me a good option for a backpackers stay. It is quite well located, by the central railway station and the places seemed cool.

Sails in the desert in Uluru

This is the top end luxury hotel in Uluru. Didn't sleep there (pretty out of my budget) but spent a lovely morning in the swimming pool, reading and enjoying the picnic stuff I had previously bought at the supermarket. If you can afford it go for it!

Backpackers: Outback Pioneer in Uluru

Outback Pioneer is one of the 5 hotels located in the VOYAGES resort complex in Uluru. If you sleep in Uluru you MUST sleep in the complex, as there is literally NOTHING else around. But you can choose the hotel according to your budget.
The cheapest is the Campground, but you have to take your own tent.
So if you don't have tent, the next cheapest is the Outback Pioneer, where there are singles and doubles, but there are dormitories too and the beds are quite available for Uluru standards (34$ per night).
Sleeping there you can share the installations of the other hotels, but the Pioneer itself has a nice swimming pool, souvenir shop, BBQ restaurant, burger, and buffet restaurant.
There is a free shuttle connecting the 5 hotels.

Backpackers: Sydney Railway Sq. YHA

This Youth Hostel is centrally located, by the Railway Station (easy to access from the airport) and overall a good option to stay.
There is a small swimming pool by the front patio. They offer cheap meals too (about 5$).
Proce: 34$ for a dormitory bed.

There are normal rooms but there are a few that are located in old train carriages (see pic). Inside the room is like a normal dormitory but it's somehow a different way to sleep, specially if you are fond of trains.

Backpackers: Dougie's (Port Douglas)

I stayed 4 nights in this "tropical" backpackers resort, a great basecamp for daytrips to the Daintree and Cape Trib and the Great Barrier.
Dougies has a lively (sometimes too lively) bar at nights, a lovey garden with hammocks and a swimming pool, and a camping area.
I stayed at a dormitory of 6 (26$ the night) and slept really well, no noises (in spite of the night partys). The staff was really helpful and helped me plan my trips around. The toilets & showers were nice & clean and I was really satisfied of staying there.

The only contra is the location, a bit too far from the centre (about 15 minutes walking).

Seachange Apartments: Cairns Condos

Fantastic spot across the street in Trinity Beach, Australia.

Service was great and the units are phenomenal. They offered great tips to us on where to go and which tour to take snorkeling on the reef.

Pool was great, clean and well taken care of.

Good view of the beach and ocean and within walking distance of the restaurants.

Good parking for our rental car as well as a huge balcony for meals, relaxing and reading.

Cradle Mountain lodge: Cradle Mountains best lodge

The separate lodges are very comfortable and kept warm.
They have an entry to take off muddy or wet outer clothing before entering into the main rooms.
All meals are served in the main lodge--no cooking in rooms.
Each lodge has its own car parking space.

The lodge has its own walking tracks along bubbling creeks which adds to the atmosphere.
A transit coach will take you to Dove Lake.
The breakfasts and dinners at the lodge are excellent and they will cater for any special needs.
The fire places are kept going so when you enter the main lodge you are greeted with this warmth after a cold day out,sitting around the fire with a drink and chatting to other people is a part of the lodges character.
