                        I had stayed at a hostel near the Devere hotel when I first came to Sydney - the hostel's room was run down and shoddy, the hostel was noisy as people played drinking games into the wee hours, and the bathroom facilities were shared. Devere hotel was only $9 more per night and it was very modern, comfortable, with en suite accommodation to boot. I would definitely recommend this hotel for budget travellers wishing to get quite a bit more for their money than the standard backpacker accommodation.

                        This is our second stay at the Devere and found the staff pleasant to deal with.The position is great with the bus stop outside,we also walked into the city from the hotel.

                        Helpful staff. Comfy and clean bed and bedding.

                        Shabby room fittings - chips out of paint on cupboards and ledges. Dirty bathroom windows.

                        The hotel was close to relatives we were visiting.

                        Having to carry heavy cases to our room. The blanket on the bed was not clean.The TV was not in good working order No digital and very snowy.

                        Good value for money

                        The lift is very slow and the carpets need some good cleaning

                        a regular guest of this hotel, good location with nearby amentiies open late hours.

                        reported to the general manager of this particular room that I was given, it was an upgraded from a double to a one with a balcony but the double is far more superior. The blanket was dirty stuck with hair which is not uncommon with this hotel. When I inform the night staff on duty that night I was told I complained a lot and that if the standard of the hotel does not match with my expectation I should go somewhere else. Nice going!

                        Your cleaning staff did an excellent job, maintaing our room.

                        1.Lighting in the room was dim. Awkward to read. 2. The matress was too stiff for me. My preference would have been for a matress with a medium stiffness

                        The hotel is centrally placed in Potts Point with very good access to essential services. It is also very close to my friends' apartmentPotts Point is a vibrant lively place to holiday.

                        I need a firmer mattress.I found that this was not the case in my room.

                        We didn't care for it. It had many stairs and an unpleasant odor. The room was very small - not much room for luggage. The beds were not comfortable and it appears to not have been updated since the 1970's. While clean, it would only be suited for extreme budget travelers.

                        Excellent location, very clean rooms, rates are very good for the hotel category.

                        The furniture was a little bit old but very clean and well manteined.

                        Good value accommodation for a Saturday night. Clean an comfortable bed.

                        No mini-bar. Poor digital tv reception. Breakfast was nearly gone and Luke warm at 9am on Sunday morning. Also loud water hammer noise in the ensuite.

                        My opinion and complaint I described in a letter sent to your company.

                        This hotel has a bad reputation.
