    We are a mature aged couple. My husband had never stayed at a luxury hotel. We were both blown away by the luxury of your hotel. Upgrading our room to the 25th floor reduced me to tears, seeing the beautiful Bridge, Opera House, etc. The view from the roof was stunning. Breakfast was fabulous. I am still raving about our experience. Thank you so much Lucy and Sam Fleming.

    All perfect

    There was nothing really that i liked about the Intercontinental.

    The staff were rude and didnt know what they were doing. I asked to speak to the manager about an incorrect charge. The manager couldnt be bothered to come out and see me so he just gave his usless answer back to the front desk. Will never stay here again.
