Arrived in Sydney to a fantastic hotel room with a view

Following a change of plans, we arrived in Sydney ahead of schedule and managed to get a really good deal at the Shangri La Hotel on Cumberland Street in Sydney, around from the famous “Rocks” area. We were quite surprised we actually got accommodation at this time of year and what a view! The hotel is well situated near Circular Quay to get around, the staff could not be more helpful and the Altitude restaurant and bar has fantastic views but having said that there is nowhere really nice to lounge around and have coffee as the lounge area and cafe are a bit dark and unwelcoming. However for rooms with a view they are hard to beat. The picture was taken as the sun finally decided to show, Shangri La Hotel Sydney-Room View

 Very near to the Shangri La hotel there are the  Quay West Apartments and the Four Seasons Hotel which would also have a fantastic  view so if you are looking for a luxury room with a view I  would check  those out as well.

The rain has followed us though, but on a good note of course we won the Ashes today and pretty convincingly too. It’s great to be here when we actually win and give the Aussies a ribbing.
