I like to hang out in Sydney's inner and Eastern suburbs discovering the newest/best restaurants & cafes. Also enjoy getting to Melbourne occassionally to check out their dining scene. Good produce, great cooking and efficient service a must for any dining establishment.

This was my second time at the Hyatt and both times I've had the same problem. Noise. I was there recently on a hot night and when I turned the air conditioning off in my room all I could hear was ambient noise coming through the wall from another room - I suspect it was either their air conditioning or similar. It was impossible to sleep but given it was 11 pm at night I couldn't be bothered calling reception to move. Ear plugs weren't enough to solve the problem either. This is the second time I've had the same problem at this work-prefered hotel. I complained to reception the next morning and they took off the small cost of mini-bar which was a nice gesture - but in essence I suspect these problems are not an easy fix, thus will never stay at this Hyatt again.
I take my car here all the time for a wash I think it changed hands recently and some previous reviewers don't look happy but I've always always found them very service orientated and the do a good job. You can also hang at their cafe which serves on ok coffee and cake.
I'm always particular about my car so I always check it before driving off and if the guys have missed anything they're always happy to quickly address it without fuss. I recommend this place.
We booked at Pool Suite and it was stunning ? on 2nd floor overlooking the large pool. The suite design is spacious (used to be two rooms years back) and beautifully appointed. I?m not a fan of having exposed bathrooms in the bedroom but it worked ok as the shower and toilet are separate, with the basins, walk-through wardrobe, two basins and large bath an extension of the bedroom. The suit has two tv?s, a smaller one in the bedroom and larger in the living space. The living space has a lounge area as well as small round dining table, chairs and small fridge. Both rooms have large sliding doors and outdoor furniture with electric awnings to protect you from the sun. The bed is four-poster and whilst it looks very luxurious I found it too soft and whilst not impossible to sleep on I did experience a stiff back each morning. In terms of room quality this suite is top notch and compares favorably with other rooms and suites we?ve experienced at five star resorts around the world.
We were lucky enough to arrive the day prior to Aquazure opening, Hayman?s new second pool and restaurant. It?s located towards the other end of the property just outside the Lagoon Rooms. It?s just beautiful with an infinity pool, large day beds and lounges and a very cool restaurant. It?s promoted as the ideal location for families and kids but to be honest I was wishing it was kid free.
The original pool at Hayman is still spectacular ? and I?d highly recommend if your budget permits opting for a suite overlooking it. Even better, get one on the 1st floor so you can walk out the front straight into the pool.
We had a great long weekend at Hayman even though a couple of the restaurants are average for what you pay. Recommended.
