A very funky hotel

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Pros: The décor and staff
Cons: Not a thing!
Location: The hotel is situated right in the heart of the Rocks (opposite the Clock Tower building). The Rocks markets are but a few feet away.
My husband and I chose this hotel for its location not really knowing too much about it. The hotel is very cool - a combination of old world charm and very trendy décor. Our room (# 120) was light and spacious despite the dark décor - bathroom a little small but very clean. The hotel is small but as mentioned tastefully decorated - if you're after boutique style accommodation then this is the place to stay. The staff are so warm and inviting and we'd like to make special thanks to Paul the On-site Manager who went out of his way to ensure our stay was memorable. Breakfast was included in our package and we could order anything off the a la carte menu which was delicious. The menu prices were also very reasonable which surprised us given the venue. There is a lovely little private courtyard you can have a few drinks on with comfortable lounges and heaters. We will definitely return to the hotel again without a doubt.

Small room, but clean and well maintained. Great location. Free wifi. staff was very helpful and kind. Had a very small gym with three pieces of cardio equipment, but one was broken.

My husband and I were only in Sydney for two days. This was the perfect hotel! Quaint hotel, wonderful staff, perfect location - we walked everywhere - Opera House, botanical garden, harbor, weekend market, great restaurants and cafes, etc.

Great location,but...

Posted 06-May-2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: Sound proofing in street level rooms, and website photos to give realistic representation of what you will get for your money.
Location: The Rocks area is full of historical sites, great restaurants, and close walking distance to Circular quay.
Great location in the heart of the Rocks. Booked Superior Heritage room but it was located on ground floor at street level and a lot of street noise at night prevented a good nights sleep. Hotel website photos of Superior Heritage room did not match the room we paid for! Management maintain it was a Superior Heritage room. If so, photos are very misleading.

Tiny Bathroom

Posted 30-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
The en suite was the smallest I have ever come across; the staff informed me that due to the old building the original en suites could not be altered. For a superior room it was very small. Breakfast was ordered for our first morning; we arrived at 9.30 and there were no tables. When we were seated 10 minutes later we immediately ordered our cooked breakfast. These took over 30 minutes to arrive which is unacceptable. Apparently only 1 chef was on duty that morning.

Hi Stephen, thank you very much for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I'm really sorry that we did not live up to expectations. It was very dissapointing for me to read that your breakfast order was delayed. I can appreciate that this would have taken away from the overall comfort and enjoyment of your stay.

Wonderful location, comfortable room, great service. We thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant, Scarlett, at which we had lunch on our first day and dinner on our second day - the quality of the food was excellent. We we plan to return to the Harbour Rocks hotel n our next visit to Sydney!

Stylish hotel in excellent location

Posted 07-Apr-2014
Pros: Style, location, room cleanliness and comfort.
Cons: Service in the restaurant (dinner and breakfast) was ok, not great.
Location: Best possible location for tourists in Sydney, close to Circular Quay (public transport hub), Bridge, Opera House, Museum of Contemporary Art and CBD.
Great to walk into - historic building restored in interesting contemporary style. Efficient check-in and check-out. Fresh bright room with partial views of nearby Harbour Bridge and Opera House, comfortable firm bed and excellent shower. Great location behind Museum of Contemporary Art and close to public transport and sights. A good restaurant.
