Two days in Sydney

Posted 28-May-2014
Pros: location
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.

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.

Nice room, hard to check in.

Posted 31-Mar-2014
No complaints about the facilities. However, when I arrived to check in the hotel was locked up, no one answered the door and when I phoned the hotel nobody picked up the phone. If it wasn't for another guest who already had a key who came back and let me in, I would have been locked out.

Excellent location.

Stairs are a little bit of a negative and size of rooms are a little small however the location and staff make up for that.

Harbour Rocks Sydney last week

Posted 23-Feb-2014
Pros: The location - walking distance to lots of great attractions and places.
Cons: Lighting and room layout. Add proper curtains to window. Bigger, better appointed bathroom. Lower prices for what you get.
V disappointing. I was charged a high rate. The room was pokey, right on the street. Without proper curtains. The bathroom was tiny - could hardly move in it. The TV had v few working channels - most came up with Foxtel messages to upgrade the TV subscription. I had been precharged when I had specified to pay on the day via Expedia.

Amazing service!

Posted 27-Jan-2014 on Hotels.com
From the moment I walked through the doors, the service was impeccable! They checked me in early. The room and the surroundings are to a very high standard. You are in the heart of Sydney with a great market at the bottom of the street if you stay on a weekend. It is a quaint boutique hotel that I will definitely stay in again! The staff really add that extra touch to a lovely hotel.
