Very very disappointing. Stayed for business and hotel is well positioned. Rooms are old and very tired and I got bites all over my legs..... Wifi was hopeless it was very slow. The furniture and decor is very tired and the smell was stale. Housekeeping did a very average job

Hi simoncL1157WK, Thank you kindly for staying with us and I am very disappointed to hear your stay with us was not altogether favourable. Our hotel is well positioned and apart of the aura of this area. We are a heritage listed building and our furnishings embrace The Rocks of a bygone era. While the furnishings may seem outdated, they...

Our room overlooked the Opera House and the Bridge, it was spotlessly clean, it was very quiet, air con didn't interfere with sleep. the staff were genuninely interested in our day. The laundry was a big hit for us to wash clothes ready for next part of our holiday. A special mention to Vanessa, whose cheery smile welcomed you home...

Stayed here for 1 night before our 9 day cruise to New Caledonia. It's in a great position but isn't easily recognisable from the outside. Rooms are nice. With a balcony. We got woken up early the day of our departure with a false fire alarm which was bit annoying. But that can't be helped. Staff are friendly enough. It's...

We thought we had chosen a very good hotel, when we booked. It's location is very good with easy access to the Circular Quay and Sydney Opera House Booking in after an overnight flight showed no empathy and the man was somewhat curt, almost unpleasant, unable to let us book in early, despite our forewarning them and unable to give...

I am late with my review. Last March I visited Australia for the first time and stayed at this hotel in Sydney. My room was huge and had all the comforts of home. And the location in The Rocks was perfect. I could walk everywhere—the Opera House, Circular Quay, Cadman’s Cottage, Susannah Place, etc. The staff was very professional and...

We paid a hefty premium for a harbour view but found this completely impeded by cruise ships for most of our stay. We also noted the hotel had rooms with balconies,would have been nice to know this. Air con in the room hardly worked and the pool was disgustingly dirty and small. Other than that the hotel was fine. The...

Right in the heart of The Rocks. Walking distance to everything. Great history in this area and close to good pubs and restaurants. Close to easy public transport too. Staff are friendly and helpful, but the rooms are very dated and need renovations, but depends how long you spend in your room!

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
