Simpson's is a comfortable guesthouse, with spacious guestrooms, interesting artworks and an excellent breakfast room. It is within walking distance of Kingscross, Woolloomooloo, and botanical gardens. Good bars and restaurants within walking distance.

Well positioned, characterful and comfortable boutique hotel in Sydney. This hotel felt like a gracious old home. Our room was large and pleasantly decorated; the continental breakfast generous and tasty. Positioned in vibrant Potts Point, the hotel is within walking distance of the central city. I would happily stay here again.

We spent four nights at Simpsons after a 33 day cruise around Australia and New Zealand. Prior to the cruise we had spent one night in the CBD with the hustle & bustle of the city but we enjoyed the peace and quiet of Potts Point so much more. We set off on our first day with a map and...

Thank you Ranscian ! We are pleased that you enjoyed the relatively peaceful environment of "Simpsons" and Potts Point, in comparison to the CBD. As Conde Nast said of us some years ago, "Simpsons" is the place to stay "when you want to be in the city, but don't want to stay in the City" ! We are blessed, in...

Our room was located on the first floor in the front of the house (off the main street). We couldn't hear anything from the street- granted the street is a quiet street. The room was very spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a nice continental breakfast every morning for us to enjoy. The location...

We stayed here for four nights. It isn't in the CBD, but the beautiful quiet neighborhood makes up for having to do some lovely walking. We loved walking from the Simpson through the Botanical Garden. We also found the subway very convenient to get anywhere in Sydney we needed to go. It isn't a "modern, luxury hotel" but it is...

We started our holiday in Australia with three nights in Sydney and chose to stay at Simpsons as we did not want a 'chain'. This B&B is in a colonial part of the city and within walking distance of the opera house and bridge. The owner, Keith is very welcoming and is very helpful. We wanted a quaint place to...

I stayed here both before and after my cruise to New Zealand. I had two beautiful comfortable suites with very comfortable beds. The breakfast was excellent with great coffee. Thank you Damien and Ree. The area was full of small restaurants and many shops. It was within easy access of downtown Sydney on the #311 bus.

Four years later, we were in the Cloud Room again and it was just as magical as before. This time, we enjoyed two stays, two days in January and 6 days in February. Our room was large, comfortable and relaxing, with crisp bed linen, loads of bathroom toiletries, fluffy towels and robes, and very well maintained by the room service...

We spent a total of eight nights here in the fabulous 'Cloud Room' during a recent two month trip to OZ. When you fly into Sydney and just want to regroup before continuing your travels - then Simpsons is the place to unwind and relax.
