Quiet, spacious and tastefully appointed; well priced with a continental breakfast (that has more than just croissant and coffee) and pleasant unobtrusive staff. Get a bit out of the city, it's worth it! Located near the thriving restaurant and shopping scene and a short walk to Kings Cross makes this Hotel hard to beat. Air con, refrigerator and most amenities...

From the moment you walk into Simpsons, you feel special. The decor is elegant and tasteful, yet warm and welcoming. As are the staff - friendly and knowledgable, but never intrusive. The location is wonderful - you're a short stroll from all the cool cafes, arty shops and fine restaurants around Potts Point. You're also an easy walk to the...

This is the second time I have stayed at Simpsons in the last 6 months. It is a great location in a quiet residential street with heaps of restaurants within a short walk. The waterfront is close by and it is an easy 20 minute walk to to the city. A beautiful heritage building provides you with a very pleasant...

We went to Sydney for two nights to go to the Art Gallery. I searched for accommodation in walking distance and this option came up. It is a boutique hotel in a surprisingly quiet street. The rooms are comfortable and attractive. The team running it are friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast is excellent. We will stay there again for...

Stayed for 4 nights in november '16. The hotels location was good, with lots of restaurants and shops nearby, large grocery store / supermarket (Woolworths) just around the corner. About 15min walk to the royal botanical gardens and a few minutes more to the opera house / circular quay. The hotel was situated in an idyllic old australian heritage site...

Very much the location and the place to stay, I thought, in Sydney. Close to the city and park, but set back and private. We have stayed in the main house as well as in the smallish rooms/apartments off to the side of the main location. I was disappointed that we would be staying away from the main location, but...

This is just the best place to stay if you are visiting sydney. Located in Potts Pony, away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, within walking distance to Restaurants, Art Gallery, Botanical Gardens, and if you are up to it, a 20 minute walk to David Jones! Lovely charming old world ambiance, with very comfortable rooms and beds. Good...
