We stayed at this boutique hotel on Sunday night. Our room (108) was modern, clean, quiet and large, so much so that that the furniture looked sparse. The view from our room balcony was excellent and you could not wish for better. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were especially hard. The room was opposite the laundry and there...

We dropped into the Watson's Bay Hotel mid-afternoon to find there were still places available for a late lunch. We had a lovely table looking down Sydney Harbour towards the city skyscrapers. The barman was friendly and helpful and we quickly had our delicious lunch and cool drinks on the table. While a DJ was playing in the Beach Club...

Lovely local/tourist spot in Watsons Bay.....great views of the Harbor and a DJ was spinning on Sat. The hot chips are a myst. We weathered a thunderstorm but the atmosphere never died down. Enjoy the drinks, food and sights. You can catch a ferry to the city as well.

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is riding PURELY on the back of its location. My story is too long and convoluted to place on here. However it ends with staff messing up our booking, a staff member telling my wife that she never made a booking and even though my wife produced a booking reference number she then tells my wife...

We wanted to book in the CBD but harbour view rooms were prohibitively expensive. We decided to look for somewhere close to a ferry stop and his place is right at the end of the Watsons Bay wharf - a 20 minute ferry ride to the CBD. We chose a room with a view over the harbour and were not...

Beautiful venue, food is self-order (we were in a group of about 20, had booked well in advance and had a tab behind the bar so ordered in one bulk). Everything came at completely different times, from first til last there was a 45 minute interval. It wasn't even remotely busy in the restaurant as it was a Friday early...

Nice location and good solid food. Only the service sucks by showing the absolute no care factor. It is one of those places where the guests seems to be the least important factor and the best thing that works is the till.
