Right from the time we parked the car till we were in the car leaving this hotel couldn't be faulted. It is a small more intimate hotel with an olde world charm, but where this is in a lot of cases code for run down that is not the case for the McLaren. The beds are wonderfully comfortable and everything... More

My partner and son and I stayed at the McLaren Hotel in mid April. We had two Deluxe rooms and they were beautiful. The King size beds were so comfortable and everything is high quality and elegant. The staff are lovely (thanks Owen!) and the cleaning staff are very kind. It's close to great restaurants and again the staff are... More

This boutique Hotel is character filled and comfortable and has a warm homely feel. The staff are very friendly and very helpful and exceeded all our expectations. The room was clean and a good size and the light meals were fresh and tasty. We enjoyed our stay, would highly recommend and will stay again.

Over many years we have stayed at major hotels in Sydney and have had little experience with hotels like this. We chose this as it was close to where we had to be for the weekend and were pleasantly surprised on arriving. We were met by Owen who was on the desk and what a delightfull Guy. He quickly showed...

My family and I stay here on Saturday night as we had a wedding at The Rocks. What a beautiful Hotel. We had 9 rooms and they were all large with very comfortable beds and you could have had a party in couple of the bathrooms. All the staff could not have been more helpful and so conveniently located only... More

I stayed here on business for two nights. I felt that this was a well located hotel, in a quiet position. The rooms offered space and the option to have a window open, without air conditioning (which is lovely in the Autumn and Spring), as well as a lovely ambience, comfortable beds and environment. It would be a real bonus... More

We did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and checked in. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room bright and airy. And, to our surprise, it was so quiet, even though we left our windows open. There was not traffic noise that you'd expect in a city. We heard birds signing in... More

My sister and I stayed two nights while in town to catch up with our Aunt who lived about 20mins bus trip away in Mosman. We had room 16 at the rear which was a deluxe room with a king split into two single beds for us. It was a lovely well furnished room with a small ensuite. The area... More

Almost reluctant to share this wonderful place, in case it becomes too popular! I love the position close enough to the city, old fashioned attention to detail where nothing is too much trouble. Coming from the country it is a huge bonus to find hassle free parking.

Stayed here on a work trip. Basic room, well situated for where I needed to be. Close to some restaurants and pubs so I could walk and get food. All in all did the job, relatively inexpensively, with little notice.
