A classical building in the heart of Sydney's south CBD just minutes walk from the Botanic Gardens and Circular Quay. Calm surroundings, a restaurant with wonderful views of the bridge and gardens. Some road and rail noise but overall a fantastic facility.

We stayed as reciprocal guests from the Victory Services Club in London (£100 a night in central London!), and moved rooms once as we left for a trip to Melbourne in the middle. The staff are extremely friendly, competent and helpful. The early 1900's decor is still attractive, although as one might imagine, certain facilities are very dated (note -... More

Restaurant and service at RACA was outstanding. Truly a world class establishment. My wife and I enjoyed the dinner and wine and also took part in playing the game of snooker. Very enjoyable. Can't wait to go back.

For a long time I was holding meetings in various locations but found the RACA club. The club is very central and next to circular quay rail station and also ferries and busses. Parking also within the club. Recently I have been holding business dinner with colleagues at the club and booking interstate colleagues into the accommodation. I find the... More

Have just spent three nights (mid August) here as members of a reiprocal English club. Friendly and efficient service, lovely deluxe room (street facing) with huge bed, sofa and armchairs, rollaway bed. Amazing double glazing as no road noise at all. Spectacular bridge views from dining room. Dated decor (1930s-60s) but charming. Very nice food in bar and reasonable prices.... More

Stayed as a reciprocal member here for a week, OK service and reception, nothing special but room was clean but very small. Staff varied from very good to average, I guess they had a lot of complaints during our stay as there were elevator breakdowns, a night fire alarm that went off forcing all tenants onto the street, and chronix...

My husband and I are members of one of their affiliates. We followed the protocol and provided all needed documentation way in advance so our full day of travel wouldn't be met with hiccups at the hotel. That was pointless because they couldn't find our info when we arrived anyway, due to their shoddy paper tracking methods. It would be... More

Although I think you have to be a guest of a member, my husband and I were lucky enough to be invited to share the top floor unit with our friend. This club is right on the Quay, steps away from where the ferry boats dock. From the dining room for breakfast each morning, you have a direct, unobstructed view... More

The RAC club is more than 100 years old and You can feel it. It tries its best but its glories are past. Lovely members bar, a fantastic view for breakfast, and from our room, but everything is chipped and tired, the cooked breakfast is extra and the sound insulation when You have a harbour view not exactly good.
