Husband and I recently stayed four nights in a Deluxe Grand Harbour View Room to celebrate a special birthday in Sydney. The room was immaculate and view spectacular. We could see the bridge and Opera house and watch ferries in and out of Circula Quay. A lovely touch was the cake delivered for my birthday compliments of the hotel. We... More

Superb, awesome.... these are the words that I would like to use to describe our experience. We went for the 'Deluxe Grand Harbour View' as we wanted to enjoy the beautiful view. While a tad pricey, what we got was completely worth it. A breathtaking view of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. The room was classy and big... More

My husband and I, and another couple, stayed for two nights in August. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The views from your room and the bar are stunning. The location is great. It is located on a hill but anyone with normal mobility will not have a problem. We didn't eat at the hotel but there are numerous options close... More

Just the expressway But the rooms are nice & so far the food is good. Bed was a little soft for my liking Free slippers as well.. Breakfast was yummy but the view wasn't that great from the 1st floor location

We stayed here for valentines day and although we were on the lower floors we still had a view of the opera house which was nice. This is a classic Shangri la hotel with great service and in a great spot.

Splurge and get a harbour view. It is literally breathtaking!!! High end hotel, great location. Loved our 4 nights in Sydney. Breakfast was wonderful but we found it strange that we couldn't get a coffee anywhere after 10 ish on a Sunday night except for room service. Delivery charges are pretty steep so it was disappointing! Loved the service, all... More

My friend and I recently stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel at The Rocks in Sydney for a girls weekend. The hotel was absolutely fantastic and very well appointed. The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. On check-in we were offered an upgrade free of charge to a room on a higher floor with a complete view of... More

Have stayed at this hotel a number of times for different occasions, number one in Sydney by far. Biggest rooms, best views, separate shower and (big) bath, attentive and professional staff. It's the little things that count such as house keeping / turn down service, bathroom amenities but importantly each time I have organized something for my other half as... More

I stayed here with my wife to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Immaculate room with beautiful views out over the opera house. Not cheap but we got exactly what we were paying for. The only complaint we had was that for Coeliacs, the in room dining menu was very lean for GF options, but this was a minor niggle.
