This character building in a quaint but convenient location has friendly staff. But the room was average and the bathroom and in-room amenities were below average. Hate showers in bathtubs, no storage in the bathroom for your toiletries. Balancing a kettle on the edge of a basin isn't acceptable, neither is instant coffee. Scarlett restaurant for breakfast has a basic... More

I was really impressed when I entered the hotel ,old wooden entrance , straight into a lounge area with sofas and library and complimentary iced tea ! Small reception desk tucked around the corner with very friendly and helpful staff. Just my kind of place . Heritage has been retained but with added comforts of modern living . This is... More

I stayed at the hotel while on business in Sydney and it was a bit of a luxury stay as my boss was staying too and so he chose the hotel. The hotel was impeccable as was the service - it was a little noisy but then the location is a popular tourist spot. Waking up in the morning with... More

A lovely hotel in a prime location. All the staff were most helpful and friendly and always greeted us with a smile. The room was spacious, clean with very good facilities, including a fantastic shower, which is a big plus point for me. The breakfast was delicious with a lovely buffet including pastries and fresh fruit and an a la... More

We stayed 5 nights in this very friendly hotel. Service was very good and the room was comfortable, though an easy chair would have been nice. Of the 5 nights we were there we were disturbed 3 times by noise from a nearby bar which had live music on. Once that had finished it was replaced by the sound of... More

From the moment i walked in i was surprised with the Bar and Reception Area being all in one - It was great! It felt like i had been invited into someones home rather than a hotel. Two Girls are reception (Blonde & Brunette(?)) were nice and helpful with everything. Also gave a late checkout on request which was much... More

The service was great. The rooms were really clean and tidy. The location was really handy to the city and only a short walk. We loved the style of the place and the architecture was amazing. We will be back again very soon as we enjoyed our stay and the staff were great.

We arrived at the Harbour Rocks Hotel around 8am never expecting to be able to book in so early. Hugh immediately arranged to swap our original room for one already available. The room was immaculate, light and airey with beautiful crisp bed linen and heaps of white fluffy towels. The Appelles bathroom products smelt beautiful.

Well kept hotel, nice rooms (each room is different as the hotel is in a refurbished building), excellent staff. Their terrace is a nice, quite place to unwind between sightseeing jaunts in the Rocks area. Opera house is a walk away, as is the Sydney bridge. The staff puts things over the top here - accommodating and very friendly. We... More

Not a bland corporate hotel, lovely old building, nice decor reflecting history of building. Decent air con and great staff. Excellent location for the harbour. Busy bar but quietened down by 10pm. Only improvement would be having an in room safe and more generous wifi however all local restaurants have free wi fi so unless needed for business purposes this... More
