Simpsons is a restored late Victorian era mansion, now a beautifully decorated B&B in a quiet street 10 minutes walk from Kings Cross, in Potts Point. If you're looking for somewere a little more personal and intimate than the big hotels, and close to the harbour and city centre, this is excellent value. So close to Kings Cross and its... More

Lovely historic B&B with exquisite large comfy rooms in period décor but with modern conveniences. Clean and ideally located to access the Botanic Gardens. 30 - 40 minute walk to Opera House and Circular Quay. Breakfast was great and served in a welcoming sunny room. Management/Staff are well informed and obviously proud of the establishment.

Beautiful restored mansion in a nice neighborhood. Within walking distance to many upscale restaurants and bars, and a 10 minute walk to the King's Cross subway station. Everything at Simpsons was beautiful. Nice breakfast (thank you for starting breakfast service early!) and great coffee. Recommended.

We loved it here. We had a great room overlooking the road, and the double windows made it quiet. The room was light and roomy. Cleanliness was extremely high by any standards. The downstairs lounge area was a quite, calm place to relax and felt very homely due to the open fireplaces. It is an amazing position right in the... More

When moving a few hours out of Sydney a few years ago we knew we would need a place to stay from time to time when visiting friends, family, theatre etc. Fortunately we found Simpsons and now call it our 'Sydney Home'. Great location handy to the CBD, theatre, terrific range restaurants and close to the harbour. The owners and... More

In an ever increasing pace of life why book into a high spec/ tech highrise with bland service, when you can step inside the graceful world of Simpson's of Potts Point, pour yourself a warming sherry and snuggle up on one of the comfy lounges or chairs in front of the open fireplace and read one of the many good...

This is a grand old mansion, and in a great spot for discovering some of the historical features of old Sydney on foot. Some nice restaurants just up the street and around the corner. The breakfast is magnificent, no need for a cooked breakfast when everything you would want is provided. Enjoyed meeting the helpful owners and staff. Free parking... More

We spent a week at Simpsons from 15 to 20 June 2015. We fell in love with the house (yes, it was more of a house to us) at first sight. There was something about it that made us feel that we was coming home instead of leaving home. Keith, Marie and Ree were the perfect hosts, helping us to... More

What a delight it was to stay at Simpson's Hotel. Luxurious, private and quiet. when a continental breakfast was advertised, we expected the usual tat of cereal and toast but this set us up for the day, with fruit compotes, a varieties of juices, boiled eggs, artisan breads and even smoked salmon plus an endless supply of tea and coffee...

Keith Marie and Ree are dream hosts! So charming - They were brilliant at arranging day trips including Riverboat Postman which few tourists are aware of - if you are considering a stay at this fantabulous hotel DO book this trip. From meeting some guests I can understand why so many re-book. If I return there is nowhere else to... More
