We stayed in one of the deluxe Queen suites. It was really nice, with its own vestibule and dressing area. The house is a period mansion and is incredibly charming and comfortable. The hosts are very welcoming and make you feel like you have come home. The position is terrific, within easy walking distance of the Botanic Gardens, Circular Quay,... More

My husband and found this venue to be perfect for many reasons. Breakfast was delicious and our access to the rest of Sydney's attractions nearby by foot or short taxi trip. The weather was a bit rainy and humid but the room was comfortable without air-conditioning.

We stayed for five nights and will definitely return. Secluded restful location but so close to wonderful restaurants, interesting shops, casual cafés and 10 minute walk to Kings Cross station. 40 minute really scenic walk to Opera House.

Our second stay and again faultless. The owner operators and staff make you feel like family returning home. Excellent location, boutique and extremely comfortable. If you are looking for a sophisticated and relaxed vacation or just accommodation for business you are in good hands at Simpsons of Potts Point. .

The comfort of this Victorian home is only matched by the warm welcome from its owners and hosts. Well-located near busy Sydney centre, Simpsons is part of a cosy tree-lined neighbourhood with excellent restaurants, bookstore and other services. Great conversations occur in the atrium breakfast room and the more sedate living rooms, complete with a drop of sherry. A perfect... More

Thankyou Tina from Ottawa ! Your comments echo the response I just gave to the previous Reviewer ! We do get fascinating people stay with us, and have noted very interesting conversations flowing from chance meetings!

We stayed 9 nights at Simpsons while travelling round the world and can honestly say that it exceeded all expectations in terms of location, comfort and friendly atmosphere. We hate staying in large impersonal chain hotels and Simpsons is the perfect example of a personal style small hotel in a beautifully restored late 19th Century building. Our room, the Ellis...

We seem to attract a lot of very interesting guests, which in turn makes it interesting for other guests. We... More

Simpsons is a wonderful guesthouse/bed and breakfast in a beautiful old building. It's like a step back in time when you walk inside. Our room was large and nicely decorated, with a very comfortable bed. The ensuite was roomy enough but the taps had to turned off very tightly to stop a drip. Breakfast has plenty of options but hot... More

Thankyou GMell ! Having car-parking (albeit limited) is a major advantage in this area, where parking is very difficult to find, especially on busy nights towards the weekend. We note that one of our colleague hotels charges $35.00 per night to park, and at the Woolloomooloo Blue Hotel, the short-term valet parking is $50.00 ! We do not charge for... More

This elegant old house feels more like a private home than a hotel. The rooms are a good size - ours had a sofa and coffee table - but not grand luxe. The bathroom is a bit small but everything works perfectly. The biggest draw are the hoteliers, Marie and Keith. They're totally down to earth, utterly charming and always... More

Thankyou Boundary Rider ! It is gratifying to receive personal compliments like this. Thankyou. Yes, "Simpsons" is not grand-luxe, more like a comfortable well-worn shoe ! Maybe showing the signs of age, but too good to throw away, and a relief to get back into ! And yes, our healthy breakfast buffet is well enjoyed by most guests, and is... More

Just what was needed after a long flight. Relaxing and peaceful introduction to sydney. Lovely large room. Great bathroom. Most comfortable bed. Lots of restaurants in area and close to local shops. Quiet. Overall a pleasant relaxing stay - great antidote to everyday life!
