What a gem! It's hard to believe it's 2014 when you wake up and walk down to breakfast. I had to check the date on the newspaper. You will feel like a distant cousin come to visit with your surprisingly elegant relatives from down under. For something that is so close to the city mornings are peaceful, birdsong and the... More

Last summer I had booked into another establishment which turned out to be awful and booked at Simpsons the night before I wanted to move there just to get out of the other. The room was not ready (only had a few hours notice) but they were willing to look after my belongings as soon as I could get there... More

During April and May 2014, we stayed a total of seven nights at Simpsons Hotel, at the beginning and end of a five week trip to Australia. The hotel is in a lovely 19th century house, beautifully restored and decorated and ideally located in the Potts Point area of Sydney, close to restaurants and shops and the King's Cross train...

We stayed at this lovely atmospheric hotel at the end of our three months in Australia. Keith was very knowledgeable and helpful about our stay. He knew the area well, and pointed us to a most excellent fish restaurant a 100 metres down the road. They were all very kind to us during our stay. Ann especially made us very... More

Thanks Andrew! Yes, we are very conveniently situated, here in Potts Point. Marie walks to work every day, near the Queen Victoria Building in George Street, and it takes her about 20-minutes door-to-door! And it is a beautiful walk along the harbour foreshore and through the Domain Park into Martin Place. Thanks for taking the time to review us !... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Simpsons. We were well taken care of in a charming, beautifully restored old home by truly delightful people! We enjoyed a lovely breakfast every morning in a welcoming sun room. We definitely recommend a visit!

We have been staying at Simpsons when in Sydney for quite a while now. It is a lovely place in every way: the grand Queen Anne / Arts and Crafts building; the striking decoration, especially the hung art; and most of all the friendly but professional attentions of Keith, Ree and Damian. It is great value and really, for us,... More

We couldn't have asked for a better hotel and staff. Keith was filled with advice, facts and knowledge; and helped us plan day trips through sydney. Not to mention that Potts Point was such a lovely area and place to be. We had a truly great experience.

The Simpsons is a little gem, well appointed, great established old home, very comfortable, quiet with welcoming and thoughtful hosts. Perfect for both business and leisure....... The location is great with good restaurants nearby and an quirky bottle shop around the corner if you are after something interesting on the wine front. The CBD is a +-25 mins walk away... More
