Keith and Ree excellent hosts. The rooms are quiet, beds comfortable, plenty for breakfast and so close to all the attractions of sydney we just loved... More

This was my second stay at Simpsons and easily as good as the last experience. For me it's a perfect Sydney choice for location, service and rooms. It's peaceful and quiet and yet close to the city and very close to excellent cafes and restaurants and beautul harbour walks. Thank you again Keith and Ree

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
