Have just spent four nights at the Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel in Millers Point, Sydney. The location and ambience were exactly what we were seeking for our short Sydney stay. Our room on the top floor was clean, very well appointed and offered a most comfortable bed. The bar was atmospheric, as you would expect from such an historic pub,... More

Easy walk to many major sites, ( opera house & weekend market) friendly personnel , very clean, good value. Many interesting restaurants around the hotel, but enjoyed the menu at Lord Nelson. Would suggest reservations at restaurant on weekend. Most of the people I observed eating there were not staying at The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel. Our flight arrived early... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights with another couple, and had a good experience. The location is great and we found it to be a cool experience to stay in a brewery. The breakfast was simple and nice, and we found the staff to be accommodating. As others have indicated, be aware of the flights of stairs... More

We often like staying in B&Bs because you usually get a better local flavor, have a good impartial contact for information on the location, and good food. We did look at other big, nice hotels in the Sydney area but they were going for about $275 AUD per night and up. We tried a few smaller B&Bs, but they were... More

We arrived at the Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel, tired from a long journey. It was after the office hours, so I went to the bar to ask for help. Our room ended up being on the top floor, and no elevator. I started to drag my very heavy suitcase up the stairs, but one of the guys who works in... More

A great atmosphere in a historic pub It combines a brewery - several great beers, good downstairs pub food and a really good upstairs bistro. Also a great place to watch a game of rugby - union - the real stuff! Haven't stayed here but people who... More

My wife and I spent three very enjoyable nights in the Lord Nelson during our visit to Sydney earlier this month. We arrived about midday and were helped in with our luggage by the very friendly bar staff. As we were too early to get into our room they stored the bags whilst we went off to drop off the... More

The Lord Nelson has a lot of things going for it - great location in The Rocks, a pub on site, a great restaurant on site, and rooms upstairs. You couldn't ask for a better combination. Tie this in with friendly service, and you are onto a winner. Good breakfasts too. We stayed in December, and had a very good... More

Great little hotel above The Lord Nelson pub in the rocks. It's a little way away from the main area of the rocks (about 5 minute walk) but that means its nice and quiet. The rooms are recently refurbished and very quiet despite a very popular pub downstairs (this shuts dead on 11pm anyway so not a problem) Breakfast included... More
