The view does not appease the shambles. Stayed there with family, 4 adults. 'Resting on their laurels' springs to mind. How could such a marvellously situated apartment block be allowed to be so out-of-date? No Air Conditioning in Sydney, in the middle of their summer, when temperatures were in high 80's F, with high humidity? Ridiculous. Uncomfortable. Then, a day... More

In response to your review, your account of your stay seems to be extremely inaccurate of the events which took place. In reviewing all events with staff, I have found that we tried to offer the very best customer service during your stay; unfortunately all attempts were not well received. I understand there was an issue with the hot water,... More

As others all say, this hotel must have one of the best views in the world - and to top it just after we arrived at sunset, there was a firework display over by the Opera House. Welcome to Sydney! In other respects mostly all pluses.The receptionists were friendly and helpful, our studio room I think had been recently refurbished,... More

We had a one bedroom apartment for the week, and found the view to be sensational ! Best ever location, right on the Ferry route over to Circular Quay. Very well fitted out, even though a little dated, it was well worth the money. Great value. Close to many restaurants, shops ( who sell lots of good takeaway Pasta meals... More

OMG we loved this place. Stayed here overnight due to close proximity to the Mater Hospital for day surgery but wow what a find. Building itself is dated but has been refurbished. Older style apartment but well done.. Not flash but more than adequate but this is outweighed by the views. Lovely quiet spot next to Mcmahons Point ferry wharf... More

We stayed on the 16th floor of this lovely hotel with views of the harbour and lavender bay that were so magnificent. We were right on a ferry stop and rode various ferries during our stay which were much more fun than other transport and seemed to arrive the minute we sat on the wharf. We could hear the screams...

Stayed for two nights in a 2 bedroom harbour view apartment. The location offers the most magical views of sydney harbour and is situated at lavendar bay. The apartment was very well appointed. Very comfortable bedding and modern decor. The staff were always helpful. We had a fabulous stay and will definitely return.

This is the third time we have booked an apartment here. We can only say that the view from the apartments showing the harbour and Lavender Bay are just stunning, that is why we chose to sta here again. We decided not to go out and eat as you could certainly find no better location. It is also so easy... More

This is the most amazing apartment in all of Sydney. The view is just breathtaking, an unobstructed view of all the best features of Sydney's Harbour including the bridge, Opera House, Luna Park & if you get a corner room Darling Harbour...you don't need to go anywhere, just sit & watch the world go by. Love the pool, and the... More

The location of these apartments is perfect. Situated on McMahons Point directly opposite both the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. We took a harbour view apartment, and there is nothing nicer than looking out your window to see one of the best harbours in the world! There is a pool for guest use, and also BBQ facilities. Best time... More
