Position, position, position. Why anyone on holidays would stay in some dusty street in the CBD or the Rocks in some non entity 5 star hotel when they could be staying at this wonderful hotel on the sparkling Lavender Bay shores? That just about says it all really. Oh, of course the rooms are clean, and well set out, the... More

This was the first place we stayed when we arrived in Australia. Great value compared to Sydney hotels and decent facilities. What really sells this place is the iconic view over the harbour/opera house/bridge/Luna Park (from the rooms towards the front of the building). It is a few hundred metres to McMahons Point ferry stop which gets you to Circular... More

Great location, view and service. Close to everything you may think of: shopping, CBD, cafe district, and city. Overall view of the city, service is perfect, rooms are super clean and comfortable, bar in-suites and room orders available. Ticks all the positives, love it!

The location was great, easy and quick to get to downtown via the ferry with shops and restaurants nearby. Apartment had enough room for the time we stayed with adequate furnishings. Washer and dryer available. Would repeat when/if returning to Sydney. Weekday morning croissants were a nice addition. Is a charge per device for Internet access and access was slow... More

My partner & I stayed midweek for 1 night. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment on the 9th floor. We looked straight at the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Luna Park- fantastic views! The kingsize bed was really comfortable, huge bedroom. The bathroom was basic, we didn't use the kitchen but it had everything you might need if... More

Being Sydney the rate is a little high. The location is 5min walk to a ferry station and 10 min to Luna Park. There is a great view of the bridge and opera house. We stayed on the second floor. The living room and bedrooms were modern. Our kitchen and bathroom needed some work to match the other rooms.

We have returned to Harbourside after a few years away - trying other accommodation options in and around Sydney. However there is really nowhere else like it: proximity to the City but a feeling of light and spaciousness. The apartments are not cheap and work out best for a family with a car (free parking - a huge bonus in... More

Let me start by saying that the minute you arrive at the Harbourside Apartments your breath gets taken away a little. Want Sydney landmarks within view? Check. The Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Luna Park all loom large. There's only one way to travel by Sydney and that's by ferry. Magic. And there's a ferry stop outside your doorstep... More
