The location is spectacular with sweeping harbour views taking in the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Luna Park and the city. I have stayed here numerous times and always find the staff welcoming and efficient. The apartments are comfortable and I love having a little kitchen to prepare treats purchased at Blues Pt Rd gourmet grocers. The pool is also located... More

Watch out if you come here following GPS! There are two Henry Lawson Avenues in Sydney! Take the one near the bridge and opera house. An excellent stay here during the hostage crisis. Did not have any noticeable effect on the ferries which are right next to the appartments. Clean, beautiful views, comfortable an friendly staff. Managed to cut myself... More

This was our second time staying at the apartments and we weren't disappointed once again. We really like how you can have all the sounds and sights of the harbour from your own lounge and bedroom windows that open out up for fresh air. We had a view of Luna Park and Nth Sydney from the lounge room this time... More

The view is unbelievable. However, the apartments are very tired. Hot water in my shower was just warm, and the older lady in reception just did not care. The lead from the toaster could not reach the PowerPoint. I had to put the toaster on top of a saucepan. Really? OH&S issue I think? For the price, I would have... More

Wow, Wow, Wow......my sister and I stayed at the Harbourside Apartments McMahons Point for 4 days, 3 nights. We felt like we were living a dream. The location alone is so wonderful, but then we had the view (not the Harbour Bridge) overlooking Lavender Bay and Luna Park. We only had to walk outside to sit on the wharf and... More

2nd time visitor for three nights, utilised one bedroom Lavender Bay view and and a two bedroom Harbourview apartment. Clean, modern, quiet, comfy beds, kitchen facilities. I thought the price was reasonable considering the amazing view of bridge, waterside pool/jetty facilities, great for water taxi or easy ferry ride to Circular Quay. Front desk staff were very friendly, easy going,... More

Spent a weekend recently, great location, facilities and great staff make this a great place to stay and close to transport with the McMahons Point ferry a 2 minute walk away, last but not least the awesome harbour view from our apartment.

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!
