The apartments are fine. Great location adjacent to the ferry terminal. Nice area of Sydney. Friendly staff and the parking was excellent. The apartment we stayed was south facing and wasnt airconditioned (unsure if this is the case for all) and in mid-winter it was freezing. They provide an electric heater but it couldn't keep up. We had to get... More

Stayed four nights. We were upgraded to a room with a harbour view and it really was a stunning view! We watched fireworks over the Opera house and bridge from bed, bliss! The apartment was nice, clean, and had a well equipped kitchen. We borrowed a cot for our stay for an additional charge of $15 per night.

Have stayed here several times and have always gone for the harbour view one bedroom apartment. Always a fantastic experience. You just take in the whole harbour and you are looking straight at the bridge watching the water traffic and occasional super boat arrive. Rooms are good and it is full kitchen so we always shop first at Crows Nest... More

Absolutely awesome apartments - sensational absolute waterfront with incredible views of the Sydney waterfront from Luna Point around to Darling Harbour. Rooms were clean, comfortable and did I mention the views.......wow!

Absolute waterfront with uninterrupted views of the bridge and harbour. These are apartments so there is plenty of room and a kitchen to make life easier. We walked 50m to McMahons Point ferry wharf to catch the ferry to Circular Quay. Dinner was the dial a restaurant service recommended on the fridge - quick, easy and tasty. Dinner arrived within...

We stayed in this apartment building end of March 2014. We stayed on floor 8 in an apartment overlooking the Harbour bridge. What a way to wake up each morning drinking coffee looking out at the Bridge, Opera House and Central Quay. Fantastic and much quieter (and cheaper) than a central Sydney hotel. Rooms are well appointed with an open... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and were most impressed with one small exception - there was no toaster in our room and I was informed that this was not an oversight, but a management decision. The view from our apartment on the 16th floor was fantastic. Parking is a problem. The establishment has a 3 storey... More

Dear Conner2011 Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay at Harbourside. I have inspected all apartments on the 16th floor and all have a toaster within the apartment. We do place some appliances in the cupboards in various apartments to keep the kitchen area minimal and tidy. I can assure you that it is not a management decision... More

The views from our apartment were unbelievable - felt like you could reach out and touch the harbour bridge. 1 min walk to the ferry to access the rest of Sydney. Beds were comfy and apartment had all the items needed for a good holiday. Only real complaint would be there was no airconditioning - it would be very hot... More

Though the self-contained appartments need modernization and I'd judge the staff average for Oz on service, and though you have to pay for wi-fi, in real estate, as everyone knows, its location, location, location! - and you'd be hard pressed to find a more conveniently placed hotel for the price in Sydney. The city ferries stop 30 metres from the... More
