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

This is one of the best views in Sydney and the reasonable prices mean you're not really paying any more than you would for a room in the city without a view. Also very handily located right on the McMahons Point ferry terminal so easy to catch a ferry into the city or Darling Harbour.... very friendly staff. Free papers... More

This is a great place to stay when you visit Sydney. It is located on the harbour and there are great views of the Opera House and the Sydney Bridge. You can take a ferry boat across the harbour to the city. The rooms are nice. There is also a decent pool area outside. I have stayed here many times... More

My partner and I stayed at Harbour Side apartments for a weekend away not long ago. On arrival at reception, we paid for our accommodation and were advised that a holding deposit was required. This was not an issue as many hotels require this, so we were happy to pay it. When I asked the receptionist how much the holding... More

Clean and relatively cheap accommodation close to North Sydney. Great views out over the harbour from one side of the building. Good location for ferry at McMahon's point but a good uphill walk to North Sydney. Can be a bit chilly in the winter.

Stayed in a 1 bed with harbourview. Great location and great views with easy access to Circular Key, Darling Harbour and North Sydney - ferries, buses and walking. However Sydney experienced a very cold spell so heating was a concern. Requested a second heater which was promptly delivered. No issues with anything else (including hot water - I never stand...
