The view has to be the best on all Sydney. The staff was amazing, the location is as convenient as it gets with access to the ferry, bus in a 3 minute walk from the lobby door. The apartment itself was spotless, with all ammenities needed to sleep, cook and do anything you would normally do at home.

This place is a little star and a great alternative from the blandness of the big CBD hotels. Located in the harbour side suburb of McMahon's Point it sits beside the ferry wharf overlooking the Opera House and bridge. I used to live in the suburb and it's a great little community with a few good pubs and restaurants on... More

Magic location. Went to sleep watching the lights of Sydney and Luna park dance on the harbour as last ferry chugged revellers home. Woke to the sight of sails on the harbour and the glistening tiles of the Opera house all framed by the magnificent harbour bridge. Hard to imagine any better city view anywhere in the world. And it... More

I have been staying in hotels in Sydney for a long time. I wouldn't have if I knew this gem existed. Spacious apartments, everything you need plus lovely touches like a basket of fresh pastries at reception each morning. Right outside is the ferry terminal. It's perfect.

What a wonderful place to stay where can you see the Harbour Bridge from your Kitchen right next door! We booked a studio apartment and received a one bedroom apartment which was very much appreciated. We did see the studio apartments and they were very nice. Up to the minute kitchen with all appliances and very clean. Would thoroughly recommend.... More

My wife and I stayed recently for 4 weeks with two of our daughters joining us for part of the time. From arrival onwards( from the UK) tired and jet lagged, the reception by staff was outstanding. Without exception they were most helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Any additional requirements were met promptly with charm and good grace.... More

If you are looking for a clean, quiet, self contained hotel with the absolute best waterfront position in Sydney then this one is for you. However, if you are more the five star service and fancy restaurant type, then this one may not suit. This Hotel contains studio and one bedroom apartments. The key feature is that you won't get...

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 How could such a marvellously situated apartment block be allowed to be so out-of-date?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

harbourside82, Manager at Harbourside Apartments, responded to this review

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
