We booked a one bedroom studio apartment with harbour views, and when they say harbour view they mean harbour view. We had an uninterrupted view of Luna Park, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House...it was truly spectacular. The location of the apartment was also excellent, it is a two minute walk from the McMahon point ferry stop,... More

The decision to stay at Harbourside again was simply a no brainer. Last time it provided an excellent balance from the frenetic atmosphere of the CBD. Again everything was great. We thought that we'd booked a Harbour-view room via on-line booking. Unfortunately we had actually booked a Non Harbour-view room. When we became aware of this we made contact with... More

We booked a two-room apartment to entertain a visitor from the UK with mobility issues, As she couldn't walk around the harbour, we wanted a place with a great view. The views from the 13th floor are STUNNING, and we had one very happy visitor! However, if you want anything more than a view, you'll be disappointed. We had some... More

We stayed in this apartment block after a road trip down the east coast of Australia. We very much appreciated being able to park our car next to the accomodation. We also enjoyed being able to take our bikes on the ferry in and around the harbour. The view from the 10 th floor of the bridge and Opera House... More

We were on the 2nd floor - fabulous views , a quiet comfortable apartment and the position is perfect for exploring Sydney. The free car parking is much appreciated and the apartment was clean, beds comfortable , clean bathroom with fresh towels daily . Unfortunately the slightly musty kitchen needs an upgrade - or at least a good clean -... More

We had arrived in North Sydney by car & lucky for us a quick google search for accommodation on the area found the Harbourside Apartments. We had only stayed one night but the location & views are amazing. Free car parking & the ferry service at your door makes this place a real GEM. The staff were really helpful. I... More

Ive looked at the pictures of other reviewers rooms and wondered at one point if I was actually reviewing the same property. Our room was on the 15th floor and was, put simply - tired in some parts and completely 60's outdated in others. The kitchen, which was far too big and closed off for the size of the apartment...

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.
