Had a great evening sitting outside as they have heaters with good choice of beers, wine and variety of pizzas. Food tasted great but the pizzas arrived at a variety of times so it got a little cold waiting. Loved the atmosphere and would definitely go back again.

Having just completed a lengthy Rocks walk on a wet Friday evening, the Australian Hotel just doors from our accommodation, was the perfect choice for a relaxing meal. This was our first visit to the Australian, and on this Friday night there was no illusion of the popularity of this Sydney watering hole. The hotel was jumping, both inside and... More

Step back in time with a visit to The Australian! I've only visited the bar here, never stayed on the hotel, but I always come back for more! It's a traditional pub, with two levels which makes it really unique! The staff are always really friendly and they can recommend a good beer! There's a huge variety of bottled beer!... More

Only stayed one night here for a gig in Sydney. The hotel is really easy to walk to from circular quay train station but there's a lot of steps. I went into the bar to ask for reception and one of the staff looked after me, even carrying my bag up stairs for me. The room was fine. Bedclothes were... More

We had just arrived in Sydney for a month holiday in Aus & NZ to celebrate my 60th b-day. We found the people in Sydney to be absolutely wonderful, helpful, gracious, fun, interesting and down to earth. As we strolled about, we wondered on in to this great historical bar, which just happened to be part of this hotel. Since... More

My expectations were actually exceeded by this hotel as it doesn't rank highly on tripadvisor. The room is quaint with a vintage, old-world appearance. The lighting in the room was a little dim (I suppose this provides a romantic feel). The room was clean and tidy and bed was actually quite comfortable. The shared bathrooms are a little cramped and... More

Great location, great food (the salt water crocodile pizza was amazing) and friendly staff. I met up with a few friends whilst traveling to Sydney for the trivia night here. This was an excellent evening with a great atmosphere. Food was great and a huge range of beers. I would recommend this location to anyone visiting Sydney. I recently moved... More

We were recommended to try their pizza by several people and they were right to steer us here. It's a typical pub serving food with many different brews on offer. We went for the pizza. They had lots to choose from. The base was good, you can get gluten free too. The toppings were plentiful. If you order chips you... More

We specially come to this place to try their Kangaroo and Emu pizza (Coat of Arms)! It tastes pretty good! We also ordered Tandoori Chiken Pizza, chicken wings and salad. Overall not bad! Non-Aussies should at least give their specialty pizzas a try!

Excellent location in the rocks. The rooms are basic but clean. The lounge room is comfortable and breakfast was included. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food served in the bar is delicious and they have a massive range of beers.
