I would highly recommend this pub to anyone & everyone that goes to Sydney. They had one of the biggest selection of beers I'd ever seen and the staff were really knowledgeable. On the subject of staff, it was so good to see people loving what they do. Everyone was enthusiastic, friendly & welcoming. The pub itself is quite old... More

Stayed hear in Jan,knew it wasn't going to be a modern hotel but boutique/heritage,rooms were quaint with character,no aircon! It's ideally suited to visit key sights such as Sydney Harbour Bridge or Opera House,and for circular key and ferries. Biggest issue was the noise level,I knew that being a pub it wasn't going to be dead quite,but is it really... More

The rooms are very tired and neglected. Dusty, smelly, no air con and a fan that barely turned. So hot! The carpet is dirty and stained with dust built up along the edges. The bed sheets were clean however the bed itself was saggy and uncomfortable. Behind the bed was what appeared to be years of built up dust. There... More

We first came here 12 years ago and they served great pizza, with good beer in a really good pub. We've been a couple of times since including last week and nothing has changed. Give them a ring in advance and they will save you a table outside. Also, they do gluten free pizzas, needed for my daughter, but it's... More

I recently visited the restaurant/cafe attached to this hotel as part of a group having a Christmas re-union. Generally, I am not an admirer of the Sydney pub restaurant scene with its pretentious and overpriced meals but this is an exception. The bill of fare is based around gourmet pizzas but with other main meals offered. While most of our... More

Just there for the night, nice and clean, quiet, bathroom down the hall and shared. We liked the cosy feel of the old building. Also liked the easy access to The Rocks and also Darling Harbour, however this was a 25-30 minute walk away Would stay again :-) thanks also to the friendly staff.

The Australian is located in The Rocks, which is a 10 minute walk from CircularQuay, where you can get the ferries and trains. A short walk will also bring you to the Sydney bridge climb. We stayed two nights. The hotel rooms are clean, very basic & very old. They are small, just room for a bed, chair and wardrobe.... More

In Sydney with a friend and on a tight budget ... very pleased with The Australian Heritage Hotel. Clean, simple, yet homey atmosphere. Very close to Circular Quay and Opera House as well as easy access by train from Wynyard Station (almost flat walk of 800m). Would definitely stay again.

Stopped in here for dinner and drinks after exploring the Rocks with a local friend. The atmosphere was vibrant and busy. I ordered the Macaroni bake...and my he ordered the Kangaroo pepper pizza. The Macaroni bake was not that impressive and I should have gone with the kangaroo pepper pizza. He was nice enough to share but I learned my... More
