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.

Definitely touristy, but affordable for the neighborhood and a quirky way to try some Australian game (e.g. emu, crocodile and kangaroo on pizza.) Service is friendly, pizza if decent and drinks are affordable.

We stayed here for four nights and being in The Rocks it was very convenient. We wanted to stay in this area as we were running the Sydney marathon so wanted to be near the start and finish. The room was very comfortable and the lounge area was much appreciated after falling ill and needing somewhere to relax that wasn't... More

What a delight to step inside. This was just a fantastic place to stay in the Rocks District of Sydney. Adorable room, lounge was a great place to relax at the end of the day. Ate at the bar and it was delicious. I will be back and given the location, can't ask for more. ** I did have earplugs... More

En route to the Bridge, slightly away from the general Rocks hubbub, limited variety of food but I recommend the large (12" / six slices) kangaroo/ crocodile and ostrich pizzas & beer in pints! Great atmosphere and service. :)
