This place gets positive reviews solely on the view, which is absolutely 100% spectacular. However I think this view has meant that less attention is paid by the owners to ensuring everything else is good. When I checked in I found a cockroach running along the curtain. I took a photo and showed the young lady at the counter and... More

First time visiting Sydney and this hotel did not disappoint! We arrived when it was dark so it was a little tricky to find in the hire car but once we found it we were blown away. The location of this hotel is so central with a ferry point 30 seconds walk away. The lovely receptionist (can't remember her name... More

Our biggest problem with this place was there was no air conditioning in the rooms. I think there is a general expectation when you are paying $250 dollars for a small studio apartment that air conditioning would be provided. The hotel needs to be more transparent about this on their room descriptions as rooms were stifling in Sydney summer days... More

We were given room 77 on the top floor with no previous knowledge or expectations so were delighted with our apartment which faced the river, Harbour Bridge and city. Amazing! Comfortable bed, great kitchen, nice bathroom and 3 windows to gaze out of and be entertained at all times of the day and night.

This is our "home away from home" and I cannot speak more highly of the perks of McMahons Point Harbourside Apartments. Incredible views without the noise of the city; the amazing ladies at the front desk who look after us on our every visit and the sheer convenience of having everything in walking distance (or Ferry stop distance) that you...

Stopped for three nights in a two bed harbour view apartment on the 11th floor (no 56) The views are incredible and are why you should pay the extra - it really is worth the money. The apartment was very comfortable and clean, and had everything we needed. There is no air-con or free wi-fi. The ceiling fans cooled the... More

Location plus these apartments. Beautiful veiw of the Harbour and all it has to offer. The ferry stop is just there like it's your own private jetty. So convenient to get around. The apartments are not flash but comfortable with everything you need. Staff are friendly and helpful. Tip though don't get a driver from the airport. It cost us... More

We spent three nights in the apartments in a one bedroomed apart on the seventh floor with great views of the Opera a House and bridge. Clean, comfortable and spacious. Super location in terms of ferry which provides access to Circular Quay, Lunar Park and Darling Harbour which is literally a two minute walk from the reception. Nice pool with... More

We have been coming to Harbourside for nearly 30years whenever we have visited friends and family in Sydney. The apartments are comfortable and well maintained. Because they are owned by separate individuals the quality of fittings and furniture varies. Some are becoming a bit dated now and some are more contemporary. Generally they all function well. The worst season to... More
