These days it's hard to find a 5 star hotel in a good location, with breakfast included, free wifi and free parking. I was reluctant at first to book the WBBH because Watsons Bay always seems that little bit further. It is of course but the traffic, even on a rainy night was very smooth and added very little extra... More

Loved our Watsons Bay stay in our gorgeous room. That view is to die for. Staff and service excellent. Room lovely and spacious & bathroom sensational with water views from the bath! They have nailed the decor throughout and created a warm welcoming beachy haven. I remember the funny old beer garden from the 70's! Food excellent and fairly reasonably... More

Watson's Bay Pub is a must to visit. It is located right on the foreshore of the infamous Watson's Bay. You can get there by Ferry, Bus or Drive. The view is amazing and the food is fantastic. There are so many fabulous walks around the area to do either before, or maybe just a stroll along the beautiful shores... More

A great spot away from the city but only a 15 minute ferry ride away. We were able to catch a ferry to Manly as well as the city via the best harbour in the world. The room was large with good amenities and overlooked a park. The breakfast (included) had a great choice of items including fresh fruit and... More

We spent three lovely nights and were really impressed with the location, hotel and staff. Albeit there were renovations underway, the staff were most helpful and our experience was unaffected. We had two young children with us and found the parkview loft room perfect. The room was clean and well stocked. Towels fluffy, white and fresh. The continental breakfast was... More

Watson's Bay is one of my favourite places on the planet! Have been going to the hotel & Doyles on the Beach for over 40 years with my family & friends. On our recent stay the Reception/foyer was in disarray due to refurbishment however, did not really distract from the overall stay. The location, views, ambiance etc are superb. We... More

A great spot to stay. I stayed with my husband when we went to a wedding at Dunbar House. It's very convenient to Dunbar House. We stayed in a room at the side of the hotel and the price on a Thursday was quite good (it's higher on weekends). I looked around and booked through Wotif as it had the... More
